Many will say that roulette is an unbeatable game, and even Albert Einstein claimed the only way to do so was to steal chips.
The reality is different, though, as there are certain strategies you can apply to actually beat the game. One of the ways you can do that is by using a technique called wheel clocking.
Once you master this technique, you’ll be able to track different factors in order to determine the section (or even the pocket) of the wheel where the ball will land. That way, you’ll also have the chance to claim lots of money.
But the problem is that wheel clocking is illegal. That poses an important question: is it worth the risk?
How Does Wheel Clocking Work?
Using wheel clocking takes several variables into account, such as the release point of the ball, its speed and the wheel revolutions. Some claim all these factors can be accounted for with the naked eye (although a trained one).
The first thing you need to do is count the number of revolutions the roulette wheel makes on average before the ball lands into a pocket.
You have to bear in mind that wheel clocking is not 100% accurate. However, you can make enough correct guesses to make some profits, no matter whether you’re playing online or at a land-based casino.
There are two ways to implement wheel clocking:
• by visually observing the roulette wheel
• or with the help of an electronic device
The first type involves watching the wheel and recording results in your head. It also includes “dealer signatures”, at least up to a point. Dealer signatures are patterns a croupier will commonly repeat. Such actions can allegedly improve the efficiency of wheel clocking. But the game of roulette is too random to rely solely on this factor, which can only produce short-term results.
Using concealed electronic devices is different, as this is the only reliable way to clock a roulette wheel. These contraptions calculate the speed of the ball and the wheel’s acceleration and deceleration. After all these variables are processed, the device will determine the approximate landing point. It may not be 100% accurate, but its predictions can guarantee wins in the long run.
Betting using the information provided by these devices can help you win money. All in all, electronic devices are the only way to get reliable wheel-clocking results.
Is It Legal?
Since electronic devices can accurately clock the wheel, using them is prohibited. Roulette computers are regarded the same as marking cards, stealing chips or any other method of cheating.
The legal consequences of using electronic devices for roulette wheel clocking deter players from using, although some are brave enough to try it. Some have even managed to win and not get caught, but make one wrong move, and you can end up behind bars.
In certain jurisdictions, these devices are legal, but that doesn’t mean the casino will allow you to use them. Keep in mind that casinos are private properties with their own rules.
