Very interesting information & research Dobbelsteen, thank you.
I agree with you of working small batches at a time. There is much more realism when spinning the wheel 250x as opposed to running a computer for 1,000,000 spins. I am not sitting down at a table for one million spins at a time. I will play for an hour or two and then I am done for the day and for me, statistics begin anew the next time.
I've mentioned in the past that I have studied 500,000 spins (live roulette), but of course you don't need that many spins to play a session. The only reason I studied that many spins is to confirm several hypotheses
. For example, the fact that a dozen or column does not exceed 28 consecutive spins that can go missing, or the fact that it's extremely rare to see 18 Reds or any EC in a row, or 3 corner bets (12 numbers), cannot go missing for more than 35 spins and other interesting observations that I can use to build a system. The end result is the reassurance of knowing that some things simply cannot happen
, or if they do it's extremely RARE and it's unlikely that you are going to see them any time soon. Because when I first started with roulette, players were telling me that they saw 40 black in a row, or a dozen missing 60 spins, or 10 numbers missing for 100 spins and a bunch of other nonsense.
So if I didn't see these rare scenarios in 500,000 spins, definitely I'm not gonna see them in 50 or 100 or 200 spins. It was a matter of reassurance and nothing else
. And it has nothing to do how many spins you need to see before you start your system.
