Betting System in Focus: Fast Double Bet

The Fast Double Roulette betting system is a perfect example of a classical type of parlay bet. For the uninitiated, a parlay bet is basically a move a player makes by leaving his winnings from the previous spin on the table as his next bet for the upcoming spin. The goal of parlay is to win compounded amounts of bets for every turn. Aside from the parlay bet, the Fast Double also requires player to have an additional fund reserved on the table.

The Basics of the System

The main feature of the Fast Double betting method is that it is very flexible for use. Players can use it as the base system for a major roulette game. Meanwhile, it can also be utilized by roulette players for small or even modest game where they aim for 15-20 units of profit.

How the System Works

When doing the Fast Double, the player has to bet on the three even chances simultaneously while using three separate banks. One even chance = one bank. This further means to say that the system is only applied on even money bets whereby the payout is 1:1.

To better understand the system, let us consider this example:

  • In the first spin, the player bets one unit. If the bet registers a win, one unit is gained.
  • For the second spin, the player bets the two units that he won from the first round, PLUS one more unit for a sum of three betting units. If he wins, six units will be gained.
  • For the third spin, the player bets all the six units previously won plus one more unit for the sum of 7 units. If he wins, 14 units will be gained.

After the third spin, the player will restart the cycle and go back betting on one unit. Obviously, the player only needs to win 3 consecutive bets to make a profit of 14 units to make the Fast Double successful. If you also take a closer look at it, the player has only bet a total of 3 units of his own money.

Again, this method can be played on the three even chance bets like Red/Black, High/Low, and Odd/Even.

Suffice to say, the system is an example of a positive progressive roulette betting system. This means, at any stage of the cycle the player loses, he must go back to the first step betting one unit bet.

Lengthy Losing Streaks

However, when things really go out of hand and it seems like luck is hard to find, the player must make drastic adjustments on the system.

If he’s been losing more than 20 units already, this will be the betting unit pattern to use:

First spin = 2 unit bet

Second spin = 6 unit bet

Third spin = 14 unit bet

Basically, the units are being doubled. In similar case, if the losing streak continues to run to more than 20 rounds, then the player would only have to double all the bets again. Therefore, the first step will start at 4 unit bet.

Once the player recovers his initial bankroll, he can now return having low initial stakes of 1 unit for the first spin.

Do Betting Systems Really Work?

In most cases, casino players who use a variety of betting systems in their games usually believe that using one will help them to win and generate profits. Although it is entirely probable for a player to beat the house while using a betting system, still, one cannot attribute the entire success of the game to the system.

This way of thinking is but all understandable. For as long as humans have been around in this world, there are always problems to bog us down. And for every problem, we always try our best to find a solution. This is could also be the case with gambling. The casino’s advantage is a challenge each gambler has to face each time he enters a brick and mortar casino or an online casino. Betting systems, on the other hand, is there to even out the disparity between the establishment and the player’s advantage. Suffice to say, betting systems have been around for as long as the gambling industry has flourished in many parts of the world.

What is a Betting System?

As suggested by the term used, betting systems are methods that make use of a player’s bankroll to strategically or systematically produce profit. Using betting systems basically calls on the player to either increase or decrease his bet sizes each time he wins or every time he loses.

This betting trend solely depends on what type of betting system being employed. There are two major categories in this case: the negative or the positive betting system.

Negative Progressive Betting System – is when the player increases the size of his bet each time he loses and decreases it when he hits a win

Positive Progressive Betting System – works in such a way that the player only increase his bet when he is in a winning streak. Otherwise, he decreases his bet (or return to the base unit) if he loses.

Do They Actually Work?

A lot of casino players, whether online, offline, or in both, are under the impression that to have a system at your disposal is a surefire way to win money. This, however, can both be true and not.

These playing strategies do not actually work in the long term but it can help win money in short runs.

Depending on the duration of your plays, a system can either be your ally in success or an opponent of it.

The sooner you know this the better: if you think that using a betting system will somehow magically twist the odds in your favor, then you got it all wrong.

