Another simple question.....so what would the house edge be for both 37 & 39 of there was a bet paying 40:1 & 35:1?

Perhaps I should answer my own question.

On '37' the probability of winning was 1:40.16, therefore,
if the payout is 35 units for a win on 37, than,
(40.16-35) / (40.16+1) = 5.16 / 41.16 = 12.54% house edge
AND
if the payout is 40 units for a win on 37, than,
(40.16-40) / (40.16+1) = .16 / 41.16 = .388% hourse edge

On '39' the probability of winning was 1:42.60, therefore,
if the payout is 35 units for a win on 39, than,
(42.6-35) / (42.6+1) = 7.6 / 43.6 = 17.42% house edge
AND
if the payout is 40 units for a win on 39, than,
(42.6 - 40) / (42.6+1) = 2.6 / 43.6 = 5.96% house edge

IS THIS CORRECT?

Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

What ought we call you on Wednesdays? ;)

Seriously, DJ answered your question. But I wouldn't call you stupid for not knowing what AP means (Associated Press?) All forums slowly but surely accumulate acronyms and abreviations for common, and not so common, terms. Not to mention specialized lingo. You should see what could crop up in Trek boards...

You math guru's are a tough crowd! lol Thank's for confirming my entry level math and satisfying my 'need to know' acronym AP. I'm sure more questions will pop up. (on weekends only) :)

Yes, there is a possibility with the larger of the two spec roulette balls that a ricochet can occur to stop ball #2 from falling in same number but rare. With respect to the double wheel roulette this is not possible because there are two wheels and only one ball.

Thanks for the answer to my question. Your math makes total sense.

You're welcome, my pleasure, glad to know I didn't screw up!
