1-3-2-6 System

How the 1-3-2-6 System works

The 1-3-2-6 System has a similar strategy as the Parlay System, but with some added security.

How It Works
The system works as it’s name; your first bet is your original stake, the second bet is three times as much, the third half as much and the fourth three times as much. Sound confusing? If you bet £10 with odds of evens on your first bet, and win. You take your £10 winnings, £10 returned stake, add another £10 and your second bet becomes a £30 stake. Win again, and you move onto stage three; double your original stake, so £20 in this example. If that wins, you’d have made £60 which you stake on the fourth bet. If it comes in, you’re up £120, if it doesn’t, you break even and start the system again. Only on the first two stakes are you at risk of going into negative figures.

The system is more-commonly used in casinos where you can get odds of evens on blackjack and roulette for example. Whilst you don’t have to bet on evens odds necessarily for this system to work, we wouldn’t recommend you dropping below evens.

The system relies on you winning 4 times in a row, which does happen, but if you lose too many times and are in negatives, then you should be looking at the Martingale System for a successful strategy to take.

You don’t need a big investment to use this system, and when you’re winning you’re not risking losing all your money on the next bet, which is a good security blanket.

Example 1: Blackjack
£10 on first hand – you win – £10 profit
Add £10 to total, to stake £30 – dealer busts – £40 total profit
Take out £40, stake £20 – dealer busts – £60 total profit
Stake £60 – you win – £120 total profit

Example 2: Roulette
£100 on red – red comes in – £100 profit
Add £100 to total, to stake £300 on red – red comes in – £400 total profit
Take out £200, stake £200 on black – red comes in – back to beginning
£100 on black – black comes in – £100 profit
Add £100 to total, to stake £300 on red – red comes in – £400 total profit
Take out £200, stake £200 on black – black comes in – £600 total profit
Stake £600 on red – red comes in – £1,200 total profit – back to beginning
