"One of the longest known betting strategies in gambling known as the Martingale, was founded sometime during the 18th century in France. This iconic strategy has been used in games like roulette even still to this day. But how does the Martingale function? How does it compare to all the other betting strategies such as Masse Egale, or the famous Paroli? Unlike the Paroli, this strategies role is the complete opposite of how Paroli works. The Martingale was designed strictly for when a bet is lost the next bet will then be a double wager. All-though the Martingale has seen sure fire success, many gamblers using the method can easily go home burdening a heavy loss. One of the negative features of this strategy lies within its losing streaks. Common practice with this method drives the player to double his bet after every loss. However, depending on how much your betting can be detrimental. Unlike the Paroli, there is a higher stress level involved caused by bets progressively inclining, instead of constantly staying the same.
