Other Roulette Cheats
There are so many roulette scams appeared lately. Sometimes it is difficult to differ new means from the new variations of the old ones.
Before gambling became legal many “volunteers” did a lot to impact the game’s outcome. They tampered the roulette wheel the way they wanted. Some even broke into the casinos to “correct” the wheel by loosening it. They also loosened the frets, so that during the spin the ball would bounce that much.
Some devisers even put thin layers of lead in some pockets to make the ball stop there. Or if they did not want the ball to stay in the pocket, they put some elastic material. All these appliances were to create the effect of a biased wheel.
Another illegal way to win is as old as world - magnets. Cheaters put one magnet inside the table and the other one into the ball. But here come the obstacles. They need to have somebody, working at the casino to support their idea and help them with placing those magnets. It would be “a bit” strange, if you ask the dealer to wait and you’d go under the table to do your dirty trick and replace the ball.
If you cannot influence the ball mentally, you can do it physically. If you cannot make the ball do what you want, you can“pad” it and it will land in the desired pocket. But in order to reach it you have to do a lot. It is a prerogative of the roulette manufacturers. They can use different materials for making the pockets. For example, if you need the ball to stick in some pockets, you can make a bottom of the pocket of softer wood or metal, and vice versa.
Some dealers who have many years of experience say that they can predetermine approximate numbers, where the ball would land. As they have spun the roulette wheel million times, they can know few possible numbers, within which the ball may stop. This is not proven yet, so you can find “your” dealer.
Less exact but more profitable way to win some chips is sector targeting. An electronic device is used for determining the sector, where the ball will land. It reminds roulette shoe scam but it is much improved. The largest amount of money, which was ever won using such device, was hit in Great Britain. One night and $1,700,000 were taken home. The players were so lucky because the British law did not prohibit this cheating means.
Wonderful invention of the casinos in Las Vegas. They inscribe in it everybody, who was brave enough to cheat and win millions on that but later was caught red-handed, imprisoned and nobody wants to see him/her in the house.
