How To Use The Martingale System

The Martingale system is extremely simple to use. With only a little practice you’ll have it memorized and working to your advantage. Here’s how it works:

  • Decide how much 1 unit will be; this could be anything you want, but make sure you keep it affordable as you’ll be increasing your wager from this point on.
  • When you lose, double your previous wager.
  • When you win, return to betting 1 unit at a time.
  • You’ll want to be making outside bets, specifically even ones. This includes red/black, odd/even and high/low. These bets will give you best chances of winning, so you don’t have to worry about minimising your losses as you’re nearly guaranteed to get them back quickly.

    Here’s an example of the Martingale system in action:

    • Place 1 unit and lose (-1).
    • Place 2 units and lose (-3).
    • Place 4 units and lose (-7).
    • Place 8 units and win (+1).

    After a win, you’ll always end up with 1 unit extra, so if your starting wager was £10 then you’ll end up with £10 profit. This is a neat and manageable system for novice players that should guarantee a steady stream of cash.


    • Easy for beginners.
    • Doesn’t require a complex betting system; just double your bets after a loss.
    • Winning streaks and losing streaks are as profitable as each other.


    • A long losing streak can spin up your bankroll.
    • You’ll only ever make as much as your initial wager each time due to even bets.
