While searching the web a few weeks back, I came across this blog which had several interesting blackjack betting strategies. Being painstakingly bored, I decided that I would log onto my account and try some of them out.
The first system I used was the “Oscar Grid” and it was definitely my favourite because it was a real cash cow. With this betting system, you start out with a series of numbers. It can be as long or as short as you want. I used a series of 5 when I was playing. Next I wrote the series on a piece of paper like so, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Each number represents a single betting unit. I decided that I would use $10 as one unit.
The first hand I bet $10 and got blackjack. I crossed out the 1 and placed my next bet of two units ($20). I win my next bet and cross out the 2. I now go on to bet three units $30. Are you beginning to see how the system works now? Every time you win, your bet increases to the next number in the series. What happens when you lose? If you are to lose a hand, you place the same bet until you get a win. After you win you would continue to move up to the next number in the series. When you cross out your last number, start a new series from scratch.
Anyways, I brought $100 to the table with me and started playing the Oscar Grid. Within the next hour I was up to $350! Show me the money baby!
