Now if you think the Martingale is a white knuckle ride, this system will make you chuckle. Should you play it? Only if:
1. You do not have a pace maker fitted
2. You are extremely wealthy
3. You can jump out of a plane at 30,000 feet and not feel your heart beat increase.
It does have one advantage. This system is so simple, even a monkey could play it (well probably not, but you get our drift).
This system is based on the theory that in any one session of 37 spins (on a European Roulette wheel) only about 68% of the numbers, ie around 24, actually show. What this means, is that several numbers show up 2, 3 or more times in the session and some don’t appear at all.
In the Lucky number system, you pick a single number. You place a bet of 1 on that number, then if you lose you place a bet of 2 on the same number, then a bet of 3 etc all the way up to 37. This entire progression adds up to 703, by the way, just in case you were wondering.
If you win on the first bet, you walk away with a profit of 34.
If you win on the last bet, you walk away with a profit of 592
But remember, you might have picked on the the 32% of numbers that doesn’t show in a session of 37 spins. in which case you lose 703. Ouch!
