Lets not forget guys, a bettor can have a HIGH win rate and still be a loser in the long run. A high win rate means nothing.

Why? On the low lose rate (opposite), what % are you losing that NOW has to be made up from your wins?
I see lots of newer guys bragging about how they have a high win rate method betting 33 numbers every spin.

Well, okay but can we still talk about the other 4-5 numbers that will burn you? Fewer numbers is always best !! No arguing on *MY* thread here please. Lets act like adults as Kav stated.

Usually (not always), a polite post that a person does not agree with, SOME take that as an attack. This whole "attack" definition is quite vexing. Regardless, thank you for the KIND reply.

Back to your post. You have a true, like in sport betting if your avaragr odds is 1,20 he winrate of course is about 90%, must be. If 2,00, like 45-50%. The same in roulette, fewer number to betting, fewer is the winrate, many number, high winrate. But with 4-5 numbers betting its quite impossible to hit exmple I dont know avarage 10% in LONG THERM, or every 10 spin 1 hit. Like in sport betting, non of a tipster can achieve 50% hitrate in LONG THERM (500-1000 tips) with avarage odds of 3.00.

Fewer numbers is always best !!

This right here     Playing lots of numbers is fine as long as its hitting.  But if you have to go into recovery mode, it's a whole lot better to reduce to fewer numbers opposed to steep progressions

"This right here  Playing lots of numbers is fine as long as its hitting.  But if you have to go into recovery mode, it's a whole lot better to reduce to fewer numbers opposed to steep progressions" >> I always call it......peaks & valleys. When betting 3-4 numbers, you have lots of wiggle room for the "valleys".

You should have a decent enough BR in order to bounce back. When betting many numbers (and nothing is hitting for you) there is next to nil in regards to a COME BACK.

You will be done fast and time to head back home. Another benefit, if you have a jerk dealer, you can EASILY get your chips down on time. I see these goofs trying to bet on 30 different numbers, with different chip values in only a few seconds.

I laugh and laugh and I highly root against them. Hoping, the number they MISSED, is the winner. (lol)

Sometimes at live tables, everyone at the table will bet the same number.  If I see a big stack of chips on 1 number, I always have to add to it.  I don't want to be the only one at the table not hit when it comes in

I agree with mr j. Betting on more than about 7 numbers is asking for trouble, I play between 3 & 5. This is especially true if you don't have an edge in your favour. Additionally, I don't see the point of betting the outside or streets, quads, etc. There should be a reason why you bet on each number, but if you bet on a double street or whatever there is seldom a good reason to pick every number in that double street is there?
