Yes. That is precisely what I think you can. Not one. I have not even checked; but every bet you ever made, regardless of which side you bet on, comes to 10, and all but a few of them are worth 10, I know from experience. I am not, of course, talking of the roulette games which I had, at a young age, a hand at, and which, at times I thought, were more fun than any lottery I could go to. (At once, without a word, I turned on my poker-room screen, and took to the count-up.)
