 # The Zero Factor-Betting Systems Spin 1: (1 Low + 1 High) We bet Nothing as the two are equal. Decision: 5 Low. Net Result: 0
Spin 2: (1 Low + 2 High) We bet 1 on High as 2 – 1 = 1. Decision: 6 Low. We lose. Acc Net Result: -1
Spin 3: (1 Low + 4 High) We bet 3 on High as 4 – 1 = 3. Decision: 10 Low. We lose. Acc Net Result: -4
As we lost the 4 units on High, we terminate the session.

As you can see, the bankroll needed is not 7 units; it’s only 4! But this is the Martingale; I have used it in the examples because it is a simple progression and it clearly shows what is happening. As I have said before; any progression can be used. When using the Martingale progression, we mostly have a lowest bet of 1 unit, meaning that the other bets are not lowered very much. There can be a big difference, however, if you use a progression that does not immediately return to the lowest bet after a win (and/or you start with another value than 1). Such a progression is the d’Alembert; increase your bet 1 unit after a loss and decrease it 1 unit after a win. Let’s see what would have happened if we had used this progression instead, betting the ten spins from Part 1.

Spin 1: (1 Low + 1 High) We bet Nothing as the two are equal. Decision: 25 High. Net Result: 0
Spin 2: (2 Low + 1 High) We bet 1 on Low as 2 – 1 = 1. Decision: 10 Low. We win. Acc. Net Result: +1
Spin 3: (1 Low + 2 High) We bet 1 on High as 2 – 1 = 1. Decision: 18 Low. We lose. Acc Net Result: 0
Spin 4: (1 Low + 3 High) We bet 2 on High as 3 – 1 = 2. Decision: 25 High. We win. Acc Net Result: +2
Spin 5: (2 Low + 2 High) We bet Nothing as the two are equal. Decision: 33 High. Acc Net Result: +2
Spin 6: (3 Low + 1 High) We bet 2 on Low as 3 – 1 = 2. Decision: 7 Low. We win. Acc Net Result: +4
Spin 7: (2 Low + 2 High) We bet Nothing as the two are equal. Decision: 30 High. Acc Net Result: +4
Spin 8: (3 Low + 1 High) We bet 2 on Low as 3 – 1 = 2. Decision: 7 Low. We win. Acc Net Result: +6
Spin 9: (2 Low + 2 High) We bet Nothing as the two are equal. Decision: ZERO! Acc Net Result: +6
Spin 10: (3 Low + 3 High) We bet Nothing as the two are equal. Decision: 29 High. Acc Net Result: +6

Compare this result with the two results from betting one side at the time or the added result of both – these figures:
Low: Bet total 20 units, Won total 18 units giving the Net total -2 units
High: Bet total 18 units, Won total 22 units giving the Net total +4 units
Low/High Added: Bet total 38 units, Won total 40 units giving the Net total +2 units
Low/High Difference: Bet total 8 units, Won total 14 units giving the Net total +6 units.
This is FOUR UNITS MORE – the bet we didn’t do when the Zero hit (Spin 9)! Also note that only a total of EIGHT units were at stake, instead of 38 – not even one quarter of the added bets!

Suppose now, that we have four Low hits in a row:

Spin 11: (4 Low + 2 High) We bet 2 on Low as 4 – 2 = 2. Decision: 16 Low. We win. Acc Net Result: +8
Spin 12: (3 Low + 3 High) We bet Nothing as the two are equal. Decision: 18 Low. Acc Net Result: +8
Spin 13: (2 Low + 4 High) We bet 2 on High as 4 – 2 = 2. Decision: 17 Low. We lose. Acc Net Result: +6
Spin 14: (1 Low + 5 High) We bet 4 on High as 5 – 1 = 4. Decision: 15 Low. We lose. Acc Net Result: +2

Now, the figures are:
Low: Bet total 30 units, Won total 38 units giving the Net total +8 units
High: Bet total 32 units, Won total 22 units giving the Net total -10 units

Low/High Added: Bet total 62 units, Won total 60 units giving the Net total -2 units
Low/High Difference: Bet total 16 units, Won total 18 units giving the Net total +2 units

By using only 16 units instead of 62 – close to 25% – we have turned a negative result into a positive one! There is still only the four units difference (due to the Zero at Spin 9) but in this case that is enough to keep us on the safe side. For a while…

As a final, let me show you the Reversed Labouchere applied to the difference betting on the 14 spins above. I will use the line (also bankroll) “1 – 2 – 3 – 4” (first bet is 5 units, total bankroll is 10), adding won bets (to the right) and canceling lost ones. Minimum bet is 5 units. This one is going to LOSE! Here we go:

Spin 14: (8 Low + 5 High) We bet 3 on Low as 8 – 5 = 3. Decision: 15 Low. We win. Acc Net Result: -8

At the end of this series of 14 spins, we could have (if we had bet the added bets) been betting a whopping 178 units (Low 92, High 86) and won a total of 154 units (Low 98, High 56) giving a total net result of -24. We also had to be prepared to use at least seven bankrolls (5 lost and two in working), meaning a total of at least 70 units. Betting the difference, we had a TOTAL of 22 units AT STAKE – that’s less than the TOTAL RESULT for betting the added – and won 14 giving us a net result of -8. In terms of bankrolls/lines we never used two as worst down was 13 units and in terms of betting only one side, we can divide the added result by two to get a figure in between: Bet 89 units, Won 77 units, Lost 2.5 lines or bankrolls and having a total of 6.5 units in profit, working. So at least 4 bankrolls were needed here, meaning a total of 40 units as we lost 2.5 x 10 units and have one line in working. The “difference betting” did never even get close to two.

In my opinion, this is saving money!
