Mate, when I first joined here I noticed a lot of threads being answered quite sharply and it was initially a little offputting, but if you stick around a few weeks you'll start to understand why - theres a WHOLE LOT of people like yourself drop by, complain the roulette/blackjack/[insert game here] "feels" rigged, with little or no evidence, then refuse to accept any of the mountain of evidence it is not rigged.. and people just tire of reading this same thing day in day out. So don't think it is personal because it definitely isn't, if anything people just want you to realise as quickly as possible that what you are saying is extremely, extremely unlikely, and the facts (not a gut feeling after a bad session) should convince you as such.

The numbers you posted look as "random" as any others - why are they "near" your bets? It's random, remember - those numbers were just as likely as any others on the table. The table didn't know your chips were nearby when it picked those numbers, sure you could say it's a bit of a co-incidence, but if you try (not even that hard) I'll bet you can point out a pattern of some kind in your roulette results EVERY SINGLE SESSION of one kind or another. Give it a try on free play !

Thanks Catapultaudio, fair call

Thanks to all for all the comments, i will admit a lot of it went over my head when it comes to the specific working of the software. Hey I enjoy playing a game were a little white ball flys around and lands in a slot and am i willing to put money on it, so obviosly not the sharpest tool in the shed lol. I did however read an article about online roulette seeming like the numbers your not betting on come up so much. The basis of this was due to the speed that online roulette is played. Land based casino roulette run at approx 1 spin per 3 minites, so that will result in 20 spins per hour. Compare that to appox 3 spins per minute with online roulette getting 180 results in a hour and all of a sudden the number you do not want seems to be drawn way to often. Purely based on the amount of numbers generated i mean. That does explain why i see them so much beside me but did make sense as to why it seem to be so often. , Guess it just is what it is. One of the question was why do i still play, because in my post i stated that you can win, i just wanted to know that when a number lands beside me i can be confident and say well that was bad luck, not you SOB your cheating. LOL

You could of course switch to the live roulette section of your favourite Casinos, or if they don't have it switch to another,
These are just like the real thing, plus, the ladies are pretty:)
And don't forget to stick to the accredited casinos, and keep reading the forum!
Just my 2 ct..

I was betting on 26 which just happens to be right beside number 3 on the roulette wheel. The only problem is there is no roulette wheel which makes it rather hard for the ball that doesn't exist either to land right beside it.

I've had discussions in this forum about online roulette and the quirky way these games play out. It's kind of difficult around here to say "this is odd" without it being interpreted as "this is cheating" but that's the assumption that's usually drawn. I maxed out the number 26 last week and it showed up on the number board 3 times at once. This time it landed "beside it" 3 times on the board. If it was cheating today, it must have been cheating in my favour last week.

If you really work with random numbers you'll see how unpredictable and weird these things play out. I've written many flash programs that use random numbers including a classic 3 reel slot game and I was almost finished a 5 reel video slot game when my old hard drive crashed. I never recovered the data. I told the story before about how I ran my first (high speed, text only) test on the classic reel slot game with 15000 to 1 odds of hitting the jackpot and I hit it within the first 10 spins. Then I ran it for hundreds of thousands of "spins" and never hit it again. That's random numbers for you.

It's usually not quite so obvious when playing slot games because there are multiple reels instead of just one number but it happens just the same. If one of the reels lands in the same position twice in a row it is noticeable. I'm sure we've all seen it many times and never thought much of it. When a roulette "ball" lands in the same place twice we think "twice in a row? Really?" Realistically the odds of the roulette number being the same twice are probably better than the odds of the slot real doing it. (I'm just guessing.) It's just more noticeable when you're looking at a single number.

I came here once and said I just surrounded a number on the center line of the roulette table and hit every single number on that line except the one I surrounded. Of course some people said I was accusing the game of cheating but I thought it was worth mention. When a RNG does oddball things for or against you it doesn't automatically mean something dishonest is happening but it does mean something interesting is happening. I see it often enough but I don't really bother mentioning it anymore. Mostly out of laziness. I can't be bothered after the 2 line post, the 10 page debate that follows about whether or not I'm accusing the casino of cheating.

I'm more than happy to have a 10 page debate. I'd just rather it was about something more important than a roulette ball.
