    Nevertheless I see roulette as a remarkable microcosm of life, with so many life principles able to be viewed at the wheel, and in the behaviour around the wheel. No wonder we refer to 'The Wheel of Fortune'. It is just that it can become hypnotic.

    Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
    Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
    Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival balloon
    Like a carousel that's turning running rings around the moon
    Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face
    And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space
    Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind!
     
    Like a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own
    Down a hollow to a cavern where the sun has never shone
    Like a door that keeps revolving in a half forgotten dream
    Or the ripples from a pebble someone tosses in a stream
    Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face
    And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space
    Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind!
     
    Keys that jingle in your pocket, words that jangle in your head
    Why did summer go so quickly? Was it something that you said?
    Lovers walking along a shore and leave their footprints in the sand
    Is the sound of distant drumming just the fingers of your hand?
    Pictures hanging in a hallway and the fragment of a song
    Half remembered names and faces, but to whom do they belong?
    When you knew that it was over you were suddenly aware
    That the autumn leaves were turning to the color of her hair!
    Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
    Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
    As the images unwind, like the circles that you find in
    The windmills of your mind!

    For a moment you could not recall the color of his eyes!

  • Always enjoyed the two versions of Thomas Crown Affair, but particularly Steve McQueen 1968 version and Faye Dunaway- beautifully filmed. Oscar Nomination for the soundtrack, and Oscar for best original song (WOYM) by Michel LeGrand. One of only 10 ever Ferrari 275GTB/ NART/ spyder featured and MM dune buggy owned and Ferrari eventually owned by SM. Norman Jewison the Director and split screen technology from Expo 67 which was also the exhibition that featured Montreal Habitat and made the career for the brilliant Architect Moshe Safdie. Image of the dune beach frame reflected romantic vision for California Architecture (SeaRanch) although filmed on Massachusetts coast/ Boston. Notice it was shot from the north so that the beachfront appeared to be facing west ( ie California)*. Beacon Hill House (TC home) was built 1800 and designed by Bulfinch Architect. Lots of connections.

    * when we look at maps, north is usually at the top of the page - a cognitive bias.

    On a further rotation, moving into the absurd, the case of the highly successful Director of the 1999 version of the film, John McTiernan, is a bizarre insight into the nightmare of US Federal Prosecution Law. He was sentenced to 12 months prison and was released early 2014 during which time he wrote. The legal action involving the Pellicano scandal took 8 years to unfold, doubtless at huge expense.

  • Okay here is an example from this evening at Dublin Bet table #1.

    Overall I played 33 spins ( 30 mins) but the real beauty was in the final 12 spins.

    The first 21 spins gave a closed WF5 result.

    Then followed...

    32
    30
    24
    3
    24
    3
    26
    20
    6
    22
    32
    24

    note WF3 result.

    note passage 30  24  3  24  and 3

    the 24 on either side of the 3 so what follows....  30/24 again or 3/ neighbour... it was 3

    rolling symmetry, also known as penultimate cycle  repeats

    WF targets were 24, 3 and eventually 32

    30/24  3  24  3  so next target is 24/30 or 3/ neighbour, and it is 26 for best symmetry.

    the spin relations of 24/3  and 3/24  eventually mirror ( tending towards) approximately as 32/24

    On another level of detail note that from earlier spin sample A streets were 'delayed' and a first phase attack failed so we await the trigger ( ie eventual re-appearance of the target A street). 13 appeared just before the 32 at the start of this last game, so we then target 3 appearances of A streets...

    13  trigger recovery  A trigger
    17
    32
    30
    24
    3      A 1  -9
    24
    3      A 2  +18
    26    A 3  +27    +36 in part recovery of -54  flat staking

    For those who have followed my writing this last example is very valuable.

    In over 90% of such conditions ( playing this method) the clustering of 3 outcomes eventuates. Sometimes if they come in on 1st or 2nd attempts the return is such that the prior loss is totally eliminated and replaced by profit. In this example the conservative proportional recovery achieves the professional play goal of mitigating loss. Of course you may still have to face the worst case scenario of say only 1 strike or 2 coming in and then the need for a further cycle of recovery play. In such cases the force to change is weak and the game should be set aside and a loss accepted, or a reverse bet strategy in the short term of same be adopted.

