Star Alternative Progression


In this article, we explore an alternative betting progression system, akin to the star system, designed to enhance your betting strategy. This system aims to provide a more efficient way to manage your bets, particularly in scenarios where you might experience consecutive losses.

Understanding the Basic Progression System

The basic progression system is outlined as follows, requiring two wins at any level to revert to the base bet:

  • Initial Sequence:
    1. Bet 1 unit, repeat if won
    2. Bet 2 units, repeat if won
    3. Continue doubling the bet until 16 units, then stop
  • Example Progression: 1, 1, 2, 2, 4, 4, 8, 8, 16, 16 (stop)

Recovery Progressions

In cases of losses, the system has recovery progressions:

Recovery 1

  1. Start with 2 units
  2. Double the bet each time until 32 units
  3. Example: 2, 2, 4, 4, 8, 8, 16, 16, 32, 32

Recovery 2

  1. Start with 6 units
  2. Double the bet each time, reaching 96 units
  3. Example: 6, 6, 12, 12, 24, 24, 48, 48, 96, 96
  4. Note: Loss of daily bankroll is possible at this point

The Star Alternative Progression 2

This variant mimics the star system with slight modifications:

    1. Bet 1 unit, win and parlay; move to next bet if lost
    2. Continue this pattern, doubling the bet after each loss
    3. At higher levels (16, 32 units), repeat the same bet after a loss
    4. The progression involves both winning a bet and then losing twice in a row to move to the next level


This alternative betting progression system offers a structured approach to betting, potentially reducing the bankroll requirement compared to the star system. It’s particularly suitable for table limits ranging from $5 to $500. However, it’s essential to approach this system with caution and awareness of the risks, especially the potential for losing the daily bankroll in the higher stages of the recovery progressions.
