7 straight "19" in roulette Monday night at Rio in Vegas.True odds: 114,415,582,591 to 1 (yep, Billion with a B)Pic tweated by Poker Pro Jeff Romano, and reported by Las Vegas Sun.Winning the Powerball Lottery is 586 times MORE likely than a roulette number hitting seven straight times.If you played roulette every day, 24 hours a day, your favorite number would hit seven straight times once every 217,000 years!Do you think this is random, or a crooked wheel?

Crooked wheel doesn't guarantee that many 19s in a row though, even if it was tilted to the No. 19. Too many things still come into play.

RJ, I got on this two days ago. As you see no one is at the table. I do not think this happened. I have seen this many times when they shut down the game and restart it. Has the Rio confirmed this?
Interesting about the picture . . . of the 16 numbers listed, 12 of them are the same two numbers.Does this seem more likely or less likely to you than 7 straight.For the answer, I asked Ed Meyer, a Physics PHD/handicapper/friend of Pregame.com - with student Joe Luchsinger they determined the following . . .
The probability of any two PARTICULAR numbers (e.g., 1 and 2) occurring in exactly 12-of-16 spins is (1/19)^12 * (18/19)^4 * 16!/(12!4!).
To get the probability of ANY two numbers, we have to multiply this by the number of ways two numbers can be chosen from 38.
This is: 38*37/2
So, I get 1 of of 2,147,538,121 or about one out of two billion that the next 16 spins of a roulette wheel will land on any 2 of the 38 numbers in 12 of the 16 spins.
on June 18, hours away from the 19th day this month,the 19 occurs seven consecutive times ?
I think there's going to be a lot of superstitious people playing the next calendar day's date.
If they don't win,will they RUE LETTING themselves be so 'spun' by the idea ?
File it under "stories too good to be true"..."There was no one playing at that table," Rio Las Vegas Hotel & Casino spokesman Gary Thompson told The Detroit News on Wednesday. "It was just a diagnostic test being done."

Earlier, I had sent Tweet to Jeff Romano for more detail and he replied "there were a couple people at the table going crazy, but I was just passing by"...so, now have to wonder what he saw, or maybe he's just trying to keep story going since he seems so pleased his pic went viral LOL
This didnt really happen as per this article: www.detroitnews.com/.../Seven-consecutive-19s-Las-Vegas-roulette-wheel-Well-no|topnews|text|Sports
I see this all the time at vacant wheels. You can see no one is at the table.
