I have a fun roulette question
« on: May 01, 2018, 02:24:43 PM »
There are no official stats on this so I guess its more of opinions.

*TRY* and answer honestly. All answers are cool with me.

If we could ask 20+ year, B&M roulette players this >>

How ever many numbers you play today (vs. 20+ years ago), how (if at all) has that changed from 20 years ago?

Meaning, in the beginning, playing 20 (or more) numbers back then and you NOW play only a few.

OR

In the beginning, playing just a few numbers and now, you play 20 (or more) numbers.

OR

Perhaps nothing has really changed over 20+ years?

Of those three, I wonder what those stats would be?

The psychology behind your question is an attempt to resurrect yourself and justify your current status with the game. You disguise it as a fun question.

You can not water down opinions that people have of you by trying to explain how you baked the cake with a fun question. A great Photographer is only as good as his last work.

If you really wanted to do some damage control you would write an essay explaining the reason behind your fun question.

I'm not picking on you; just giving you pointers to a psychological chill pill.

It's a fair question and I can see what Mr J is getting at.

Let me give you an example of two old time regulars at one of my local casinos.

One of them spends all day in there checking out all the wheels and just places a few EC bets here and there.
The second guy has started betting 5 of the double-streets (30 numbers) and using a progression. Both of them mock me saying I am wasting my time doing what I do.

Guy 1 can't leave the casino until 6pm so he can catch his bus home. Guy 2 looks like he is about to have a heart attack with the stress of his new idea when a couple of the double-streets he is not betting on come in a few times in a row.

What does that tell me.....A) They have given up....chosen what they think is the easiest way to make a few bucks. B) They have obviously learned nothing. It might as well be their first casino visit and they have never heard of the game of roulette before.

Myself.....1) No negative progressions. Only up as you win. 2) Play as few numbers as possible. 3) Have enough bankroll so that I can play my game with confidence.

As Mr T would say....'I pity the fools'.

@TheGenner >> thanks for posting!!

@MickyP/RouletteGhost >> a reply but no answer (big surprise).

My own experience. I have been here for years, many days per week. I see the same guys that are long term players. Its odd (?) how they (most of them, not all) play just a few numbers. In fairness, I dont have the nuts to ask them how many numbers they played 20+ years ago BUT I am curious!!

Also, you are playing and a group of buddies buy in. All in their early 20s, probably college guys. We have lots of colleges here in town.

What are they doing (most, not all)? Yep, numbers all over the damn place and/or the ECs. Do I care? No.

Do I laugh? Yes.

Point is, I dont think this is a coincidence!!

Less experienced vs. the 20+ year players.

I started out playing cold numbers, now I only play hot.

I started out with negative progressions.  Now I use positive progression with parachute

Cool answer and thanks! So you have made CHANGES over the years, as it should be.
You did not stay in NEUTRAL.

Quoted from myself >> "I have been here for years, many days per week. I see the same guys".

I meant at the casino itself, not here, the boards.

I started out playing 3 numbers, did so for several years. Then I stepped it up to 9 or 10 numbers which was very successful so I did that for years too. After a while I got bored with doing the same old thing and also wanted to keep trying new ideas, etc. So lately I have been playing a more elastic style, betting anywhere from 3 to 27 numbers in a single session, really mixing it up.

It's not as sure a bet as some of my other methods, but I enjoy the game more this way.
