    The only way I know of getting comped is to lose a ton.. Or win a ton. Casinos love people coming to the roulette wheel using that system. Just dump 30K you will get a free room and meal.. Maybe a bottle of booze..

    If you want to get comped quicker, chat up the dealer, the players, the pit boss and have fun. People who inspire a carefree attitude in a casino get comped faster than those who advertise they are playing a system and serious about it, even if the system is as ill-advised as Martingale.

    Martingale works in theory. As already stated though, you may end up making huge bets to make a very small profit. There is always the chance that you go broke before you can double that next bet and now you have lost massive amounts of money to try and win $1. Further, most tables have maximums so that you can't employ Martingale successfully. Even if they released the maximums, you may still run out of money and the casino will not.

    There is not a system that can be adapted to roulette to make money over the long run. It doesn't exist.

    The martingale system is a betting patern, it is in no way illegal. The martingale system will not help you to win money in the long term, it will only manipulate the odds of a "net win" for a series of trials to be more frequent. Eventually you WILL experience a tremendous loss due to increasing your bets exponentially and it will wipe out all of your winnings, and then some. If you are currently winning money, i suggest you consider yourself, lucky and stick only to the minimum bets from here on out or stop playing all together.

    WHY do you think these casinos give away suites and other perks to gamblers? Because they know that you will have to pay them MANY times more than the value of that perk.

    So you want a suite? That's probably $500 per night to stay in a suite. (Just guessing - maybe it's much more.) You would need to be wagering 10's of thousands of dollars to get that.

    Long story short - If you want a suite, just pay $500 for a suite. It'll be WAY, WAY cheaper!

    Here's the strange thing - I see the answer you gave to a similar question. (Link below.) You KNOW that the Martingale system is going to ultimately make you broke. Why would you still consider using it?

    Try to beat roulette at your peril.

    Comps are usually calculated as a function of your average bet and time spent at the tables. Casino employees (mostly hosts) have the power to estimate what you're going to spend before you play, and comp you accordingly. It sounds like this is what you're asking for.

    If you want big time comps, you either must start with a high bet (i.e., like $100 instead of the table minimum) or assure the host that you are willing to go very high with your bets and have the bankroll to take it to the at or near the table max. So you could start with a $5 minimum bet, but still get comped all the good stuff if the host knew you had $5,000 to take it to the table limit in your pocket because your "average" bet will actually be very high.

    EDIT: Lol at the moron who gave a down arrow for the right answer. Sorry I offended you by not acting like his mother and telling him not to gamble like other people on here.

    $1 You won't get comps until you play for an extended period of time. You will get all of the comps they have to offer, because you will get wiped out! Once that $1 loses 10 times in a row, you will be out $1023. Then you will be faced with a wager of $1024 trying to chase that huge $1 profit, but you will have to change tables because you will be above the table max. Good luck with that.

    Let's say a casino is willing to comp you a suite and food if you lose $5,000. It doesn't matter how much you wager to lose that $5,000. Save time and bet $5,000 and let it ride until you lose. If you try to lose $5,000 by getting $10 per spin then it will take more time to get that free suite and food.

    As pdq said if you want a suite then pay for it. It will be a lot cheaper.

    You could save a lot of money and just buy a suite for the night and food and other stuff. rather then putting down 10times more money to try and win them.

    It is not a system, it is just nonsense.
