Progressive betting systems by their very nature are fraught with danger, especially for average recreational gaming enthusiasts on a budget, because they involve putting more money at risk often above one’s comfort level. There is a rather ill-advised progression system when you are on a losing streak. The theory behind it is if you continue to increase your wager in incremental amounts when you’re losing, you’ll recoup it all when you win. The catch here is “when you win”. It would be better phrased “if you win” because more often than not, the winning hand or the winning spin that will get you out of the hole never comes and you’re out much more money than you ever planned to be. The progressive betting strategies that are the topic of today’s column are designed to be utilized when you’re on a winning streak. Increasing your wager when you’re winning instead of losing puts you in a position to take advantage of a fortuitous session of gambling, something you are unable to do if you continue betting the minimum when you’re on a roll. Today we’ll explore using a progressive betting strategy on a multi-line, multi-coin, penny video slot. Our example will employ the strategy of always betting max lines with the option of playing 40, 80, 120, 160, 200, or 240 credits (pennies) per line. If you are comfortable playing the minimum (40 cents per spin) that’s fine. But if you start seeing your credits add up with some solid line plays or a nice bonus round, now is the time to think about increasing your wager using a progressive betting system. The more credits you wager per line, the greater your multiplier will be on winning spins. Get into a bonus round and you have a chance to really make a

nice score. Denying yourself the opportunity to “hit a big one” by restricting your wager to the minimum or a similar lower amount is not the thing to do when you are money ahead. For example, try a progression by starting with a 40 credits spin, followed by 80 credits, then 120 credits. If you see things start to slow down or you are watching your profits diminish, go back to 40 credits or your comfort level. The amount at which you choose to cash out is a personal decision. You may wish to preserve some of the profit you have made, or simply cash out at what you bought in for and move on to another machine or call it a session and wait until next time. Always remember that progressive betting means you are putting more money at risk, something you have to be comfortable with before giving it a try. If you play the minimum of 40 cents per spin in our example, you can conservatively make a play every 10 seconds which means you are betting $2.40 per minute. If you start a progression of 40, 80, 120 on your spins you will increase your betting to $4.80 per minute. Take a step progression from 40 credits all the way up to 240 credits means that in one minute’s time you will have put $8.40 at risk. The rewards are there if you utilize the system wisely, especially if you get into a bonus round with max coins played.
