a) The Martingale System

The Martingale System is a betting system that progressively adjust bets in casino games such as Baccarat, Roulette, Blackjack and Craps. In addition to eliminating the tie bet with the banker hand, the Martingale System is one of the most widely used betting strategies by gamblers.

The system was devised by a French mathematician named Paul Pierre Levy. Other myth told that it was devised by the unscrupulous casino owner called John Martingale

In the game of baccarat, a particular hand is bound to win payout in the long run at some point. The Martingale System says that one should double down on the next bet if the last bet lost. For instance, if you place an SGD10 bet and lost, then you should place SGD20 on the next wager on the same hand. If the SGD20 lost, then double to SGD40 on the next bet. If you win, then take your winnings and re-bet with original value of SGD10. If the banker wins, then re-bet with your original SGD10 bet.

The idea is that the bettor will win the biggest bet of the cycle. The system has proven an almost 100% success rate in the long run. But it is not a sure-thing, there are a few risks to take as well such as:

* It is not ideal for anyone with a small bankroll.

* If you experience many successive losses, doubling more bets will lead you to reach the table's limit.

* You may need to bet many, many time to win some money.

* Some casinos do not allow the use of the Martingale System.

b) The Fibonacci System

The idea of the Fibonacci Strategy is that for every bet that you lose, you should increase it on the next wager. This cycle continues until you win. When you keep making subsequently bigger bets in spite of your losses, you will have a high chance of winning back your last two bets that you have lost as some point,

For example, if the player's hand starts with a SGD10 bet and he lose his first two wagers, then his third bet should be 3x of the original wager (SGD10x3). If third bet wins, then he will earn SGD30 payout which is the amount he has lost in the first two wagers. Basically, it is to bet SGD10 until you lose, and then bet SGD20 until you lose, then increase it to SGD50, SGD80, SGD130 and so on according to the Fibonacci sequence.

You should revert to your original SGD10 bet at no matter what stage you have won.

c) The Labouchere System

This Baccarat strategy was founded by a French Roulette player named Henry Labouchere, this system has several names including American Progression, the Cancellation System, and the Split Martingale. It is a complex system which only works really well once you have mastered it.

This negative progression system is about increasing your wager after every lost bet. This system's principle is that one should be able to recover from a losing streak with a few wins. An example:

Rule 1:

Create a sequence of your choice, e.g. 1-2-3.

Rule 2:

Bet using the amount equal to the sum of the first and last number on the sequence. With the example above, you will bet SGD3 (sum of SGD1 (first) and SGD3 (last)). But wouldn’t that be the sum of SGD4?

Rule 3:

If the bet wins, eliminate the first and the last number on the sequence. You will be left with SGD4, which means the next bet should be worth this amount.

Rule 4:

Add a number to the sequence if you lose. If the wager loses, you have to add SGD4 to the end of the list, so your sequence becomes 1-2-3-4. From hereon, your next bet should be $50, the sum of the first and last numbers.

The gist of it all is to include a number to the end of the sequence if you lose. Otherwise, remove the first and last numbers if you win. Do that until a single number remains.

d) The Paroli System

The Paroli System is also known as the Reverse Martingale System. It is an ancient technique which has been used since the 16th century in Italy where it was used on a card game called Basset. This system is highly effective on games such as Baccarat, Roulette, Pai Gow, Sic Bo and Craps.

The idea from the Paroli System is that you should double up your bet every time you win until you lose. The core objective is to gain 3 wins in a row. For instance:

Step 1:

- Wager SGD10 until you win. Then double to SGD20. If you lose, return to Step 1. If you win, go to Step 2.

Step 2:  

- Wager SGD20 until you win. Then double to SGD40. If you lose, return to Step 1. If you win, double up again and bet SGD80

Step 3:

- Wager SGD80 until you win. If you lose, return to Step 1. If you win, go back to Step 1 as well.

The Paroli gameplay will go on until you lose or win three times in a row. Then, the circle begins from start again.

e) The D’Alembert System

The D’Alembert System is a positive progressive system created by Jean le Rond d'Alembert (an 18th century French theorist). The system is designed to cushion players from making steep and quick losses. It is also designed to recoup lost money.

Firstly, pick a base unit, which is usually the value of a single chip or token. If it is an SGD1 chip, then the base unit is 1. You need to increase your next bet by 1 chip for every bet you have lost. E.g. if you started with an SGD5 bet and lost, your next bet shall be SGD6.

If that single chip (SGD5) wins, keep betting on it until you lose, which you will increase the wager by 1 chip. For every wins, you should take away one chip (E.g. if you have increased your bet to SGD10 five losses in a row, then remove one chip to bring your next wager down to SGD9).

This system's concept is that losses and wins are going to eventually even out. Hence, balancing your playing field with moderate losses and wins.
