crazy online roulette moment, explain please.

this just happend to me and Im like lol wtf..

I play online at UB, yes I know about the fixes in the past but I am a low stakes player and I get rake back and well what ever.

I have made a big time life failure in that I am good at poker, good at the hu sng etc but Ive started playing roulette a bit, of course another fool I hear you say, another Martingale player and yes I personally bust out 1000 the other day with 7 or eight blacks in a row and I was on red, but that is not why I am posting.

I just logged into my Ub account and I see they have given me $14, not much money but then again the other day I turned $1.50 to a couple of hundred so money is money, what ever.

Reason for my post, money wise I dont even care but it is so LOL I need to post it, and yes this is 100% ture.

I bounced between roulette with 14 after winning twice once on red then doing the bottom third and the upper third and it came in 1 or some thing so then I had 24 or what ever, I played a $3 or $6 hu sng, won that, next thing I know I won a $12 hu sng..

Back to the roulette.

Tell me is this possible online because I just saw it with my own eyes and Im not ****** about.

I put 5 on like bottom third and five on the top third then ball when into action.. and Im watching it then.

The ball goes around like 3 4 5 times what ever, it then stops after hitting a slot.. and then changes dirrection and at the same speed goes counter clockwise skipping around the dial 2 or three times.

My mouth dropped.

Then the balls like it was on strings lands guess were, in the double zero or what ever, I was playing the european table.


I dont really believe that online any thing is rigged, but I have never seen any thing like that, it was like a total joke if you saw it you would be like wtf was that, that is not even possible.

I know its fake and it simulates roulette but the ball travels around the table or dail 4,5,6 times, hits a slots then with great vigour skates counter clockwise 2,3,4 times and finally plonks into double zero.


People can flame me but I can back this up, if any one at UB is reading this PM me I just played this 21:50gmt I will provide my user name.


im not saying any thing but come on man a jokes a joke how the *** is that possible?, itsnot like the ball locked or had some strange hit and smashed backwards the ball had already gone around 4,5,6 times, it bangs and slot then goes against the motion of the table and stakes acorss counter to its motion.


Seriously Im going to get flame but what I just saw was *** amazing and untill I get some kind of answer to what I just saw I think ill stick to poker.


from gambler to others out there, GIVEN what I just saw (which I did) how am I ment to think about this? it was physically impossible, that could NEVER happen in real life, and I am leaving out for the moment it then plink plonked into double zero.

Is there some one at ub I can talk to about this?

Has any one seen some thing even remotely this crazy?

I wish I had a screen capture of this, it would be dicussed for sure.

Finally is online roulette actually expected to be fair and random, am I being stupid here, is there a random number generator that produces the balls "path"?

Re: crazy online roulette moment, explain please.

your internet connection lagged. I very much doubt the online roulette software has an advanced physics engine to simulate the movements of a roulette ball. The number it'll land in is determined the second you click spin. You should click "turn off animations" you'll be amazed at how fast the ball moves.

Is there some one

Has any one seen some thing even
Compound words are your friend. They make reading easier. How can you hit double-zero on a European wheel?

As for the rest of your post, as tomdemaine said -- you're viewing an animation of a foregone conclusion. This is meant to make the game more entertaining for you -- in this case, it didn't work as planned.

Someone screwed up whatever on something.

I, for one, do believe online casinos are rigged.

But if you think the little animations are relevant to that conversation...

... think again.

Even on slot machines, some of the Jackpots are actually underwritten by third party insurers whose servers are pinged for every line played. So I buy insurance for 50MM pings generated on a third party RNG (installed on my machine) which pings their machine with a random number 1-200MM to determine if this is a winner (assume the winning number is 1, if you play 81 lines the winning number is anything 1-81) -- I will program the local computer to suppress displaying all winning Jackpot combinations generated by the local PRNG, and if the ping is successful, to force the display of the win insured by the third party. Everybody is trying to keep it honest, but there are a lot of things going on behind the scenes ... and that's just one of them.

Re: crazy online roulette moment, explain please.

I hadn't thought it'd be quite that complicated on the RNG side, but I just know from a software development standpoint that expecting every little casino animation to be a full-up physics engine, just isn't realistic.

I know at least in Nevada that the law requires any depictions of physical gambling implements to be simulated correctly, but to expect the simulation to be perfectly animated is unrealistic.

I've been around the block enough times to know otherwise.
