Fark Master Flex: EnviroDude: starlost: illuminatisCroupier for 2 years . No way this could work in a casino. As a dealer eveytime I spin the wheel I vary the wheel speed and also the amount of power applied to the ball. Also the click of the finger with which the dealer releases the ball apply varying degrees of spin. All of these factors would take a very sophisticated computer, I imagine, to accurately measure. You would also need to be pretty close to the wheel to make any measurement, which would be rather conspicuousexactly. and i've read a good croupier can put the ball in the same 1/8 pie wedge on the wheel. so varying speed like you suggest beats the cheaters unless the cheaters find a lazy croupier who always does it the same way. and if a croupier tries to cheat and throw it in the same spot every time the casino should notice he is aiming for a particular bump thingy on the bowl and spinning wheel the same strength every time.I have a question for you. It is my theory that a experienced dealer can hit near any number he chooses. Can you do this?I've seen it done. A pit boss at our place was showing off on a dead table one night. Standing on the players' side of the table with his wrist cocked backwards to spin the ball he hit '0' three times in a row. That is the type of person casinos hire to watch the dealers and players.
EnviroDude: The boss came over and showed him the payout limit sign by the wheel and didn't pay him his entire winnings.
