Using betting systems and different strategies at the casino

I went to the casino last night to try out some of the different roulette systems that I’ve been talking about over the past few days. The first thing I did was practice some of them online using the free flash roulette game. It didn’t take long to get a good grasp of how each one worked. After I tried them out, I confidently headed out the the casino in an attempt to play roulette.

I tried out the Paroli system first, which is the one where you double your bets after every win. It is the one where you also risk all of your profits. I really liked this one, but it really is unsafe and dissatisfying after you lose. I actually won 5 times in a row starting with a $5 bet for a profit of $155. Then I got greedy by trying to win 6 times in a row with a single $160 bet on red. As usual when a streak gets really big, I lost on the 6th wager and ended up with a net loss of $5…

The Paroli is great for getting a rush because roulette gets really exciting after the big money starts getting in and the streaks get longer. The key is trying to figure out when to quit. After losing, this big bet, I just decided to play some slots for awhile to cool off for awhile and get my mind in tune again after the big rush.

Next, I tried out the Parlay system. This one is exactly like the Paroli, except I decided to just wager 50% of my profits after consecutive wins. There wasn’t very many winning or losing streaks, maybe 2 or 3 in a row but that was it. When the results start getting spotty, these “streak dependent” systems don’t work too well. The good thing was the fact that I was keeping some of the profits after each win rather than risking them all. The bad part was that I wasn’t winning as much and the losses kind of offset the profits, so I didn’t lose as much. As expected, this system wasn’t very exciting but it wasn’t nearly as risky either.

Finally, I started using the 1-3-2-6 system. This one was really working well because the streaks were not very long, but they weren’t spotty either. The streak of 4 wins is quite common in games like roulette, especially last night. I made an original wager of $5 on black and then completed an entire cycle of 4 wins in a row for a profit of $60. It only took about 4 minutes to do! After the cycle was over, I started betting on red since I knew that was coming up soon. As soon as I did this, the ball landed on red 4 times in a row and I won an additional $60 profit! So I switched off to black again. Amazingly, the ball landed on red 2 more times (and I lost two times as well).

For awhile, the ball on the roulette wheel started landing on red or black in streaks of 1, 2 or 3 for awhile. It was kind of neutral where I was winning as much as I was losing and sort of breaking even. Every once in awhile the ball would land on green (single zero on European wheel) and everyone would lose (which is why zero tends to be known as the house number). I actually won about 5 of these 1-3-2-6 cycles, including a cycle where I used $10 instead of $5 units, giving me a $120 profit. All in all, I won $600 in profit at the casino and I believe the 1-3-2-6 is the best and funnest system to use that night!
