# Thread: anyone using Martingale Strategy?

1. ## anyone using Martingale Strategy?

Hey guys! Is anyone using Martingale Strategy? Does it work?

2. Hi amoser

Martingale Strategy? Does it work?
For casinos...yes For players...no it does not.

You can read some more on the Martingale system here, or on other roulette systems here.

Key thing to always remember with roulette is that every spin is a independent event, and every possible bet for that event has a house edge.

In the absence of an exploitable wheel bias you're unlikely to win long term. Doesn't mean you can't have good wins in the short term though.

4. Some advise now for those who would like to use this path.

1. Prefer the French roulette. If the 0 comes out, you will lose only half of your bet if you picked a color (or any bet with 50% chances to win). So, the house edge is reduced by half when playing the martingal (about 1.8%).

2. Before playing, fix your own limit. Calculate in advance how many bets in a row you are really ready to lose and keep your limit. Otherwise, you can finish homeless.

3. After two losses in a row, switch table and casino and double your bet in another casino. You are a easy target for the casinos when playing Martingale so by switching casinos after two losses in a row, they won't have time to cheat on you. Trust me, magically, you will improve your winning.

4. You can test easily if the method is working or not.

Let's say you start betting at 10 cents. Then, for the first time, you are going to make for example a 10\$ bet. Check your winning. If you already won for example 30\$, that's clearly mean the method is working, you are on good track. And the day, you reach your limit, it doesn't matter, you already win more than what you spend . You just need to restart a cycle from the beginning .

But if you won only let's say 4\$. Clearly the method is not working. You are going to bet 10\$, it is no different as if it is your 1st bet. But if you win, your balance will be maybe only 4.5\$ (depending on the progression you are following) and if you lose, your balance might be something like -19.5\$. Then, you bet 20\$, your balance will be either 4.5\$ or -39.5\$. If 10\$ was your first bet, your balance could be +10\$ or -10\$ (instead of +4.5\$ or -19.5\$) and after a 20\$ bet, your balance would be +10\$ or -30\$ (instead of +4.5\$ or -39.5\$). So, if your limit is for example a bet at 100\$, the day you will reach it, you would have won less money than what you lose and even less money by starting with 10 cents bet than if you started with 10\$ bet so clearly, the method was garbage...

5. 1. Prefer the French roulette

Not so sure about the rest.
