If you're a live dealer Roulette player, I am going to share a little secret with you. Roulette dealers can have an influence on the outcome of the game. This is not something any casino will ever acknowledge and most people don't even want to admit to themselves. It is, however, one of the most common methods of cheating in Roulette.

Can Roulette Dealers Really Influence the Game?

This doesn't apply much to online Roulette, unless you're playing online with a real casino using a web cam, but if you're at the casino then this is something you should know about. Whenever a live human being is involved as a dealer, the results of a spin can be influenced.

Think about the gentleman who recently set Jeopardy records. He was able to amass millions of dollars over the longest consecutive winning streak on record not only because he was smarter than his opponents, but because he was able to ring in first on a consistent basis. Because he knew the system and its equipment, he had first access to questions more often than his opponents.

Athletes and Roulette dealers are the same. The phenomenon is called muscle memory. The Roulette dealer has more interaction with the wheel and ball than anyone else, and overtime, a synchronicity develops between the dealer and the spinning wheel. The dealer is able to cause the ball to end up in a particular part of the wheel more often because he or she knows when to release the ball and in what manner to do so. This of course against the rules, but it is incredibly hard to prove.
