An anti-martingale is a financial strategy, according to which, with each loss, the next bet is halved, and after winning, it is doubled (the odds are equal to two).

Antimartingale is a good tactic to balance costs and benefits and keep yourself from being aggressively chased. It is believed that this strategy is safer, and therefore ideal for beginners.

Indeed, you can make good money on it at the start, but remember that the size of the bet should increase no more than three times (the account continues after the loss). The fourth nesting equals the first, closing the loop and starting it again.

Consider an example:

  1. Better bets 20 units and wins.
  2. The next time he raises to 40, he loses money.
  3. Better bets 20 units and loses again.
  4. Now his bet is 10. This time the player wins.
  5. 20 units – the better wins again.
  6. The cycle is complete: the next bet is 20, just like the first.

As you can see, the strategy does not provide constant profit, but this is not its goal. First of all, anti-martingale helps to avoid unnecessary risk through moderation and repetition. In other words, it does not so much affect the material well-being of the player as it sets him up for rational thinking. Similar techniques are used not only in betting, but also in many other areas, for example, in trading and on financial exchanges.
