Owning a method, or using some methods, is the best way to maintain a good bankroll management, as without it, the chance of failure and consequently losing all your money is quite large. It is not a smart choice to randomly choose any amount from your account to place a bet, without even calculating how much of your wallet is being bet. In possible losses, it is common for the bettor to seek to recover the lost amount by placing a larger volume in the next event, confirming that there is no logical and balanced line being followed. These are actions that we are used to analyzing, and that cause losses for most gamblers.

When using a fixed amount, you will always bet a standard amount, regardless of success or losses on subsequent bets. That is, let's say you start with $1,000 and choose to bet $50.00 on a match. If in the future your bank has $800 (loss in relation to what you started) or $1,300 (has a profit), your staking (amount bet) will always be faithfully the $50 established as standard. It's true that this model becomes a little stuck, as it does not monitor the significant changes that may occur in your funds over time, in addition to providing a little slower growth, but at the same time it gives you security not to compromise your account with bets made on impulse, because you believe that a specific game has greater chances of winning and consequently risk larger amounts.
 
The proportional or variable amount, however, means that the bettor will place a percentage of their funds on each bet, which can logically change a lot, as the total available amount changes. Taking a practical example, it means betting 5% of your bankroll on all bets. Taking the example from the above paragraph, if you start with $1,000, your bet will be the same $50. The difference is that if you have losses and your account is at $800, your bet on the next event will be $40, as it would be $65 if you had $1,300 in your wallet.
 
Although you can clearly see the difference in a practical way, they also have some features that are important to assess, as each player has a specific profile, making it easier to choose which method to use. Proportional betting has the advantage of keeping the bettor out of bankruptcy, even if the account value is negligible. Likewise, in case of successive losing bets, it offers a much slower recovery return compared to fixed amount bets, as it works with a percentage of the current value in the account. If this value is well below the initial, you will need to have patience on our path. If you're looking for quicker returns in the short term, and understand that you have a considerable advantage when analyzing the chances of winning a bet, the fixed amount method can give satisfactory results, although it also poses risks. Regardless of the choice, always seek to find a pattern, as bets taken by emotion and without a foundation of methods whatsoever, will not bring prosperous returns in the long run.
