Fibonacci Blackjack Strategy

Fibonacci blackjack strategy is one of the popular betting systems for blackjack that is successfully used in other spheres such us versification, music, design, and biology. The strategy originator – Leonardo Pisano also known as Fibonacci – created the numbers’ series that later was named after him. Fibonacci progression is built in accordance with a special mathematical formula, but not to complicate the explanations we will just state the following: every next number in the Fibonacci progression is the sum of two previous numbers. This progression starts with 1.

E.g. 1+1 = 2 –> 1+2 = 3 –> 2+3 = 5 –> 3+5 = 8 and so on.

Thus we get the following numbers series:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597 …

So, how Fibonacci strategy can be used in blackjack? The process is rather simple and is based on two major rules:

• 1) If you lose the bet, increase the wager size in accordance with progression.
• 2) If you win the bet, remove the last two numbers and continue betting the next number.

Let’s consider the example:
1. You bet 1.
Your bet loses. You follow the first rule and wager the next number in the progression.

2. You bet 1.

3. You bet 2.

4. You bet 3.

5. You bet 5.
Your bet wins. You follow the second rule and remove 5 and 3.

6. You bet 2.

7. You bet 3.
Your bet wins. You follow the second rule and remove 3 and 2.

8. You bet 1.
Your bet wins – the series ends.

If compared to the traditional Martingale system, the Fibonacci strategy is considered to be less risky as the bets size increases more slowly and safe.
