# 1-3-2-6 Betting System

0 Comment

This 1326 Betting System is given away by its name. It is based on the betting pattern 1 unit, then 3 units, then 2 units and then yes, you’ve guessed it, 6 units!

It is similar to the Paroli system and assumes that a player can win four times in a row. It is suitable for games where the odds of winning are about evens. Roulette, blackjack and baccarat are all suitable therefore for this betting system. It is a positive betting system which means that you increase your bet after a win, and decrease it after a loss. This is opposite to a negative betting system where you decrease the bet after a win and increase it after a win.

As we have seen therefore, the first bet made is 1 unit, the second is then 3 units, the next is 2 units and finally the fourth is 6 units. Let’s say therefore that a unit is \$5. The way this would play out would be the first bet made by the player is \$5. The next bet would be three units of \$5 which would be \$15. The third bet would be 2 units which would be \$10 and the final bet would be 6 units which would make the final bet \$30. If all of these bets win then the net profit made would remain on the table which would be \$60. At this stage you would go back to the initial bet and begin the process again.

The idea behind this 1326 betting system is that whilst only risking a small amount, you potentially stand to win a much larger amount. By adopting this strategy, the player can only ever lose a maximum of two betting units. A loss at the first bet will produce a loss of just 1 unit. A loss at the second level would be 3 units minus 1 unit profit from the first win, so a 2 unit total loss. A loss at the third level would be 2 units less the 4 units won from the two previous wins, which would in fact produce a 2 unit profit! A loss at the forth level is 6 units minus the 6 units previously won, or a 0 loss.

To summarize, it produces a chance of winning 12 units whilst only risking a maximum of 2. All you would need are a few good winning streaks to leave a big winner. Whilst many novice players do enjoy this betting system, it must be remembered that it relies on winning four times in a row. There is no guarantee that this will happen, especially with a game such as roulette of baccarat.

Casino games like baccarat and roulette that offer a 50/50 chance of winning are down to pure luck. The roulette wheel has no memory and the outcome of a round is not effected or influenced in any way by what has gone previously. In this instance the bet sizes are altered at each hand, but as the odds of winning are not altered in any way it is really just a series of four bets. If the ball falls in your favour, you win, if it doesn’t then of course you lose. Implementing a betting strategy will by no means alter your chances.

While of course players who have adopted this strategy will win, especially in the short term, it should be noted that this would not be down to the betting system itself. This 1326 betting system in particular relies heavily on winning four hands in a row which is a totally random event over which the player has no control. To really maximize wins based on a 4 hand winning streak, the player should bet all the profits of each hand as in the Parlay system.