    Those who follow my writings over the past 18 months will understand this terminology.

  • This is the theoretical ( ie post analysis) result from a live session yesterday played at the live wheel at the boutique casino.

    Four sets of nine numbers were tested over an extended 126 spin session where live spins were recorded.

    Wheel Set  +171 units high +189 and low 0 ( at start)  in 126 spins.  Peak at 110 spins   A type set outcome

    Table Set     +18 units  high +126 and low 0 (at start) in 126 spins. Peak at 70 spins then decline.  B set outcome

    Finales Set  +342 units high +396 and low 0 (at start) in 126 spins. Peak at 100 spins then retrace. A+ type set outcome

    Street Set   -135 units high +63 at start and low -162 at 100 spins. B- type set outcome

    Next post will be a set of the spins and an analysis that will help show how this bet works in such a set of outcomes and how the bet might best be played live.

    Overall result  +396 units flat staking in 504 spins +78.57% at the top end of expectation range enabled by 2 x A sets ( wheel +finales)

  • This session unfolded 5 minutes after the casino opened yesterday.

    I participated in 6 spins and took profit before the seventh spin.

    The profit that resulted was 150% of my total risk bank that was brought to the table. The reason for this was that from spin three my bets flowed with the dominant short spin cycle, ie same.  Same consists of a grouping from a reservoir up to 18 numbers. The range of duration for a cluster extends from ( by definition) from a minimum of three outcomes to 17 or more ( a recent street cluster extended 17 spins, one of the longest I have noted). Bell curve of distribution of cluster lengths peaks around 5 to 6 spins. Once a cluster is broken there is great opportunity to predict change from within a reservoir of 9 numbers.

    In this example the wheel set was same.

    Table set was same.

    Finale set broke but prediction change was incomplete after two attempts.

    Street set broke and prediction change was struck on first attempt.

    Do you see that in this example there were two prediction groups but with fixed ( same) clusters in wheel and table sets.

    As prime targets I used 1,2,3,13,14,15, and 25,26,27 but particularly 13,14,15,25,26,27, especially 14 (wheel and table sections) for the sixth spin.

    14 came in. I cashed in as my pre-game target was achieved efficiently.

    Here is the spin sequence....

    24
    22
    16
    18
    20
    14

    Principle observed here -  high unit value short attack after observation of extended cluster behaviour throughout.

    Roulette offers splendid opportunities for effective and efficient short game return in certain circumstances such as the short cycle described above. The returns are enhanced by priorities within your bet structure design (it may change after every spin) and the clearer a single target shows the more efficient the bet. As roulette pays 35:1 there can be strong leverage and with short and timely use of higher units then play can be very successful.

    Note all my data results are based on conservative flat staking.

    With smart use of stepped bets then efficiency can be enhanced while attacking. While defensive play should either be virtual ( just watching) or minimum value level stake.



    I then took a proportion of profit and played on a selected slot machine. as recently has been my fortunate experience ( luck) the machine quickly doubled my input with a small jackpot and after a bit of fun a further 50% profit was enabled.

    Do you see what I am endeavouring to explain and explore here.

    Peak efficient play and opportunism when the cycles are favourable. Also to extend that, as soon as a machine gives signs of being responsive, ie rewarding returns I up the unit to near max as soon as possible in the event that a continuation of the short cycle of advantage continues. How long do these cycles continue, when in the zone? ....  long enough and as always know/ sense when to exit. A simple cash calculation/ monitor can determine this. Push as long as there is response. Stop when you pass a critical reverse correction.

    It is quite simple and beautiful while it is working, and I suspect these are event cycles not rare but probably in the order of about one in three sessions. Push very aggressively while opportune. At other times be defensive if encountering loss.

    Curiously some of my current research has extended into sports betting ( particularly international and UK league football ). One of my most recent streaks involved Argentine, Chilean and Korean football with some English Championship games.

    I am looking at short clusters/ threads/ streaks and seek common characteristics tn order to qualify.

    Hope this is of interest to you. This is all part of my expanding upon the theme of 'why this bet works'.

