Martingale Casino Betting System

The Martingale system has a long history, and was thought to have been devised as a plan to lure players into John Henry Martindale's casino. There are a number of various types of casino betting systems, such as the classic and the modern form of the Martingale betting system, but here we are simply describing the classic version as this is most commonly used. The system is used on the roulette table, and is based on betting on colours in order to provide a 50/50 chance of winning. With a number of win strategies, this negative progression betting system is the most popular system for the roulette table in the world.

Like other casino betting systems that focus on negative progression such as Oscar's Grind, D'Alembert, and Fibonacci, this system relies on capitalising on losses in order to make an equal profit when there is a win. It relies on the idea that a losing streak must come to an end, but this makes the system a risky one as you could quickly lose your bankroll. 

Whether you want to play on the roulette tables here at Ladbrokes Casino, or you're simply looking for something a little different to relieve yourself from the repetitiveness of normal betting, then the Martingale system is one of the many options that you have. While it should be used only for the short term due to the risks of long term play, it is an easy way to provide something a little unique to your gameplay.
