The Piquemouche


The game technique called Piquemouche is another variation of the famous classic martingale.

It is applied during roulette games, preferably when playing simple chance games.

Favour this Piquemouche game strategy if you have a big gambling budget. It is used in case of loss and winning rounds, according to a simple and precise rule we will now study, before illustrating it with a concrete example.

Principle of the Piquemouche

The Piquemouche works in the following way: if the player has a negative result, they will play with the amount of their initial bet three times in a row. The will double their bet only after three consecutive losses.

The advantages of this Piquemouche game strategy lie in its security and caution. Indeed, it does not force you to double your bet as soon as the game starts, but only after three losses in a row. Therefore, it allows you to bet a greater number of times, in order to reach the upper-limit bet fixed by the player earlier.

Conversely, the profits at stake are smaller, and even non-existent in case the first round is lost. Indeed, the player will need 2 consecutive winning rounds to cover their losses, while a single winning round was enough with the classic martingale.

Example of application of the Piquemouche

Here is an illustration of the theoretical aspect of the Piquemouche game technique we just explained.

  • In the first round, the player bets one game unit. If they win, they get 1 unit and can start a new game. However, if they lose they also bet one unit in the second round.
  • In the second round, if they lose they bet one unit for the third round.
  • In the third round, if they win they get 1 unit: 1-1 unit (bet in the second round) - 1 unit (bet in the first round) = -1 unit.
  • In the fourth round, they double their initial stake and therefore bet 2 units. If they win, they get 2 units: 2-1 (result in the third round) = 1 unit.
