Is electronic roulette rigged? Online casinos, often take advantage of the lack of supervision and inspection from law and gambling authorities and take the money of their customers with unfair games.
It is really funny that various outrageous results and events are “explained” by the “laws of physics” and covered up by the inherent unpredictability of a random game. “Yes, the ball can take strange twists just before it lands on a numbers, it’s physics” they explain. They take your money blatantly and if you complain they look you in the face and claim that: “No it’s not suspicious that you lose again and again forever. According to probability it’s perfectly normal”.
Rigged roulette wheels are a reality, though to what extend they are used is an issue of great debate. Player beware. Just try to take the ball from a roulette wheel casino and see what happens. They will get after you like you are the worst criminal. They don’t want to you to take their balls and test them (test what they are made of).
In 1997, high roller roulette player Lefteris Tsokataridis was playing at the reputable land casino Regency Casino in Thessaloniki, Greece. He was betting all night at number 29 huge amounts and losing big. When, after many hours, the ball landed at 29 and then inexplicably jumped to nearby number 18, he took the two balls from the wheel (small and big balls, one playing and one resting on top of the wheel) and started running.
After a crazy chase between him and casino staff, he took the roulette balls to the District Attorney for investigation of possible fraud. The casino pursued him like there’s no tomorrow. A meeting between the player and casino officials has been arranged. After a while the story vanished and Tsokataridis retracted his lawsuit and investigation request. None ever heard of this case again. Your guess at what happened is as good as mine, but there are rumors that the casino has paid a large amount to get the roulette ball back and avoid exposure and a possible scandal.
The Video in the start of this article is a perfect example of electrostatic repulsion method.
Roulette balls are made of piezoelectric ceramic. The material used is BaTiO3 on the surface, and BaSO4 on the inside for insulation. The ball caries a polarized surface charge when hit by an ultrasonic sound wave. This wave is sent from the inter-digital transducers placed in the spoons (pockets) of each number. They send a wave to the ball that polarizes the surface with a negative charge. The spoon of the number is also negative, therefore the ball jumps out through electrostatic repulsion (see also Patent US9114940 ).
Each number pocket has a switch which is controlled by a transistor called IGBT. This transistor turns on the switch so that the spoon in negatively charged. The casino leaves the pockets that it wants the ball to go in neutral, or switch off.
Our roulette expert tells us: “I have such a piezoelectric roulette ball in my possession along with University tests done on it and I can show them to anyone interested. Many casinos in the world are now using this method to cheat players and as a “security measure” against high rollers.”

With three reading sensors discreetly embedded in the rim, the Saturn™ Roulette Wheel detects accurate winning numbers, fast. It also features ‘Drop Zone Detection’, which reports on non-random results and drop zone bias caused by inaccurate balancing, table movement or fraudulent wheel manipulation. In addition, the Saturn Roulette Wheel is available with a ball track inclinometer, delivering real-time security enhancements and abnormal event detection. This alleviates the need for daily leveling of wheels by maintenance staff and allows Dealers to check wheel integrity at the start of a shift.
Imagine a electronically controlled mechanism below the wheel, that can very slightly change the leveling of the wheel. This can actually have a dramatic effect in the outcomes of the roulette. See for example this Patent for a Roulette wheel equipped with an electronic control system.
Intensive sound waves with ultrasonic frequencies, that can not be heard by the human ear, can be used to push the the roulette ball before or while it lands on a number. Here's how it works:
This roulette wheel comes from a private club in Italy, where a fraud took place. None really knows if the club owners were ever arrested, but the wheel suddenly appeared on ebay in the UK. It has small electromagnets under each pocket of the wheel-track and probably there will be a special ball type with a metal core going with the thing.
Except electromagnets, other invisible ways to control the outcome of the game that have been put to “good” use including acoustic levitation and leveling.
