I believe that trying to map out a starburst wheel is more of a project that will produce random results unless it’s a biased wheel - - that’s just my opinon. I feel that way because not only can the ball skip over the low or no fret pocket walls, it can also exit the rear of the pocket rather easily. As if the regular type frets weren’t enough, why put our money on the line with starburst wheels where the ball effortlessly skips across the depressions like driving over speed bumps - - when all I have to do is find a wheel that suites my style for maximum winnings.
I probably could win on a starburst wheel if I was willing to map it out, but my objective is to win money the fastest way possible while drawing the least amount of suspicion - - - and the time it would take for me to try and map out and figure out a starburst wheel wouldn’t be the most logical approach for me to take - - even if my mapping conclusions where correct because of the time contraints involved.
I am aware of the basic ball types and sizes and the effect that it produces on the wheel- - - however, I really didn’t want to get into that at this point in time - - but YOU DID BRING IT UP - - SO LET’S PROCEED:
18MM ball size - slightly less than 3/4 of an inch in diameter (smallest ball used in casino that produces the most bounce)
21mm ball size- a little smaller than 7/8 of an inch in diameter (largest ball used in casino that produces less bounce)
Mid sized ball- 13/16 inches in diameter (in the middle - – the latest sized balls most casinos use at certain tables)
Teflon material- is heavier material and will deaden and drop quicker. ( advantage player’s dream ball)
Composition material- (like those used on billiards) - - -lighter than Teflon, but a bit on the heavy side (which is good for roulette players since it will drop quicker on the rotor.)
Ivory material- right in the middle, however prohibited in most casinos.
Acetal material - a common substance for roulette balls, is a lighter to mid ranged material with a decent amount of ball action. This is a happy medium for the Casinos. Not as good for the roulette players.
Nylon material- is to light and highly volatile. Should be avoided by the astute roulette players at all cost.
So Kelly, I guess what you were trying to say regarding the ball types and it’s basic overall effect is as followed:
a) The amount of spin that the ball experiences are tied to the specific gravity of the material used.
b) Every material has a specific gravity, which is a measure of its weight- per- unit volume.
c) A ball produced from a lower gravity material will exhibit faster rotation about its own axis.
d) This spin energy must be completely exhausted before the ball can come to rest in one of the pockets.
e) Hence, the more spin energy the ball possesses, the greater the reaction as the ball contacts the pocket separators.
Kelly, I am new at this and just started 2 months ago, but I am a fast leaner.
SO SAY HELLO TO THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK. ;D
