Your examples don't suggest to me Martingaling. Do you mean that if you would lose a dollar, next time two dollars is bet, then four dollars, etc? If so you don't get 170 rolls for $170 etc.
You could 'hit it twice' if you get lucky, you wouldn't want 'the probabilities to play out'
Sounds like a pseudo-Martingale - bet 1 until the total amount lost is less than what would be won on the next bet of 1, then bet 2 until the losses again exceed the value of a win, then (presumably, in this case) bet 3, and so on.