The reason for this is that roulette, just like most casino games, are played based on pure luck. These games incorporate little to no strategy. Let’s add to the fact that a roulette wheel does not have a memory which is why a previous outcome has no direct influence to what will come up next.

Furthermore, there’s also the looming presence of the casino edge: the single zero and the double zero. These factors hinder the player to have an exact 50/50 chance of winning when making an even money bet.

With all this, a player should keep in mind that the house always wins but a good betting system helps make your game more profitable and enjoyable.

 

 

Beating Roulette With the Circumstance Betting System

The Circumstance Roulette Betting System is primarily used on even chance bet, particularly on Red or Black. The said two colors basically form the constant pattern on the roulette wheel. Such pattern will only be interrupted when a single zero and double zeros come up.

The Circumstance System

This roulette betting strategy is named as such because the player has to wait for a specific “circumstance” to occur before he makes a move.

This “circumstance” that the player has to look for is for either the Red or Black to hit at least three times in a row and then change. When the conditions are met, the player will then start betting on the colour that came up in three consecutive times.

The Strategy in Action

To better understand the system, consider this scenario:

At a game, three reds (12, 32, 7) are hitting in a row and followed by a black (22). The player bets on Red.

To make things safer, the player can wait for the color to come up five times and then for it to change.

Players who will use the Circumstance System should never change the color they are betting once they start.

Betting Levels in the System

There are three levels of betting to remember when using the system:

1st Level

We recommend starting in this level with a bankroll worth £225. Buy 5 £25 chips and 20 £5 chips. The player’s target is to make a profit of at least £75 from this session.

The first bet to make is £25 on a selected color. If the bet registers a win, then the player’s second bet is £20. If the player lose the round, his next bet would be £30.

Rule of thumb: The player reduces his bet by £5 each time he registers a win. Meanwhile, he increases his bet by £5 each time he loses a round.

The logic behind this is that the payout drawn from a winning bet will be more than what will be lost in a losing bet. The system becomes successful in this level if the player has an equal number of winning bets and losing bets.

2nd Level

The second level of betting when using the Circumstance System would require a hefty bankroll worth £450.

The player buys 10 £25 chips or 5 £50 chips. He will also buy in 40 £5 chips or 20 £10 chips.

The player’s target profit for this session is at least £150.

The first bet he makes will be worth £50 on a selected color. If the bet wins, the next bet to make is worth £40. If he loses, then the next bet is £60.

Rule of thumb: The player reduces his bet by £10 if he wins. He, meanwhile, increase his bet by £10 each time he loses.

3rd Level

For high stake rollers, this is the level to take. In this level, the player should have a starting bank of £900. He will buy 5 £100 chips and 40 £10 chips.

His target profit for this session is at least £300.

The first bet he makes is £100 on a selected color. If he wins, the next bet is £80. If he loses, the next bet to make is £120.

Rule of Thumb: Player reduces bet by £20 each time he registers a win. Meanwhile, he increases the bet by £20 each time he loses.

 

 

Winning Tips When Playing Roulette Online or Offline

A lot of people are often intimidated when it comes to playing roulette. At first, they would immediately think of a glamorous casino setting where only those with the thick wads of cash can play. Furthermore, they assume that a game such as roulette can be a very difficult game to play.

Contrary to this belief, roulette is actually easy to understand and to play as well. Unlike the other popular casino games like blackjack or poker, learning how to bet in roulette is quite simple, too. As with the gameplay, players only have to choose what number the ball will land in the next spin.

However, there’s more to roulette than what meets the eye. Still, a good player must know the ins and outs of any endeavour he wishes to take. Just like roulette, he needs to pick up some winning tips and tricks along the way if he wants to succeed in every roulette game he plays.

Tip #1

Play free roulette when able. Get the groove of the game first before you plunge into a session which would involve real money.

Tip #2

Opt for outside bets. This means playing on even bets like Red/Black, Odd/Eve, and High/Low. The returns may be marginal but the chances of winning are a bit higher as compared to inside bets.

