# The Secrets of Martingale Systems

Pssst...! Wanna know a secret?

How about the secret of Martingale systems?

Most people do not care for most Martingale systems. They are simple systems, and ask you to double your bet every time you lose. This way, the theory goes, you will eventually recoup your loses when you win. If, for example, you are playing on the pass line with a \$10 bet and big red rears his ugly head, your next pass line bet would be for \$20. If you lose again, the next one would be for \$40, then \$80, then \$160, then \$320. If the table has a \$500 limit (done to discourage Martingales), you have to stop and take a \$320 loss.

Wanna know the secrets that craps pros use to win using Martingale systems?

Let's find out!

Craps pros win using this method by playing at a casino with no table limits or, try a modified Martingale system, two of which are described below.

The first is a Dont-Pass system. You bet one unit on the Dont-Pass and, instead of doubling when losing, increase your bet by one unit only. Then, when you win, start decreasing your bets by one unit until you are back at one unit again. For example, if you lose the first two Dont-Pass bets, your third bet on the come-out would be for three units. If you win, the next bet would be for two units. Then one unit. If you win again, stay at one unit until you lose again.

A more interesting system is to bet on the field, again starting with one unit and increasing your bets by one unit when you lose. The interesting part here is that you will eventually win on a 2 or 12 which pays at least double.

The advantage to using these modified Martingales is that you will be ahead, eventually, instead of breaking even. If, for example, your unit is \$10 and you lose your first four bets, you will be down \$100 (\$10 + \$20 + \$30 + \$40). Your fifth bet will be for \$50, and if you win, you are now down only \$50. If you win the next four bets, (\$10 + \$20 + \$30 +40) you ll be ahead by \$50! And if you are betting on the field and happen to hit a 2 or 12, you will be even more ahead!

If you are betting on the field, try waiting until a seven rolls and a point is established before you start betting. Then, make bets for the next four rolls only, or if the point is made. Then, wait for another seven and come-out, and start betting where you left off.

Try these systems out first online at a free site. (http://www.TheCrapShooter.com has a FREE craps game.) See how well they work! Then go to a casino with low table limits and try betting \$1 units. When you win \$20, increase your unit to \$5. When you win \$50, increase your bet to \$10 and really make some money!

Pssst...! Now you know the secrets of Martingale systems!
