It’s very rare but I have known lines sleep for over 80 spins. I prefer a gentle progression.

It’s very likely already been thought of and it may not be as profitable, as increasing your bet after 5 losses but most of the time, it is a lot easier on the bank-roll. I feel protecting that is a priority.

I use your method, to choose my line and keep betting one unit, until I get a win. If I break even or profit, I start again, otherwise I cross off 5 losses and increase my stake to 2 units until I get another win. I cross off 5 losses after each win. If there are still some uncrossed 1 unit losses, I stay with 2 units and so on.

This morning's session, was probably my worse but after playing 232 bets, I

still won 67 units.

Here is an example, from this morning’s session

I personally, would not want to risk a long run of losses at 6 units a pop, for the sake of a 6 unit drawdown but that’s just me. I have reduced the stakes to 3 units.L3W15 +12113 bets, 96 losses, 17 wins.Like I said earlier, this was my worse session yet, certainly not typical. After all that, I only made 6 units but I survived the losing run from Hell and came out ahead.
