Anti Martingale System
Before reading this you should look at the Martingale system. This system is designed for use on the even chance bets on a roulette table but can be used on any even chance bets Concept Playing the Anti-Martingale is precisely what the name suggests, it's the Martingale in reverse. Instead of doubling your bets after a losing spin you double your bet after a winning spin.
Basically you place a bet on an even chance and 'let it ride' for a set number of spins. Before starting the system you must decide how many spins you are going to play for, alternatively you may decide to remove your winnings when your nerve breaks or even remove part of the winnings after a number of spins and let the remaining bet continue for a little bit longer. The Catch you will go through long periods of time losing 1 unit per session, but when you win you will win big. The main catch behind this system is the hidden fact that the house edge affects every spin and not just your original 1 unit bet.
Let us assume you are going to place $1 on 'red' and 'let it ride' for 10 spins before removing your winnings. If the session ends with a win you will have placed $1,023 in bets (1+2+4+8+16+32+64+128+256+512=1023) and you will pick up $1,024, unfortunately the house edge works on every single spin whether you win or lose and will eventually catch up with you in the long run.
The house edge on a single zero wheel for $1,023 of bets works out at about $28, if you continue to play for long enough this win will actually end up costing you $28. With level bets of $1 over the same 10 spins the house edge would take only $0.0973, of course your short term win would only be $10 - systems are all about altering short term risk and reward, the house edge always remains the same.
The Anti-Martingale offers you the chance to win a lot of money from a small stake, but the price for these big payoffs are that you don't get any small payoffs to keep your bankroll intact. If your prepared to lose your bankroll slowly but steadily with the possibility that you will hit a big win occasionally then the Anti-Martingale may be worth a try.
Always remember that when you have built up a large stake and it's still sitting on the 'red' bet that you are NEVER playing with the casinos money - if you can cash in and walk out the door then the money is YOURS.
