In 200 years, the basic game of roulette has not changed; however with the advances in mobile hand held technology, there is a growing threat to the traditional live game. The Mercury 360 RRC (Random Rotor Control) is an innovation to counter this.
There have been a number of high profile cases of â€˜advantage play’, whereby players using mobile handheld electronic devises’lock’ the ball and rotor speeds to predict either the winning or losing sectors of a roulette wheel, thus obtaining a significant advantage over the house.
To address this potential security risk, the Random Rotor Control (RRC) feature, also used in our automatic wheel; Slingshot 2, randomly changes the speed of the rotor during the game, thus changing one of the variables the electronic devices use to predict the game outcome.
The videos below show the Random Rotor Control feature in action - both for rotor deceleration and “acceleration”. In each video, the same wheel is spun twice at 20 rpm. The RRC feature is switched off for the left-hand spin and switched on for the right. As a result, the RRC-enabled wheel has a different outcome to what it would otherwise have been. In the deceleration example (left video), the ball lands in pocket 20 where it would have landed in pocket 4. In the acceleration video (right), it lands in pocket 9 where it would have landed in pocket 36. This imperceptible change to the rotor speed introduces an unprecedented layer of security, neutralizing the growing advances in mobile technology and, in this case, removing the security risk to the live game of roulette.
The patented RRC innovation is designed specifically for the On-Line Gaming sector where a growing number of on-line casinos are using live roulette wheels with live video feeds of the game. Unsupervised on-line players are free to use whatever electronic devises they may have to predict the outcome of the game. To counter this, on-line casinos often call â€˜no more bets’ at ball launch, cutting into their productivity. With RRC running, they are free to call â€˜no more bets’ at the normal time, thus increasing the number of bets received during a game and in turn dramatically improving productivity - in the case of our customer, Evolution Gaming, by 20%.
Moreover, a number of on-line casino providers are inviting casinos to adopt their live gaming facilities as part of their on-line gaming offer. The concept being that live casinos can retain their player activity when the player has left the casino and returned home. The player can continue to play at the same casino table, but now in the comfort of their own home. In this case, where the casino is concurrently serving their live and on-line customers, it would be sensible that the live casino use Mercury 360 RRC wheels on their live tables.
The Mercury 360 RRC looks identical to the standard Mercury 360 wheel.
The RRC mechanism is totally discreet; inaudible with imperceptible changes in rotor speeds.
The wheel bearing is maintenance free for life.
