Let me preface this article by stating that I do NOT recommend betting the Field. But if you’re GOING to bet the Field then let’s take a somewhat sensible approach and use a mathematical approach that at least gives you some chance of winning without going full blown Grand Martingale.
The Six Step Fibo-Field strategy is based on the Fibonacci progression of 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 31 – 44 – and it continues on ad nauseum. If each bet represented one unit and you were in a $10 game you’d simply add a zero to each of the above numbers to get the correct wager size.
The Fibonacci progression is used primarily on Flat Bets, although I’ll confess to using it on Free Odds bets on the Don’ts from time to time. On each loss you proceed to the next step in the progression to determine your next bet size. On any win lock up your winnings and tell the dealer “Same Bet.” If won, start the series over again at one unit.
The idea is to score two consecutive wins before starting the series over. If the second bet after a win is lost, continue to the next step level in the progression. You may wager on any flat bet, and may alternate between flat bets if you wish. It does not matter whether you bet on the Pass or Don’t Pass or, in this case, the Field.
For this example I’ve set the progression up for a $15 table. We limit ourselves to SIX consecutive losses. If you lose six in a row – it’s time to go. Period. That’s why we set this up as a six-step progression. That’s where your session ends.
Progression for a $15 table
$15 – $15 – $25 – $35 – $60 – $100
Total bankroll required for series – $250
Although it’s purely “due number theory,” I suggest charting a table for a shooter who is tossing Field numbers before jumping in with this strategy. A six and eight shooter will end your session quickly. Even so, you may want to “time” your entry into the game by watching for two to three consecutive non-Field numbers rolling before throwing in your first Field bet. Yes, this is going “against the trend.” But at the end of the day – this is pure gambling – not advantage play in any way.
The other option is if you or a friend of yours is a dice influencer skilled at tossing Field numbers while avoiding the five, six and eight then you might actually turn this into an advantage play – particularly in some markets where the Native American casinos pay triple on both the two and the twelve in the Field – effectively negating the house edge on the Field Bet. But that’s a rare beast indeed.
