The way this machine works at Plain Ridge, it pauses after the ball has landed, and it takes several seconds to add the wins to the balance. ( During that time you can not bet). Then a 30 second countdown starts and at the same time the wheel starts turning ( I didn't make a point to see if the ball is released when the wheel starts turning or released sometime during the 30 sec. betting time)
But I am pretty sure that during the 30 second betting time allowed, the wheel is turning.
Meaning you can only bet while the wheel is turning.
But I will make sure about that next time. Min. bets are 50 cents, and outside bets min. $5.
Total max. bet $4,000
I also noticed that some consoles, did not record all the numbers. They hold about 35 numbers and on the overhead display they have the last 18 numbers. When I saw that the 18 numbers on the big display did not match the last 18 on the console, I was surprised. They also have 10-20-30. I thought that those were spun numbers, bur they were 10 spin markers to make it easy for back counting.