    As an aside, and for Vic to note, please observe that I write quite a lot on this forum and any worthwhile writing does take a time because I try to polish and order thoughts, and re-read and spell check before release. I have only very rarely encountered technical delays or faults with access, and that may be through internet connection fluctuation as I am in the midst of a great deal of construction and major institutional usage nearby ( university and hospital). That is why I have chosen to enable the highest level of unlimited internet connection. I find that the facility provided for this website is sufficient, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to publish. Thanks Vic.

    PS  I should add, and apologies to US readers if necessary because my observations on wheel sets are based on the French wheel layout. All other sets mentioned are universal. It would be no difficulty in preparing a US wheel set, just that two numbers would have to be nominated to be between contiguous seams and could be viewed as overlaps or invisible.

  • Here is a report on the following day's live play at the boutique casino,over a 4 hour period including lunch.

    Literally on the first spin at the table there was substantial win, but (on careful reflection*) I did continue a further 5 spins to cash in when the same number hit was made, a little more than on the first opportunity.

    What I say next may surprise you, but the following definitely does apply to my personal play because I have tested this over many months, as objectively as it is possible for me to be observing myself !

    So I am not extrapolating for this to be a general principle, although I suspect it is, and it is up to the reader to question and observe personal action/ reaction.

    I find that when playing and a 'substantial' win is achieved, ie a win that meets a level/ goal that is established prior to a session commencing, and these can occur very quickly ('too soon'), then if that win is 'ignored' and play continues, possibly ongoing to an ultimate loss, then there seems a strong signal ( self signal) is sent to the player's sub -conscious ( the automatic level of consciousness below the surface that influences all we do) that we want to lose, or why else would we continue?

    In short I now find if a win comes quickly, easily, I note to cash in and 'acknowledge' the success. Play can later continue but I find it makes huge later implications in the longer medium term and long term session(s) performance.

    This is the principle I have found regarding my own play in short, medium and long cycles.

     *Always, acknowledge and accept success.


    I went on and played several roulette sessions and always after a win at the tables played various slot machines. But today only one out of half a dozen gave a positive result. ( I tried). Fortunately the roulette sessions were all successful, and in fact remarkably so, and on that theme I want to discuss another important facet of play with this bet.

    I use the slot machines, and say sports betting, as leverage generators, having accessed the profit in the first place through roulette. Last night none of the strings/ streaks/ parlays in the leverage stakes ( slots/racing/football) co-operated. But that did not matter because the principal sums used were small and themselves were only a small percentage of the roulette winnings (20%). On many occasions they do work, but not last night - too many draws in the football.

    So this principle is of leverage, extending profit.

    Playing on the 'rapid roulette' which is a screen console facing a live wheel and dealer, it is possible to hit the 'repeat' button which in one second can restore a bet and then it can be further enhanced. In other words when playing 'same', ie a continuing cluster characteristic, say finales that end in 7/8/9 and the number 30 ( 9 numbers) it is possible to use a few key sixlines or better still, streets/splits on the table which focus on such characteristics say 7,8,9 -17/18 -27/30- 28,29,30.

    When the finales are in this dominant cluster form ( say for example 7,12,28,14,29,18,22,28,30,8  in a series of spins) then when the cluster is evident ,ie after the third spin, then using the repeat button the leverage on playing 'same' can be phenomenal, even without or more likely, in parallel with a 'change' predictive target clear.

    In my method most spins are played as there are 4 sets monitored so that on many occasions there can be 2 or 3 targets - but I often really load the overlaps.

    This is what happened yesterday and on 2 occasions I left the table with large profit but on later observation noted the continuity after I left where profits could have been further doubled. This is one of the great characteristics of 'same' play which is a sort of reverse bet application to my normal predictive change target play technique.

    Here are the two examples.

    There was an A/D street pattern ongoing ( dominant same). My target was actually the zero section on the wheel and because of a finale signal also the zero was a major anchor bet twice the size of the other bets. When it hit I cashed in.

    Soon after I left the outcomes went 12,26,35,26. These would have been four big hits, and the AD street cluster was relatively stubborn and fixed ( it had failed to change on an earlier change trigger), so the continuity instead of being a stubborn failure, was the means to  a more leveraged hit, or series of potential hits.

