Every bet has the same 2.7% edge house edge working against them, no matter what you play. But are some bets better than others?

I believe betting fewer numbers have an advantage over more numbers. If you take zeros out of the equation, you should hit 1 number for every 36 numbers bet (on average)

Let's look at 2 scenerios for playing 36 numbers

1. Bet $18 on an even bet for 2 spins. Total wager $36. Total numbers played 36

2. Bet $1 on 4 numbers for 9 spins. Total wager $36. Total numbers played 36.

Both bets cover the same amount of numbers for the same amount of money. BUT, if you go with #1, then your maximum amount you can win is $36 if you win both bets. If you go with #2, then you can win $36 if you win 2 bets....BUT you have the maximum earning potential of $288!

Another advantage of betting less numbers is the progressions are less painful. Your average unit size from #1 is $18, while #2 is only $4

Personally, I like to start out with more and reduce to less. Playing few numbers like 3-5, you will eventually cross that sequence hitting 3-5 numbers in one sequence and progression don't get out of control. Of course, picking the right numbers always helps
