Buddy, if you'll look around, I've been preaching this same sermon ,and, have done so for years. Even recently, I've mentioned picking one or two COMPLETE combinations (FORMATS)and just remaining consistent with it until it hits...AND IT WILL. It has to be drawn. People are just impatient and won't spend the right money to ensure they get the hit...they make this game much, much harder than it really is.
This is almost the same principal as Roulette...cover as many bets as possible and simply hit for the smaller profit several times over. Yeah, it costs money to cover bets but, you get it all back, and, the remainder from the total wager is your profit. Roll (4) times and make a $25 profit...that's $100 made off the same money you started with. Simple. But, people get greedy wanting to win ALL THE MONEY and try to cover as few numbers as possible thinking they're saving money. Nope, you're losing unless you get very, very lucky
Consistency comes with coverage, dicipline, and patience. Playing only Red or Black is a 50/50 shot. Covering as many of BOTH as your money allows puts the odds heavily in your favor while decreasing the profit off your win. As an example, I know a guy that maintains $1000 in his account and only plays Roulette. He rolls a few times just to make $150-$200 or so per session...he's not greedy. At the end of the week, he get's a nice payout and starts with the same $1000 the next week.
With some games, how much you spend does have a direct impact on winning, and, how consistently you win. A jackpot game is not one to spend lots of money on as the odds are never in the players' favor and cannot be adjusted to be so.
Playing one complete format is better than bits and pieces of several formats because ALL THE NUMBERS are there... as opposed to just a couple of numbers from two or three formats. Maybe this makes no sense at all
