Progressive Betting at Blackjack: Does it Work?

  1. You do realize the mg could work in a fair blackjack game. The losing streak would have to end at 33rd hand 66th hand or 99th hand in an honest fair game id doubt it would pass 40 connecting hands in arow but thats beside the point table limits and bankrolling

    Damn it Colin do you just recycle what the xperts say or do you have free thinking?

  2. If you are on low limit table with table max at $500; then you are screwed with martingale. Cause you are capped out there

  3. Some new Electronic Baccarat games in Las Vegas have $5 to $50,000 limits (Yes, you can bet $50,000 in an electronic game). Which means you can bet 13 times and then you are stuck. I have an acquaintance who plays that game who tells me he has seen that game go 22 straight player or banker wins on 2 occasions. To over come the games KNOWN maximum streak, you need to bet a total over $175,000,000 to win $5.

  4. Loved that point you made about risking $20,000 to make $5.

    ETA: If the casinos knew what you were doing would they back you off? This also applies to the "flow of the cards" crew too.

  5. Colin, baccarat has an even better chance of martingale system to work as opposed to blackjack and even that has potential for serious disaster

  6. Who in their right mind would ever consider martingale? Anyone who thinks Martingale is profitable probably also thinks it would be better to play a 6:5 double deck game over a 3:2 six deck game. Go back to the slot machines if you think that.
