[quote=“upiwaly, post:5, topic:289”]Of course. It does not matter where one play.
The same wheel in totaly different casino will probably have very similar scater. That is my point - to take picture, or to find the apropriate one on the internet and describe the behaviour of the ball when it hits rotor.[/quote]
Firstly, I think that photography is generally not allowed inside casinos.
Secondly, for sure many factors depend on the type of the wheel. The slope angle between the ball and the diamonds affect the speed with which it will hit its diamond, and thus how far it will jump. The shape of the diamonds also influence that jump. Sometimes horisontal diamonds are placed as high as the top of the vertical diamonds, allowing for not only four, but 8 or even 16 potentially dominant diamonds (whether that is better or worse, I think has been under debate here). Of course the shape of the rotor affects how much the ball will bounce on it and so on and on and on.
But ball type and rotor speed are still extremely important for scatter. Even the degree of tilt should affect scatter. Those factors are individual for each table. And, after all, it isn’t too difficult to see how the scatter looks like “here and now” after a few spins. Data from other casinos at other times with similiar wheels might not add too much of value in practice. But if one could control for the ball type, and adjust for rotor speed somewhat, then I suppose it could be a helpful time saver.
And some wheel types are of course better than other. I’d be interested in hearing stories about that, even if outdated. Like som old time’s burglers had their favourite safe models, which they knew how to crack…