Tip #3

Have second thoughts with Gambler’s Fallacy. When a series of 10 black numbers came up consecutively, there’s a tendency for players to shift to red, believing that it’s a high time for such color to appear. We personally think that this doesn’t make sense at all. As we argued in a previous post, the roulette has no memory. Each spin is a unique event and it has no direct relation to the previous result or the ones that follows after.

Tip #4

Make bank. Always. A perfect example would be this: you start with the amount of £50. After a number of rounds, your bankroll increased to £100. This means you made a profit of £50. Withdraw your profit into your bank account. Use the remaining payroll, if you want it to. This way you can’t lose the game. If ever the initial amount got eaten up, your reserved £50 will just make things even between you and the casino. Here’s a more detailed advice when it comes to roulette bankroll.

Tip #5

Use roulette betting systems, when it’s needed. We mentioned it already and we’ll say it again, a betting strategy does not guarantee a 100% win all the time. However, it helps you make better decisions when making bets.

Tip #6

Always keep this mind: the house always win. It is imperative for any roulette player, of any playing level, to know this truth. Why is this so? It’s because of the presence of the casino edge.

Tip #7

Speaking of casino edge, it is then vital for a roulette player to know which variant of the game he should be playing. As always the recommendation, refrain from playing American roulette because of the extra zero. This increases the house’s advantage over the player. Instead, opt for the single zero European roulette.

 

 

Quick Online Roulette Tips

Getting frustrated with all the losing streaks you’re suffering in each of your late night online roulette sessions? Is your online casino account’s wallet already draining?

Well, to put it simply first, roulette is not like any other casino game that you can “master” with. In blackjack, for instance, the payouts are very low because in this game, you can literally take control of the outcome. If you got the skill to count cards, then the table is for you.

It’s a different story with roulette. Whether you’re talking about online or offline roulette, this game is as precarious as it can be. Meaning, there’s no way you can alter the result of each round. Each number you can find in the wheel and in the corresponding betting table, has equal opportunities of coming up per spin.

What does this tell us? That in roulette, anything can happen. There’s no way you can assure that a specific number will show up in a particular round.

Surprisingly, the only thing you can take control in this game is your bet. That’s it! The moment the croupier set loose of the ball, all you can do now is cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Should you then not play roulette anymore? On the contrary, roulette is probably one of the most exciting casino game you can get your hands on.

Why should I play if I keep on losing? You won’t be anymore if you take a look and follow this guide we made for you.

In this post, we’ll share some of the most common roulette winning tips you can easily apply when playing the game online or in a land-based casino. Take note: these roulette strategies (in themselves) do not guarantee 100% wins all the time.

  • Know when to quit. Never allow yourself to be caught up in the “feeling lucky” vibe. You’d lose all your winnings in this way and it’s the casino who will be smiling at the end.
  • Know your limits. By that, we mean bankroll limit. Each roulette table has its own minimum and maximum bet limit that players should be aware of. Choose one that better suits the size of your bankroll.
  • Know when to cash in. Chips in roulette can’t be used in any other areas of the casino. They are solely made for this game. This is why you need not to forget to cash in your chips before you leave the table.
  • Past is past. There’s no way that a previous spin result will have an influence on an upcoming one. Casinos spend millions just to make sure that the roulette tables are not biased.
  • Play European. The great thing about online casinos is that there are a lot of roulette game varieties you can choose from. In this case, we recommend opting for the single zeroed version of the game, which is the European roulette. The house edge here is 2.70% as compared to the American double zero roulette which has 5.26% casino advantage.
  • Consider Using Strategies…but never bank on them fully. Strategies are there to help you make a much more calculated approach in the game (rather than just randomly betting anywhere on the table). However, a method is yet to be made to fully cut the house advantage. The casino always wins.

Betting System in Focus: The Hollandish

The Hollandish is a roulette betting system that we initially thought to be quite difficult to understand at first glance. Although, through learning and constant practice, this method can be mastered even by the so-called novice roulette players. In this post, we are going to lay out the details to help you understand better this popular roulette system.

Basics of the Method

When using Hollandish, a player has to make three spins which are commonly called “Hollandish Block.” The term refers to the outcome of the three spins which will then determine at what amount the player will opt in for the next round.

