    This is the first roulette system I have seen on Youtube that is a good system. Unless you can fraud/cheat/break into them, you're feeding the palms of oily strangers! Hopefully that video will reach out to more than a few people.

    Not recommended.

    Get a stanley knife and cut a line down each side of the screen. Normally when a user touches the monitor with his or her finger, some of the charge is transferred to the user, so the charge on the capacitive layer decreases. This decrease is measured in circuits located at each corner of the monitor. The computer calculates, from the relative differences in charge at each corner, exactly where the touch event took place and then relays that information to the touch-screen driver software. This is now inoperative and costs about 150 a screen to replace.

    i've never seen the attraction of roulette ,it just does'nt do it for me .i count myself very lucky that i have always been able to see straight through it.

    i think that video deserves a hell of a lot more views than its current 120ish and whichever mod made it a sticky topic .....very well played.

    Once lost more in one hour on a FOBT than in a year of playing fruit machines (I'm no pro fruity player). Crack cocaine of the gambling world.

    The music after 25 seconds or so is The Lonely Man theme from the Incredible Hulk - how apt.

    i suppose i'll never truly understand the allure of roulette ,,,,,,, ,,,,, but what surprises most is that it isn't just a disease for the stupid ,it somehow manages to grab people with superior intelligence too , i think we can all agree that jg and harry for example are extremely intelligent people , articulate and well versed on any given subject,,,,,, in fact both these members would be first to point out that roulette is a pointless exercise that cant be beat longterm , yet they and many others still go back from time to time and do their sacks . how does it hold you in its grasp?

    Roulette is cripplingly horrible. How does it hold so many people in its grasp, including myself?
    Well there are Six different gambling psyches.

    1) The 'Buzz artist' gets an adrenalin rush from a series of bets that can produce what they would class as soemthing from a 'nice little wad' to a 'life changing sum of money'. Typically the Buzz artist may go into a casino with 400 and place twenty 20 bets on a single, a quick win and you've got yourself a sizeable LCD TV or later down the line a brand new phone+contract.
    2) The 'Primark gambler' gambles for as long as his bankroll will allow him, bets tend to be geared to produce maximum gambling time and rewards are set to be frequent but small.
    3) The 'One hit bustout/designer gambler' is happy to take on big bets at long odds to get the big glory. Session time is very short and the idea is to win big and quick and to look good and take losses on the chin and wins, well, lap it up!
    4) The 'Loss chaser' is a form of the Primark gambler, but unlike the Primark gambler they must avoid losing at all costs, if this means putting down a big bet way out their comfort zone, they will do that. When in their comfort zone bets are typically cosy and safe. Losing sessions have to be qualised with winning sessions. The loss chaser can thrive on UK AWPs as when played to a certain level across the board % will be >100% allowing the loss chasers ideals to be achieved. Alas on roulette, this idea is broken, but the loss chaser is also an eternal optimist and feels like they can cheat maths, he is able to surpress logic and rationality in exchange for an escapist irrational activity that they perversely enjoy much to their cost.
    5) The 'video gamer' is an unusual gambler. Gambling is a hue, a tonality of their personality but only at a social level. Their real joy is skill stops, Marvel Action heroes, colourful lights and puzzles and challenges. Gambling is a fun activity but also one to be treated as a competitive activity.
    6) The 'sports gambler' basically putting your money where your mouth is, typically involved with major sporting events but woudl also like bets such as "I bet you 10 you can't keep your mouth shut for half an hour".


    The six psyches have been rewritten by myself (no shit), but come from the interchangeable table of gambling characteristics devised by Prof. Mark Griffiths of Notts University and Shaun Waddler a postgraduate of psychology and gaming psychology at London Imperial.

    I have posted this in a rather simplified form, the six types rehashed as the main six 'eggs' of gambling egos.

    For instance you may be mostly a loss chaser but also a sports gambler. In other words if you were following Quizmasters football thread, you'd bet 100 one week and a lose would => stake 200 next week etc however the need to wait for losses to be relinquished means this is an unusual but not impossible psyche mix.

    Primark gamblers tend to have problems with social interaction and usually the TIME they spend on gambling is as detrimental to their life as MONEY spent.

    Loss chasers typify the 'pathological gambler' that really runs into problems though. The other gamblers are gambling within acceptable lifestyle paremeters for gambling, but loss chasers and Primarks are essentially transversing gambling into a form of 'mental wanking' where 'masturbatory urges increase with activity engagement' - not my words!!!

    Again, don't really need to say it, but individuals exhibit different tendencies of these gambling psyches.

    I class myself as a mild loss chaser. I have the conscious power to override silly decisions, MOST of the time. Sometimes you have to sack things off, however I don't do this with 100% diligence. Loss chasing is a PERSONALITY DEFECT and stems from emotional immaturity and a skewed outlook on life. I wholly accept this character defect.
    I also class myself as part video gamer and part Primark.

    Harry is probably 4,6,5,1 in that order, with the loss chaser being his main downfall. I don't want to stereotype him, but my personal psychological profile analysyst has scanned though his backpostings and it seems he likes videogames, sports, heftyish bets and he doesn't take losing gracefully all the time.

    Lee you're a pure video gamer through and through. If fruit machines hadn't been invented you'd only ever play cards with mates perhaps or go to the casino if you were somewhere like Vegas. However fruit machines appeal to the video gamer psyche and you probably got addicted to Rat Races and Tuppenny Nutcrackers like you might get addicted to Shenobi Master Kung Fu Jedi Blaster Slug Gunner Road Rager 2 on the Spectrum 48ZXk box. You'd as happily spend 20 on Mastertronic as you would on Barcrest.

    We have a few video gamers on here, I think you're the purest Lee but I suspect Lugsy and Scott are quite videogamey as well as Kesh maybe, Crosby is plus a but of sports. Scott is slightly sports.

    You videogamers have addictive peronalities, but you tend to be better at forming and maintaining relationships that us loss chasers. You also lie less as well.


    Anyway, enough Jeugen Freudian Griffiths/waddler psychoanalysis for one night. Hopefully this whole thread will hold a mirror up to those in real schtuck and hopefully it has explained why roulette, with its alluring balance of simplicity with complex pattern spotting, hooks in so many intelligent people with the 'wrong' personality.

    Take care and good night.

    JG
