Thanks for the speedy helpful responses guys!
If rotor is 10 pockets per sec and changes to 8p/s.
Is this during the same spin or between spins?
Different spin , rotor doesn’t change so much during the single spin.
You need to understand when we adjust reference time it is adjusted based on rotor speed.
All changes make us errors, but reasonable errors can be tolerated.
Yes, if you do test and rotor is 4 sec /rotation and you find out that reference time is about 2 sec then all spins with about 4 sec rotor are ok.
When you play first you apply same time (2 sec) to see how many pockets rotor will make.
In such case (4s) it will make half turn.
If next spin it is about half rotation, you know it is reasonably constant. + or - 4 pockets is ok.
But you still need to make adjustment, if rotor instead of 18 pockets made 20. It is 2 pockets extra in 2 sec , or 1 p/s . So if remaining time to the end is 12 sec , you need to make about 1p/s x 12s=12 pockets adjustment in ball direction.
(there is an different approach , it needs lot of practise and observation. If for reference time I count fast 1,2,3…10…11…15 if rotor is about 2 pockets faster I may count instead from 1-15 , 1 to 17 , two extra counts gives me about 12 pockets adjustment, it also reduces previously described error.)
[b] So am I right in saying........as long as the rotor has a CONSTANT speed it will be fine, and that 4 seconds is the best time for the rotor speed to be constant?.....So even if its time is 3 seconds, as long as each rotation is 3 seconds it's fine? i.e as long as its constant.
Exactly, for 3 sec reference time will be a bit longer.
What I mean by our advantage is, what kind of strike right can we expect using it? 1 in 20? or.......?
As with any advantage play, I take ffz I am predicting spins after some time I exactly know when system will predict, in usual I can detect 100ms difference in ball speed. I do it at home and I always have something to remind me about right moment. I can go to casino , keep same accuracy 10 min and next 10 I can lose it and start playing against myself. I am trying to say it is impossible to know. Wheel may be hitting diamond 4/10 it may be 8/10 which is much better. We in usual look how well we can predict where on rotor ball drops. If we can get it reasonable we assume that on long run we have advantage and we do if ball jumps are manageable.
Roulette is dynamic game, success also depends on our ability spot differences and adopt.
From systems point of view there is no reason to not predict every spin spot on, but reality is not as that. In reality even with computer is not easy, VB is few steps behind, so it needs easier conditions.
Also are there any good long videos that I can practise on?
Only what is published at forums..youtube. Most people here have dvds with video, if someone close to you can send you one.
