SINGLE ZERO WHEELS VERSUS DOUBLE ZERO WHEELS
Whatever roulette system you play (prediction, biased, progression, etc..) you are always better off playing a single zero roulette wheel. The double zero wheel has a bigger advantage for the casino -5.26 percent and is the reason it is not a popular game here in the country. So, stop playing in the casinos that only offer double zero wheels and start playing in the ones that offer single zero wheels (they have better odds, only -2.7 percent).
Single zero roulette wheels can be found in the US. Sometimes with even more European rules like “en prison” which brings the house edge even lower. (Try the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and the new Beau Rivage in Biloxi. Be sure to bring a good bankroll (the minimum bets are 25 dollars).
Single zero roulette wheels can also be found in the following places:
- Any Australian casino.
- In New Zealand at Sky Casino.
- Throughout Europe and many casinos in the UK.
- Las Vegas, Nevada: The Stratosphere, Monte Carlo, The Frontier and Tropicana, Caesars Palace is rumored to have one, also try Binion’s, the Reserve, Las Vegas Hilton, MGM Grand, and the new Bellagio.
- Reno, Nevada: The Peppermill, Wendover, Nevada: Peppermill and Rainbow Casinos.
- Indiana: The new Caesar’s.
- Mississippi: All three Grand Casino properties have at least one single zero wheel. These are in Biloxi, Gulfport and Tnica. The new Palace, President, and Treasure Bay are rumored to have them.
- Louisiana: Grand Casino Avoyelle, Markville. Casino Rouge in Baton Rouge.
- Atlantic City, New Jersey: Tropicana, Caesar’s and Trump Marina, Trump Taj Mahal (100 minimum bet) Connecticut: Foxwoods supposedly had one.
- Canada: Halifax and Sydney, Nova Scotia, West Edmonton mall, Royal Diamond casino in Vancouver, British Columbia.
- Malaysia: Genting Highlands near Kuala Lumpur has 60 tables with single zero wheels.
- Bahamas: Atlantis, paradise island.
BASIC VIDO POKER STRATAGEY
Always hold: a royal flush, straight flush, four of a kind, full house, three of a kind, two pair. Break up a flush or straight flush ONLY when you have a chance for a Royal Flush.
MORE BOUNUS INFORMATION
There isn’t a day that goes by that a call or email comes in that goes something like “I’m on my way to Vegas! The plane leaves in an hour! What numbers should I play?!”
Playing an extremely biased roulette wheel is about the closest thing you can get to a “sure thing” in a casino. If the number 17 keeps coming up once every 30 spins (on average) instead of 37 or 38… How hard would it be to win money? All you would have to do is put $100 chip down on 17 every spin. Even a child (if it were legal for him to gamble) could make a small fortune.
Actually, it usually isn’t quite that simple. Millions of dollars have been made at biased wheel play. However, and despite what you may think or what you may have heard, big wins are not a thing of the past. In fact, one biased wheel team took at least 6 million dollars out of Atlantic City casinos in just one recent year.
Make no mistake, though. There is no substitute for hard work and long hours of observation if you are going to make money playing biased wheels. The most important thing about choosing a casino in which to hunt for a biased wheel is accessibility. Why? Because you are going to need a lot of data. You are going to be spending a lot of time there and you don't want to run up a huge hotel and restaurant bill while scouting for a good game. Your best choice, of course, is the casino that is closest to you.
Just because finding and exploiting a biased roulette wheel does not entail showing up at an office and punching a clock doesn’t mean it won’t work. Collecting the number of spins necessary to determine if there is a true biased wheel requires dedication, stamina and concentration. It isn’t mentally taxing or anything, but it can be very tedious.
I NEED MONEY AND I WANT TO WIN BUT I DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO RECORD ENOUGH DATA
If you were about to utter this, think first… you could ask someone to collect data for you for a flat fee or a percentage of the winning. Retirees, students, cocktail waitresses, etc. You have no idea how easy it would be to find a person to do this!
