Saving Immediately

2 June 2024

CINDY: I think the worst thing for casino players is to go home losing all the money you intended to play with. We know that many times we will lose but losing it all can be somewhat tragic. That’s like being fired upon by the firing squad.

ABBY: I know, I know. I do bring enough money to enable me to play for a somewhat long time but I hate the times I have gone home – can I use this term? – broke? It hasn’t happened a lot but when it does – it’s just awful.

CINDY: If you are a regular casino player you can use that term. We all know you are talking about playing money, not money for you grand-daughter’s braces. Losing is a part of the experience after all.

ABBY: Now, we have both brought in a new way to play our money to avoid the going home “broke” syndrome and for me it works quite well.

CINDY: Here is the outline of the method – I guess it is called a money-management method.

ABBY: Bring about one-third more money than you usually play with. If you usually bring $2,000, then bring $3,000. You only play games or bets within games that are ultra conservative, such as pass-line and come bets at craps, more in odds than what’s on the line, or roulette even-money bets at a full or crowded table, or blackjack at a full or nearly full table.

CINDY: Keep your betting at your normal levels. Do not fall into the trap to bet more because you brought more with you.

ABBY: Let’s look at the even-money bets in roulette. We’re using the American double-zero wheel (0, 00). You have 18 ways to win on an even-money bet and 20 ways to lose or 9 wins and 10 losses. The house edge on this game is 5.26 percent.

CINDY: You bet red and win. Say, you bet $10 and win $10. You take that $20, half win, half initial bet, and put it aside. You are not going to touch that money. It is in a permanent bank.

ABBY: Hands off!

CINDY: You now make your next bet. It wins. You do the same thing. You bank the initial bet and the win, and you continue to play.

ABBY: Every win is a banking moment. Now with losses, you handle them somewhat differently. When you lose three in a row, you stop making bets for two decisions. That’s right. You take a two-decision break from playing.

CINDY: Here’s where your inner strength comes in to play. It doesn’t matter if your previous two bets would have won on the one or two non-decision plays for you. That is irrelevant. The game is random. Remember that. Roulette is a random game and has no inner meaning about you or for you.

ABBY: Now you continue to play. You’ve won two bets and lost three. You give yourself two bets, $10 each. If you win one or both of these, you bank that but continue play. But three losses in a row means you sit out two decisions.

CINDY: This is the method.

ABBY: Now, the final thing is when do you take a break from a session? That is important too.

CINDY: You lost three in a row, took a break for two decisions, now you jump in and lose two in a row. That’s it for this session. Win or lose, you take a break; a walk, a meal, a nap, a show, whatever. You give yourself at least an hour (if not more) before you play again.

ABBY: You do not play more than four sessions in a day. Oh, and the bank, is never touched. You will always have that money to take home with you.

CINDY: Obviously, you will have to adapt this to your level of betting and so forth.

ABBY: We think this is a sane method of play.

CINDY: We will cover more next week.
