My Casino Twenty-one Variety Game

I have bet on millions of rounds of twenty-one. I began sneaking into the casinos when I was still underage. I have bet on online chemin de fer, I have counted cards, and worked with a team for a short while. Given all that I have still spent all kinds of money at twenty-one. The gambling halls have made it almost impossible to beat the casino.

I still enjoy the game and play on a regular basis. Over the years I have wagered on a variation of twenty-one called "The Take it Leave it Method". You won’t get loaded with this method or defeat the casino, still you will have an abundance of fun. This method is built on the idea that 21 appears to be a game of runs. When you’re on fire your hot, and when you are not you’re NOT!

I wager with basic strategy 21. When I don’t win I wager the lowest amount allowed on the next hand. If I do not win again I wager the table minimum on the next hand again etc. As soon as I profit I take the payout paid to me and I bet the original bet again. If I win this hand I then keep in play the winnings paid to me and now have double my original bet on the table. If I succeed again I take the winnings paid to me, and if I win the next hand I leave it for a total of four times my original wager. I continue betting this way "Take it Leave it etc". Once I don’t win I return the action back down to the original amount.

I am very strict and do not back out. It gets extremely fun on occasion. If you succeed at a few hands in series your bets go up very quickly. Before you know it you are wagering $100-200/ hand. I have had fantastic streaks a couple of times now. I departed a $5 table at the Paris a number of years back with $750 after 20 mins using this technique! And a number of weeks ago in Vegas I left a game with $1200!

You must understand that you can give up a great deal faster this way too!. But it really makes the game more enjoyable. And you will be surprised at the runs you witness playing this way. Below is a chart of what you would wager if you continue winning at a $5 game.

Bet five dollar
Take 5 dollar paid to you, leave the initial five dollar bet

Wager five dollar
Leave five dollar paid to you for a total wager of 10 dollar

Wager $10
Take 10 dollar paid to you, leave the initial $10 bet

Wager ten dollar
Leave 10 dollar paid-out to you for a total wager of twenty dollar

Bet twenty dollar
Take 20 dollar paid to you, leave the first 20 dollar bet

Wager $20
Leave $20 paid-out to you for a total bet of 40 dollar

Bet 40 dollar
Take 40 dollar paid to you, leave the first $40 bet

Wager $40
Leave forty dollar paid-out to you for a total wager of 80 dollar

Bet $80
Take eighty dollar paid-out to you, leave the first 80 dollar wager

Bet $80
Leave 80 dollar paid-out to you for a total bet of one hundred and sixty dollar

Wager 160 dollar
Take $160 paid to you, leave the first one hundred and sixty dollar bet

If you departed at this moment you would be up 315 dollar !!

It is herculean to go on a run this long, but it does happen. And when it does you can NOT deviate and drop your wager or the final result will not be the same.
