"Flat betting is considered by many in the gambling world as conservative betting. They are right, because flat betting, essentially, is playing it safe. You’re not playing the odds like most other strategies will have you do, but rather you are betting the same amount each time you play. This method of betting can be used with any game you choose to play. Blackjack, roulette, baccarat, sports games…..it doesn’t matter because flat betting is a very simple process. Here are some examples. In blackjack there are ways you can somewhat determine whether you should hit or not based on the cards laid in previous hands. If you do this and you see the odds are in your favor of winning your current hand, you would normally raise your bet. If you bet $10 the last hand, you may want to bet $20 on your current hand. With flat betting you do not do this. You stay with the $10 bet all day, or night, long regardless of the odds.
