Roulette wheel spin protocol
« on: November 16, 2017, 07:52:42 PM »
How many players know about roulette wheel spin protocol? If you do and the croupier breaks protocol; do you bring it to the attention of the pit boss?

Roulette wheel spin protocol is a set of rules that differs from casino to casino around the world. Croupiers must stick to the protocol as far as I know but this isn't always the case.

Spin protocol will determine spin direction and the point from where the ball is launched. Some will launch/release the ball from zero (European wheel) while most launch/release the ball from the last hit number.

For the air ball players: Have you noticed the number directly at the point where the ball enters the wheel; Is it the last hit number?

What spin protocol exists for the American double zero wheel?

For visual ballistic players: How important is spin protocol to your approach?

If you bet before the spin, then yes, looking such things may help.... but if you bet after ball is thrown..  who cares , really?
   These things happen on autoroulettes. Nice observation!!! If you did it by yourself, consider my vb school ... ;).

Placing your bet after the ball is released confirms consistently in the croupiers actions and in most cases there is enough time to place all bets. If the croupier is not consistent you can adjust your bet/bets to compensate for the discrepancy or you can choose not to bet on that spin.

I once witnessed a player arguing with the croupier about not releasing the ball from the last hit number and I used simple maths to put one and one together.

I'm always open to learning more about roulette and I may consider doing a vb course at some time.

From my observations, spin protocol is broadly adhered to in most sanctioned (govt. licensed) B&M casinos. Where the ball direction is reversed for each subsequent spin, the release point being (at best) an approximation of its prior rest point.
Only once in many years, have I seen, the ball AND the ROTOR, spun in the same direction.
The result was disruptive confusion, as the (inexperienced) croupier was verbally chastised from all players.
The inspector rushed back to his post, where he should have been already, and called "NoSpin!" Too late, the ball had come to rest.
Players who (accidentally or purposefully tried to take advantage of the situation) expected a winning result, were furious that no payout was given, the croupier was emotionally overcome (weeping) and was replaced, the result was declared void, and from the players point of view, the incident was a MULTIPLE BREACH of PROTOCOL & PROCEDURES.
Which of course, it was!
Given this scenario, why did the breach occur?
In a cascading abrogation of responsibility, the fault here lies with the PIT BOSS.

 MickyP,  the thing is... if spins are relatively short and rotor is well maintained  ( do not ask populate on this one), -/+ 1 revolution of ball do not really make a big difference. 
    In such a case you could ( with some patience) to find opportunity to bet before spin.
  Dealer signature can be good weapon in professional hands..  for both sides of table.
   After jafco released his dealer signature material, there surged many of ds players and dealers who can do it.... especially online.
    It's not that reading that book will make you ds player, but it may provide you a door  to some ideas that are essential for such play.
     BTW. .  Not long ego l used to argue about these things as well ;). I was 2-3 years back then..  l was playing fairway casino and ds was only opportunity to win. ...

Fyodor, thanks for sharing. An interesting story about the same direction spin and the call of "No Spin" by the pit boss.

I've only ever played roulette in my country and that's why I asked the question. It's all a learning curve.

MrPerfect, your guidance is appreciated. As a player looking to improve my game I have picked up so much valuable info on the forum so far.
