I hope I can clarify the system I use...
-I do not bet on individual numbers.
-I bet on the dozens columns of 1st 12, 2nd 12 or 3rd 12.
-I place a 1 unit bet on each red & black, thus cancelling out each play waiting to place a bet on a dozens column.
-I then monitor each set of dozens by writing a 1, 2 or 3 on paper correlated to the first, second or third dozen that gets hit. If #13 is hit, I write a 2, if #35 is hit I write a 3. My score sheet looks like 1323123111213123231 etc, etc.
-If i notice a particular dozen missing 4 times in a row, I then begin a 4 step progression on that dozen column.
-On the 5th spin I place a bet of 3, then 4, then 6, then 9. If I havent hit my dozens column by then, thats it, I no longer bet at all on that dozen column.
-Once in a while I will bet on two columns at the same time.
In the image below I noticed the 2nd dozens column was missed 4 times starting at RED 14. My score sheet looks like 223133(begin betting)32(win).
Ive been playing around with dozens columns for a while using Loothog for help on max misses in a row. 26x seems the very max, but once it hit 31x. In real play Ive seen it go 26x. I used to begin my progressions after the 8th miss and had some luck for a while. I decided to try beginning a 16 step betting progression after the 8th dozens miss and I did well, but didnt bet too often and the one time it went to 26x it wrecked me
With that said, I no longer want to do a massive 16 step progression. Theres got to be a better way. Theres a sweet spot on each table.... Ive noticed on different sites and in Vegas (NYNY casino) that the sweet spot was somewhere around the 5th or 6th miss. Thus my new way of playing is a 4 step progression after the 4th miss.
Ive played another 500 spins this morning and never have I had two progression failures in a row! Thats exciting news IMO. With that info you can be conservative and just stick with the simple 3,4,6,9 progression or increase it a bit to 6,9,13,20 progression.
-If I start out with 1000 units, I will never get destroyed with this system.
-Ive never dropped below 990 at any time after an hour of play.
-Ive gone up 90 units a few times now.
My goal is simple. Im not trying to get rich. Im in Los Angeles, about a 3 hour drive to Vegas. I would love to have a system where I can bring $1000 USD to the casino and play for a few hours and have the winnings cover my entire stay. Gasoline, food and hotel. Winning $90 here, $50 there and so on will do just that.
