When ever we play EC, we are in a risk of facing a longer losing streak. Our progression can sky rocket. Some methods are aggressive like Martingale and some are very slow it needs a very long good winning to recover from a bad and we turn over a lot, sometimes much more than in aggressive play.
We should not allways try to keep our bets down, at least not while checking our bank slowly drain out. The result is the same as a more aggressive betting at the end.
The math and the chance to win, is not much different what ever method we use,
it all depend on the numbers fallen, and we have very little knowledge of that.
Methods which will give a win if we succeed to win about a third of our bets, looks pretty good at the first glance. And it is not bad if and only if it survive some larger unlucky streak. Over time we should with near 50% chance be able to win more than a third.
It will however be situations when it takes a lot of spins, it can stretch to about 200 or more. So our methods have to be able to survive things like 15 loss in a row.
A labby wins with less hits than misses, but our problem is the high stakes which can easy hit the table limit. The same goes for Martingale, which has the strength of solve the session with one hit. Still both will end as losing.
All methods will at a time end losing. Some can delay it enough to be winners for long time, at least for some players.
I sometimes try to combine classical methods (which all are, they are invented with pen and paper not computers)
Lets start as a Labby.
We write down an even number of number one:
1 1 1 1 1 1
We start as a normal labby with two chips.
If win we do as a normal Labby, remove two figures.
1 1 1 1
To try to avoid bet go high due to a
long losing streak we do not add the loss (2) to the end, rather start a new
line using the 2.
1 1 1 1 1 1
If we have finish the first line, we check the second. If it is less figures
than 6 (we have 6 this example), it is a sign of progress. If it has been a very bad run, resulting in more than 6 figures, we move the surplus to a third line using bet sized 4.
2 2 2 2 2 2
We try to finish the line containing the 2 and bet 4 at the time. On any loss we put the 4 in the line we not play, and finish the line of two.
If when start at line with 4 units, we are not bad back if they are less than 6. The same here we use a limit of number in each line, so if the line we not play is more than the starting (6), we have to make a new line with the next step.
As we can see, this is both Martingale and the labby. We should win at the point the session ends, and we have at least won a third of the spins.
I am not sure if I am right on this statement, but it has been true the sessions I have been played. Have been up to 32 units ones, and in 50 sessions won 300 units. I did the play in real money, at a zer0-wheel with chips of a cent.
