Roulette Computers

I have some interesting news on the world of roulette computers being used to beat roulette in brick and mortar casinos. But before we get to that, here's what's going on in the mainstream:

Firstly, the war over selling roulette computers online continues between Stefano Hourmouzis and Mark Howe, among others rapidly entering the scene. There is still the constant barrage of accusations, warnings and even satellite photos on the Internet with one guy showing where the other lives in an effort to show how he's fallen on rough times. In fact, another online roulette computer seller recently threatened me because he wasn't satisfied with my evaluation of his equipment, although I had thought it was rather favorable. He said he was going to sue me for libel and attack my reputation. This mess has gone so far that now you can't even trust the roulette computer review sites, those that do not sell equipment but give their advice on its effectiveness after claiming to have thoroughly examined the equipment they're reporting on. You don't know who is behind or backing these sites or what to believe, and I would surely place much less faith in them than the reputable online poker portals out there. Even when one roulette computer reviewing site posts documentation for or against a particular computer or piece of equipment, the other will show you how that documentation is faulty, based on the levelness of roulette wheels that it was tested on or just about anything else that can be found to contradict it. So in short, you can't much trust these roulette computer "portals" either. In my opinion, as I have said before, some of these online computers costing a few thousand bucks or quid are effective in some ways, but unless you really know what you're doing in the casinos, you won't have much success.

Now for some real news: I have just received information that a major roulette device cheating team has been apprehended in Russia. I do know which casino this happened at but I have been told by someone whose info has always been reliable that it was some serious high-tech non-laser equipment that did not involve the use of cell phones, and it was supposedly much more sophisticated than the London Ritz scammers' equipment back in 2004, which of course it should be. I have ideas what the equipment entailed but I do not want to report on it before I get more from the source. It also seems that the casino was alerted to the team by an unhappy person either affiliated with the team or formerly affiliated with the team. Could be a jilted girlfriend or something like that.

As far as getting caught in Russia, I don't know what the laws are over there concerning gambling devices in casinos. I never cheated a Russian casino, and I surely hope for these guys that the punishment is not a free meal--laced with polonium-210!
