Does your definition of FLAT BETTING, contain a PARLAY?
« on: March 05, 2017, 06:29:43 PM »
Hello Players,
I am a big believer in a 1 or 2 step parlay / press / paroli, whatever you want to call it. My primary daily play revolves completely around flat betting and a parlay, usually a single, but at certain times, a double press.
So, as you can see by the question above, do you consider my play a FLAT BET ?, or maybe a type of HYBRID?
The parlay is not always in play when my method is being used, but because I have such a high percentage hit rate, on the even chances, the press is not just recovery, it is part of a positive progression. ( flat bet and beyond)
Regardless of how I actually play the game, would you give me your opinions on this topic?

Thank you for your consideration!   ~          The Juice

Isn't the Paroli a flat betting system until it gets a win?

Reyth, I guess a better way to ask the question would be.....
Would you consider a persons who claims to WIN flat betting, truthful, if he or she includes a parlay as part of their method?
Some parlays are not all flat, some require additional units added in recovery.
Parlays as a rule always start flat, yes, but is a flat bet method that wins due in part to the parlay, considered truly flat?
What say you?

I regard any   1 unit Bet as a Flat Bet   because it loses only 1 unit not multiple units if lost .  This can be a single spin or two or more.

In my early of playing roulette i used the following system.At the table the payouts are not removed by the croypier.
I started always with one unit on R/B, H/L , and E/O, opposite the last spin.
I withdraw the payoutof 16 units. It was based  on thee image of the triangle of Blaise Pascal. A consecutive row of an EC appears  once on 16 spins. by playing all the ECs you spread the risk. The anomalies of the variance are in your benefit.

If you mean let it ride for the next bet then the amount of 100 units stay the same for both flatbetting and up as you go.

But if you parlay up and down based upon your strike ratio then it is a true parlay and would not be the same 100 units and a different ball game.

Cheers
