Very interesting discovery. The best odds are gained when in Steps 1 & 5 because 30 numbers are covered. 30 stations have a max loss of 9. So really, the additional weaker steps only hurt this system since they have a combined max loss of 12; there is no advantage to stringing these steps together.

It is very interesting to learn this.

The best of the steps then is Step 5 because it pays out 2 units instead of just 1. The chip layout is also inefficient because 2 chips are allocated to straight up bets when they can be put on splits (double the coverage).

So the updated step 5 is 16 splits, covering 32 numbers and paying out two units per win, -16 on a loss; 0.8648648648648649 chance to win.

These are now the chances of having only 1 sequential loss. This is an improvement.

So really the system can be run from a single step (the best step) and obtain better results.
