Ya if you like Paroli based strategies this one is a great one for that! It takes Paroli to a whole new level betting money it doesn't even have lol.
Here is an interesting idea that has been forwarded by the same guy that invented D'Alembert Avenue. The concept behind all of his systems is that outside bets pay 1:1 and with the house edge, it makes it impossible to get ahead for a prolonged period.
Instead of the outside bets he advocates inside bets, DS or better to simulate the same percentage. So in other words, if you put one unit on a DS and spin 3 times you have the same percentage chance of hitting as if you had bet red/black odd/even etc. but your payout is 5:3 instead of 1:1 which represents a 66% increase in earnings for the same risk.
Now, the reason I bring this up is because the Masianello is designed for EC bets. Well, what if I played a DS and spun 3 times for each cell and pretended I was always in red or high or low etc. and just followed the progression? I would get a much higher payout, right?
Well I just wanted to document this strategy so I don't forget. ; )
Here are the stats on the various betting types:
EC: 1 spin 1:1
DS: 4 spins 5:4
Quad: 7 spins 8:7
Street: 9 spins 11:9
Split: 13 spins 17:13
Straight Up: 26 spins 35:26
Its kind of weird because you would expect that a double street is 6 numbers and so you spin it 3 times and you get the equivalent coverage and percentage chance as if you spun an EC once but according to the statistics which are compiled by actual wheel results, a true 50% chance doesn't occur until 4 spins and not 3 and a similar difference exists with each of the various bet types. I truly don't have an explanation for this but I will follow the proven statistics over my own thoughts and feelings any day. : )
