Blackjack is a well-known game played in casinos. It is very popular among customers all around the world, including India. The introduction of Blackjack to the online community has been a complete success. Blackjack is now available in many excellent varieties with customized rules, odds, and modifications.
Although this betting system is widely used in casinos for games like roulette, it also blends well for blackjack strategies. The concept of this idea is very simple- every time you lose, you will double the bet until you win and earn a profit. For instance, if you start with Rs. 50, the next bet is doubled if you lose, in the order of Rs. 100, Rs. 200, Rs. 400, and so on. Once you win a round and earn the profit, the next wager is dropped back down to Rs. 50.
Types of Blackjack
2 Level Progressive Betting System
The idea revolving around this betting system is to select the lowest and the highest bet. After every win, the player will wager the highest bet in the next round. But after every loss, the payer will wager the lowest bet in the next round. So, if you set the lowest wager to Rs. 100 and the highest wager to Rs. 500 then once the game starts, with an Rs. 100 wager, the next wager will depend on whether you win or lose the present round. If you win the round, you will raise the next wager to Rs. 500, but if you lose the round, you will continue with Rs. 100 as your next wager.
5 Level Progressive Betting System
This is a 1, 2, 3, and back to 5 progression system, used widely by blackjack players. In this system, with every win, the wagers are promoted to the next level. However, if the player loses, the wagers are regressed to the first level. This can be explained by the following example. A player has set the minimum wager at Rs. 50. If he wins the next rounds, he will keep increasing the wager consecutively in the order of 100, 150, 200, and so on. However, in case if the player loses a round, he will restart from the first level and bet Rs.50 in the next round.
You can also drop back to the lowest wager after four consecutive wins. This is a commonly used trick in this betting system.
