Arthur C Clarke’s strategies for roulette, blackjack and online slots

Hello, my name is Arthur C Clarke, and I am an online casino gambling expert with more than 15 years of experience in this field. I’ve played just about every online casino game out there and made a lot of money by establishing a wide range of winning strategies. With that in mind, I am here to share some of those strategies with you. I know it can be very difficult to win blackjack, roulette or online slots, so here are some tips to keep in mind.

Roulette strategies

Martingale

One of the top roulette strategies for me is definitely roulette martingale. The idea is to double your bet if you lose with the focus on trying to get past the bad streak. And no matter the outcome, you continually double your bet even if you have up to 6 consecutive losses. Eventually you will win, and when you win you get to go big and recoup the lost money. This is a negative flow strategy and one that I like to use at times. It’s risky by nature, but it can be very rewarding and helpful too. Do keep in mind that some casinos have limits on how much you can bet!

Scobe’s Simple Paroli system

This system is extremely popular among newcomers. The focus is to increase your bet after a win and then continually increase as you win more. This is safer than the Martingale system because you are only increasing bets when you win. It might lead to losses, but when that happens you revert to the original bet.

D’Alembert Roulette Strategy

You can place a wager on red or black and then you increase it by one after a loss and by one after a win. If you have as many wins as you have losses, you should walk away at that point. However if you are on a losing streak, you will need to stay until the number of winnings will be equal to your losses. This strategy is not risky. Instead, you increase your bets incrementally as you win. And if you have lots of losses, you continually decrease your bet. It’s the best of both worlds, and it will give you a very good experience.

Online slots strategies

The One Line strategy

As the name suggests, you rely on a single active pay line. Make sure that you change the number of pay lines so you always have only a single active line. It makes the online slots experience more volatile, true, but you also boost your rewards. You can have 20-30 dead spins with this strategy, but in the end one of them can bring you lots and lots of wins.

Double or Nothing

For the Double or Nothing strategy, you are starting with low-value spins. As you hit a winning combination, you use the Double or Nothing button. The trick is to double up until you lose or when you are happy with your wins. The odds of winning are 50%. You can either lose a lot of money, but you can also win big. Gamble responsibly to avoid any issues.

Deposit bonus strategy

You need a deposit bonus of 200% or even 100% if possible. The wagering requirement needs to be 50 times the max bonus, anything above is not needed. Calculate the expected value, this is the amount of money you deposit and the bonus money, out of which you withdraw the wagering requirement and house edge. Normally you will have a lot of extra money to gamble with based on the bonus. Keep in mind that volatility can make it hard to use this type of method. But if you time it right, it can be amazing.

Slow and steady betting

The Slow and steady betting has the lowest volatility factor. The idea here is to play at a minimum stake until you reach the desired wagering requirement. As the name suggests, this can take a lot of time. However, once you reach the requirement, you can increase your bets. Keep in mind that raising bets will increase volatility.

Blackjack strategies

Double-down on a hard 11

You always end up winning more money when you double down on the hard 11 against the healer upcard instead of hitting. However, if you play a multi-deck game where the dealer stops at 17, you might be better off hitting against him. But other than that, doubling-down is always the way to go.

Double down A-2 through A-7

This is a very good idea if the dealer upcard is 5 or 6. In case the dealer upcard is higher, this method doesn’t work. But more often than not it will bring in great value, and you have to at least test it out. If you play a single deck game, a good idea is to double down on 8 if the de3aler has a 5 or 6 upcard too.

The Surrender strategy

Using the Surrender strategy is a smart approach. When you surrender, you can give up your hand, and you receive half of your stake back. If you feel that there are less than 25% chances of winning, then surrendering the hand will help you lose less money.

Pair Splitting

Pair Splitting lowers the house’s edge, however it can be risky for you as well. It works when the dealer offers a set of two identical cards. You can play them as the doubled value, or you can play as the split value if you want. In case you split, you will need to place another bet (identical to the original bet). Now you will have two different hands and each one has a stake of its own.

I believe you can win any casino game, it all comes down to finding the right winning methods. Some of these strategies might work for you, some of them won’t. But as you can imagine, casino betting is all a matter of perspective, trying new things and actively improving on your own approach. I lost a lot of money trying to find the perfect strategies, but these helped me recoup all of that and so much more. It all comes down to experimenting, seeing what you are comfortable with and then adapting. Yes, it can be time-consuming, but in the end these strategies I shared with you will eventually bring a stellar return on investment!
