Are Roulette rigged?
Which Casinos Use rigged Roulette Wheels?
ALL THE ONLINE CASINO ARE RIGGED! I know, it is hard to believe that, but the games are following specific algorithms, and that algorithms are “rigged”, so as result – the game by itself is rigged. And, most probably, your question now is: “If the roulette is rigged, it is still possibile to win at?” and the answer is YES: if you understand how roulette is working, what is it algorithm and how it executes it – then I can guarantee that it is possible to BEAT it. For example, RouleGENIUS roulette software – has implemented a specific algorithm to study each roulette in part. As result – it is one of the best roulette predictors that guarantee winnings at roulette.
How Wheels are rigged?
There are many ways it can be done, but the simplest is for each pocket to have an electromagnetic magnet beneath the pockets surface. The ball itself is magnetised, with the north magnetic pole pointing outwards. If the casino operators wanted to avoid the ball landing on zero, the electromagnetic beneath the zero pocket is activated with the North Pole magnet. Because the ball has the same magnetic polarity, even if the ball comes close to 0, it will not stop at zero. This allows the casino to avoid highrollers from winning large bets.
An example of this kind of cheating wheel is shown in the below image.
How to know if your casino uses magnets
There is no way to know for sure without physically inspecting the wheel. But again I’ve never heard of it happening in a modern and regulated casino. It simply isn’t worth the risk to the casino, considering they already have a strong advantage over average players. The only incentive for a casino to use a magnetic cheating wheel, known as a gaffed wheel, is to avoid payouts for huge bets. So even if your local casino was applying this cheating technology, you would likely find it in VIP or highroller rooms.
I have been sent many videos from players who think particular spins are suspicious. These are cases where the ball does something quite odd. But so far in every case, the ball has not done anything out of the ordinary. I own several different wheels and have tested many variations of balls, and know very well the ball can sometime do some strange things. To know this for yourself, you simply need to see enough spins.
Do live online roulette casinos cheat?
Unfortunately many online casinos cheat at roulette, or at the very least deceive the players. One thing we found recently is that video footage of wheels is not live. Specifically a player found the same wheel spinning at different casinos, with the same game number, but with completely different spin outcomes. This made it very clear that the spins were not live. Interestingly though, it was the same wheel. The only thing that had changed is that the wheel had been recalibrated. This means that certain parts of the wheel were physically higher than others, resulting in a variation of dominant diamonds. Ultimately this is to change the patterns from the wheel. Often the video is changes, and the video feed is disrupted. The player just thinks the video temporarily lost connection.
In my view this is cheating, because the players are deliberately misled into believing that they are playing the same unmodified wheel, and with live video. But can anything be done about this legally? Very unlikely, especially considering most of the online casinos are operating from poorly regulated jurisdictions, where just about anything is legal.
If you are playing in an illegal casino, anything goes. But even in an illegal casino, the casino staff need the trust of players. For the average wheel with typical table limits, the casino is unlikely to use a roulette wheel with magnets. Although it is much more likely in a high roller room where the bets are much larger.
If you ever play at live online roulette, I suggest playing only at one of the casinos I recommend on my website. In my experience, approximately half of online casinos are dishonest in some way. Most often the problem is payout refusal with very poor excuses. But sometimes it is manipulation of video as explained. At least in many cases with live roulette, you are able to chat the dealer in real time. So give preference to these kind of casinos.
Also if you play at online casinos, remember to check the jurisdiction in which they operate. If they work from the middle of the Pacific Ocean or some obscure location, expect that they can do anything they want to take your money, and there’s nothing you can do about it. It is incredible how many times online casinos have simply stolen money in accounts from players, and given only vague and unjustified reasons. You would think they couldn’t get away with it, but international borders ensures they can. Play only in reputable casinos and you’re much more assured of having at least a chance of profiting.
