The conventional Martingale Roulette System is what’s known as a negative progression system because you increase your bets after a loss. The opposite to that is increasing your bets after a win which is a positive progression and that’s what the Reverse Martingale attempts to do.
To start with, let’s clear up that the traditional Martingale system can be used all over the roulette table as long as you know the progression to use. It isn’t practical to use the Reverse Martingale all over the table though because you’re betting on repeaters, the same part of the table hitting several times in a row and riding a winning streak for profit.
There’s little chance that you’re going to get several Splits, Corners, Lines and so on in a row so it would be a waste to use the reverse Martingale on them, just stick to the even chance bets (Red/Black, Odd/Even and 1-18/19-36). So this is the progression that you would use:
1 – 2 – 4 – 8 – 16 – 32 – 64 – 128 – 256 – 512 – 1024 – 2048 – 4096 – 8192
How to use this system would be best described with an example. Start by picking a colour and then betting on it with 1. If it wins, bet 2 on the same colour. If this wins, bet 4 on the same colour.
The aim is to keep increasing your bets, ride the winning streak and then walk away with a large win. The first thing you need to do is decide at which point you’re going to walk away and take the win. This is entirely up to you, 6,7,8 colours in a row, it depends on you, your playing style and what kind of mood you’re in.
It is very important that you stick to your walk away point thought. It’s all too easy to get greedy and think to yourself “Just one more bet,” and this will pay off from time to time, but it will cost you more than it will pay off over the long term.
Important Things To Remember And Do
One thing that I would recommend when using this system online is to wait until you have one of the colour you’re going to bet on before you start betting. What I mean by this is the following: if your colour is Red, wait until Red has just hit, and then bet that you will get the second Red, third Red and so on.
The reason I say this is because if there’s currently a streak of Black, you’re just going to keep losing. By waiting until you have one red before you start betting, at least you won’t get burned when there’s a streak of Black. This is just an opinion and an idea, you could test it either way and see which you prefer.
A second important thing to remember is that you will have a loss of 1 every single time you don’t get to your desired quitting point. This would be best explained with an example.
Sticking with Red again, let’s say that your quitting point is 7 Reds in a row and you’re waiting until there’s one Red before you start betting. After a Red hits, you start betting, you get 5 wins and then on the final bet you lose. This is what you would have won:
1 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 16 = 31 Your next bet was 32 though and it lost, therefore you lost 1 throughout the betting sequence. Due to the fact that you’re losing 1 every time you don’t get to your quitting point, you get lots of small losses and these can soon add up.