Throughout the three spin block, the betting amount remains the same. It will only increase or decrease on the next block. Again, this depends solely on the outcome of the previous Hollandish block.

Hollandish Progression

When using Hollandish, the player also has to take note of the betting progression that has to be applied throughout the duration of the game.

Let’s assume that initial bet is £1. Then the sequence will be: £1, £3. £5, £7, £9…and so forth. In this pattern, one can see that we increase the bet by two.

If we begin with £2, then the progression will be: £2, £6, £10, £14, £18…and so forth. Meanwhile, this pattern calls in the player to increase bets by four.

Please remember that this is just how the betting amount progresses when using Hollandish. We will explain further how to use the system in the following section of the article.

Setting the System in Motion

When using the Hollandish, the player needs to start the game by making even chance bets. These types of bets belong to the Outside Bet. Examples of Even Chance Bets are Red/Black, Odd/Even, and Low/High. They basically give the player almost 50% chance of winning each time. It does however, only has a 1:1 payout.

After which, the first part of the betting sequence begins. Let’s say that you opt for red. You would be betting £1 on red, not only once, but thrice. This is to make up for the above-mentioned Hollandish block.

If the player happens to win at least two of the bets made, then this is proves the method to be successful – a win. Since the cycle has already been completed, the player returns to betting to the initial unit of £1 for another three spins.

In another scenario, if the player only wins once or none out of the block (the three spins), then it is a “loss” in the Hollandish system. This means that the player moves up to the next stage of the progression. This time, he will make bets with £3 per spin for three rounds.

As soon as the player bets £3 for three times, if he registers a profit out of his initial bankroll, then he should return to the first stage of the sequence which is betting £1 per spin for three rounds.

Let’s take a look at these scenarios:

If you bet £1 and lose, bankroll is -£1

If you bet £1 and lose, bankroll is -£2

If you bet £1 and win, bankroll is £-1

(moving up to the next step of the progression)

If you bet (1 + 2) 3 and lose, bankroll is -4

If you bet 3 and win, bankroll is -1

If you bet 3 and lose, bankroll is -4

(moving up to the next step of the progression)

If you bet (3 + 2) 5 and lose, bankroll is -9

If you bet 5 and win, bankroll is -4

If you bet 5 and win, bankroll is +1

At this point of the game, the player has already registered a profit, a plus. This is the signal that tells him to go back to the beginning, which is betting £1 per spin for three rounds.

 

 

 

Betting System in Focus: The Whittaker

The Whittaker Betting System is often being compared to the Labouchere system in ways wherein it is often used on even chance bets. In addition to this, the Whittaker also closely resembles the Fibonacci because the user have to wait for certain rounds to decide how much to bet for the next spin.

We discussed in details the Fibonacci Betting System in this post. Having used the Whittaker, we can deduce that indeed, the betting system we have in focus right now closely resembles to that of the mathematically-based roulette betting strategy.

Basically, the Whittaker Betting System is designed to use for even chance bets. These are the 50-50 shots like the Red/Black, Odd/Even, and Low/High.

The Whittaker Betting System

Without any further ado, let’s begin learning the basics of the Whittaker. Again, this betting strategy is unlike the positive progression methods we previously posted. The said betting progression works in such a way that a player would only increase his bet when winning, but decrease it when losing. Whittaker, on the other hand is an example of negative progression method as it calls for the player to increase bet when losing and return to the base amount when winning.

In a nutshell, using the Whittaker will have the player make a bet which is the sum of his two previous losing bets.

To have a better grasp of the method, let’s consider this step by step process:

  1. Player bets £10. He lost the round.
  2. Player bets £10 again. He lost the round again.
  3. Taking note of the Whittaker’s rule, the player will add the two losing bets which, based on our example, totals to £20.
  4. If the player lose this round, his next bet will be £30.
  5. Now, if luck is really hard to come by and he still lost the round, the sum of the two previous bets (£20 + £30) which is £50 will be the worth of his next wager.
  6. If this wins, then the player will reset the cycle and return to the base betting unit which is £10.

