These roulette notes are intended to offer player information for roulette system players of all standards.  If you want to win at roulette or are already winning at roulette then there will be plenty of roulette tips to match your game style.



30 years of playing and researching roulette has taken me from the initial learning of how to win at roulette through to discovering the larger and more significant dimension of the game that involves the external and mysterious aspects of roulette, such as temperature, pressure, weather and gravity.


Professional Roulette Play


Professional roulette is about playing in comfort and knowing for sure that the chosen method for roulette play has been fully tested in advance and already proven to show a long term winning roulette margin. Casinos are not the place for practice! 

One of the frustrations of pro-roulette play is that all wheels have their own unique characteristics, known generally as “roulette wheel signature” and they will each offer up a wide variety of margin levels. The reason this can be an issue is that the player never actually knows the precise margin at any given time and this is even more tricky when it comes to the lower winning margins which are worth playing but harder to exactly asses how good they are. 

You can imagine how straight forward it would be if the precise winning margin was known, and by that I don’t mean guaranteed winners or anything but just the true winning edge. If I said I would pay 7 to 1 each time you throw a six on a dice you would make money with certainty and apart from some unlucky periods you could accurately predict the level of money that you would make in the long term. This gives the player immense confidence. 

We don’t have this luxury when playing roulette except to an extent when playing the biased number system which would also result in a more predictable way. 

The reality is that paying 7 to 1 on a dice may look good but it is a margin level below that which can be achieved on some roulette wheels. So, for the professional roulette player one of the first skills is being good at assessing the roulette wheel signature and estimating the margin level at any given time. Doing this well will help when it comes to devising the best roulette betting strategy and bet size that most suits the situation in hand.



Roulette Systems That Work

Apart from playing biased roulette numbers, it is my view that the only roulette systems that can work are those that give primary consideration to the action of the roulette ball. In roulette the ball is king because the moving roulette wheel can be easily assessed using simple mathematics but all the rest of the roulette science and especially the physics relates to the ball action and how it may skid, roll, spin, run long, run short etc etc.


With biased number play the most significant factor is usually something like a broken or cracked pocket Fret and although there are many reasons why a number or sector of numbers may become biased the important point is that as a system it relies purely on a fault in the roulette wheel and hardly at all on the way the roulette ball orbits, spins or bounces. For these reasons this workable and winning method of playing roulette stands separated from all other roulette systems that work in that it is the only one that does not depend on the external conditions that affect the physical behaviour of the roulette ball.

 Quick Tips for Biased Roulette Numbers


1. Remember to log and separate the number data for each direction of the wheel. It is quite unlikely that a fault in the wheel will present itself in the same way for both wheel directions.


2. It is important to chart the look of the roulette wheel in terms of distinguishing marks and scratches. This way you can always track the movement or twists of any wheel that you know. It is very reassuring to know that the number data is accurate and that time is not being wasted by mixing data between two or more wheels.


3. The level at which a number may be considered biased is debatable but having researched this over the years I would advise that the thresholds shown below are widely considered as reasonable.


                       1000 spins    number occurrence required 40

                       3000 spins    number occurrence required 103

                       5000 spins    number occurrence required 162


4. Once a player has located a biased number, he is then faced with an important decision as to what strategy to apply. This will mainly depend on the level of bias and the situation. If for instance you find a medium biased wheel at your local casino then a long term and unnoticeable strategy may be the best. If however you found something powerful whilst travelling then a fairly sizable strike may be the order of the day!


5. Last but certainly not least, it is worth pointing out that with advances in technology it has become harder to find such wheels, though there are still plenty around. The key therefore to playing this system in the modern day is to know how to spot these biased numbers extra fast and without having to collect anything like the amount of data in the traditional way, as shown above. I can’t publish this extra information for obvious reasons but can make it available to customers.


In my view this is more of a bonus system worth knowing about and being prepared for when you come across such a wheel whilst continuing to play the Jafco roulette systems, which focus on a far more modern and lesser known type of wheel bias.



Visual and Mechanical Roulette Systems


As soon as the visual or mechanical roulette system player discovers the winning way to beat roulette they just as soon realize that a perfect betting position one day may well not be such a perfect position by the next day or even the next hour. The simple fact is that the result of a roulette ball spin will almost entirely depend on the behaviour of the roulette ball which is changing all the time. A slight rise in temperature will be enough to make the ball run longer. 

With such a variety of roulette playing conditions available it is easy to understand that to ignore the roulette ball’s changing action would be a roulette system suicide and why It is my view that not only do all winning systems need to consider the roulette ball activity but that they also have no hope of working without doing so. 

The visual and mechanical roulette systems are both based on all the same principles and secrets of the roulette game. Each style has its own unique advantages but as one might expect the higher roulette margin potential will always be obtained mechanically owing to the obvious increases in accuracy.  

