Well a biased number IS a hot number (or hot numbers); if it wasn't then there would be no advantage to betting it. The difference is that a true AP player can take data from a wheel during a particular month and then come back another month and find the same results.

Does that mean system players can derive no advantage from playing hot numbers?

Roulette will always provide groupings of hot numbers that extend over an entire spin sequence and I believe that being in touch with these guaranteed numbers is a very important part of any roulette system (i.e. bet selection).

Furthermore, I think system players can have this in common with AP players where it is even possible for a certain "blurring of the lines" where we can get common reads with AP players because we are both looking for the same thing -- numbers that consistently repeat. I have watched this phenomenon persist for many thousands of spins (the same numbers) and there is no way it could be physical bias because I play RNG.

There MUST be bias in random sequences. It is simply a statistical fact. A perfectly balanced random sequence is on the order of impossible, increasing in improbability the longer the sequence extends.

There is a certain "statistical momentum" where the longer a group of numbers are biased, the more likely it is that they will remain so and there must always be numbers that remain so. The more numbers get ahead, the more likely it is that they will stay ahead.

If I was to try and give it a new name I would call it:

**LotT**^{x}

Where "x" is the length of the sequence.
