In craps, a progressive betting method can actually work. This is because the frequency of wins is much greater than what you might find at roulette. The best progressive betting method is the Fibonacci method. Instead of doubling your bets after each loss, you bet according to the golden mean sequence. It goes like this: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 35, 89, 144, 233…. The pattern is that each number is the sum of the two numbers preceding it.

The sums don’t increase as fast as when you double each time, which keeps you under the table limit long enough to score a win and recoup your losses. This only works in craps, however. Do no try it anywhere else in the casino.
