People have been coming up with clever ways to win at games of chance for as long as gambling has existed. Countless betting strategies have emerged over the years as a result of these efforts, some better known than others. Systems like the Martingale, Labouchere, and Fibonacci attract the most attention, and no wonder. They have been around for decades, even centuries.

In today’s article, we are going to discuss a less popular system known as the 2-1-2. It borrows its name from one of the area codes for Manhattan, New York City’s most densely populated borough, and is intended for gamblers who seek to exploit streaks of successive wins. Without further ado, let us get straight into how the 2-1-2 system works.

Bet Sizing with the 2-1-2 System

The 2-1-2 is a positive progressive betting system which means it requires players to increase their wagers after winning rounds. Its milder progression and lower volatility render it suitable for more risk-averse players looking to extract greater value from their winning streaks.

The 2-1-2 Betting System in Action

In this section, we provide an example of the 2-1-2 betting system in action to demonstrate how it works in the real casino environment. European roulette played on a single-zero wheel is our game of choice for this example. It offers several outside bets with even-money payouts on number properties like red-black, odd-even, and high-low.

For simplicity purposes, we have selected a base betting unit of $10 to start our hypothetical session with. Examine the table below before we proceed with the explanation.

As you can see, the hypothetical player in this example was lucky enough to experience a hot streak of five winning rounds in a row, gradually increasing their wager by one unit after the second consecutive win. After winning the first round with a $20 bet (2 x $10 base units), the player reverted to a single base unit for the second round.

This spin produced a second win, earning him $20 in total profits on top of the $40 they collected during the first successful round. Keep in mind the original wagers are also included in the calculations. The second successive win called for a bet increase to two units so the player pushed out $20 on the third round.

A streak of winning rounds ensued, causing the player to continue raising by one unit (or $10), going all the way up to $50 on the sixth spin. This is where the winning streak unfortunately ended and so did the betting session. The player generated $190 in total returns during the first five spins.

Variation of the 2-1-2 Betting System

We previously mentioned in brief about a variation of the 2-1-2 betting system where you start over after a loss rather than quitting so let’s elaborate on that. With this variant of the strategy, you can continue playing after a loss but you must drop down to one base unit for the next round.

As the table above indicates, the main difference in this variation of the system is that the player sticks to one unit after losing a single-unit wager. In our case, a single-unit loss first occurred on the second spin so the player wagered one unit on the third round.

A streak of three consecutive wins came next, followed by a loss on the sixth spin, at which point the player reverted to their original two-unit bet. The seventh round was successful and called for a reduction to one unit. The player lost again and wagered a single unit on the ninth spin when things again began to turn around in his favor.

With this variant of the 2-1-2 system, the player drops down to two units after an unsuccessful round unless they have lost one unit on the previous spin, in which case they must bet one unit next. Another variation of the strategy requires you to raise your bet from one to three units after a second winning round.
