The 1-3-2-6 Strategy

The 1-3-2-6 Strategy is relatively straight-forward – especially if you have any experience using other betting or card-counting strategies.

Here’s how this works:

• STEP 1 Start with even-money bet. For example, place a bet on Banker. For the following steps, we’re going to say we made a \$10 bet.

• STEP 2 If your first bet wins, you’ll now have \$20. The next step is to make another unit-sized bet – in this example, \$10– to the money that’s already on the table. So, we’ll have \$30 total on the table.

This is where the “3” comes from in the system – it’s 3x whatever your bet is.

• STEP 3 Say this bet wins, too – you’ll now have \$60. The next step is a 2, which means we want to leave 2 units on the table, or in this case \$20. So, remove \$40 from your bet (leaving \$20).

• STEP 4  We’re going to say this bet also wins. You’ll now have \$40 on the table. But for the last step we want 6 units on the table. So, we need to add another \$20 to make our total \$60 (\$10 x 6 units).

If you win this bet, you’ll have \$120 on the table. You’ll want to remove this amount, and then on your next round you’ll start the cycle all over with the first step.

That’s all there is to it.
