I’ve been playing blackjack for about 15 years with limited successes I have mastered basic strategy and have never attempted counting. I’ve always thought that varying bets and hoping to get lucky on your big bets was the best way to win. I recently read about the martingale betting strategy and have been using it the past three times I’ve gone and I’m up over $500 in just about 3 hours of playing (I know this isn’t a huge sample size). I’m using a base bet of $5 and haven’t lost past the $80 round yet. It’s fun and seems to be working but dangerous! Have you used this betting strategy? What have been your experiences and expectations?
