1-3-2-6 betting system for blackjack is quite popular among experienced players who prefer to use special strategy. As you might already guessed this strategy is based on simple progression which is stated in the name of the system. Well, all you need to is to follow this progression – 1-3-2-6. The betting system is based on this pattern.

Basically, your steps would be: 1coin -> 3 coins -> 2 coins -> 6 coins. Sounds simple, doesn’t it?

1-3-2-6 system is based on widely known Paroli system. You can expect good results with this strategy if you win at least four consecutive rounds. We will explain you the mechanism below.

This blackjack system is the positive progression. It means that you need to constantly increase the amount you wager. The following example will help you to understand the algorithm of this strategy.

Let’s assume you are playing Classic blackjack. In the very first round your bet should be $1. In the second round you wager $3, in the third – $2, in the fourth – $6. Ok, your first bet is $1. Let’s assume you have won this round. Thus $1 is added to your bankroll. Your next bet should be $3, then $52 etc. Let’s assume you have successfully accomplished the whole betting cycle. Excellent! In this case your net profit will be $12! Ok, that’s clear. But what should we do if we lose or any of stages of our cycle? Unfortunately you will lose your bets quite often; there is nothing to do with that. The only thing you can do when you lose is to start your betting cycle from the very beginning regardless of your stage. Here we mean that you should come back to $1 bet even if you have won two previous rounds.

Therefore you play betting cycles regardless of the result. Once again your goal is to win 4 consecutive rounds. The main advantage of 1-2-3-6 strategy is that the player risks a small amount of money. At the same time he has a good chance of winning good money. Basically you can lose a few cycles and compensate your loses by completing just 1 cycle.
This strategy is quite popular among blackjack lovers. But you should remember that the usage of the system doesn’t guarantee you winning. You just increase your chances a bit.
