The Eudaemons | Online Roulette

live rouletteThere is a group of people from the 1970s who have gone down in roulette history: The Eudaemons. Have you heard of them? They were collection of physicists headed by roulette fanatics J. Doyne Farmer and Norman Packard who studies at the University of California in Santa Cruz.

They invested alot of time trying to devise a way of cracking the roulette code- their idea was actually not a get rich quick scheme, but a way of funding pure scientific research. These physicists were inspired to come up with an unbeatable system thanks to a line of philosophy called Eudaemonism- basically a form of karma building- the idea that if you do the right thing, that has value and it creates a virtuous circle in humanity. Sounds heavy? Yes, well it is.

Anyway, back to the roulette bit.

Using a camera and an oscilloscope, the physicist recorded and kept track of the motion of a roulette wheel and came up with an algorithm to describe its motion which relied on several variables including the period of rotation of the roulette wheel and the period of rotation of the ball spinning around the roulette wheel.

Physics being physics and roulette being roulette, the algorith was very complicated, so they built a computer to capture the information and crunch the numbers to arrive at a forecast for where the ball would land. This device was small enough to be hidden in a shoe (one of many shoe scams that have since been attempted by the way). You tapped your toe to get the information in and the information was then transmitted to a recorder that was strapped to the back of your shirt- this then vibrated (yes really!) with a code which instructed you as to which bet to go for.

In the late 70s the Eudaemons packed their vibrating clothes and tap dancing shoes and headed off to the bright lights of Las Vegas (where else?) to make their fortune. They modified the system with 2 members of the team setting up stall at the roulette tables- one person to bet and one person to watch. The person watching had the shoe device. The player betting wore the vibrating shirt, and they claimed to make a 44% return on their bets- quite an achievement. But there were some (bizarre) problems. For one, the player with the vibrating shirt kept getting small electrical shocks through his high tech garments (luckliy thay had not designed vibrating underpants). Actually, the shirt gave the wearer an electrical burn at one point (the lengths people will go to to beat the roulette table). Alledgedly, they landed around ten grand for their efforts.

So next time you are at the roulette table and you see someone lucky beside you squirming in pain, or whose hair is starting to stand on end, employ the "Ape Strategy". Follow their bets to the letter and get in their slipstream!
