Betting Systems
A betting system is referred as a strategy for playing casino gambling games like roulette or blackjack in which a player raise or lower the amount of bet based on whether he/she won or lost the previous hand/spin. There are various betting systems around, but all of them fall into 2 general categories: "positive" systems when you need to increase your bet after you win and "negative" systems when you increase your bet after you lose. When gamblers discuss a blackjack strategy, the serious players refer to the basic blackjack strategy or/and to card-counting. These blackjack strategies are the ones that work much of the time for real blackjack winners and help them to increase their odds on the long run and on the short run as well.

But there are other "systems" or "strategies," which are more like betting strategies rather than blackjack playing strategies. As we already mentioned, progressive blackjack betting systems can be divided into 2 kinds, positive and negative. Both theories of thoughts have their plusses and minuses. The Martingale system is perhaps the best-known negative betting system - if you win you keep your bet steady, but if you lose you increase your bet. The Paroli betting system is a kind of "positive" systems, and can be viewed as the Anti-Martingale.

Playing Blackjack with the Paroli Betting System
In the Paroli betting system in blackjack, you start with betting the minimum bet amount. If you win your first hand you increase your next bet, instead of decreasing your next bet. If you lose, you go back to your original bet. Essentially, when you use the Paroli system, you are "pyramiding" your profits, building on the base of your successes and on the likelihood of hot winning streaks.

If you are going to use the Paroli betting strategy in blackjack games, it's wise to have a bigger plan before you sit down at the table. You need to look ahead when you use a progressive betting system and set your limits on losses and, probably, on winnings too. You should decide exactly how far you are going to increase your bets until you start another circle of betting over again. This depends on factors like the kind of blackjack or roulette game you're playing, the odds of the game, and the amount of money you're playing with (your bankroll).

How does the Paroli system work?
Let's look at the examples. Suppose you're playing at a blackjack table at which there is a $2 minimum. First, you place that minimum bet and you win $2, so your next bet is $4. If you win again, your next bet is $8, and so on. At some point you decide that the bet has gotten high enough even if you keep winning. In this case the bast way for you is to go back to the original bet and start new betting circle from there.

The Paroli system is considered as a relatively conservative system that does not require a large investment, especially if you set a point beyond which you're not willing to increase your bets. The Paroli is a relatively consistent and stable system, especially compared to other systems, particularly the "negative" ones like Martingale. Actually, the best way to win is combining good strategy and betting system. That's true for all games in gambling.

Benefits of Betting Systems
The good thing about most blackjack betting systems and Paroli in particular is that it does afford a good blackjack player the opportunity to win more money than if he were betting in a flat way. Paroli-armed player can lose more money but he can also increase his winnings and get ahead, which usually offsets the possibility of losing.

Blackjack Gambling Tips
The Paroli progressive betting system in blackjack, and any positive betting systems, is designed to take advantage of big streaks. The theory is that by raising your bets during a winning streak, you can win more money than if you keep betting a flat amount. If you are lucky enough to hit a bif streak (a big IF?!) the Paroli betting system offers you a chance to win a large amount of money in blackjack from a relatively small initial stake. You need less bankroll when you use the Paroli since you are not constantly trying to make up for what you've lost (catch losses).

On the other hand all hands/spins are supposed to be random and the previous results do not influence subsequent outcomes. In fact, the winning and loosing streaks are unpredictable and they can end as soon as they begin. In the long run, even with a positive betting system like the Paroli, blackjack players can lose their initial bankroll. A betting strategy without a built-in limit is a formula for disaster, so hedges are necessary for the serious blackjack players. We thank the Wild Jack online casino for the review.
