Roulette Wheel Bias
By Jake Earl
It is the dream of every gambler to have a system; a system that
allows him to take a casino for a considerable amount of money. For
some people, it was no dream...
Albert R. Hibbs was a noted mathematician. In 1949, he and fellow
graduate student Roy Walford, took time away from school and went
to Nevada. Their aim was to study the roulette wheel bias of Las
Vegas and Reno casinos, then exploit that mathematical "edge" and
win big. They were said to have made over $42,000. in their schemes.
The idea of a biased wheel is not new. Because some roulette wheels
are not properly balanced, the ball is often thrown into some areas
more than others; more than random mathematical probability. By
studying the wheel and it's results for a long period, certain numbers
show a higher percentage of winners than others, and they are bet
upon more frequently by those who gather and analyze this
Joe Jagger was a British engineer who, in the late 1800's, earned the
title of: The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo. (Yes, he is a
distant relative of Mick Jagger.) Another gambler and possibly more
famous still, was Charles Wells. He too had the title. Both gamblers
found and exploited biased roulette wheels in Monte Carlo's famed
"Casino." Wells was also a con man responsible for bilking hundreds
of people on bogus inventions. He died broke in France, after having
spent several prison terms in two different countries.
As late as 1970, a woman named Carol Jarecki and her husband
studied and played roulette wheels in Monte Carlo and San Remo,
making a series of very successful runs on those biased roulette
wheels. So even in this "modern era" of gambling, it seems that there
are still a few places where the roulette wheels are not checked
nearly often enough.
The new way casinos avoid bias is by recording every spin on a
computer program. The program analyzes then reports any bias to
casino management. Once reported, the wheel is serviced and the
bias is removed. This system is used in only the larger casinos, but
it's a safe bet that even the smaller casinos would simply send you
packing if you won too much. Bias or no.

Roulette Statistics & Prediction GOLD can record over
10,000 real time roulette wheel spins and give statistics
including percentage wins about neighbour bets. Neighbour
bets are five numbers clustered around the roulette wheel.
For example a 12 neighbours bet consists of the numbers 7,
28, 12, 35 and 3. If a wheel has bias, certain numbers of
the roulette wheel would come up more than the 37 to 1
average they should do. Roulette Statistics & Prediction
GOLD gives you the statistics to tell whether a roulette
wheel is bias or not. You can only look for bias wheels in
live play online casinos as computer generated numbers can
never have a bias.
Some people have found bias wheels and took advantage to
their great profit. Take a look at this article by Jake Earl.
