I'm back with my regularly irregular series on the queen of all gambling. If you haven't read the previous episodes, you can remedy that at the following links. Martingale: #147708 Bonds Bet: #148729
For today I have prepared a simple but effective system called Superior. Similar to Martingale, it is played on colour (or other paired bets like even-odd, high-low) but is not nearly as capital intensive.


The procedure is simple. You bet on a colour until you are one chip in the plus. However, in the event of a loss, you don't multiply your bets as you do with Martingale, but only increase them by one chip each round until you are in profit. To illustrate this:
If you win on the first draw, you are 1 chip in the black, the series ends and you bet 1 chip again the next time.
Bet is 1 chip, lose, you are -1 chip
Bet is 2 chips, lose, you're -3 chips
Bet is 3 chips, lose, you're -6 chips
Bet is 4 chips, lose, you're -10 chips
Bet is 5 chips, lose, you're -15 chips
Bet is 6 chips, win, you're -9 chips
Bet is 7 chips, win, you're -2 chips
You bet 3 chips, win, you're 1 chip in the hole, the series ends and you start betting 1 chip again
Now you may be asking why the last bet was only 3 chips and not 8. It's to limit the risk. The goal of the series is to finish 1 chip in the black and there is no need to take unnecessary risks. If this bet fails, you'll be -5 chips, so you raise the bet again by 1 chip to 4 and continue with the previous scheme.


As you can see, even in the case of a longer bad streak, the increase in bets is not as drastic as in Martingale, because the bet only increases by 1 chip each round, and just as more losses come in a row during the game, so logically do more wins come in a row, which will help you to even up your balance and get into profit again. Again though, you should have set limits for winning and losing, because as we said earlier, no system will guarantee you all wins and you need to manage risk at all times. Remember what Albert Einstein said, "No one can possibly win at roulette unless he steals money from the table while the croupier isn't looking".
