Question about a miss during the cycle:

So let's say that my base unit is 5 and I get a hit on spin 26.

Based on the calculation 36-26=10 spins remaining,
and 36x5=180,
180/10=18 added to the base bet of 5 gives a total of 23 for our new bet for the remaining 10 spins.

So my question is if I don't get a hit by the end of the cycle (next 10 spins), do I continue betting 23 units?
Or do I go back to the original bet of 5 units?

Well, the only reason we are raising our bets is because the hit has paid us profit and we are re-investing that profit.  So once the profit is exhausted with the 35 spins, we must go back to our base bet. 

Also I would recommend checking your calculations versus reality with your bank balance and investigate discounting and other such options.

Even though BOOM! is a VERY powerful earner, its also very expensive (when you keep chucking profit out the window and you are still paying for spins) and not the very most common event either.  I think that great care is required to make it practical for real money play.

I like positive progressions much better than negative ones.  Bigger wins, the initial bet doesn't have to be as puny as it does with an up as you lose, and there's more excitement!

I'm still sort of new here, so I can't be sure - but I'm detecting a bit of sarcasm, perhaps?

I'm not being sarcastic.  I'm serious when I say that an up as you win progression is better than an up as you lose when you're gambling.

1. The initial bet can be higher.
2. You will typically experience larger wins if you win.
3. You're often risking a smaller percentage of your actual bankroll and more of the casino's money when you are winning.  (You can theoretically win a lot with very little money.)
4. A fun example is the reverse Labby.

Probably the best strategy here is to play the hottest SU number on the board.  The LotT MUST produce a hottest number that will exceed the rest in hits:spins because the felt & sequence length are always closed circuits.
