The odds is 50653 of four number will show in a row.I see it about a few times a year. Three times every week.

It is 1.8 million only if we talk of a specific number not any number.  Any number one time is 100% probability and the we must count only three times. 37 x 37 x 37.

The true odds for the side bet is 50653 as we must beforehand say it is zero 37 x 37 x 37.

Hmmm, maybe you do too much testing :-)
Really, RNG can produce some "interesting" results for sure.

Jesper is right. The probability is one in 50653. You have to watch so many 4-spin sequences to  catch such a result. In total 202.612 spins

I play roulette for a very long time now, over 21 years, And i saw 5 in a row once in all those years of playing roulette. this wasn't RNG, this was at a real casino, it were 5 x number one's. that was a crazy night at the roulette table. I remember that everybody gone nuts.
But never again i saw this. and i saw only 2 times 4 of the same numbers pop up, but that's about it. but hey there is one roulette  quote i always keep in my mind when i play this game;  even it's a 0.00000001% change. WHAT CAN HAPPEN, WILL HAPPEN!

The funny is that a number series like 1,2,3,4  0r any four numbers have the same probability 50653 or 1.8 million depending on how we count the first, so we will be chocked every 4th spin.

I remember once one said incredible I saw a car with license number   JPD415 on the parking place, what is the odds for that? Among 4 million cars in the radius of 1000 km.
