The rising Grand martingale

The rising Grand martingale is a game strategy that is frequently used by players who favour casino roulettes.

It is used with bets that concern simple chances.

As is the case with all martingales, the rising Grand martingale is applied as soon as the player loses a bet. This game technique gives you the impression to increase your chances to win while strictly respecting the rules of the game of roulette and its variations.

Principle of the rising Grand martingale

The principle of the the rising Grand martingale is very close to that of the the classic martingale.

After each loss on a simple chance, the player doubles their bet and adds a game unit. They repeat these steps until they win.

This is the most famous rising martingale used after losses, but also the most risky. Indeed, it is more dangerous than the classic martingale, but if it is successful and leads to a victory, it can quickly increase the player's profits.

In order for the rising Grand martingale to be profitable, the player must be able to double their bet every time, thus risking to lose everything.

The drawback of this game strategy applied on lost bets is that it can't be applied on an unlimited number of bets, which would allow it to be truly profitable.

In the reality of the game, the player is limited by the number of bets they are able to place. Therefore, the efficiency of the rising Grand martingale loses its power when moving from theory to practice. Moreover, it is worth mentioning that when applying these game tactics, the profits are small in comparison to the bets placed.

Let's illustrate the rising Grand martingale with an example of a roulette game, in order for you to better understand this very popular game strategy.

Example of application of the rising Grand martingale

The player places a first bet of one unit.

  • First scenario: they win. By applying the rising Grand martingale, they win one unit, which is added to the initial bet of one unit. The player therefore has two units.
  • Second scenario: they lose. The player then decides to play three units during the second round, according to the principle of the rising martingale, which requires that you double your bet and add one unit.
  • If they win: they get the equivalent of twice their bet, i.e. 6 units, from which they must deduct the 3 units they bet during the second round, as well as the unit they bet in the first round. Therefore, they win 6-3-1= 2 units.
  • Third scenario: they lose once again and bet for a third round. They double their bet and add one unit, following the principle of the rising Grand martingale: they bet 7 units.

If they win this round, they get 14 units – 7 units (bet in the third round) – 3 units (from the second round) – 1 unit (from the first round), which leads to a profit of 3 units.
