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.
