Learn about the famous 1-3-2-6 betting strategy

Another one of the most popular betting systems is the 1-3-2-6 strategy, which is used greatly at casinos. You can practice this bet management style online and use it in roulette along with just about any other casino game. This system uses properties of positive progression but it also has a cycle to prevent people from betting all of their profits on longer and longer winning streaks, which causes them to lose all of their profits.

The 1-3-2-6 system works by having the player bet 1 chip or unit on the first roulette spin. If the player wins, they will bet 3 chips, then 2 chips and finally a grand 6 chips. That is if they keep winning consecutively. If they win after a 6 chip bet, the cycle starts over again starting with a 1 chip bet. As you can see, a player only needs to have a streak of 4 wins in order to gain the maximum profit.

This strategy seems to be the best “middle ground” strategy to use in roulette. It is sort of a mix between many other systems because you are increasing your bet 300% of your first bet, or 150% of your profits. Then after you win that, you actually decrease your bet by 50%, thus saving a  lot of profits from being lost. Then your final bet gets increased by 300% again for a big win.

Basically the benefits of winning through the entire cycle is a 12 chip profit. For example, if you were wagering $10 at the start, you would have $120 profit if you won only 4 spins in a row, which can happen frequently. If you were to lose on the last big bet of 6 chips, you would have a net loss of $20 rather than $60 because of all the other profits you built up. Once you did win $120, you would then start over again with a $10 and try to complete the cycle again for an additional $120 profit. So if you were a high roller making a wager of $500, you could easily win $6000 a pop after each 4 win cycle. This is how the profits get big money really quickly and it’s amazing how one could make a 1200% return on investment in such a short 4 win cycle.

Again, the key here is to make wagers on outside bets or the ones with nearly 50/50 odds or 1:1 payouts. The system depends on winning streaks, but fortunately the streaks do not have to be very long. This system greatly benefits players in the short term and it really just depends on your luck and how the game is moving along during a particular night. 1-3-2-6 is also an easy set of numbers to recall, so you can always remember this strategy if you are playing online or at the casino.
