##### Most Numbers Played with Least Units
« on: March 08, 2018, 07:17:17 PM »
What is the most numbers that can be played with the least amount of units?  Oh, and every number bet has to produce a profit (Not just break even)

Most Numbers with 1 unit?  2 units? 3 units?

The Even bets. No other bet offers best unit/numbers ratio.

Dr. Talos has taught us that as our debt rises, it is more economical (less money outlay) to play less numbers; i.e. move inward on the felt to a DZ etc.

Kav, that's what I was thinking too. I remember you posting once all bets that have 50% odds.  Ex:  if I were betting 4 numbers, how many spins would it take to make this a 50/50 bet.  I was searching for this earlier, but couldn't find it.

Reyth, I thought I remembered Talos saying somewhere that the amount of numbers he bets increases on losses and decreases on winnings.  Maybe I have it mixed up

But I agree with you.  This is how I always play.  Using a combination of gradually decreasing amount of numbers played, as well as small increases in wager.  Good for keeping the bankroll in check, and catching that eventual cluster of wins to profit.  Once at profit, I revert back to playing more numbers

Yes Scarface this something Bayes introduced I think and we analyzed it. Can't find it right now. But maybe with a little search.

I believe it was called something like "binomial distribution"...

So here I think you could calculate for 50% or whatever you desired...

"Parachute" type progressions capture the [decreasing coverage / increasing payout] scheme quite well...

Even Chances [1:1] > Dozens (and/or Columns) [2:1] > Double Streets [5:1] > Quads [8:1] > Streets [11:1] > Splits [17:1] > Straight Up's [35:1].

each location has 50% probability hitting within following attempts ...

ec 1 attempt
dozen 2 attmpts
line 4 attempts
corner 6 attempts
streets 8 attempts
split 12 attempts
single number 25 attempts

but you can get current variance and probability using the skip strike method for measuring
post it and you have to search forum for it

Cheers

That should be easy to remember.  They all equal 24 numbers, except for the first ec bet.
