Can Smart Geeks Win More with Online Gambling

Over the years there have been a huge number of different gambling systems created. It’s safe to say that most of these have been created by extremely smart people. Usually people who have used calculations and statistics to put together the most likely outcomes for different games. This involves using all of the information that’s available to you to create the best way to win. It takes a lot of time and effort, but can be extremely lucrative if you carry it out correctly.

We’ve taken a look at some of the most popular systems that are already in existence as well as looking at what you can do in order to create your own system. 

Bankroll Management

There are a lot of different bankroll management strategies out there. Some are more successful than others and also don’t require huge bankrolls to carry them out. Some can potentially require large bankrolls, but can offer guaranteed profit if you are able to go to a high enough level. 

Martingale Strategy

The Martingale strategy is without a doubt the most famous bankroll management strategy there is. For this strategy you need to be playing a game that has even money bets available. Something like Roulette or Baccarat will allow you to carry out this strategy as both games have even money bets available. What you do need to look out for is high table limits, as the amount you stake with this strategy can soon increase to very high levels. 

The way the strategy works is by placing your bet on an even money wager. If your wager loses, then you will double the value of your stake and put it on an even money wager again. This means that if your bet wins it covers the loss you made on the previous bet, you then return to your original stake. If your bet loses again then you double your stake again and place it on another even money bet. 

This is an extremely simple strategy to carry out, but if you lose four or five rounds in a row then it can increase your stake to quite high levels. So you will need a combination of a large bankroll and a high table limit in order to carry this strategy out effectively. 

1-3-2-6 Strategy


This strategy is different to the Martingale strategy in that you change your stake when you win rather than when you lose. The way the system works is that you place your bet of a single unit on an even money bet. If you win then you increase it to 3 units. If you win again then you decrease it to 2 units. If you win a final time then you increase it to 6 units. If you win again then you return to the start of the sequence. If you lose at any point in the sequence you return to the start of the sequence. 

This system is designed to take advantage of winning streaks and attempt to keep losses on losing streaks to a minimum. Because you’re only betting your winnings the sequence doesn’t cause you heavy losses if you follow it through to the final stage and lose. Some players miss out the final step of the sequence, and return to the start at that point. It’s up to you if you choose to do this, but if you do win on that fourth bet then you would definitely regret not placing the 6 unit stake. 

It’s a relatively easy system to follow, but if you have a bad run of luck then your losses can pile up quite quickly. On the flip side, if you have a good run of luck then you can walk away with some big wins. 

Creating Your Own System

When it comes to creating your own gambling system, it’s actually best to avoid looking at bankroll management systems. This is because most of them have already been created and you would just be reinventing the wheel if you attempted to create your own. What you’re actually best to do is crunch the numbers and look to use statistics and other mathematical methods to choose bets that give you the best value. 

An example of this could be soccer. Looking at the times when teams score goals can help you to know when is the right time to place a bet. So, if a team in the Premier League regularly scores goals late in the game, then it might be worth placing a bet on there to be an over/under bet for that particular half.

If the game is 0-0 going into the final 20 minutes then you would place your bet using in play betting. Your bet would be that there would be over 0.5 goals scored in the game. Because there are just 20 minutes of the game left the odds will have increased significantly from before kick off. You will therefore get a much better return on the bet, but because you analysed the statistics you have been able to find good value for your bet. 

While this doesn’t guarantee that you will win your bets, it does increase your chances of getting good levels of return. The combination of statistics and in play betting can be applied to any sport, which will allow smart geeks to increase their winnings when taking part in online gambling.
