we dont have table games here in pittsburgh yet, we have the video roulette where there is a video roulette wheel in the middle on a tv screen and seats all around with individual play stations.

maybe im paranoid but im always worried about games like this, and how legitimately random it can be, and not somehow programmed on what to pay off on based on the current bets.

does anyone have any info on the video roulette and how it all works? thanks.

its rigged but the good news is the number 9 comes up more often than you should so if you play, just go with 9 and you will make a lot.

I played Roulette on Bodog a few years ago, I usually just play the outside. The way I play is if a black or even number etc comes up more than 3 times in a row I start playing the opposite, when in reality I should probably ride the wave. Well I went broke after playing for an hour or so as the roulette wheel landed on Black 18 times in a row and the last 12 of those blacks were even numbers. Ive never seen such a thing. At a casino Ive never seen a black or red show up on a table more than 10 times in a row, that happened once, most of the time I never see more than 6 in a row of something. But yeah its rigged.

i'm guessing it works just like any slot machine works -- a random number generator to determine the outcome of the spin. And just like slot machines, video poker, etc. the casino has to answer to some sort of governing body to prove total randomness and disprove rigged-ness. Though, be careful, there are a lot of Indian casinos that have to answer to nobody and could set their machines to be as un-random as they want. I would check to see if the particular casino has a governing body they have to answer to (similar to the casinos in Nevada and the Nevada Gaming Commission) if you want to feel safe about your bets.

As always, if you don't feel comfortable about the fairness of the game, just don't play.

you really should get the idea out of your head that a device producing independing outcomes can be streaky. Red can come 198329187 times in a row and the odds of the next roll being Red is still 50/50 (ignoring greens for math simplicity).

Get this through your heads people -- no matter where you place your chips on the table and what has happened prior to you placing your chips on the table, the house will always have a 5.26% advantage on every single chip on their double-green 0/00 table!

(ignoring the 0/00/1/2/3 split bet, which is 7.89%)
