Can Experienced Roulette Dealers actually drop the ball into Number-Zones on their Wheels?

Can he do it?
We all know about the armies of wheel-clockers out there looking to gauge the revolutions and speed of the spinning ball in order to get a good idea of which 6-number-zone the ball will drop and land in.

But what about this from roulette dealers' point of view? Can a dealer help out, either knowingly or unknowingly?

I just got an email from a guy who swears he's onto a cheat scam going on in England with a roulette dealer and his agents, whereby the dealer is aiming at quadrants of numbers on the roulette wheel--and is hitting them with a surprising degree of accuracy. He says that when working with quadrants of 6 numbers, the dealer is hitting that quadrant consistently one in four spins, sometimes one in three.

Suffice it to say, that's pretty damn good--IF it's indeed true.

Normally, I dismiss these claims and get back to my ball game. I even wrote to the guy who told me about this dealer, "Why are you telling me this? If you're on to something that strong, you should be playing that dealer's wheel! Regardless whether he's on to you playing it or not!"

But strangely enough, I have been getting lots of emails on this subject lately, some from roulette dealers themselves testifying that they can beat their own wheels by steering the ball's drop into a number-quadrant.

Well, I am changing my attitude a bit on this. I had long been stubbornly opposed to claims of dealers controlling roulette balls as I had been to craps-shooters controlling rolls of the dice. But times are changing, and with all the high-tech apps out there, who scan say that roulette dealers and wheel-clockers from the outside cannot configure a way to control ball-drops--at least to some point.

Well, I still remain somwhat skeptical but as well equally curious,

And that's where you come in!

So if you hear or have first-hand knowledge about the subject, please pass it on to me.

Worldwide Baccarat Cheating Wave Continues

Another foxy baccarat cheat
It seems that each time we hear of a major casino baccarat cheating scam, a few more pop up on its heels. And besides them, there are the mid-level and low-level baccarat scams, the high-tech and the low-tech baccarat scams...or just plain and simple: BACCARAT SCAMS!

No doubt that the popular game and its classy ambience, long the casino favorite of two of the world's most dashing gamblers, James Bond and Omar Sharif, is just irresistable to all classes of casino cheats...from Singapore to Canada and beyond.

I get wind of all the baccarat scams and write about the ones I find either most interesting or most ridiculous.

Of course the multi-million-dollar baccarat edge-sorting scam carried out by World Series of Poker champion and recent Casino Cheats Hall of Fame inductee Phil Ivey is one of the interesting ones.

One of the more ridiculous ones was carried out last February at the River Rock Casino in Vancouver, Canada, by Thi Lien Chu, a very attractive 44-year-old Asian woman who uses her hands a lot as a professional esthetician.

And she was using her hands a lot at Richmond's River Rock Casino as well!

Believe it or not, her scam was simply sliding her bets from the losing side to the winning side after the hands played out. When she bet "player" and "banker" won, she switched her chips from player to banker--and repeatedly did the same when her losing  bet was on banker...all right in front of the dealer whom she managed to distract (I don't know how!).

Though this move if reminiscent of the classic roulette slide-move done by generations of Italian roulette casino cheats, I doubt Ms. Chu's skills in any way matched theirs.

But she did get away with it and earned several thousand dollars before her "casino-beauty" luck ran out.

Ms. Chu told the judge that she was desperate because her esthetics business was failing (despite that she'd been implicated in some other petty casino scams), and the judge must have been impressed by either her excuse or her esthetics--he gave her a year of community service.

Finding Biased Live Online Roulette Wheels to Cheat Casinos Online?

Can it be clocked?
The mass expansion of live online blackjack and live online roulette has created new opportunites for traditional online players, but has it also created new opportunities for traditional brick and mortar casino cheats?

Yes it has!

But calm down a bit! It has created some online casino cheat opportunities but they are very few and very far between.

As both live blackjack and live roulette do not use random number generators but rather real human dealers who deal real cards and spin real roulette balls, the games they deal are indeed open to cheating vulnerabilities. But it is not the human factor that is the chief vulnerability.

It is the equipment used by live online blackjack and live online roulette.

In live online roulette, the dealers are spinning real roulette balls on real roulette wheels,so we can make one logical conclusion: If biased wheels can be found in use inside brick and mortar casinos, they can also be found in live online roulette games, therefore if a roulette clocker wants to come in from the cold of outside brick and mortar casinos and ply his craft to the warmer roulette wheels online, he's got tons of live online roulette wheels to clock.

But the problem for him is that, just like in brick and mortar casinos, biased wheels with enough of a bias to make clocking them profitable are very VERY hard to find. I would think that live online casinos are even more wary of this and thus have their live online roulette wheels checked and rechecked and re-rechecked.

So the bottom line is: Finding live online roulette wheels to clock is extremely tough--but they are out there!
