Terminology and abbreviations
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:15:54 PM »
Roulette has terminology and abbreviations unique to the game and it is a daunting task especially for a newcomer to the game to understand exactly what is being discussed.

Is there a standard document available on the forum for members and guests to view/download to better understand the roulette language?

There was a thread about this and the names we give just to a DS (Double Street).  The best solution is simply to ask questions.  Soon everything will become second nature. :)

DS can also mean Dealer Signature! lol

So true...lol.

I think it would do the forum justice to have a document like that on the home page. It may attract more members as people are afraid to look stupid by asking simple questions. "Build it and they will come."

Take a look here:

It's by no means complete, but it covers the basics.
This could be a great topic. So bring'em on the Terminology and abbreviations... we are here to shoot

Kav, I think you should add DTOP to your list of abbreviations and definitions. It would be most helpful to new readers.

Well, from what I have gathered, when Dobble runs his random row tests, the DTOP is the point where the system produces a loss in all trials.

So his advice would be to play the specific system and quit the session prior to reaching the DTOP.

It is mentioned somewhere in this forum but I have forgotten what it means or where it is.  :'(

Reference to a double street (DS) has confused many. In Kav's document a double street is referred to as a line bet and the explanation is not very clear.

Kav's document is a good start. Abbreviations should now be added. I'm sure if the roulette language can be standardised discussions will flow a lot better and participation would increase.
Thanks for the input.