    This may happen 20-30% of the time of all sessions, but now I am really in the successful hunting zone I may seek such opportunities more often. That is where playing 4 overlapping sets of characteristics can be useful when play is understood and fluent. Of course at other times it may be very much through a glass darkly, so please allow and respect random behaviour outcomes - clarity is fleeting, short cycle and rare.

    The other opportunity I noted late in the day after I had cashed out and was playing at standard table for a few successful spins ( repeating of an earlier wheel section characteristic with the same dealer as earlier, neighbours of 18). I took the profit again loading zero and splits very heavily.

    What followed was fascinating...

  • My bet works based on of the hypothesis that it is the natural tendency of random sequential flows generated in creation to cluster into small familiar groups for relatively short cycles. This happens on all levels. Duration is relative according to scale.

    In the context of roulette 37 or 38 numbers can conveniently be broken into groups of 9 numbers. The outsiders can be overlaps or can be ignored in practical application. By using various sets of classification (ie finales, wheel sections, streets) different numbers can be the overlaps so as minimise statistical distortions when simultaneously playing four sets as I do. In roulette by linking spin outcomes cluster formation is evident in more than 80% of outcomes in linear analysis.

    Further it is well understood that human consciousness has an innate ability/ desire to seek out patterns which can be of use in dealing with the complexities of life. Our brains are hard wired*** to search and detect meaningful patterns. Such skill can be further developed with practice and motivation.

    Roulette provides a great opportunity for this as long as we are clear minded, fresh and able to work at peak condition. My work in roulette is very demanding and although I may be enthusiastic, any more than 2-3 hours of continuous play can be counter productive. Efficiency we seek at all levels, and sometimes, as I have encountered especially in the past three days of sessions, sufficient opportunities can be delivered within just a few minutes of play. This is really important to note and thus high value units are recommended as my work is essentially flat staking although with stepping of units at times of parlay for great opportunities with high strike rates.

    Roulette is great example of randomly generated flows of individual outcomes.

    My work links groups of outcomes to advantage.

    *** I now re-state the 'hard-wired' expression to more accurately state that our brains are alert to change and opportunity to learn, and in fact are 'soft-wired' to express 'plasticity', flexibility and change and adaptation to changing circumstances and conditions. Searching and seeing patterns, images that are memorable and signal success, is what enables us to succeed.

  • Please note the amendments in the prior post that incorporate latest published research in science.

    This bet succeeds because it recognises the building blocks of clusters which run as hidden linkages over/under continuous signal output from the engine driving random generation of 'independent' spin outcomes, the roulette wheel and dealer.

  • XXVV thank you for all the information you share with us!

    Reading your contributions on your private bet is like solving a Rubik's Cube with one hand. Only the most persistent and dedicated will be succeeding. But if you keep in mind the ultimate goal it is not hard to find motivation.

    I have the following questions:

    1.How does your private bet works if you use 2 instead of 4 family members (levels) of betting (eg. only A-D streets and Table Set)?

    2. What is the main advantage of betting on 4 levels? Is it faster triggers while playing or playing with less exposure to risk or both?

    3. How do you follow the game? With the help of a paper sheet or everything happens only in your head?

    Thanks in advance on the answers.

    Best!

  • XXVV thank you for all the information you share with us!

    My pleasure GaMMoN. It works on several levels.

    Reading your contributions on your private bet is like solving a Rubik's Cube with one hand. Only the most persistent and dedicated will be succeeding. But if you keep in mind the ultimate goal it is not hard to find motivation.

    Good. Much patience, perseverance and tenacity is necessary, but the rewards are worthwhile, again on lots of levels. You are right regarding the analogy and I have often thought of that image, but recall with lateral thinking one hand is enough as long as you can access other means.

    I have the following questions:

    1.How does your private bet works if you use 2 instead of 4 family members (levels) of betting (eg. only A-D streets and Table Set)?

    Very good question. Actually one only set is sufficient. All sets, if properly balanced in design ( ie not biased or skewed), are of equal value and efficiency, given sufficient testing sample ( suggest 5000 spins and all sets will demonstrate a positive return having gone through all the cycles of gain and correction). I have developed over 24 sets, some of which are variations within a type, such as wheel sections but on different layouts and groupings, and there could be many more. We have looked at this many in the context of running simultaneous bots, although at this stage I prefer live play exclusive.

