I agree. I LOVE how he says,"Increase your bets after a win!" WTF? Increasing your bets after a win is a BAD IDEA. In fact, a woman at the casino told me,"I was winning really well on 30 cent bets on Quick Hits machine, so I upped my bet to Max bet and I lost all the money I had won plus the bankroll I had left in the machine." You should STAY at your current low bet even if you do hit a big win.
Guy "won" less than his bet and the slot machine had the audacity to tell him he got a big win! SMH! Also, the Nintendo cartridge is so much more important than the Nintendo console. Without the cartridge, the Nintendo console is just a useless box.

My problem with it, is that the reader is being told you can "win" with it. You cannot win with a betting system, period.

Well, if you read carefully he doesn't actually say it is a system that beats the house; it touts pressing your bets to win more when you do win, and a lot of gamblers love to do that.

I agree the 888 output includes some pretty dubious stuff and this article in fact does allow you to assume that it is a system that beats the house if you are inclined to take it that way. I think the site owner wants articles like that; you have to wonder how Teliot deals with such, especially if there is a bit of pressure.

Nathan, increasing your bets just means you have put more in action against the house edge, so you can say it is a bad thing generally, but not absolutely. For example, in negative expectation, the player who makes a few large bets and limits time at the machine or table is playing smarter than the player who makes minimum bets but plays for hours.

Other than the title (edit: actually I am so not so sure, it says how can you, not how you can), the actual article alludes to the fact you are gambling on your individual wins. That being said, it does not surprise me Frank Scoblete is penning what amounts to be a puff piece about a betting system.
Assume the worst, believe no one, and make your move only when you are certain that you are unbeatable or have, at worst, exceptionally good odds in your favor.

Exactly. The problem is the title: "How to WIN...."

You CANNOT win with it. I'd expect this coming from a ploppie, not the person that coined the term.

Besides constantly projecting your own on these persons, in my opinion, the worse problem here is turning the world into extremes. When we like every thing about someone, or hate every thing, we are being unrealistic. Very, very few persons are completely very bad or good; and the differences are clear, if not obvious to most. The usual or moderate situation is for Fred to like Bill, except for Bill's tendency to like, get or do something else. Within a grounded forum of originality for community growth.
Believers are the ones who keep at it long after they've been told it can't be done. On the other hand, the real experts shouldn't care about the crackpots. But, if the wrong answer begs the question, then the wrong question begs the answer.

Depends on the game and how it is done

I start my 1st Pai Gow bet at $15-20. If I win my first bet I stay the same bet. Each win after that i add a nickel until I lose my bet and then I start over at the $10-15 level. Less than original bet and start the series over.

If I lose my first bet I make the same bet. When you are winning you are always pulling profit back and getting extra out of a hot streak and losing just losing like you normally would.

Read it again, its actually:
"How Can You Win With the Paroli System [?]"

Which Frank doesn't answer directly himself but the answer is in the long run you can't. (Which I think you are obligated to mention any time you bring up a betting system to people who are new or have little knowledge of gambling.)
