So I've been going to the RWC in Queens, NY for a couple of months now and I usually play the 50c or the $1 video roulette. Even through the software is video/electronic, the ball spin used to be an mechanical spin in the middle with no dealer. (see relevant pic:There are other types of video screen spins at RWC (pretty similar to online gaming at that point).

However, There is only one 50 cent roulette table as described above (min $5). The rest are $1+ (min $10). Last night I went there, and low and behold, the real spin has been removed from the middle and replaced with a video/electronic spin for the 50c table. Call me a cynic, but that screams rigging to me (or at least lowering the payout odds somehow). I asked a couple of reps walking around why they would remove the real spin and replace it and they told me they couldn't explain it and weren't sure. I said "it's not like you put new betting screens or anything. That area is sealed off". No response.

Are their any casino's in AC maybe or Vegas that have 50c roulette with video software, but an actual spin with no dealer?
What do you think of the above? Interested in getting some view points. After all, i signed up just for this :D.

Don't kid yourself, the real wheel on those setups is
run by a computer and an algorithm just like video
spin is. Its a glorified slot machine, it pays just like the
same. You aren't playing roulette at all.

In 7 visits, I came up up winning 6 times, 1.5x original deposit playing the same strategy. It just didn't seem as "computerized" as the on-screen one. Wheel keep spinning the whole time and that helps.

I seen one of these at GoldStrike in Tunica. I don't really see how it couldn't be random. The wheel never stopped spinning as you described. Everything about it was just like a regular roulette wheel except the ball was released computerized instead of manually.

Exactly. That's why I trusted it more than the screen. I like this format. Too bad it's gone now. It was the first time I'd seen one for 50 cent bet and 5$ minimum... and the last time since it got removed :P
