Introduction to Fibonacci System in Baccarat
The Fibonacci Strategy is usually used to play a small stake in the game. Apart from Baccarat, this betting system can also be used in Roulette, which is another game of chance. Moreover, the system can be used in any gambling game consisting even bets. Unlike the Martingale strategy, this system does not require a high-bankroll. If this strategy is used by a player, he places the bet on a single unit and the progression starts only when the bet is lost.
This betting system is liked by most baccarat players because of the simple fashion it follows to track the betting amount. Based on the less aggressive approach, it allows the bets to be increased in a manageable way.
This strategy is based on the sequence of numbers which is known as the Fibonacci Sequence. Here is how the Fibonacci sequence follows – 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 and so on, the sequence keeps going forward as required by the player.
If you did not notice the pattern of the sequence, each number present in the sequence is the sum of two numbers before it – 2+1=3, 3+2=5, 8+5=13, 21+13= 34 and so on.
The Working Mechanism of The Fibonacci Baccarat Strategy
Now that you are aware of the strategy basics, let us move on to find more about the strategy mechanics. Each number in the Fibonacci sequence represents the units of bet you have to stake in the coming rounds. A unit demonstrates the betting amount that you need to place on stake, which must be set before placing the bet. So, when you are starting with the strategy, begin betting with 1 unit. According to the experts, the value of the betting unit you set should not represent more than 1% of your total bankroll amount.
In Case of Lost Bet
Let us assume when you begin the game by betting 1 unit, and lost the round, then jump to the next unit in the sequence – 1. If the same outcome appears this time too, move on to the next number which is 2. If it’s your bad day, keep on betting through the list of numbers in the sequence, which is 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 and so on, until a win occurs.
In Case of Won Bet
If it is your lucky day and you bag a winning on the very first number from the sequence, do not move further, but get started with the whole sequence once again and bet with the unit 1. While if you come across a winning in the middle of the sequence, move backwards by two places and reduce your betting amount likewise.
|1||Lost||Bet moved to the next number in the sequence (1)|
|1||Lost||Bet moved to the next number in the sequence (2)|
|2||Lost||Bet moved to the next number in the sequence (3)|
|3||Lost||Bet moved to the next number in the sequence (5)|
|5||Win||Bet will go backwards by two numbers in the sequence (2)|
|2||Win||Bet will go backwards by two numbers in the sequence (1) and the chain is finished.|
In the above table, we have the demonstration of the Fibonacci strategy in the game of baccarat. Here the players with total 6 betting hands lost 4 bets while won 2 bets following the Fibonacci sequence. This strategy forms an even bet since both the lost as well as the winning hands form 7 units (lost hand units – 1+1+2+3 =7 & winning hand units – 5+2 =7).
