Roulette is a game where you can try to guess where the ball will stop. But some people use tricks to know where the ball will go. They check how fast the ball is moving.

Niko Tosa is from Croatia. He learns how to win a lot of money in a casino. He and his friends win 1.3 million pounds in a casino in London. Casinos have to change their machines. It is not so easy to win. The landing pockets are smoother and shallower. The ball bounces more.

During the pandemic, many people start to play roulette online. Some players use special software to predict the game. Casinos use special technology to make it hard to win.

Difficult words: landing pocket (an area on the roulette where the ball lands), bounce (to jump), predict (to say what will happen in the future).
