Parrondo's paradox Strategy
« on: April 14, 2020, 04:58:06 am »
I'm curious if anyone has attempted to make a script using Parrondo's paradox. Here's a link to the wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parrondo%27s_paradox for those who may be unfamiliar with this concept. I was researching it's practical applications in betting and came across this thread https://www.rouletteforum.cc/index.php?topic=8672.0 providing an overview of a method for use in Roulette. In theory, it sounds more practical in long-term betting than any martingale variation, but I'm not sure if/how it can be applied to dice betting. I have yet to find anyone who's attempted to apply it to a script. If anyone has any input, I'd super appreciate it..

The concept is easy enough to carry over to dice, but from that rouletteforum post, the biggest problem translating into dice is the multiple games to a single bet (b2 from forum post): Betting on red (which has a 47.4% chance to win) and even at the same time (also 47.4% chance to win).

Lose both: (bet 20, lose 20, win 0) -20 profit
Win one but lose the other: (bet 20, lose 10, win 10) 0 profit
Win both: (bet 20, win 20, lose 0) 20 profit

This can't be done in dice unless you make 2 distinct bets. With b1, you can reduce the 4 wagers into a single bet. your odds of hitting any one of the 4 numbers are 4/37=10.81% so play at that chance. alternatively you can chase the same payout which will have a better chance for dice games (you can only win 1 of the 4, so if you bet 4 total, one wins and returns 35x, thus you make 31 profit and a payout of 8x ~ 12.375% chance to win)

If we assume that you split b2 into 2 bets and keep b1 as a single bet, the process can be broken up into:

is it the first or second bet of a sequence?
 -bet 10 low at 49.5%
 -increment bet sequence number

was the previous bet the first part of b2
 -bet 10 on 49.5% high
 -increment bet sequence number

is it the third or 4th bet of a sequence and is your balance%3==0)
 -mark that it's the first bet of b2
 -bet 10 on 49.5% low
 -mark that it's not the first bet of b2

is it the 3rdor 4th bet of a sequence and is your balance%3!=0)
 -bet 8 at 12.357% chance to win
 -increment bet sequence number

reset bet sequence if over 4

Now put that into code and let us know how it goes
