The Martingale System

One of the most enjoyable and refreshing casino games is live roulette, it is a game of luck and chance with simple and easy rules. However, in order to increase the chances of winning while playing roulette, many people believe in taking help of the different roulette systems that are widely available. Most of these systems are for sale and can be found online.

A very popular roulette system is the Martingale system. The origin of this betting system can be traced back to 18th century France. Till now several roulette players use this system; the martingale system has also given rise to many other roulette betting systems.

According to the Martingale system, the player is supposed to double his bet whenever he faces a loss so as to recover the loss as well as make a profit equal to the betting amount. However, to follow this system truly, the player needs to have a huge bankroll. However, the casinos, in order to protect themselves against the Martingale system, usually have a maximum betting limit beyond which the players cannot go. As a result, the players cannot apply the Martingale system perfectly. Another limitation is that it is very rare that players play with unlimited bankroll which is required in case of this system.

Though the system is very popular among the players, there are several flaws in the system. It is true that the system can help you to recover the cost, but it is only good as a short term strategy. Moreover, in order to recover a small initial amount, sometimes players end up risking hundreds of dollars. For example, if an initial bet of 10 is lost, the nest betting amount would be 20. If that is also lost, the betting amount increases to 40 according to the system and the following amount would be 80 and so on.

Roulette is a gamble and there are no systems, including the Martingale system, which can guarantee a win. By doubling the bets, you are actually increasing the chances of loss; the Martingale system can actually end up making you lose all your money within a few minutes if you are on a losing streak.

Roulette systems can only increase your chances of winning and not guarantee a win. It is true that the Martingale system can help you to win large amount within a few minutes if you are luck, but it can also wipe you out. So, when using the system, play wisely and carefully.
