ANYONE TRACKING ROULETTE IN CONNECTICUT?
I am skeptical that double-zero roulette can be beaten--even with a "biased" wheel--but number-crunching is my hobby so I will be writing down the numbers that come up in Connecticut and see what I can see. If anyone else would care to join me---or perchance already has a Connecticut roulette log---then we can get a lot more data in a lot less time.
P.S. I just got back from the roulette forum at http://www.rouletteclub.com and here are my impressions:
1. I got there by searching "wheel tracking" at Google.com, and saw something about "signature tracking." I didn't know what this was, so I searched "signature tracking" and that was how I got here. Thanks to the fellow who makes those "devices" and gives a nice explanation. It looks fun and if you already are a player, probably will help your chances, but I don't think it is your best bet.
2. The two best systems described there are, in my view, the "shower system" and the one that suggests a win-progression while betting on 2 of the 1/3-the-wheel bets. Fun by by no means foolproof.
3. I am shocked that so many people seem to consider Labouchere, Oscar's Grind, and such variations for American roulette, where your loss expectation is 1 per 18. Go to a craps table, you fools, where the loss is 1 per 70. There you have half a chance.
4. As for win-progressions: multiple wins on red vs. black do seem to be more common in roulette than craps. But I do suggest using single-zero roulette by playing online. I am having fair success right now at http://www.mapau.com This has an "honesty" certificate from Gambling.com. I do not in fact think that their Blackjack is honest, because I tried counting the cards and the count kept going up-up-up. This means a "stacked deck." But roulette is not so easy to "fix." For the first few hours, by the way, I got four times as many zeros as any other number. So when you start, I suggest you bet on zero--just in case the "starting play" tends to be the same. As the table warms up, however, this evens out as one would expect, and the overall results seem quite random.
Anyway, if anyone here goes to Foxwoods or Mohegan regularly, I invite you to join me in tracking the roulette wheels, and share data. Please reply here and I will be notified.
