Air Ball Roulette
« on: April 17, 2014, 03:53:25 AM »
Can anyone share any experience playing air ball roulette?
It is a quicker game than traditional table-based roulette, so if there are good strategies, it should be fun and profitable.
But it seems trickier to play. Both ball speed and motor speed seem changing from spin to spin. VB doesn't seem to work well on this. I have a feeling that it might be manipulated by computer software or other ways.
Does anyone have any good or bad experience with this type of machine game?

Ive heard its as bad as RNG. Fixed. Connected to a computer and can hit wotever numbers they want which is why the ball speed varies. And they do this legally as long as they meet the minimum payout percentage.

Yes, the general consensus is that they are unreliable.

Would that "general consensus" be from people who have lost on airball roulette?

At one time we had air ball roulette at all three of my "local" (within 100 miles) casinos but two of them have already been removed, mainly due to lack of play.  The lack of play may have been caused by the unusually high minimums on it for the area.

I would hazard a guess as to the reasons for the slight variations in rotor speed to be able to counter those who use the various computers to time/track rotation.  Simple solution to a perceived problem.

I would drop in on the machines from time to time while waiting for the wife to finish whatever it is she does on the slot machines and it was a usually an enjoyable 10 minutes or so.  The differences in the rotor speeds were not noticible so for all practical purposes, it was a live wheel game with a timer set to launch.

Also, the lack of cheque handling was a big plus for me.

I think the general consensus is based on the "black box" way the machine operates. In traditional roulette you have a better understanding how  the game operates (the physical forces involved in the wheel and ball motion).
