Types of Blackjack Betting Strategies

Most of the betting strategies for this game are progressive betting systems. These kinds of systems involve increasing or decreasing your bet (depending on your last hand).

Oscar’s System

This system was proposed by mathematician Dr. Allan Wilson in the 1960s.Its goal is to win one unit per series. You start a series by placing a bet of one unit. If you win, add a unit; if you lose, your next bet must stay the same. Believe it or not, that’s it for this one – straightforward enough.

2-1-2 (Manhattan) Strategy

Important to know with this strategy is that there is no mathematical basis for streaks (hot or cold) at blackjack. Mathematicians themselves believe in no such thing as a streak, whereas a player will swear otherwise.

This unit is very similar to Oscar’s system, however, instead of maintaining the same bet if you lose a series, the 2-1-2 strategy says to go back to your original bet (not the previous series, but the very beginning). This strategy is best used when one experiences a dip in their “streak” as the aim here is to avoid big losses. This is capitalizing on a good run of cards. This strategy is low risk, low reward (unless you are on a winning streak).

Playing Multiple Spots

This category is the popular myth that playing many hands increases your chances of winning. This is certainly exciting gameplay; however, it does not improve your win rate. There is no harm in forming your own strategy and doing what works for you but remember the core responsibility principles of managing your bets, time and basic strategy.

You cannot hope to win if at Blackjack if you do not know the rules or have no fundamental goal or strategy in place. In the end, betting strategies and systems help you to manage your bankroll better, as well as, keep you focused.
