Why The Martingale System Will Never Work

You may already have heard (or even played with) the Martingale Betting System, as it is the most popular betting system in Roulette and other games of chance.


In case you don’t know it yet, it’s very simple. You place a bet on Red (or Black) in Roulette, for example $5. If you win, then you continue to bet $5. But when you lose, you double your bet. And you keep doubling your bet until you win. For example you bet those $5 and lose. You will then bet $10. If you win, you go back to $5. But if you lose, you then have to bet $20. Lost again? So it’s $40. Then $80. Then $160. And then $320, then $640, and so on, until you finally win one of these bets, then you resort back to $5.


In theory, you will eventually win. But how much can you win? Just the initial bet of $5. And how much do you have to bet? After eight lost bets in a row, you already have to bid $1,280. That’s a lot of money to just win $5, isn’t it? So there is a misbalance between risk and reward in this strategy. To make things worse, casinos have minimum and maximum bets. This means that you cannot double up forever, but usually just five to eight times. This means that in rare occurrences, you will be very unlucky and then lose your complete bets.


And that is why I don’t recommend using the Martingale System. I’d rather recommend the Anti-Martingale Betting System, which I’m explaing here!

Good luck!
