I have one word for those thinking of exploiting biased wheels -- Argentina.

Roulette is huge in that country most casinos use gambling equipment that looks at least 20 years old.



I don't know about the regulatory environment there, but is it possible the casinos use the old equipment because it has been gaffed to allow manipulation by trusted Croupiers to guarantee winning sessions for the house?

Or if it's that "old school" / unregulated they know if you win they'll just show you this nice backroom that has no cameras...
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Modern roulette wheels in U.S. casinos are very low friction devices - and with such little drag the chance of there being any noticeable bias in where the ball drops is zero or near-zero.

I agree that old roulette wheels -especially cheap roulette wheels that have not been well-engineered, could possibly show some bias.

There is a casino game with a large tilted vertical wheel on a near-horizontal rotor - Wheel of Fortune? Wheel of Cash? As an engineer, if I was going to look for a rotational bias in a casino game, I would pick that device.

Biased wheels must be handle by actual APs.
It is not a simple job as adding 2+2.
There are huge varity of conditions to take in consideration.
Variability often cheat an amateur.
