The Fibonacci Baccarat Strategy, Martingale Strategy and the D’Alembert Strategy collectively represent the some of the more common betting systems for new Baccarat players. The Fibonacci Baccarat system is based on the Fibonacci sequence, which is a series of numbers derived by adding the prior two numbers in the sequence together. The Fibonacci sequence was developed in 1202 by an Italian mathematician named Leonardo of Pisa, also known as Fibonacci. Generally, Baccarat players like this system because of its simplistic approach to tracking bet amounts. Note: This system was designed to work on any game of chance that has two equal possible outcomes.
The Fibonacci Baccarat Strategy Progression
Before we begin looking at how we can implement the Fibonacci Baccarat system, let’s put the sequence out there for a better understanding of what we are dealing with. The Fibonacci sequence: 1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21-34-55-89
If we take each progressive number in the sequence, we can clearly see that the number is the sum of two digits that proceed it. Using this system, all we have to do is decide how much to use as our standard betting unit. For the purposes of our example, we will use $1 as our betting unit.
Before we lay out an actual betting sequence, let’s discuss the basic financial goal behind the Fibonacci Baccarat strategy. The main objective is to cover our losses from losing hands by eventually breaking even. By doing this, we can build profits by winning the first hand of a sequence. The process requires a lot of patience as we try to grind out a profit. As long as we don’t encounter a ridiculous losing streak, we do have a chance of making a profit.
Here’s how the system works. The player places a bet. If they lose, they move to the next place in the sequence. If they win, they drop back two places in the sequence. If they are sitting in the second spot, they only drop back one place. If they are in the first place, they stay and start a new betting sequence. Here’s an example. Remember, each betting unit is $1.
Bet #1 – $1 wagered – lose – -$1
Bet #2 – $1 wagered – lose – -$2
Bet #3 – $2 wagered – lose – -$4
Bet #4 – $3 wagered – win – -$1
Bet #5 – $1 wagered – lose – -$2
Bet $6 – $2 wagered – win – $0
Bet #7 – $1 wagered – win – +$1 sequence over, begin a new one
Risk of using the Fibonacci Baccarat System
Before we discuss the risk associated with Fibonacci Baccarat strategy, we need to make one clarification. Man has not yet developed a betting system or strategy that offsets the house’s built in advantage. When players place bets on the banker or player’s spots in Baccarat, the house’s advantage is 1.06%.
The only true risk associated with this particular betting system is a long series of losses could wipe out our bankroll. If our bankroll is $300, we can keep going until we lose 11 in a row if our betting unit is $1. A larger betting unit shortens our ride.
