Be careful with your assessment of the impact.If the house edge is normally -.50% and you change it to -.71% that is a 42% INCREASE, not so insignificant. I assure the speed at which you lose your money will change and be felt.
You guys are all math geniuses when it comes to this stuff. Stealth is absolutely correct. The increase in the house's odds is quite a bit and not good for the players. Thanks for the great responses and I'll keep up with you two in the forum for the future!
By those numbers alone, yes, it does look significant. But a 42% increase of what? That is what really makes the difference.........the size of the bet. The only way to offset that sudden increase in the house edge is to possibly decrease your next bet by 42%, or thereabouts, of what the previous bet was.
