I've noticed Live Dealers with long fingernails (more than one inch-1.5 or more) spin the ball the same way whereas dealer with once inch or less tend to roll erratically or even thump the ball.

Also the long fingernail dealers tend to be delicate so as not to ruin their nails, so the balls rolled from these dealers tend to be slow (along with the rotor).

One small correction.  Croupiers with 1/3 of an inch nails or longer
tend to be more careful with spinning the ball and rotor (by observation)

also, croupiers with 1/3 inch fingernails or longer-the scatter
is less (in general) than those with shorter fingernails.

There is more spin on balls w/shorter fingernails I've noticed.

There is a lot of money to be made picking footprints of dealers. I see it very often and one day when I have a few thousand to splash on the wheel I will take advantage of this situation. A good example I witnessed just before close for public holiday on Easter Thursday. Probably a celebratory gift by the dealer but he was aiming for a specific number and the players were egging him on to hit 11. He obliged by aiming for that area of the wheel. Although he did not hit 11 it was pretty close. One gambler noticed this and promptly came to the table and dropped 5 $25 chips covering the neighbors around 11. First spin he hit jackpot with a $900 win less his other chips. He promptly reloaded the neighbors and the dealer was still aiming for this part of the wheel. Bang, another $900 less other chips. He went for a third attempt but the dealer obviously caught on and changed his rhythm.

So if you have a few hundred or thousand to splash around you can cash in big time.

Interesting observation regarding long fingernails. I'll take note at my next visit.

Cheers,
Ricky

Interesting observation.

Believe it or not though as a VB player we're a little more interested in the quality of the spin, than a short spin.  A dealer with long nails might be more apt to bobble or bounce the ball as she releases it.  This is what some call a "bad hand."  This bounce can cause what's called a "harsh knee point" or hard chatter from the ball that causes the ball travel time to be less predictable and or drop outside of the model of what the other dealers are doing.   The final revs of the ball and it's travel times are very similar for 90% of the dealers, but there's often that one dealer that's creating the outliers.
