Cause & Effect

Victor invited me to join this forum, and lend some of my insights into the physical nature of the same.  Go, here goes. . . .

First, I believe that only live roulette games can be beat.  Trying to beat any game based upon a Random Number Generator (RNG) is, in my opinion, an exercise in futility.

Roulette can be beaten because the game is played using a real wheel operated by a real dealer.  Both the wheel and the dealer can be flawed to an extent that the player can gain an edge.  For those of you new to roulette physics, there are four methods that have been used throughout the years to beat the game based upon the physics of the game:

1) Computers.  Computers take advantage of the fact that the motion of both the ball and the wheel conform to well known physics equations.  Given just a small amount of initial information - such as the speeds and relative positions of the ball and the wheel - the computer can solve these equations and predict - with stunning accuracy - exactly where the ball will strike the wheel.  However, the devil is in the details.  Computers are very difficult to implement because a) they are unwelcome at best and illegal at worst, b) the modern low profile wheels tend to randomize the scatter of the ball once it strikes the wheel, and c) unless you really know what you are doing you can find yourself betting into a huge negative edge with a computer.
