Fractional Betting System Explained
The Fractional betting system can be used for Blackjack, Baccarat or Roulette, with some success.
When using the Fractional betting system you should always consider 2 wins or 2 losses as the beginning of a trend. On the next wager, you will act accordingly. This ensures you will never miss a trend no matter how short or how long it may be.
Your wagers will take advantage of the trend no matter how short it is.
You will get chips of various denominations. If you bet $5 chips, then you need $5 and $1 chips. If you wager $25 chips, they also have plenty of $5 chips, and maybe even $1 depending on how accurate you want to be.
After 2 wins you will increase your wager by 1/3 of your last wager.
After 2 losses you will decrease your wager by 2/3 of your last wager. You will continue to decrease by 2/3 on each loss until you hit the table minimum.
In the typical chop trend, you expect a win after a loss and a loss after a win. So after 1 loss, increase your wager by 1/3. After 1 win decreases your wager by 2/3.
Your first wager should always be 3 times the minimum bet when you first begin playing.
This is the basics of fractional wagering. There are many finer points, tricks, and tips that I have developed over the years, but I have neither the time nor desire to go into that much detail.
This method of play is very successful on any of the even chance wagers in the casino. My preference is Blackjack, but I have used it successfully in Baccarat and Roulette.
You will not win large sums of money every time you play, but you will stay very close to even most of the time, lose very little when you lose, and you will occasionally win large sums when you hit the inevitable win streak.
“After 2 wins you will increase your wager by 1/3 of your last wager.
After 2 losses you will decrease your wager by 2/3 of your last wager. You will continue to decrease by 2/3 on each loss until you hit table minimum.”
You begin playing at any time. 3 times the table minimum is your first bet.
You were close:
25 red / win / +25
25 red / win / +50 (2 wins so increase 1/3 to 33.00
33 red / win / +83 (+1/3 now to 44.00)
44 red / loss / +39 (increase 1/3 looking for a win after loss)
58 red / loss / -19 / (2 losses so decrease 2/3 too)
19 red / win / +0 / (after win look for loss decrease 2/3)
6 red / loss / -6 / (after loss look for win increase 1/3)
8 red / win / +2 / (after win look for loss decrease 2/3)
5 (assumes table min.) red / loss / -3
Hope that is more clear. I can tell you, I have friends who tried to simulate the Fractional betting system with a negative result. But I have been playing it live forever and rarely have a losing session, and have never lost. If this strategy doesn’t work for you then there are so many others such as the Small Wins system, Stan’s system or the Star Alternative progression system.