It is important to remember to go back to the beginning of the betting sequence after each win to make the Whittaker betting system effective. This should happen regardless if you win on the very first round of the game.

Bankroll Management

Interestingly enough, the Whittaker is more widely considered as a payroll management system rather than a betting system per se. This is because it doesn’t necessarily tells you what number or groups of it, to bet on. Rather, it’s how you “make” bets.

The very first thing to remember when using Whittaker is to establish the initial betting unit. It’s easy to do this. Players will only have to take their total bankroll and divide it by 100. The resulting amount would be the initial amount that you will use to start off the sequence.

Once you have already figured out on what amount to start, the succeeding bets should be easy to compute.

Sticking to One Bet

To make better use of the Whittaker, players are advised to stick to one bet throughout the entire game. If you think that you might want to change bets in the later rounds, then it’s best to avoid using this system.

 

 

 

Even Chance Roulette Strategy

Avid roulette players may have already known that when playing the game, they can make wagers on high/low numbers (1-18/19-36) or either of the two colours (Black/Red). Both of these types of bets give the player a chance to win at almost 50% each of the time with a 1:1 payout.

The Even Chance Roulette Strategy

This betting system is easy to pull off and can be done even by the most novice of all roulette players. Another great thing about this is that you don’t have to stress yourself choosing from the total of 37 or 38 numbers found in the roulette betting table.

Even chance bets basically cover huge quantities of numbers, so players will be able to benefit an increased odd of winning. This in turn provides opportunity to earn short term profits.

Rule of Thumb

The very important thing to remember when using the Even Chance Roulette Strategy is that the player should be able to break even with his wagers to that of his wins.

The trick is here is that whichever color or group of numbers you choose to bet on, you will increase by 20% the amount of your wager each time you lose. Meanwhile, you will decrease by 10% the amount of your bet after every win.

Sample Scenarios

To better illustrate the concept of this roulette betting system, consider this example. Suppose you are wagering on Black with 20 chips. You won the round, and so, you reduce the amount of chips for the upcoming betting round to 18 chips. If luck is on your side, the next round will have you betting with 16 chips, the next is 14, and so forth.

Realistically speaking, it’s often that players would encounter losses. So in this case, the player must increase the amount of his wagers by 20% per spin. For instance, he started off with a bet amounting to 10 chips. He registered a loss. The next wager he puts in the table would be 12 chips. If luck is still hard to come by, his succeeding bets would amount to 15, 18, 22, and so forth.

Statistics and Additional Info

Be wary that even when using Even Chance Roulette System, the odds of winning is not entirely 50-50 and this is because of the house advantage which comes into the form of the zero (and the double zero in American roulette).

Should you get into a situation when your gameplay has to suffer significant losses, we recommend sticking to the system’s rule which is increasing to 20% when losing. On the other hand, if the game is on your side, then you should decrease your bets by 10% per round.

If you’re not yet that confident of using the Even Chance Roulette System, we suggest practicing it when playing the game on an online casino. Looking for the best online casino? We help you weed out the options in this post.

There are web casinos out there that offer opportunities to play roulette with or without money from your part. By taking advantage of this offer, you can better equip yourself with the experience of using the system.

 

 

Roulette Game Basics: The Table and the Chips

Learning to play roulette, whether we’re referring to online or offline game, is as easy as A,B,C. In this post, we’ll shed out some basic details about roulette.

The game comes in two major variants – the European and American roulette. Both are similar in so many ways except for some features like the roulette wheel and its corresponding betting layout.

To get more acquainted with the various roulette betting options and its corresponding rules, let’s take a look at the two game variants:

Table Layout

The tables of both the American and the European roulette is typically covered in green felt layout. Printed boxes can also be found on its surface and their purpose is to indicate the type of bet a player makes.

The numbers found in the table is either black or red. The single zero and double zero (in American roulette) are, however, colored in green.

The table is further divided into two major parts according to the type of roulette bets. The part in which all the numbers, including the zero, can be found is the inside bets portion.

