One of the Best: Labouchere Betting System for Baccarat

Labouchère System

The betting system given below is considered to be a negative progression system, as well as D'Alembert betting system, though sometimes it can be played also as a positive progression one. Anyway, Labouchere betting system is preferably used for the casino game of roulette though it can be perfectly tried also for other casino games, such as baccarat for example.

How to use?

Labouchere betting system is also called cancellation system as its main principle is to cancel numbers from the row which a player draws before a game: this row of numbers can be of different length depending on the game played and the bankroll used. Moreover, this betting system has many different variants; let's give an example of how Labouchere betting system works in general for you to understand the main points of it.


First of all you write down the row of numbers (their values and quantity will depend on the game you've chosen to play). Let's say that your row will be the following:

1 2 3 4 5 6

It is not a rule that all numbers should stay in a row according to their value. For example, the row 1 1 2 5 3 is also fine.

Every number of your row shows the number of the initial bet units you will bet during a game: you add the first and the last numbers of your row and receive the number of units to bet. In our case you will add

1 + 6 = 7. So, if your unit to bet is $2 for example, then you bet $2 X 7 = $14

If you win this bet, you should cross out the first and last numbers of your row (1 and 7 in our example) and your next bet will be the sum of next two (first and last ones) numbers of the row:

2 3 4 5 = 2 + 5 = 7 = $2 x 7 = $14

If you lose your first bet, then you add the number of its units to the end of the row and make your next bet in a following way:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 = 1 + 7 + 8 = $2 x 8 = $16

Positive progression system

Labouchere betting system can be also used as positive progression system, like Parlay or Paroli system for example. The principle here stays the same but you add number to a row if you win and cross out the first and the last numbers of the row when you lose.

For example:

Your numbers row is the following:

1 1 3 5 7

You add 1 + 7 = 8. Your initial bet is $2, so you have the following situation: $2 x 8 = $16 (your first bet). If it wins, your row will be the following:

1 1 3 5 7 8 (you add the number of units that won to your row). But if your bet of $16 loses then you cross out the first and the last numbers from your row and your next scheme to use will be that one:

1 3 5 (1 and 7 are crossed out) = 1 + 5 = 6 = $2 x 6 = $12 = your next bet if you lost the first one.

Labouchere betting system works in such a way that your row of numbers will have only winning bets at the end and, as a result, you'll be a winner!
