How To Use The Parlay System

This system boils down to a simple equation (don’t worry, you don’t have to remember it).

U x (W+1)’, where U = Your original bet, and W = How many times you have consecutively won.

Still with me? No? Let’s break it down…

  • The first thing you need to do is choose how much you want your original bet to be. This can be any amount you want, however I recommend you keep it low as, with any luck, you’ll be betting a lot more than this.
  • After a loss, keep placing your original bet.
  • After a win, add your winnings to your original bet. This will initially double for your first bet, and on a winning streak you’ll be placing multiples of your first bet.

And that’s all there is to it! Here’s a quick example of the strategy in action:

  • Place £5 and lose (-5)
  • Place £5 and lose (-10)
  • Place £5 and lose (-15)
  • Place £5 and win (-10)
  • Place £10 and win (0)
  • Place £15 and win (+15)

Even though you’ve had an equal amount of losses and wins, you’ve still managed to end up with £15 than what you started with. This is a positive progression system, so you’ll be betting more when you’re on a winning streak.


  • A simple, reliable system that continues to spin up a profit.
  • Allows for control over bets, so there’s plenty of leeway for creative play.
  • Cons

  • Possible to get greedy: know when to quit!
  • You’re unlikely to make a fortune.
