1 3 2 6 System in Blackjack

The 1 3 2 6 System system may seem complicated, for sure in comparison to the simplest Paroli and Martingale betting systems, but it’s actually pretty easy for beginners to even get to grips with. It aims on taking advantages of streaks and involves increasing the stakes after each win. Like most casino betting strategies, it’s advised to only use this method in the short run and never long-term.

Also, it’s worth noting that you always set yourself a budget as there are advantages and disadvantages when using this system. Finally, no matter which system you decide to use, make sure to do it only in a trustworthy casino with instant or same day withdrawals.

How  1-3-2-6 System Works

The idea is to bet 1 unit, 3 units, 2 units and 6 units consecutively, hence the name of the system. However, you only increase the size of the unit once you have won a bet. If you manage to win four consecutive times then you will start again with one unit. If you manage to get to the middle of the cycle and then lose that bet, you will again start from the beginning.  For example, you are using £10 per unit. If you win your first bet, you will then wager £30, if you win that it will be £20, then finally £60. If you lose on your £30 bet then you will go back to one unit and place £10.


  • The system is easy to learn and follow. It’s used by beginners and experts as it’s a fun way of gambling
  • You aren’t chasing losses unlike some other systems such as the Martingale and anything you do lose is minimized
  • There’s every chance that you will win four times in a row which enables you to make an 11-unit profit on one cycle
  • You don’t need a huge bankroll to play the system


  • There’s no system that enables you to make a profit in the long-run. Meaning no matter which system you use, none of them will eliminate the casino house edge.

It’s worth noting that the use of Blackjack 1 3 2 6 system will have a slight differences in comparison to Roulette game play for example. It allows for splitting, insurance or doubling down which makes it more difficult than games such as roulette, for example. Players will start a new blackjack game after doubling down, whilst others will choose to continue playing and have the extra win as a bonus. If they lose, the progression is ended and in order to make money back from the loss, some double their initial wager. However, the best option would be to start again and make up for any losses by taking advantage of your final winnings.

Finally, please only use this system for entertainment purposes. Casinos should be fun and all gambling should be done responsibly.