Top class roulette systems will expose the hot betting areas on wheels based on the interaction of the landing pins, the roulette rota speed and the all important conditions that affect the spinning roulette ball.


 Roulette Dealer’s Ball Release Action

The roulette croupier will throw the ball using either a forward push with one finger behind the ball or with what we call a flick spin with two fingers behind the ball and flicking the fingers to release it, often resulting in additional ball spin. 

The flick throwing of a roulette ball is used far less commonly these days, probably because it is harder to do and is therefore taught less often. If you have the choice, you will almost certainly be better off in the long term playing more of the forward push style spins.

The roulette dealer also controls how much force they apply to any individual throw. If they are one of those dealers that tends to operate on “auto pilot” they will be preferable in that a repetitive throw adds to the reliability of the best betting position. As we pick up the spin after the throw we can naturally adjust for the dealer who likes to vary the ball throw more and this simply requires accurate measurement and awareness.



Roulette Ball Spin Action


Where and how the ball lands will mainly depend on the speed of the ball and even more significantly, the way in which the roulette ball is spinning or rolling . 

If we put some spin on a tennis ball we know that it will deflect away at a different angle when it lands and this action is exactly the same when a spinning roulette ball makes contact with one of the landing pins (diamonds). 

The natural conclusion of this information is that when the ball has excessive spin on landing the potential for repetitive roulette will be greatly reduced during these periods. 

The roulette ball will start its journey with a combination of skidding and spinning. As the ball decelerates it will convert its spin energy into orbit energy, a more comfortable and rolling state. This conversion, which I call ‘the roulette ball release’ can occur quite early in the spin, late in the spin or it can fail to convert in full ~ even not at all !  It is also know by other roulette professionals as the knee point. I call it a release point as this is how it both looks and sounds. 

 Surrounding the ball is a molecular sized band of air known as the Boundary Layer. This is why the ball is not technically rolling on the wooden roulette ball track but is in reality surrounded by moving layer or air. 

If and when The Boundary Layer becomes turbulent then all hell breaks loose and the ball will be far less able to convert its spin energy before it lands.  

The level of boundary layer disturbance will vary from one period to another and when it is strongly turbulent the ball will arrive fizzing with spin and ready to fly off the landing diamond, ending up in a far less predictable area of the roulette wheel. 

When the Boundary layer is calm the roulette ball will end its spin with a more noticeable rolling action, a slower speed and ending with what we call ‘ a dead ball’ bounce where the roulette ball hits the pin with little speed and no spin and just dies into the pocket, under or around the pin. This is certainly what we would describe as good condition,s though there are other very playable ball states as well.

Roulette balls can also be affected by drag spin and depending how this occurs, it will either be perfect for playing or equally as bad for playing.

 Ballistics science shows us how a projectile is affected by the state of the air that it travels through. As the air density and more specifically the viscosity of the air changes it will offer up varying levels of drag friction.

When the ball is affected by drag spin the roulette system professional will notice a ball that spins around very fast and then appear to suddenly apply its breaks. The ball comes to rest far quicker than normal and will then dive into the nearest pocket possible on landing.  The good part to drag spin is down to the fact that these types of spins tend to land with a very short bounce, offering the pro roulette player increased control on his betting position which is always most accurate when able to aim right under the pin. 

The bad part to drag spin is when the conditions are mixed with only some ball spins being affected by drag. This causes big problems when assessing the ball speed and more problems when it comes to predicting the bounce. It is during these mixed up conditions that the pro roulette player should hold back from getting unnecessarily involved. 

There are many other types of ball action which are easily recognizable to the Jafco roulette players, who all have a system where the betting position is instantly movable to match the changing conditions of the roulette ball.



Roulette Playing Conditions


With so many different roulette ball behaviours it is clear that a number of precautions should always be taken by the roulette-pro.

1. The system player should always take time to view the general action of the ball before choosing to play. There are also other factors to consider before playing roulette, including the type of roulette wheel and croupier, but most significantly the roulette pro needs to focus on the state of the roulette ball and how it is spinning, rolling and bouncing. If in doubt then stay out and wait for the period to calm down, as it always will eventually


2. With there being good periods and bad periods for playing roulette it is clear that one key factor is to bet the vast majority of the money during the best periods and save the bets when it’s bad conditions for play. This is where the true meaning of the expression `Roulette bet Pressing’ came from, when a few very good players in the early years of the game noticed this phenomena and played to it, giving other non system players the false impression that the key to winning at roulette was to simply press when one is winnin,g which in normal playing terms would be fairly disastrous.


If you have a good system then press the bets when the conditions are at their best and bet less or not at all when they are bad. If this is done wisely it will add much to your normal roulette playing edge.


3. Casinos have counter measures against good players and are frequently twisting and swapping roulette wheels around and it is the roulette pro who will have it all checked out and keeping one step ahead of the game in hand.


When all the right playing conditions come together, we can then win a month of money in 30 minutes.
