Title: PORTABLE SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR IDENTIFYING ROULETTE WHEEL BIASES
Abstract:
A portable system and method for identifying roulette wheel biases includes a frame member rotatably attachable to a roulette wheel proximate a turret support, a ball- drop tube slidably engaged to the frame member and a laser positioned to measure at least a bounce height of a roulette ball dropped through the ball-drop tube onto selective areas of the roulette wheel. One or more sensors may be positioned to trigger the laser responsive to a roulette ball being dropped through said ball-drop tube. Software analyzes the bounce height to determine dead spots and hot spots on the roulette wheel. Sound waves may also be measured to determine dead spots and hot spots.
