    There are no official stats on this so I guess its more of opinions.

    *TRY* and answer honestly. All answers are cool with me.

    If we could ask 20+ year, B&M roulette players this >>

    How ever many numbers you play today (vs. 20+ years ago), how (if at all) has that changed from 20 years ago?

    Meaning, in the beginning, playing 20 (or more) numbers back then and you NOW play only a few.

    OR

    In the beginning, playing just a few numbers and now, you play 20 (or more) numbers.

    OR

    Perhaps nothing has really changed over 20+ years?

    Of those three, I wonder what those stats would be?

    I play fewer numbers than I did originally.

    I know I said I was gone, but this question is one of the most interesting in years.

    I started with 14 numbers, all located next to each other on the wheel. I thought that thew physical position of numbers on the wheel had significance.

    That led to the 3 hottest numbers and trying to figure out a method to exploit those changes. I did that for another five years.

    Then I switched to 50/50 bets, 18 numbers. That was all that stuff a Gamblers Glen starting back in 2006.

    30 years ago I tried to figure out how to win at double dozens/columns, 24 numbers.

    Now, and for the past 5-6 years I have settled on 24-26 numbers at a time.

    I have chosen this amount based on one single reason. The action for changes in randomness, the stuff I try to read and make guesses from, the action occurs more often with this larger sized group. I see sleepers, singles, patterns, and the global effect way more often in a shorter span of spins than 50/50 bets and almost undetectable in the hottest numbers stuff like law of thirds.

    So unless this topic stays alive I will go back to just checking in from time to time, just to read.

    No significant change for me since 1981 .My choice of bet selection began with the 24 number 2 dozen bet and John Patrick`s original 22 action numbers.

    On very rare occasions I have chosen 1 or 2 EC bets . IF 2 EC then in competition with each other.

    I once met JP at the rump Taj in Atlantic City ( ca 1996 ) when a film crew from Holland made a documentary about the day of a US professional gambler .


    John had also been an invited guest at Mr. Trump`s 50th birthday party in the gold room at the Taj.

    I Found a good reason to move to 18 numbers at a time, even chance bets. I still use swing trading methods like found in the stock market. It's just less volatile.


    This too. It now opens up many games, Craps, Baccarat, and even Blackjack that has no option for opposite side betting.
    With Craps you have Pass and Don't pass. With Baccarat you have Player and Bank. But with Blackjack all you have is win or lose.


    Example:
    Code:
    | B  R | O  E | L  H |    #    W/L   win total
    |    X | X    | X    |    03 -- W  ( $ 90 )
    | X    | X    | X    |    15 -- L  ( $ 0 )
    | X    | X    | X    |    11 -- L  ( $ -90 )
    | X    |    X | X    |    08 -- L  ( $ -180 )
    |    X |    X | X    |    16 -- W  ( $ -90 )
    |    X |    X | X    |    16 -- W  ( $ 0 )
    |    X | X    |    X |    27 -- W  ( $ 90 )
    | X    | X    | X    |    13 -- L  ( $ 0 )
    |    X | X    |    X |    19 -- W  ( $ 90 )
    | X    |    X |    X |    20 -- L  ( $ 0 )
    |    X |    X | X    |    14 -- W  ( $ 90 )
    | X    |    X |    X |    26 -- L  ( $ 0 )
    | X    | X    |    X |    33 -- L  ( $ -90 )
    | X    |    X | X    |    02 -- L  ( $ -180 )
    |    X |    X |    X |    36 -- W  ( $ -90 )
    |    X |    X |    X |    34 -- W  ( $ 0 )
    |    X | X    | X    |    07 -- W  ( $ 90 )
    | X    | X    |    X |    31 -- L  ( $ 0 )
    | X    |    X | X    |    02 -- L  ( $ -90 )
    |    X | X    | X    |    09 -- W  ( $ 0 )
    |    X | X    | X    |    01 -- W  ( $ 90 )
    |    X | X    | X    |    05 -- W  ( $ 180 )
    | X    | X    |    X |    31 -- L  ( $ 90 )
    |    X | X    |    X |    23 -- W  ( $ 180 )
    |    X |    X |    X |    32 -- W  ( $ 270 )
    |    X | X    |    X |    23 -- W  ( $ 360 )
    |    X | X    |    X |    25 -- W  ( $ 450 )
    | X    | X    | X    |    13 -- L  ( $ 360 )
    |    X |    X |    X |    32 -- W  ( $ 450 )
    |    X |    X |    X |    36 -- W  ( $ 540 )
    |    X | X    |    X |    21 -- W  ( $ 630 )
    |    X | X    |    X |    25 -- W  ( $ 720 )
    |    X | X    |    X |    27 -- W  ( $ 810 )
    |--------------------|      38 -- L  ( $ 720 ) 
    Example uses $5 chips for a total of $90 per bet.

    B R column = Black Red bumbers
    O E column = Odd Even numbers
    L H column = Low High 18
