I don't think so, the chances of you losing 6 times in a row are exactly the same in the first spins as they are spins later, that is Supaman89 talk , 5 May UTC. It is comparing a loss per round with a loss per roll and indicating that there is a difference in the edge. You don't need complicated stat equations to prove to yourself that this does indeed work. In most casino games, the expected value of any individual bet is negative, so the sum of lots of negative numbers is also always going to be negative. Here's a more detailed explanation. As of February , "External links modified" talk page sections are no longer generated or monitored by InternetArchiveBot.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Well, duh, Einstein, how is that possible in real life? Of course, given unlimited time and limited money you will mathematically still eventually lose everything. It's risk free for him and it's risk free for meβand yet I know I will win the amount I want. I'd keep it as is. Let's remove this misleading reasoning, please. You see there are 36 possible combinations of dice, 17 of which win you money and 19 of which where you lose money. The system not only requires the player to have an unlimited bankroll, it also requires the casino to have unlimited solvency so it can keep paying off possible wins as the stakes increase. Could someone explain me how to get the value for probability of 6 concesutive losses within e. My goal was to provide a more mathematical discussion of the "certain to win eventually" property at a reasonably elementary level, and to show its inapplicability to the real world in a different light than just negative expectation under bounds on time or money which is also true, of course. NO method works. We should also show a graph that illustrates the Martingale payoff. On an unrelated note, does anyone know the origin of the term "martingale", and how it's related to this betting system? I believe that this betting strategy is a sure method of not losing money and possibly winning money, just not very much relative to what you've already got. I have just added some new text, probably too wordy, under "mathematical analysis". Anyway, why is everyone using examples of loosing 6 times in a row. Objective talk , 18 April UTC. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}I am confused and would appreciate any insight into how a game like blackjack, where sometimes the odds pay more than affect this system? I think there is some duplication of material already present in the article, but I preferred not to change anything written by others at my current level of experience. Sure you could get a very unlucky streak but the odds are in your favor to win. If you were able to give me some general formula for it I would be very thankful. There are basically two main factors in determing how much you'll win. This is just stupid absolutistic idealistic analysis of a situation where you play for an infinite amount of time. Martingale makes no difference to edge. The zero, very deadly. However I can't prove that this is true mathematically, is anyone here an expert who can tell me if I'm wrong? There is a horror story, then you must recoup your losses. I had not heard of the name of the theory, only the method of essentially doubling one's bet upon sequential losses. Martingale works. Like warning to some gambling addicts that this will not work. The math here still looks incorrect. This is one of the best betting strategies on roulette and works pretty good if you find a high limit table somewhere.. But does the strategy really require that the gambler has an infinite wealth? It would be more plausible to merge this into that article. In practice casinos couldnt care less about Martingale or any other theory. I was wondering if there is a modified martingale system that would let you gain on a bet by more than doubling the new bet after a failed bet. It claims that the expected profit is The formula only assumes that the player wins once and stops playing. As an example, note tha the current formula shows the correct payoff if there are consistent losses on all x plays, but does not show the correct payoff if there are consistent gains on all x plays. Someone might be interested in correcting what appears on the Roulette article. I think the math in that section is incorrect, indeed, betting for one colour either red or black gives you a I myself have tried spinning the roulette times and more, and if those calculations stated above were true, I would have a Besides if those calculations were correct, and the chances of losing 6 times in a row increased by the number of spins I play, what would happen if I stopped every once in a while and started from 0 all over again? No: With lots of small bets, you will over time approach closer and closer to an outcome reflecting the real odds which of course are against you. I removed this with a reason in the edit summary, but User:Objective undid it without one "revert". It's still stupid to bet against the house, of course, but the odds do not become so decisive to the house's advantage, of course until you make lots of bets. Shreevatsa talk , 16 November UTC. Out of the bracket, a quick buck. I was thinking about the same thing; I think that if one did indeed have infinite available cash and no table cap you could always be 'up' if following a martingale strategy. This seems pretty POV to me.. Gambling is by definition not risk-free. Is this encyclopedic? For something to have advantage, there must be risks. Is there any reason why this should not be merged into the main Martingale article? Since in such games of chance the bets are independent, the expectation of all bets is going to be the same, regardless of whether you previously won or lost. That's five billion dollars. Would it make sense to add a bit here about Nick Leeson , who destroyed the Barings' Bank with what was in effect a martingale series of bets of the Nikkei index? Am I really an idiot then? This reasoning, "intuitive" though it might be, is actually incorrect unless the stopping time has finite expectation. Oh well. I have just added archive links to one external link on Martingale betting system. I would pay him back everything within a minute or soβguaranteed. For that to be true e. It's my first logged-in Wikipedia edit, and a bit of an experiment to see if I can do it right. The example is misleading. I'm not sure of exactly how the Wikipedia stands on howtos Question: who invented the Martingale system, and when? I found it hard to deduce some formula on my own. Thank you very much. Roulette is a game of pure chance - there is no skill - every number has an equal chance of coming up but the payouts are made at under the odds. Luckily, the series can be reduced to a closed-form solution. I acctually thought of this theory without any help when i was 12 years old, was planning on trying it out today then looked it up and it seems to be v well known. Since expectation is linear, the expected value of a series of bets is just the sum of the expected value of each bet. Also, when you play the casino, expect there to be a straight that WILL wipe you out. I made the following changes:. There is a "mergeinto" template for that purpose. The correct way to show the expected payoff of a martingale involves combinatorics and the series of corresponding payoffs and probabilities. I agree that the analysis is completely incorrect - so incorrect that it should be removed until it is re-written correctly. Now i havn't thought about this alot but the only reason i can think for not doing this is you will be winning tiny stakes :S. I found this article in searching this exact topic. Please take a moment to review my edit. It is proposed to merge this "with" martingale probability theory. It would have similar risks and would risk the catastrophic failure point quicker, but adds the possibility of reward rather than just breaking even. Had it been merged with the other topic, I likely would not have found it, much less realized the correlation between the two. So the given calculations do not look right. It's unlikely that you'll lose any money by withdrawing it at profit at some point if you have a lot of money and play with smaller bets. Added for the obvious: an article shouldn't be calling anyone 'foolish', etc. Eventually you will get blackjack, which pays which should increase the winning chances right? I would easily try this out once as soon as I have a companion that could lend me any amount of money for a very short period of time without interest. That is why we have the conditions in the optional stopping theorems β we need a finite lifetime and a limit on bets. Or just link me some site with explanation how to count it. In the introduction of the article it says the gambler's expected value does indeed remain zero But I think the expected value of the stopped martingale the martingale stopped at the stopping time defining the martingale strategy is not zero but one.
