I mostly play the dozens and have been doing well with it with my own approach. If I see a dozen that hasnt appeared after 4 times, I place a series of 3 bets. $2, $3, $4. If I dont win those 3 times I stop and look for the next gap of dozens. It is It is not get rich, but Im always ahead after a bit of play. I like the fact I wont ever get wiped out.ed out.
Ive been thinking that if I play the dozens, why not divide the board up further by playing both the dozens & the columns at the same time? Has this been researched? I have just started researching this.
Today I made a simple grid of both the dozens & columns. My grid looks like a tic-tac-toe board.... a 3x3 grid. For example, box one would be the numbers 1,4,7,10.... box two would be 13,16,19,22 and so on. Box nine would 27,30,33,36. I hope this makes sense. If not I can draw it out.
Right now I'm just gathering information on this system idea. So I spin and for now I just mark when a dozen/column box hits. After just 20 spins I can see patterns forming. Some dozen/column combos rarely hit, and some hit often. After hundreds of spins the grid is more honest. Some combos hit & and some dont.
I played around with the ideas in my head... 1000 bankroll. A pattern emerged. box #1 (1,4,7,10) was hitting all the time. I decided to bet on it. How to bet on it I thought? I decided to place two 2 number bets... 1/4 and 7/10. After a few misses I doubled those bets. A couple more misses so I doubled them again. BOOM. I hit some good money. I decided to change strategy on this crazy idea. Now Im betting on the two most popular dozen/column boxes. The martingale doubling brought me up to 1200 units, then dropped me down 300 units and now Im 1900 units.
I have to think about how to protect bankroll by not martingaling. I admit its fun to double my money in 15 minutes
My mind is racing 100 miles an hour right now. You all know what I mean. You have a new idea, it feels like it has potential... this is part of the thrill of roulette!!!
Reality sinks in. I just realized that I was betting on areas that were HOT and hitting often, which is contrary to my typical dozens strategy of waiting for 4 dozens misses in a row. Now Im thinking about employing a bet on the dozens that hit often, not the ones that miss often. My mind says... why would I want to bet on ones that dont hit often? Does it matter? Has my roulette life been spun around??
Going forward there are a few things I want to work on...
- instead of betting on just the boxes I see hitting often, focus on which hit/miss often and in what order.
- reduce or remove martingale & focus on staying in the game
- play both hit often and miss often ways
- incorporate my dozens strategy into the box (dozens/columns) strategy & find the sweet spot on the boxes
