(I posted this earlier in the Online Casinos section with a non-obvious title, so I'm reposting it here hoping it will get more attention)

I just had an odd run at Desert Dollar's French Roulette and wanted to share.

Now, I'm not one to easily claim that a game is rigged, but this is beyond believable. A little over a minute apart (exactly 61 spins according to Playcheck), I got TWO runs of the same number hitting 5 TIMES in a row. The odds of any one number hitting 5 times in a row in French Roulette are 1 in 1.8 million (37*37*37*37).

I sent an email to Desert Dollar management. Will wait a bit to see if and what they reply.

-Damned!
That' s why i keep wondering about those softwares. Of course at every reliability bulletin there's about the same amount of blacks and reds, but it' s quite raw and obvious here!
Why don' t they deal with alternative series of 10 times the same numbers while they're at it .........
Did you asked for a software check?
Having said that, it must happen o somebody sooner or later.

Michael Shackleford calculated that such a feat had a 1 in 6 million chance of happening over the course of 1085 spins, which is what I played. So it's not such an impossible feat... but the fact that it happened while I was autoplaying and betting on red somehow adds to the funkiness.

I tried exploiting the suspected "flaw" by playing manually and betting on any number that would show up twice in a row but I only got one hit, several spins later. Dumb luck.

I'm guessing wildly here, but it might be that the autoplay function messes up with the RNG. I dunno.

Casino manager forwarded my email to MG.

Exactly. This kind of thing is inevitable. If you want to look for patterns after the even it's quite easy. Like 'wow, the dealer got a 7 or greater on his up card 10 hands in a row', or something. I would be more worried if the numbers alternated evenly - that would be proof of cheating, as the nature of randomness is that things will not alternate nicely, otherwise it be predictable, not random.

Roulette royale is a progressive at MG casinos which pays out a jackpot if the same number comes up 5 times in a row. People do hit it occasionally, see

I think we all know the truth. Anyone that has played Bj at MG (or crypto, PT and RTG) knows for sure and certain the game is a vastly different (playing) one from the B+M version.

Getting five numbers in a row at Roulette? You can be sure it won't happen in your life time. Getting five numbers in a row TWICE in a space of 1100 spins? Hello English Harbour.
