##### The table limits!

I hear often, and see in different fora, people believe the maxbet is created to stop Martingalers. I think that is not the case. The table limit is to protect the bank from a lucky hi-roller, who can put a large amount on the table, and maybe parlay it, and as the casino must have money to pay the winner, they put maxbet as protection for high stake winners.

We know a martingal player do not win much, he use to start with the min bet, and double up until he wins.

The bank owns the martingale player the first small bet, and when he wins he get that amount. The martingaler
finance the bank, every time he has a loss, he pay more and more to the bank, and at the end if he wins, it is just the starting bet. Even if he start with 1000 Euro and turn over millions it is the player feeding the bank, and the bank needs only 1000 Euro to stand the attack.

I mostly agree with you.

This what you mean, right?

Being protected by a martingale loving high roller is an added benefit, probably not the main reason.

Casinos love high rollers as all will not win.  The table limit protect the casino from such events as somebody bet small and let it ride, and it is possible it will work until astronomic height. If at the time in Montecarlo they did not bet the opposite when over 50 blacks show up, it should  be a sum which were more than all the money in the world if somebody with the minbet let it ride for about 48 steps..
