Blackjack - the martingale system

Anybody tried it? If you lose a hand, you keep doubling the bet and you are eventually back to even because "you won't lose them all." Skim the profit when you win a hand, and only use profits for splits and doubles. What could go wrong?

I do the opposite. Go on a win run and keep the wins out till 4 or 8x your original bet depending on how big your balls are.

Supposedly a buddies friend does it betting on red/black in roulette. Problem is going on a bad run and hitting the table limit.

 Correct. It’s not a system as much as it is a mathematical guarantee. But yes for the guarantee you need no table limits and unlimited funds. You’re better off doing it at a video roulette machine. Best of luck to you if you guess the wrong color 6 or 7 times in a row and don’t forget about the greens!

I once saw a drunken trust fund douche lose about $800 a pop on red/black by going red every time and losing for about 8 times in a row.  I wish he would have been doing this method it would have been glorious.

1. Blackjack doesn't pay 1:1. You're more likely to go on a losing streak than a winning streak. 

2. "Doubling the bet" every time you lose can get out of hand quickly.

Also the "problem" is red/black in roulette are juiced odds. 

This would be an interesting method if you could actually place a 1:1 bet with an exact 50% chance of winning. But, you know, Casinos are into taking your money.