    2. What is the main advantage of betting on 4 levels? Is it faster triggers while playing or playing with less exposure to risk or both?

    Four sets provide greater earning power. However sets (levels as you term them) move in and out of cycles of gain or loss depending on relative position of positive or correction cycle. We have ways to mitigate correction phases but in some cases say 10-15% it is recommended to write off a loss rather than consume too much time/ energy extricating yourself from a complicated tangle. Better not to have ventured in at all. That is why within 20/30 spins I can assess a game cycle and at least assess whether to stop or go. Sometimes a more conservative player may choose to observe ( ie virtual play) to see what unfolds.

    As I view sequences of play as inter-connected, as well as respecting individual outcomes, I consider it possible to gauge what may be around the corner, and thus proceed to play. Of course it is looking into a glass darkly but there is sometimes more illumination than others.

    Sometimes all four sets go awry- and its is best to leave and take a loss. Rarely all sets can be in prime mode and literally a harvest follows. More usually it is a mix of various cycles and the smart player learns to dance over the lillypads. That is a little reference for Green Guy. It is all about timing
    .


    3. How do you follow the game? With the help of a paper sheet or everything happens only in your head?

    I can mentally play one or two sets invisibly in short sequences which is handy for crowded spaces. However best to use casino provided printed cards which they confidently provide to system players who they know are their best source of reliable income.

    My work is private but at my home casino, where I do not attempt to hide from the cameras, I often have friendly chats with the staff. I do not take advantage of their courtesy or goodwill, and yes I also have off days, and occasionally lose. At that boutique casino I have kept my biggest win live at $5400, and rarely play large units. I do have a lot of fun there, and meet a few regulars.
    While travelling, or on internet live play, there are good opportunities for larger earnings given right conditions, resources, and state of mind.


    Thanks in advance on the answers.

    My pleasure.

  • My next full post will include some astonishing examples where I will show you that in certain circumstances which I will be able to describe in sufficient detail in principle, based on a live session at Dublin last night, where toward the end of the 90 spin plus session, the next and penultimate most likely numbers were whittled down from 37 possibles to 1 or 2 most probables. They in fact unfolded as such and that condition continued for several spins in a short cycle cluster, and at other times in the session most favoured target options were similarly limited to within 5 or 6 probables.

    In this style of play it really is like fishing where patience and tenacity are required to wade through and await the inevitable opportune circumstances. So to say play through 60 spins or so in break even mode is quite an achievement because ironically it is during what appears the most adverse of conditions that sometimes these best opportunities arise. You just have to learn to see them and keep cool and calm.

    My partial explanation will illustrate the numbers from Table #1 Dublin 12 hours ago and describe how in principle we can seize such opportunities.

    As earlier discussed there are several reasons, principles why my private bet is successful, and fundamental to this is the ability to see why losses occur, read the play, the game cycle, and where possible mitigate those losses, and even in some circumstances, replace/ recover  those losses, or as in this case supremely benefit from the short passage of relative clarity that enables extremely efficient bets to be made. When you just 'know' it will be 3 and the 3 follows is a great feeling and result. The realisation of the 3 is entirely rational and able to be analysed and understood.

    This is the thing with roulette, the payouts are always 35-1 per single inside target selected. The casino has to pay you out even though you might have loaded the 3.  It is not like BJ where extreme suspicion is aroused by a leap from a $500 chip to a $20,000 chip ( ie 40 x). Table limits in roulette are in place at the tables but by straight up limits of 20 x  or so together with splits and other loading 100x ratios are achievable. However excess betting dilutes this efficiency. Although on internet live betting I tend to continue to load ongoing bet selections to save time and in Dublin we have that $1000 limit on the table overall at certain betting levels. In my local casino if you overload, no drama, they just give you back the excess.

    I should also add in fairness though that with my bet the Alpha optimum condition sessions can run for 20-40 spins with earnings at averages of + 5 to +10 units per spin per set  ( if two or more sets are in phase). They are fairly rare and occur about 10%-15% of the time. The really tough sessions are there also similarly 10%-15% of the time and with in my view about 5% being walkaway best not played/ unplayable category where you might lose 500 units.  The stunning 'harvest' sequencessay 10% of the time though can earn 500 units in a short passage, . In the middle of all of that you have the bread and butter earnings averaging about 0.25 to 0.50 units per spin per set, and we have shown recently a suitable method for calculating edge at around +20%.

