This is exactly what the Wizard has described in his Gambling 102 book on page 12-13.Quote: uofmken
I was at Planet Hollywood in Vegas observing this game and noticed that one of the busty female croups had a pretty consistent spin. When she would spin with her right hand, it was fairly consistently three revolutions, and with the left it was 2.5.
Now I realize the Joker bet is one of the worst overall bets in gambling, (house edge of 24%) but if only betting on the Jokers, and if you can fairly consistently "guess" which half of the board the spin will land on, doesn't this push the Joker odds greatly in your favor?
unfamiliar with this game exactly,
#1 why do you have to pick the worst bet?
It's the only one that's not distributed equally around the wheel. If you know which half of the wheel will appear (27 spots) then getting paid 40-to-1 on one of them is in your favor. All of the other bets are not meaningfully biased from a position standpoint -- you'd need to predict more accurately than "half-wheel" in order to profit from them.
You're not clocking the spin exactly.Quote: Ayecarumba
But if you can clock the croupier (is this the correct name for the person working the wheel?) to 2.5 or 3.0 revolutions, can money still be made on the $20, or even the $5, (assuming that is directly opposite or where the wheel currently rests? I imagine with 2.5 or 3.0 consistency, you can narrow the outcomes to perhaps four or five possibilities.
