My question is, does this affect the odds of the game? since you can only possibly land on one of 4 cards, would that affect the odds of getting any particular number? or since a continuous shuffler delivers the cards, do the odds remain the same and is this just an inventive way of getting around the CA laws? Other tribal properties use cards but they have a 'wheel of fortune' style wheel with a card in each slot, so it is easy to see the odds would be the same. is this maybe a hard rock specific way of playing roulette? (the colors on the wheel are their theme colors, black, white, gold and magenta)
Since any particular color card has an equal chance of being any of the 38 numbers, the odds are the same as in regular roulette - any particular number has a 1/38 chance of coming up on a particular spin. Note that the number of spaces of each color do not have to be the same; the probability would be the same even if all of the spaces were the same color.
I am a little surprised such a new casino is allowed roulette; there was a period when "No roulette - not even electronic" was put into pretty much every new California tribal gaming compact (as well as "no craps that use actual dice in any way," but this casino has that as well).
Sorry, but I don't like being deceived particularly by Indian Tribes. If it ain't got no little white ball bouncing around a spinning wheel, don't call it roulette.Quote: nameremorse
The new HRC (Fire Mountain, a tribal property in CA) has a roulette table, and their version to get around the CA rules uses cards as seen in other tribal properties.

These odd rules and regulations would cause me to not bother playing at all.
