The Doubling Strategy for Playing Craps
Many players tend to confuse the third strategy on our list with the aforementioned Reverse Martingale. Such mistakes can be attributed to the name of the system. Nevertheless, the Doubling strategy differs from the Reverse Martingale in one very important aspect – in this case, bettors do not collect their winnings but leave them on the layout instead, thus, their bets are doubled. If the player happens to win a second time in a row, they would still leave their chips on the table, so that both the initial bet and the winnings are doubled once again.
To illustrate how the Doubling strategy works, we can assume our friend George has given up on the Martingale and has decided to try the Doubling strategy for change. George places a $1 bet on the pass and wins another $1 right away. But he is smart enough not to collect his winnings, so his bet on the next roll amounts to $2. Provided that George wins again, he will collect $4, three of which are net profits. If luck fails him the third time, he will lose only his initial $1 stake. As becomes evident, this strategy enables players to accumulate substantial profits when riding a good streak, while at the same time if a loss occurs, they will only part with humble amounts of money.
