What was the worst betting system that you have ever come across that someone else swore by and honestly believed in?

I belive i would say all of them as they are the same with negative expectation - no difference at all.
Is a jungel of variations - but it boils down to the same thing - there is no positive expectaion.
AP - It's not that it can't be done, but rather people don't really have a clue as to the level of fanaticism and outright obsession that it takes to be successful, let alone get to the level where you can take money out of the casinos on a regular basis. Out of 1,000 people that earnestly try, maybe only one will make it.

I'd vote for sitting at 3rd Base in BJ and making the wrong play "so the dealer busts."

AJ is right in that all systems have the same expectation in that it comes down to dollars bet * expected value. But I find this worse since you willingly give up a better play.

The only bigger waste of time is trying to convince someone that plays this way how silly it is.

I guess the worst, or at least the most insidious, is the Martingale because it's easy to apply and simple to remember.

I once had an incredible run of luck on a quarter single line slot - No big wins, but continually hitting $50 up to $200. Played it for about an hour and people around me began to watch. When I cashed out, one woman asked me what time my run had started since "they set these to pay out the same time each day"!!!! She wanted to be sure she was on this machine the next day at the "right time".

For sure the Martingale (doubling your bet when you've lost). Every gambler will stumble upon it some time. The tricky thing about the Martingale is that it seems to work. The first sessions at roulette where I used this system were always winning ones. You get the feeling that you're invincible. Until the day comes that black hits 15 times in a row and you're run out of money...

All betting systems are equally worthless.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Googled worst betting system and found a site saying the Martingale was and it explained why in great detail.
And then it had this to say LOL
Roulette Systems

The following is an advertisement

If you're like me, you're probably reading this article because you enjoy playing roulette. Roulette is primarily a game of chance. When you employ certain strategies to the roulette wheel, you can increase your odds of winning dramatically - and everybody wants to win.

As I was scouring the Internet looking for a winning roulette strategy I came across a piece of software called Roulette Sniper. I installed the 60 minute trial version that the Roulette Sniper website gives you and tried it out. I couldn't believe how accurately, just the trial version was predicting where I should bet. Within the first 10 minutes I won enough money to actually pay for the Roulette Sniper software.

Now I've been using Roulette Sniper for the last a couple months and I think it is one of the most valuable tools out there for winning at roulette. I'm not going to show you the income that I earn using Roulette Sniper, but I am going to tell you that works.

Some basic tips that I recommend with Roulette Sniper is to use conservative settings, but increase the low/high numbers by about five points. Depending on what casinos you play at, this may decrease the number of betting opportunities you get but will increase the amount of winnings you get, so it is best to choose a casino where you can disable the animation.

Like always use wise money management strategies when gambling at the casinos and you will prosper and walk away wealthy.

If you want to give Roulette Sniper a try, go to the website here and sign up for the trial version.

Some guy playing craps at the Western who has some weird hedge system involving the Don't Pass, Any Seven, and Crap Checks -- he has the worst betting system in the world.
