I have bet on millions of rounds of blackjack. I started sneaking into the gambling dens when I was still underage. I have played online blackjack, I have counted cards, and worked as part of a team for a short time. Given all that I have still spent all kinds of cash at twenty-one. The gambling halls have made it nearly impossible to defeat the house.

I still like the game and bet on a frequent basis. Over the years I have played a type of twenty-one called "The Take it Leave it Method". You will not get loaded with this tactic or beat the house, however you will experience an abundance of fun. This tactic is built on the fact that blackjack appears to be a game of runs. When you’re hot your hot, and when you are not you’re NOT!

I bet with basic strategy blackjack. When I do not win I bet the table minimum on the next hand. If I don’t win again I bet the table minimum on the successive hand again etc. As soon as I win I take the payout paid to me and I wager the initial wager again. If I win this hand I then leave the winnings paid to me and now have double my original bet on the table. If I win again I take the winnings paid to me, and if I win the next hand I leave it for a total of 4 times my original wager. I continue betting this way "Take it Leave it etc". Once I lose I lower the action back down to the original bet.

I am very disciplined and do not back out. It gets extremely fun on occasion. If you win a few hands in a row your bets go up very quick. Before you know it you are betting $100-200/ hand. I have had fantastic streaks a number of times now. I left a $5 table at the Venetian a number of years ago with $750 after 20 mins using this technique! And a couple of months ago in Sin City I left a table with $1200!

You need to understand that you can give away a lot faster this way too!. But it really makes the game more enjoyable. And you will be amazed at the streaks you witness wagering this way. Here is a chart of what you would wager if you continue winning at a 5 dollar table.

Wager $5
Take five dollar paid-out to you, leave the initial five dollar bet

Bet $5
Leave 5 dollar paid to you for a total bet of 10 dollar

Bet ten dollar
Take 10 dollar paid-out to you, leave the original $10 bet

Bet $10
Leave ten dollar paid to you for a total bet of twenty dollar

Bet 20 dollar
Take twenty dollar paid-out to you, leave the original twenty dollar wager

Bet 20 dollar
Leave 20 dollar paid-out to you for a total wager of 40 dollar

Wager forty dollar
Take forty dollar paid-out to you, leave the first $40 bet

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

Bet 80 dollar
Take $80 paid to you, leave the initial 80 dollar wager

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

Wager one hundred and sixty dollar
Take one hundred and sixty dollar paid to you, leave the original 1 hundred and 60 dollar bet

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

It is herculean to go on a streak this long, but it will happen. And when it does you can’t deviate and lower your bet or the end result won’t be the same.
