What enthusiasm! Wow, if you went into the QCOM forum you'd give Morgie's shuffle a run for his money! LOL

Right you are, you'd be ten bucks ahead on that sample.

I'm going to try to get a large test going tonight or tomorrow morning. No promises, depends on whether I can get a snooze in after dinner. I'll implement your 1, 1.1 Martingale unless you tell me otherwise.

One thing concerns me -- the amount of time you'd have to wait between plays. Remember that each symbol is a full game, not necessarily a single roll. So on the average, how long does it take to play one game at the casinos -- including all the time between the start of one game and the start of the next? One minute? Longer?

Mathematically, 7 losses in a row should come up approximately one out of every 120 games. So you'd have to wait something like two hours (sometimes way less, but sometimes way more!) before plunking your chip down. Interesting, no?

Later,
Jim
