Kav, great start to a very important topic. Rinad, has a clear term to describe his observations with " gate " , very visual.
This is a clear and provable statistical topic.
One of my bread and butter plays on a daily basis and can be entered at any time is what I call ....
THE BOUND 2 and BEYOND. All of my data is based on a study across dozens of casinos spanning five decades, from all over the world. I have used sessions data that average 250 spins at a session. What I have found is so CONSISTANT, that you can set your watch to it. For example....
For the sake of explanation, I call a " bound" event somethings that stops at a certain number of times, so...
A BOUND 2 = r,r or b,b,. Using just this event, you can count on an average of 29 of these in 250 spins.
Yes I have seen as few as 19, which is rare, and as many as 40, also rare, but right around 25 to 30 is where I hang my hat. MORE IMPORTANTLY, you will witness that finding a condition where they do not appear to break up anything larger than an event of 3 and larger is very, very, rare. (7) is a long sleeping event. (Average appearance is after 3 to 4 times)
An example= rrrr b r bbbbb rrr b r bbb ( rr ) b r b rrrr ( bb).
Here you see that four series of BEYOND 3 occurred and was then broken by a BOUND 2.
I have CRAFTED my score sheets to take advantage of these events and have learned to hedge the,
BOUND 2, against the BOUND 3, AND the BOUND 3 AND BEYOND.
The BOUND 3 and BEYOND, puts you in all runs, and keeps you there winning, until they break.
This method of play is very safe and very profitable, when combined with virtual bets for entry and a very simple DIVISOR. I can not tell you the last time it has lost. Like all methods, it takes practice and patience to get it going.
I start at 10$ units, and use a very flat bet method, in series play. The entire style of this play revolves around a five hour session of 250 spins, on live dealer rapid roulette, found in just about every casino in the U.S.. I also will play it on a TALOS style inter block ORGANIX roulette machine.
Any new player can start with lower stakes, say 3$ units and win an easy 40 to 50$ an hour, with very little angst.
I combine this play with other methods at the same time, but that is another topic all together.
I also have a method where I incorporate a single parlay, after certain events within my divisor.
I should also mention that I use a " BEST OF" series style of play.
This topic has made me very happy to contribute to. I look forward to reading others experience on the topic!
