1. A strap fastened to a horse's girth, passing between his

3. (Gambling) The act of doubling, at each stake, that which
has been lost on the preceding stake; also, the sum so
risked; -- metaphorically derived from the bifurcation of
the martingale of a harness. Called also Martingale strategy
. Such a betting strategy does not change the
overall likelihood of winning, but in a short run it
increases the probability of winning a small sum,
balancing it against an increased probability of losing a
large sum. [Cant] --Thackeray.