Tedious as it may be to collect, ACCURATE data is essential. If you have more than one casino in your town or if your local casino has more than one wheel - start with older wheels as they are more likely to be biased. Clocking four tables at a time is doable. Stick to two or three if the games are moving fast.
Again, use an ever-sharp pencil with an eraser. Do not use pen.
If the casino provides roulette score cards, use them. Some trackers have their own notepads and charts. Writing on the casino provided cards looks more natural and you won’t look quite as prepared or stick out like someone with his own.
If the casino doesn’t provide cards, just go to a nearby baccarat table and use one of their cards. You don't have to hide the fact you are gathering data. Casinos provide roulette wheels because they EXPECT gamblers to record numbers. Attempting to hide what you are doing will look much worse – even suspicious - than simply standing there writing down the numbers.
You should always ID the tables you keep track of. The best way is to use the numbers the casino itself uses to number them. You might find this number at the top of the electronic scoreboards. It may appear something like MC 101. (Monte Carlo 101). Or, you can usually find it on the limit sign or on a small plaque next to the drop box (where they stash the cash).
If there are no table numbers, then create it yourself. You could even draw a small sketch of the floor plan to label the table. DO NOT rely on your memory.
Look carefully at all of the wheels you are tracking and make detailed notes. Some casinos occasionally move their wheels from table to table and you want to be sure you are collecting data from the same wheel. Note any defects on the wheel, cigarette marks, scratches, cracks, etc.
If there are marks on the rotor, it is even better. The overwhelming majority of biases are caused by wear and/or defects on the rotor. It is possible, especially in European casinos, that casino employees might move rotors from one table to another without moving the wheel.
KNOW THE WHEEL AS IF IT WAS YOUR VERY OWN CAR OR SOMETHING YOU TREASURE DEEPLY
Your notes containing distinguishing marks should be kept in your pocket and out of sight of prying eyes.
If another player asks to see your card (which will happen at least once a day) he should see numbers only. You do NOT want him to see WHEEL 1: LOOSE FRET BETWEEN 3 AND 15, SCRATCH ABOVE NUMBER 20, ETC.
Today many casinos have electronic scoreboards that display the recent 15-20 numbers. It is possible for one person to keep track of 10 or 20 wheels at once (that is the purpose).
DON'T DO IT! Electronic devices aren’t always right and the ball may bounce in one slot so the board reads 12, but it lands in another. You don't need this inaccurate result and it could affect your record keeping.
It is possible (but not very likely) that you will find a wheel with an extreme bias. Of course, any bias that becomes obvious to you after 1000 spins may be just as obvious to other players.
Keep in mind, however, machines wear out unevenly. Even as you are taking data from a wheel, that wheel continues to wear. This means that any original bias may strengthen or weaken or disappear. It is the very physical law that provides exploitable biases in roulette wheels that can cause them to go away.
Fortunately, whatever forces are at work that cause roulette wheel biases tend to continue in the same direction (most get stronger over time).
You may want to start in older casinos preferably with single zero wheels as these may be more likely to be beatable. Double zero wheels can be biased too so don't rule them out. Most of the newer casinos probably have wheels that are in good shape. Sometimes though they put in an old wheel, so watch out for those too.
WHEEL CHARING INSTRUCTIONS
- ACCURACY: The information you will gather is only of use if it is ACCURATE. Begin by tracking one wheel at a time. Do not go to the casino to chart if you are tired. Do not drink the night before or while you are there. GET THAT ACCURATE DATA!
- DATA CARDS: You can usually find blank scorecards somewhere in the casinos. If they don't have any at roulette table, go to the baccarat table.
- CASINO HOURS: Not all are open 24 hours. You should indicate the operation hours on the card.
- ELECTRONIC SCOREBOARD: They aren’t always accurate so be careful. Also, a dealer may call out a number that is different than the board so watch out.
- MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM BETS: Always indicate the minimum bets and maximum bets on the scorecard. These can change day to day. During the week they make lower it on non-busy days, then raise them on busy holidays or weekends.
- TIME OF DAY: Log the time period and the day and date on each card.
- CURRENCY: Indicate whether the table is playing foreign money or US dollars.
- YOU ARE “ADOPTING” EACH WHEEL: You must become familiar with its wood grain and imperfections.
- ID NUMBER: You will almost always find an id number on the wheel. Write it down. If there is none, give it a number that you will remember for it.
- DEALER CHANGE: Indicate dealer change by putting a small line after the last number thrown by the previous dealer, and put their first name near the line.
Because of the travel expenses involved we can only play wheels that are seriously biased. We will take all the risk and play for you and give you 10 percent of the net winnings in cash on the spot.
If you find a wheel with a good player advantage and we are unable to play it for any reason, we can end you the numbers for you to play (you use your own money though).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BIASED WHEEL PLAY
Does biased wheel play work with 00 wheel?
Yes. If the wheel shows a bias, works for single zero too.
How many spins do I need to record before I know it is biased?
At least 1000 spins. If there is no promise after 1000 spins, we would wave you off of that wheel and say go find another.
How many spins a day will I be able to record?
You should be able to get about 200 spins per day (per wheel).
Do I need to be actually sitting at the table or just nearby?
Do NOT sit at the table, this may put some casinos on alert, but just be far enough where you can see where the ball lands so you can take accurate data. Do not have anything blocking the way and attract as little attention as possible.
Do I need to record spins in a row?
- As long as you make note of the wheel number and time of day you should be fine.
What if someone asks what I am doing?
Just say this:
- I am working on a system
- I am looking for “hot numbers”
- I am waiting for my favorite numbers to come up before I start playing.
These usually get a laugh out of that person and they walk off saying GOOD LUCK!
HOW DO I KNOW IF A WHEEL IS TRULY BIASED AND WHICH NUMBERS TO BET ON?
Any time you find a wheel where one or more numbers is coming up substantially more than once every 37 spins on a single zero wheel or more than once in 38 on a double zero wheel, on average, over several thousand spins - you are probably looking at a biased wheel.
Simply list the numbers down on a sheet of paper and put a “/” when the number comes up to see a chart of what numbers came up most like this.
[chart is not exactly like real spins, but shows how some numbers would show more than others and how you would be able to tell this would be a biased wheel]
Which numbers would you bet on? Obviously 12 and 21 as they are showing a distinct bias. 26 and 32 seem to be hitting more often then they normally should. The numbers 12 and 21 are hitting about twice as often as 32 and 26, however, so start by betting 2 units on each 12 and 21 and 1 unit each on 26 and 32.
(Keep charting and recording numbers and results as you go along. Look for any pattern changes at the end of each session. Adjust your bets accordingly.)
Always make flat bets when playing a biased wheel. Start out with the table minimum and stay there until you are substantially ahead. Only then should you increase the betting unit amount, always keeping in mind the 500 to 1 ratio of bankroll to betting.
A FEW MORE WORDS OF CAUTION: Sometimes your chart will start to look like the one above early on, maybe after a few hundred spins. You will need at least 2000 spins to determine if a wheel may be biased.
Do not delude yourself into thinking that you have found a biased wheel only after sampling less than 2 - 3 thousand spins. Anything less is not enough data.
It is entirely possible to have a “few runaway numbers” in a small sampling. What you are witnessing when this happens could be normal deviation (short-term trend) and not a biased wheel. You might be looking at a truly biased wheel but you will need more data to know for sure.
Very conservative and very knowledgeable biased wheel players will consider nothing less than 5,000 spins to determine if a wheel is TRULY biased.
Please note: Even if a wheel is biased, you could lose a small bankroll during slumps.
If you find a good wheel and we play it for you, usually with 100 dollar bets, you will be playing roulette with 10 dollars of someone else’s money (you get 10 percent).
