you mean to tell me there is a possibility of guess wrong 1000 steps in one line in a honest roulette game?
it would have to be far greater than hitting the powerball megamillion and keno all in 1 day yea its possible unlike growing spaghetti out of your head but will it happen?
no it won't so yes the MG would survive 1000th steps

What are the odds that a particular sperm cell in my fathers sack would grow up and post on this forum this very day? A typical male produces well over a billion of them in his life. Just posting is a one in many billion occurrence. If something can happen, it eventually will. That it hasn't happened yet just makes more likely that it will.

because your saying theres a possibility a earthquake might happen in nyc and level the entire city? can it happen? certainly will it happen in my lifetime? no
a massive earth shake hasn't happened in past 100 years in nyc that would level the field and i guess thats my arguement with a 100th step martingale
yea it could guess wrong but i would make money before it gets me and when it does happen id be in the grave but again very doubtful would stumble upon 1000 reds/blacks on a honest roulette wheel in a row

So what?
You could reliably increase your massive bankroll b a fraction of a percent, maybe even a few percent, depending on how you define reliably..

NYC had a 500 year storm twice in three years.
My family lost our original summer house in the Hurricane of 1938. When they rebuilt, they moved it roughly half mile inland. From 1939 to 2010 or so, we had no issues with storm flooding. In 2011, Hurricane Irene hits and water comes right up to my house. They say it is a once in a lifetime event. 2012 brings us Superstorm Sandy and we get flooded. The next year, two thunderstorms collide virtually on top of us and we get ten inches of rain in a half hour or some insane total. Rafts rescued motorists on the parkways while others sat on their cars roofs waiting for help.

Yea. Recently I hit a golf ball. It landed on a patch of grass no bigger than a golf ball. What were the chances of that miracle. I'm not even a good golfer.

PS
The house at the end of my street has been struck by lightning twice within 3 years. Major damage each time.

Wow. You missed the sand trap! What are the odds of THAT?!!

But seriously, 1,000 losses in a row? The odds of that are extremely remote. Like, if you made thousands of bets per hour, you壇 go many (thousands?) of lifetimes before you hit 1,000 losses. But even with that near zero possibility, I wouldn稚 bet on it.

But as others have said, running a Martingale, long before you get to 1,000 losses, hell, even before you get to double digit losses, you壇 run out of bankroll and/or hit the max bet.

Not if you had an infinite bankroll and nothing else to do with it. I'd use at least some of it to buy the Strat so when I'm taking a break from my infinite roulette game I could drop mismatched items off the top and see which one hits first.

If you had an infinite bankroll, nobody would book your action. There would also be better plays.
May the cards fall in your favor.
