Roulette is a 50/50 game if you are playing black vs red, except for

the one green slip of the wheel, but the odds of hitting that are very

remote.

So here is an experiment you can test out at home.

Get 21 pennies, and a quarter.

Now get 3 pennies and the quarter ready. Put 2 pennies in a pile, and

one by itself.

If the quarter comes up heads move the penny by itself into the pile of

2, and tails you do the opposite.

The odds are 50% higher that you will win at roulette if you have the

pile of 2 pennies. And here is why. Because the extra pennie is a

freebie that your pretty girlfriend scored from some stooge playing

poker who was probably on a winning streak.

Now you can keep playing this game by adding a penny to each pile, and

the odds of you taking the whole pot continue to go down logically.

When you are playing 3 on 2, the odds of winning aren't 50% higher,

they are only 25% higher. And with each penny you add the odds go down

by half. Or something like that. You do the math.

But the more money your girlfriend hustles the greater your odds of

winning at roulette are. Or you could bring in fake chips yourself.

But the great thing is the more free chips your playing with, the more

of the casinos pot you have a good chance of raking in.

It doesn't matter, just always bet on black.

There are lots of other ways to get that "free penny" as well. Being

able to read good body language at a poker table gets you a free penny,

being a pretty girl gets you that extra, I'm going to overbet my bad

hand penny. You know

But the idea is that if you play the 50/50 game, and you always trying

to win just half of what you are willing to gamble, your odds improve

greatly.

2 against 1 , you have a 66% chance of winning

You win that pot

3 against 1, you have a 75% chance of winning

4 against 2, you have a 66% chance of winning.

So every time you win a pot you get a free penny!

And once you go up on a streak of luck like this, even when you start

to come down, you can continue going back up, and find a happy medium.

You just have to know when to quit, and know how to score those free

pennies. Just look at the whole pot that you have at the time as

something you are willing to risk to get whatever 'goal' you have at

the time.

Can you imagine what the odds would look like if you only go after one

penny as your goal? As the pile of pennies on your side keeps growing

larger, your odds go up exponentially after you reach each goal. But

obviously there is still a chance you will lose everything because you

are risking all of your pennies to win.

Now that this post is featured on JREF let me explain the math a little

bit more.

If I have 2 pennies and I want to start a chain reaction, in a 50/50

game, then I only go after one pennie at a time.

There are 3 ways the game can go, I can lose a penny, get it back, and

then score the penny that is my goal. Or I can win the penny right

off. Or I can lose completely.

So I have a 66.6% chance of winning

And now that I have 3 pennies and I go after one more penny, the odds

are 75% that I will win, because there are 3 ways I can win and 1 way I

can lose.

If I take the chance of playing these two games in a row, There are 7

ways I can win and 5 ways I can lose. So the chances of winning are

(2/3 + 3/4 )/2. And that's 71.42857%

Which is a whole lot better than starting with 2 pennies and playing

against 2 pennies!!

It can only be explained as gravity, and astrological magnetism. Or

maybe, the butterfly effect?
