The Weekly Betting Limit (WBL) Strategy
I am about to teach you a strategy that solves one of the biggest problems people have playing Pick 3; being on a tight budget and not having enough money to play.
The strategy I will teach you here will not tell you where to get the money to bet. Rather, it will show you how to make the most out of the few dollars you have to play.
The strategy is called the Weekly Betting Limit (WBL).
This is an excellent strategy for people who are on a tight budget but want to get the most by playing online where a Box hit pays $150 and a Straight Hit pays $900, assuming a $1 bet.
This is the strategy in a nutshell: take the amount you deposit into your online account and divide it by 4.
This is the maximum amount that you can bet in any 7 day period (Sunday thru Saturday).
So if you put in $100, the most you can bet in a week is $25.
Just make sure that all your bets are .25 or .50 cents and bet less than 10 numbers per week, and you will definitely be able to stay within this $25 limit.
This means that you will be able to play for 4 weeks with your one $100 deposit.
That is pretty amazing considering that most people go thru that in a week or two.
What happens if you are SURE that a number will hit but you want to stay within your $25 a week budget limit?
Simple solution; bet a maximum of $1 on the number (.50 cents Box/.50 Straight or $1 Straight) and then go down to the store and put another $1 or $2 on that number.
Just because you have money online does not mean you can’t bet offline; you can do BOTH, especially when you have a super hot number you are pretty sure will hit.
But be careful here; I have learned the hard way that there is NEVER a SURE thing in Pick 3.
By exerting some self discipline here and only betting $1 maximum on any ONE number you prevent yourself from “going crazy” and betting too much money on any one number. (This is how people who run these online betting websites make their money; people putting a lot of money on numbers they think will definitely hit - and then that number NOT hitting. See the article below: ***DANGER***.)
If you are sure that a particular number will hit, play it online for $1 max, and the rest at the store. (You can bet more on a hot number you like IF your Weekly Betting Limit is higher, say $200 or more, which means that your initial deposit would have to be 4X that or $800.)
You will avoid going over your Weekly Betting Limit by being disciplined and only betting $1 maximum on any one number
Keep this in mind: the convenience of online betting is your best friend, but it can also be your worst enemy if you are not self disciplined.
You have to have strict controls in place or else you will see your money disappear fast.
In summary, here are the 3 controls that will maximize any deposit you make into your online account: (1) Divide your initial deposit by 4 and only bet that amount in any 7 day period (Sun thru Sat).
(2) Only bet a maximum of $1 online on any ONE number, no matter how sure you are that it will hit (unless your WBL is $200 or more, than you can bet more than a $1).
(3) In the case of a super hot number you are sure will hit, bet $1 on it online and then play it at the store to avoid going over your Weekly Betting Limit.
Notice that we are placing a limit on how much we can bet online but NOT on how much we can play at the store.
The reason for this is that is very easy to bet online but you will think twice about playing a number when you are taking cold hard cash out of your pocket to play a number.
There is more thought given to a number you play at the store than to a number you play online. (Read that again.)
That is why the limits are placed on how much we spend online, not on how much we spend at the store.
Follow these simple strategies, be disciplined in your approach to the game, and you will maximize every deposit you make into your online account.
