1-3-2-6 system

Understandably, many players tend to look for strategies to improve winnings. However, some conservative players would love to reduce their possibilities of losing. To achieve such an objective, the 1-3-2-6 system is ideal. This system helps reduce significant losses and improve the chances of winning small profits. The name of the system already suggests how the betting units will be done: 1-3-2-6. As such, you should only play on the even-odds such as even/odd, or red/black or 1-18/1936.

How to Play with the 1-3-2-6 system

To engage a game using this system, first off, you need to select a betting unit. Every turn should begin in succession using a multiple of betting units. In the case of a win, if you choose ten euros, you should bet as follows: 10-30-20-60. In a situation where you win the four turns, then you will start again. But if you lose during the series, you have to start from the beginning again.

Starting Well

An exciting aspect of the 1-3-2-6 system is that you stand to win more than lose if you win the first two turns. Also, if a series result in loss, it will be minimal. Check the five options below:

  1. A first spin loss results in a total loss of 1 betting unit.
  2. A second spin loss results in a total loss of 2 betting units.
  3. A third spin loss results in a profit from 2 betting units.
  4. A fourth spin loss only will help you break even.
  5. A fourth spin win results in a win of 12 betting units.

The 1-3-2-6 System Tightened

Despite the conservative nature of this system, it has a shortcoming too. The drawback lies in the last bet, i.e., turn 4. To get a profit of 6 betting units is quite simple with low risks. A third turn always results in 2 units profit if you lose the turn. However, for the fourth turn, many more conservative players believe that it is a shame to place everything in a turn. This set of people prefers to keep more behind the clock and wager four units rather than six units. For instance, a small adjustment to the 1-3-2-6 system results in games being played in a 1-3-2-4 system. This new system is mostly used during the Baccarat and Punto Banco games.

This system is a positive and progressive betting system that is quite easy. Also, it focuses on maximizing the winnings using a series of winning bets. It is considered as a variant of the Paroli system; hence, it is most useful when betting with single odds, such as red/black in roulette. However, keep in mind that this system doesn’t cover every loss. In fact, it is possible to lose an entire winning with one bet. Also, it offers no cover against a set of losses. 

Winning the first two bets will help get the best out of the system. You even stand to gain an exciting profit quickly if you win all the four bets in a row.
