Many times I have repeated that MB 16 is not a winning bet. It is a tool. It is a useful tool to read the game. When the bet as I play it is in a win cycle it is a strong signal that 16 numbers are in resonance, and several of these are Zero section on the European Wheel, and also that the middle column is dominant. All the MB 16 bets are connected with the mid column.
I often play live these days, daily when in town, at the boutique casino in Christchurch. It is a very well managed affair and as with all successful business the values come from the top with the MD often seen talking with staff around the casino, at all levels from cleaners to personal assistants. He has a fine track record that MD and has seen this business navigate the tough business conditions 6 years after the earthquakes and provides a safe friendly ( and potentially expensive but opportune) environment for all.
In Christchurch because of proximity to Antarctica we have many US scientific personnel in town who often have short breaks before heading south. Last night I encountered one at the roulette table.
I had been playing alone at the table ( very very much my preference) and had recently scored a multi level picture bet hit on 14, one of the MB16 stars. My payout had been 412 units ( at $2 value) and when the visitor addressed me I had $800 in net profit in cash chips in my pocket.
As I play 4 levels of bets at times and all are at varying steps or stages which I carefully monitor I have quite a spread across the table. Appearances are deceptive.
The opening line from the US scientist to his colleague with him ( both small bettors) were 'oh look 100 chips out on the table'. 'I expect you will get back 92 or so'. I do not suffer fools at the table and I simple stated ' you do not understand' and drew the $800 in cash chips from my pocket. To his credit, he apologised, as my next hit was achieved with another black chip $100 net earned.
He failed to see that the surface of the roulette table to me is like a landscape with peaks and troughs and some mountains.
The picture bets ( single target with four symmetrical splits around like a flower in bloom) are a powerful tool, and over the past week I have enjoyed many such massive hits. These are good opportunities to really get ahead in a game, or recover, or take sufficient profit to cash up ( but leave the bet in play one more spin) - they can repeat of course - same odds as any other occurrence but also often the splits pay. I left the table but the comment from the loud American was unfortunate. The locals here know me well and I never hear any such remarks. As my play this year has grown in confidence the win sizes have increased to reach new all time highs. This is good but of course I realize that all professionals will experience cycles of win, and cycles of loss. I try to mitigate the losses and accentuate the wins -lol.
A second example of the useful MB 16 adapted followed an hour later in my last session for the evening.
A young very pretty dealer was spinning the wheel, and she had seen the earlier big win on that adjoining table. The American had long since vanished. My RB ws 200 units and I was slightly ahead with a series of MB 16 hits and as the Zero section was beckoning I added a massive 0-2-3 corner bet - about 12 chips.
3 came in. Then 0. There was sufficient return +100% return on RB to cash up and I discussed with the Pit Boss and the dealer whether to cash up the bet also. I said cash up but asked that they play out the next spin for interest and amusement.
I said to them I anticipate 3 or 12 ( red). 3 came in . It was a wonderful moment when for a brief cycle you can read the game cycle - and not even win, but know you have the ability.
