The Oscar Grind strategy is quite famous system for gambling. The strategy is widely used by roulette fans, betters and craps fans. Betting according to certain progression is at the very core of the system. The strategy is called Oscar Grind because of one gambler. According to legends, Oscar Grind was extremely successful roulette fan who made good money in the middle of 50-s of XX century. But nobody knows if Oscar Grind is the real person or fictional person.
This strategy is quite unique. It allows players to make small profit. Therefore the system has got its own limits and suitable for low stakes. In theory you cannot lose using this strategy. But we would like to warn you that there is no guaranteed winning strategy for roulette. Thus we don’t recommend you to rely on the Oscar Grind strategy.
The main idea of this strategy is to make profit equal to 1 initial bet. The best way to have a closer look at this interesting system is to analyze the following example:
We start playing with 1 coin bet. If we win we should increase our bet by one and if we lose we should place our starting bet (1 coin). This strategy is suitable if you play even money bets (red/black, odds/even etc.). Thus the multiplier will be 2.0. Experts say that you need to have bankroll as big as 8bets to use this system effectively. This means that we need to have $8if we bet $1 each round. Ok, we start playing with $1 bet. Let’s assume that we have won. Ok, great, we have reached our goal and made a small profit. In this case we should start playing new cycle from the beginning.
In case of losing we should place the same bet like we had in previous round. And when we win we should increase our bet by one. So, the main idea of the Oscar Grind strategy has got 2 main rules:
- increase bet if you have won
- stick to previous bet if you have lost.
The strategy is quite simple. Just have a closer look at this table to understand the algorithm:
|Round||Your bet||Outcome||Total Balance|
As you can see from our table you need to win several consecutive rounds to finish with a small profit. Surely it might take you 10-20 rounds of play.
We have already noticed that this strategy seems to be pretty stable and potentially profitable. But you should remember about limits set by casinos. Thus if you face unsuccessful streak losing dozens of times in a row you might lose all your money. You can just reach limits set by a casino. But still this strategy is extremely good for conservative players who prefer small stakes. Stick to the Oscar Grind system and you will be able to stay in the game as long as possible. You might also take home some cash.
