Ok - I ran off 3 cycles of spins and here are the results : This is a completely random example and very common to see actually. I'll just assign a number to 38 different people, it's easier to explain that way. I'll make the following comments, and you can of course tell me if I am right or wrong. Nothing too hard to start with 1) The house edge is made up of this entire group of numbers combined for 3 cycles of spins. Meaning - the math and the house don't really care what numbers won and what lost - the combination of these outcomes equals the house edge regardless of who bets where. For my example - to make it simple - each player flat bet their "number" at $1.00 per spin for all 3 cycles. 2) Player #4 achieved 7 wins (thanks to random and how not all numbers will equally appear with the same number of appearances). while Player #10 had no wins and lost ($1.00 x 114 spins). ALL players combined = a loss (for the players as a group) of -$228.00 (the house edge for each player combined betting every spin, flat betting for 3 cycles). In the image below you can clearly see the 5.26% (while it may be relevant later --- player #10 is at -$114.00 and player #4 is at +$138.00) Are what I said in 1) and 2) accurate ?
