A Betting System is a set of rules that some players follow that they believe give them an improved chance of winning a game of chance at a casino.
Most of these are for use on even money bets only so you won’t strike it rich by winning a large amount in one go. Although the casino will more than likely beat you in the long run – when was the last time you heard of a casino going bust? In the short term, some of them help you finish ahead and can enhance your enjoyment of the game.
Here we look at the Pluscoup Progression Betting System.
What is the Pluscoup Progression Betting System?
The Pluscoup Progression betting system is winning or ‘up as you win’ progression system.
It is similar to other betting systems in that bets are made on even money selections and increase in size after a win but is more aggressive than some systems that only aim to make a profit of one unit.
How it works
The first bet size is always 1 unit.
If this first bet wins, then the attack is terminated and again 1 unit is bet.
If the first bet loses, the bet size remains 1 unit up to the first win.
After the first hit with 1 unit, the bet size is increased to 2 units.
As long as the balance is negative, after a win, the bet size is increased by 1 unit.
This raise after a win is to be continued, until either a positive balance is achieved, or up to a specific relation between wins and losses.
Which of these two possibilities the user selects, depends on his personal preferences. One prefers to secure with small bankroll requirements a small win, the other one accepts a higher downswing if he can realize thereby a substantial win.
The Pluscoup Progression betting system is a very shallow progression, with which the bet size rises only slowly.
Example of the Pluscoup Progression Betting System
In the following example on BLACK / RED we try to win 8 units.
For simplicity we bet only on RED:
With a balance of +9, the session is terminated. In 42 spins RED loses 23 times and wins only 19 times. However, the result is quite impressive. The cautious player could have reduced the last bet of 3 units to 2 units in order to achieve the target gain of 8 units, herewith protecting his bankroll. Disadvantage: the smaller bankroll requirement reduces profits.
Even with larger tensions between losses and wins the Pluscoup Progression still leads to remarkable profits. The bankroll requirements are much lower than for example the Labouchere progressions.
The Pluscoup Progression betting system seems to be the only one of the well-known progressions, especially in the above case, in which only a few plus spins are missing to reach a positive balance, with by far the smallest bankroll requirements.
In combination with a good bet selection, the Pluscoup Progression betting system leads to very stable results.
