in 7step Martingale, you keep doubling your losses till you win or lose 7 in a row. Then start over.
If you win, you're up 1 unit. If you lose all 7, you're down 255 units.

It just hit me you can also do it for wins.

the down side of constant varying your bet if that you're not going to be rated for your play correctly by the pit boss.

What do you think of playing the 7step Martingale for both losing AND winning?

edit:
e-Tables will rate your varying bets correctly.
Are there any Single 0 e-Roulette in the US with european rules?

I am going to try to win 8 in a row on roulette because i was reading a youtube comment and this one guy said, red/black high/low or even/odd one of those 3 bets will go 8 in a row out of 121 spins. so my plan is forget about doubling after a loss. make all 3 of those bets and double the one or two that wins. i think it requires a large bankroll because everyone would be doing it.

I just got access to \$50 match plays, 2 per week. If I get to a 6th or 7th bet in a row that's winning I can get that match play down on the felt. Just can't go broke first. With only 10 bet buy-ins, I may just skip it until I win big on bubble craps first. Or I could just put down a green, double up and then put down the match play and win that.

There are very good roulette games available online in the US. Several online properties in my state offer single zero wheels and one offers la partage. I assume good roulette can be accessed offshore from the US as well.

Instead of Marty, why not just play
128 spins at one unit,
64 spins at two units,
32 spins at four units,
16 spins at eight units,
8 spins at 16 units,
4 spins at 32 units,
2 spins at 64 units, and
1 spin at 128 units?

The variance is almost the same as Marty, but you will not go long periods without placing the 128 unit bet. Since Marty is supposed to be fun, isn't it more fun to be guaranteed a chance to place the big bet every 255 spins? You also have the chance of being way ahead after 255 spins. With Marty, you are never far ahead after 255 spins. You can be way behind.

This Marty analog would be easier for the casino to rate properly.

I never understood why Marty is more fun than just playing the same fraction of bets at the different levels.