Outside of the numbered boxes are the additional bets called outside bets. These bets, meanwhile, cover up 12 and 18 numbers at one time.

Take a look at a European Roulette Table:

Here’s how an American Roulette Table looks like:

See the two, one can attest that there isn’t that big difference between them. Still, the American roulette table offers unique betting opportunities like the call bets or more commonly known as the announced bets. This bet still has other moniker which is “French bets,” this is because this type of wager was originally and predominantly played in France. It is rare to find such bets in casinos, whether land-based or online. Should you happen to stumble upon one, players are advised to learn the rules first as it can differ from establishments to establisments.

Roulette Chips

In roulette, the bets are predominantly made using special colored chips. These can’t be used in any other casino games. This is because there can be up to 8 players sitting at the same time. Dealers or croupiers could easily be confused which player made such a bet if they all use the regular ones. For this, a roulette player is assigned with a distinct colored chip that only he can use as long as he is in the game.

Using the chips is easy. The dealer only has to ask the players to denominate their chips in an orderly pile. After which, the dealer places a chip of a specific color and another of a particular denomination near the wheel. This is to control the payouts.

During a game, the player will then choose the chip value that he would like to wager in for a particular number or groups of it.

Roulette chips basically retains no value when used outside the game. This is unlike in any other casino games wherein you can use it as a form of currency to pay for something. In roulette, a player would need to exchange his chips before he leaves the table after a game.

 

 

Newbie’s Ultimate Guide to Online Casino Bonuses

What’s great about online casinos is that you’re not restricted when it comes to cash flow. It’s because you can easily move your money from one online casino to another without any hassle. Because of the fluidity and ease in transferring from one to the other, online casinos realized that they need to be competitive in order to get customers. Thus, online casino bonuses are born. And that’s what we’re going to talk about in this article.

  1. Sign-up or Welcome Bonuses

Sign up bonuses are growing in popularity nowadays because of the interesting thought that goes around it. These are also called as welcome bonuses by some as it attracts gamblers into creating an account on a specific online casino site.

So how does this bonus work? Take for example this scenario. Let’s say you deposit $100 on the casino. The casino will then give you another $100 for free, which you can use to bet later on. This means that you get $200 by simply depositing $100.

But as amusing as it sounds, there’s a catch to this. You need to make another deposit for you to bet or even withdraw the bonus. This is what you call as the wagering requirement. This requirement may come in two ways.

It might either be a bonus amount multiple or a multiple of the deposit and bonus’ total amount. This makes the betting requirement look lower than what it’s supposed to be.

  1. No deposit bonuses

No deposit bonuses are the most popular online casino bonus out there. This is also one of the reasons why the http://www.freebets.co.uk/free-bet-no-deposit/ page by Freebets.co.uk is growing in popularity among punters. This kind of bonus lets you play games without having to risk your own money.

What’s great about it is that you can easily start your online gambling endeavor even if you don’t have much money. This also lets you earn capital first so that you can enjoy your gambling session later on. Though the bonuses are much smaller, it’s still worth the try.

  1. Cashable Bonuses

Cashable bonuses are smaller in amount compared to other bonuses. However, they’re usually more valuable. This helps you increase your betting variant and size, which leads to higher winning chances. Once you reach the maximum betting target, you can then lower down your betting amount while simultaneously getting the bonus.

  1. Non-Cashable Bonuses

There are also these non-cashable bonuses. These are bonuses you can’t cash out because, in the first place, they’re not even real cash. Most people call these as phantom bonuses because of their intangible element. It’s a bonus that online casinos give you so that you can use it in your games. It’s just like a gaming privilege (e.g. an extra spin).

You also can’t withdraw this one. Instead, the bonus accumulates in your account, making it easier for you to continue playing in the online casino over and over again. Though these are referred to as bonuses, they’re really just a marketing gimmick to give the online casino an edge over its competitors.

Conclusion

To sum it all up, it’s very clear that the growing number of online casinos have a huge effect on its customers. Because of the stiffening competition, online casinos are now making sure that their clients get the best experience. And that’s the whole point of why bonuses exist — to get a steady pool of players.
