I have gambled on millions of hands of twenty-one. I began working my way into the gambling halls when I was sixteen. I have wagered on online vingt-et-un, I have counted cards, and worked with a team for a short time. Given all that I have still spent an abundance of money at vingt-et-un. The gambling halls have made it nearly impossible to defeat the casino.

I still like the game and gamble on a regular basis. Over this time period I have bet on a variation of 21 called "The Take it Leave it Method". You certainly won’t get loaded with this tactic or defeat the house, however you will have an abundance of fun. This method is centered on the fact that blackjack seems to be a game of streaks. When you are hot your hot, and when you’re not you are NOT!

I play basic strategy blackjack. When I don’t win I wager the lowest amount allowed on the subsequent hand. If I don’t win again I wager the table minimum on the successive hand again etc. Once I hit I take the winnings paid to me and I bet the initial bet 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 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 wagering 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 disciplined and never back out. It gets very enjoyable on occasion. If you succeed at a few hands in a row your wagers go up very fast. Before you realize it you are gambling $100-200/ hand. I have had great runs a number of times now. I departed a $5 table at the Venetian a number of years ago with $750 after 30 minutes using this method! And a few months ago in Macau I left a table with $1200!

You have to understand that you can lose a lot faster this way too!. But it really makes the game more thrilling. And you will be astonished at the streaks you see betting this way. Below is a guide of what you would wager if you kept winning at a $5 table.

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

Wager 5 dollar
Leave $5 paid to you for a total wager of $10

Wager 10 dollar
Take $10 paid to you, leave the first $10 wager

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

Wager 80 dollar
Leave 80 dollar paid to you for a total wager of one hundred and sixty dollar

Wager $160
Take $160 paid-out to you, leave the first 160 dollar wager

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

It’s hard to go on a streak this long, but it does happen. And when it does you mustn’t deviate and drop your bet or the end result won’t be the same.
