THE PROFIT INCREASER
Ready for some good news? A chance to make a small fortune? Yes, it does exist, so why not shoot for it? If you play long enough and survive the slumps, you will catch some breaks here and there.
LET’S ASSUME YOU HAVE STUDIED HARD, PUT IN SOME HOURS WITH PAPER TRIALS AT HOME AND PRACTICED PLAYING FOR SMALL CHIPS. YOU UNDERSTAND THE SELECTION PROCESS AND THE WAGERING PLANS THOROUGHLY; YOU ARE WELL CAPITALIZED AND YOU HAVE A DEFINITE PLAN.
The PROFIT INCREASER is used only when out of debt and back to base with a profit. Then, when you are a bit ahead, you can be more aggressive than when playing to recover losses (take a shot at them with the casino’s own money!). At this point there is no danger to losing your initial bankroll.
When the game is see-sawing back and forth, you play very cautiously, of course. When winning and playing WHILE YOU ARE AHEAD, that is the time to play more aggressively.
The secret to shooting for a big gain is to play smart and not give back all of your winnings. A lot of people think the way to go is to let it ride and try for a big killing. The problem is, only one loser brings it all crashing down.
Here is one way: On even money plays it is a good idea to make the bets into parlays, meaning two winners in a row constitute a winner. This pays 3 to 1.
Suppose the first parlay wins. The 1 unit brought back 4 units, or a profit of three. The next bet is 2 units, or the halfway point of the previous parlay. If this one loses, there is still a profit of one from the first parlay and no real harm done, so back to the base you go.
But, if the second parlay wins, this will add a profit of 6 units. The halfway point on the next parlay was 4 so the next bet is 4. Again, if the parlay loses, there is still a PROFIT.
If that wins, go up another notch.
If you work out this parlay Profit Increaser on paper, you will see that the profit gets very interesting anytime you hit a run of 10 or more winners in a row. Hardly a night goes by at dice or roulette and you do not encounter a run of 8 or 10 winners in a row. About once a week you will see runs in excess of 15 or more. About once a month it may come close to 20.
If you play the game long enough, you WILL hit a really big winning streak, so don’t be standing there with your hands in your pockets when it happens. Be ready for it. Know what to DO.
Please note: You can experience a run of 10, 15, 20 or more wins the first time you ever sit down to play… it doesn’t mean it will happen.
“LOCKING UP” AND “BACKING OFF”
Another way to apply the Profit Increaser approach is by “plateaus.” Under this arrangement the player must be out in front and operating on “their” money. THEN the starting bet is raised to the second level (higher than what had been played). If the run continues and another 10 units is make (or around there), the bet is moved up to another level of three or four units. If you continue to win bet steps up to higher levels (plateaus).
The trick with this approach is knowing when to back off. It MUST be handled with careful thought and definite rule, all the while remembering to “BEWARE OF GREED.”
As the bet is raised to a new and higher level during a good run, a given amount of units should be pocketed into what can be called a “lock-up.” If profits fall back to this “lock-up” point the Profit Increaser action is stopped and the player goes all the way back to the base or drops out of the game. Again comes the all-important question of when to quit.
ONE OF THE BIGGEST SECRETS TO SUCCESSFUL GAMBLING
We know that the game will always swing back and forth. It would be great if we could only play the upswings, but that is impossible. The only possible way to get the upswings is to survive the own swings.
You CAN avoid some of the down-swings if you play good “swinger’s game.” This is one of the biggest secrets to successful gambling. With proper capitalization, patience and by following the rules, you can hang on as the game swings back and forth. Eventually, you will be “out in front” and in a good upswing.
Now, after you have made a decent profit, you are READY TO QUIT when you get the following sign. The simple rule is: QUIT on a DOWNTURN of an UPSWING. This mean NEVER stop while you are winning because it could keep going, but wait until a loser or two comes across then QUIT and walk away before a major downswing occurs.
The more disciplined you are the better gambler you will be. It takes practice, it takes guts and it takes character to resist temptation and greed. If you can learn to quit on the downturn of an upswing, you have the makings of a true pro.
There will be times when you may be involved in a long fight but can’t quite get even no matter what you do. QUIT THEN and take a break. Most US casinos are open 365 days a year and you can come back anytime you want. NEVER lose your respect for a formidable opponent. Treat him like a true champion.
Don’t ever get cocky and don’t get overconfident. Only a fool lets his guard down. Stay disciplined and stay alert.
You have now the knowledge to play a good game. The rest is up to you.
