Why 35 and not 36 numbers?

There's a

*mathematical curiosity* for having a 36-number layout coverage and yet win +1 unit on a hit:

How can it be?

Targetting

**#19** as the only number to leave open, the bet goes like this:

**3** chips go to number

**0****72** chips to

**low** (Covers

**1 to 18** )

**48** chips to

**3rd dozen** (Covers

**25 to 36**)

**16** chips to

**corner 20/24** (Covers

**20-21-23-24**)

**4** chips to straight-up number

**22**If any number other than 19 is spun, you win +1.

Or you can change the betting location and leave one other number open.

You need a table with "

*Le Partage*" rule for this bet to work.

**Testing the validity of this bet with Roulette Xtreme.**First you need to enable

*Le Partage*:

Then proceed to test the winning bets:

At a straight-up win, we win **4 x 36 = 144** chips, minus **143** chips layed = +1At the corner, we win **16 x 9 = 144 chips**, we lost **143** chips layed = +1At the dozen, we win **48 x 3 = 144 chips**, taking in to account **143** chips layed = +1At the even chance, we win **72 x 2 = 144 chips**, subtracting **143** chips layed = +1If Zero shows up, dealer returns us 108 chips as payout for it, then takes away losing chips: while from the 72 chips layed at

*low* by "

*Le Partage*" rule enabled at the even chances dealer takes 36 and we get 36 chips back. As we won 108 by zero + 36 chips back from low = 144 chips - 143 layed =

**+1** unit profit even when zero hits! Positively letting

*only 1 out of the 37 numbers as a loss*, and winning +1 unit at 36 numbers.

It is important to notice at regular Roulette without Le partage, you have a net loss of 35 chips when zero hits so we really need this Le Partage splitting rule:

Of course, the downside is losing spin costs 143 chips. But for doing that bet your REALLY have to do next spin and want the very least numbers against, this "tricky bet" can do.

Also you can mathematically split all the bets in half to win +0.5 instead of +1... but the problem is the Zero. The dealer won't be too fond of you splitting a chip in two to bet 1 and a half on zero.

A liked trigger is to bet after 2 instances of the same number are spun. But we've all seen 3 in a row.

One other bet selection is to wait for all number to hit exept one and have the odds 36 against 1 sleeping number and be playing cycles.
