1-3-2-6 Betting System

The 1-3-2-6 betting system is a positive progressive betting system very easy to learn, similar to the Paroli system, which was first used on blackjack, baccarat and roulette. In the following lines we'll try to explain the basics of this betting system and see if it can also be used for betting on sports.

As the name suggests, the 1-3-2-6 betting system consists of a series of 4 numbers which indicates that a bettor must seek to win 4 bets in a row. The first bet has 1 unit stake, the second bet has a 3 unit stake, the third bet has a 2 unit stake and the fourth bet has a 6 unit stake.


Let's consider that 1 unit = $10 and we are betting on odds of evens (2.00).

  1. The first bet will have a $10 x 1 = $10 stake.
  2. If the first bet is winner, we move on into the series and we multiply the unit with the following number from the series: $10 x 3 = $30 stake.
  3. If the second bet is winner, we multiply the unit with the following number from the series: $10 x 2 = $20.
  4. If the third bet is winner, we place the last bet $10 x 6 = $60.

After 4 winning bets we'll have a profit of $120. In case of losing, at any point, we must go back to the initial stake.

The advantage of using this betting system is that if you lose at the beginning of the progression (first or second bet) there will be a really small net lose. If you lose the third or the fourth bet you will have a net gain or an even end.

If you don't want to take high risks with Martingale or Parlay, the 1-3-2-6 betting system is probably one of the best options. If you're a beginner, you should stick to small stakes for a while - and once you get used to this betting system and become more experienced, you can increase the stakes and move to a whole new level. A suggestion would be to place bets on events/markets with only two winning possibilities (such as tennis, volleyball, over/under etc.) in order to increase the chances of winning.

It's clear that this betting system is not 100% effective and it's no really excellent on long term, but for short term it can be really fun and interesting.
