Betting systems

There have been many betting systems over time that promotes the idea that you can beat the casino by various wagering techniques. All have been tested and none have been found that will allow you to gain that edge needed to be a consistent winner over the casino. Here are the major systems that have been around for many years.

Martingale: This is one of the most widely used systems of betting and one of the simplest ones. The betting strategy, multiplicative in nature, requires the gambler to double his bet after each loss until he wins, then he starts over.

Anti-Martingale: This system requires that you double your bets after a win instead of a loss, just the reverse of the Martingale above. There is a high probability of a small loss and a small probability of a huge win. When you lose a bet you have wiped out your wins plus one unit.                     
 
D’Alembert: A simple linear system named after the eighteenth century theorist Jean le Rond d’Alembert. He believed that if a fair coin landed on heads for a long run, that tails was more probable. In the system bearing his name, you raise your bet by a fixed amount if you lose and lower it by a fixed amount if you win. It could look like this in practice, raising or lowering by one each time: bet 1, lose and bet 2, win and bet 1, lose and bet 2, lose and bet 3, lose again, bet 4, win, bet 3 ad infinitum. The final result is the same: you lose.

Anti-D’Alembert: This system adds or subtracts a fixed sum depending on whether the previous bet was a winner or loser. It adds the sum for a winner and subtracts the sum for a loser.

Labouchere: Also known as the cancellation system. A sequence of numbers, say 1,2,3,4, is chosen. The first bet is the total of the two numbers on the end, or 5 units in this example. If the bet is lost, the lost bet now becomes the last number of the new sequence, 1,2,3,4,5. The next bet is now the sum of the new first and last number. In the above example: 6. If the bet is won, the first and last number in the sequence are canceled, in this case with the sequence 1,2,3,4, the 1 and 4 are canceled and, the next bet is the sum of the two non-canceled numbers, 2 and 3. If you win, you proceed to the inside numbers until they are all canceled out. Again, a loser, but an insidious one.

Anti-Labouchere: The opposite of the Labouchere system above, adding a term to the sequence after a win and canceling the last two terms of a sequence after a loss.