    Further it is fundamental to understand WHY a bet should win. If you cannot see a fundamental principle at work then it is unlikely you will develop any winning bet. I was in that position for many years when starting to play, and it is ironical the question arose through the nefarious activities of CEH.

  • This is the data from a session at Dublin played at their 8am/9am time on 25 May. The table was not delayed by live customers. It started badly for me but I recovered, and restored break even by 70 spins and in the closing 20-30 spins achieved considerable gains despite some challenging technical situations, ie recovery phases required for 2 of the 3 sets played, Despite the fast spin rate, ie every 45 secs or so 'windows' the 3 sets can be recorded quickly with practice and sometimes I simply hit the replay button on a betting pattern and then just added where and when appropriate until the opportunity suddenly ( as it does) change.

    3   what else could it be!  because of wheel section cluster, finales cluster and alternating pattern and street cluster

    24                          ***I can add a little extra detail here as to why the sequence from 15,0,6 was so profitable and is a
    9                                  golden opportunity when the phase is 'same' and all the clusters- remember they by definition are
    2                                  made  of two groups of nine numbers. When the pattern is fixed and stable - in roulette cycle time that
    27                                might be 5-6 spins - then as in this case sometimes like R/B betting you can get a tic/toc rhythm going
    5                                  as in this case CACACA with the finales grouping. Combine that with 'fixed' patterns in wheel section and
    15                                streets you create a net and that is another reason I play 2-3 sets live specially - you can get this triad
    9                                  unfolding - very very different to the rich 'change' patterns that can give rapid returns with 3-4 duration
    19                                clusters. This is the opposite pole but just as potentially fertile.

  • This was a detail from an extended session live at the casino today.

    I played 4 roulette sessions and all were winners. Today all the sets recorded (four) performed very actively so returns were quick and plentiful. At one stage i went up to the mezzanine for a celebration lunch and sure enough looking down witnessed one of those three spin sequences where there is potential for a fortune, but through the eyes of 'my universe', ie very subjective. Other players may have their own 'anchor/ favourite sequences. I will tell also a further hilarious detail from my lunch in a moment.

    In my experience, through long experience, especially at live tables, I have found that following zero, no matter what clusters are in play ( or even more so because of them in today's experience), I need to cover 17 with 25, 34 and 6 also needing attention.

    Here was the sequence today...

    28
    30

    34

    17
    9
    18

    While having my lunch ( I had a prime viewing table at the centre front of the mezzanine) the 'suits' arrived. But not just suits - they had female accomplices as well - one a Queen Bee type character who controlled the group it seemed , as they gathered uncomfortably close to my table, while she scanned her Apple tablet/ phone as if accessing all vital data financial about the place. These guys moved and projected 'we own the place' and really intimidated everyone. Clearly they wanted my table but I had a big lunch and a big glass of expensive Merlot to quaff. I was not moving.

    Eventually their drink order arrived, ten glasses of water, and their various small food orders. What an unpleasant group and they had a look about them which was cold and measuring.

    As an amusing thought I had started thinking that if they asked me to move ( they had no legal or ethical right of course) I would request $100. But as the minutes progressed and their body language increased, I decided $1000 was the figure in mind.

    Fortunately it did not come to that. I saw the screen below, finished my food and wine, and decided to return to the roulette below ( risky for lots of reasons - but today was a good day to break the rules).

    I had it figured when I saw some casino staff running around after them , and I confirmed with a dealer below what was the story. Board Meeting today - a big new Board as new shareholders are in place - changes ahead. What an arrogant group though.

    I looked up from below but they were quickly gone and inspecting other building areas. Checking their figures. When I cashed up one of them was even talking through takings with a Head Cashier. It was hilarious. I felt like a Player.

  • To cut a long story short can you please explain why this has landed in my thread?  One hour and 11 minutes is a large slice of valuable time. Is there some principle or point here? This is 2013 market  highly leveraged and extremely risky specialist futures trading?

    Looking forward to your comments GaMMoN.
