The Piquemouche strategy is one of the numerous variants of the famous Martingale roulette system. This is Progression System, but playing it you need to reduce the bet acceleration. Probably the most important problem of the Martingale, is that the bet size rises fast and in a case you are not too lucky you can reach the table limits after just several bets, which means you can’t double the sum of the bet the next time, so you will not be able to cover previous losses. This fact in its part makes the strategy useless.
Following Piquemouche scheme, you should double the size of the bets every three bets when you lose the game in contrast to the Martingale when you have to do it every time. So you diminish the risk to come over the bet limit and prolong the game.
Let’s compare two progressions:
If you play online roulette according to the Martingale strategy you have: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, … which quickly leads you to the bet limit
But when you choose Piquemouche strategy the progression you play will be the following: 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 4, 4, 4, 8, 8, 8 , 16, 16, 16, 32, 32, 32. It means you can freely play a 27 run progression, which gives to you more opportunities and tries.
But in contrast to Martingale, you can’t cover previous losses on a single bet. You need to have several wins in a row to do this. For instance, you lose the first 3 bets, then you have to win following 2 bets in order to cover you loss and move back to the profit.
We’ve already told you that any strategy has own week and strong points, so the Piquemouche decreases you potential risks, but it can’t completely cover your losses. But some people use it to make the initial bets higher. The Martingale is too risky, but the Piquemouche is suitable for it.
In a case you prefer high bets you can start gambling from 25, in that case you will get a progression of 12 bets: 25, 25, 25, 50, 50, 50, 100, 100, 100, 200, 200, 200, which looks very attractive. It combines two important points: you play high bets which means high prizes and at the same time you don’t risk much, because you chances to win one game from 12 are pretty high.
