This system was an extension of the work done by the team depicted in the book ‘The Eudaemonic Pie’ titledĀ  ‘ The Newtonian Casino’ in England. Although everyone who reads this book is under the impression that the original system worked, it clearly did not. A delay fault in the interupt driver in the original program made the program unfuctional in a real casino enviroment. This was later revamped and reprogrammed by Laurance Scott and Fred Britain .The computer was named Oscar. The system was sold for several thousand dollars at a time, although it was cumbersome, it still could be worn and concealed covertly and only made to beat level wheels with the older deep pocketed wheels with less scatter. Only a few was sold and on todays modern Wheel setup where casinos take greater care is setting them near level, it would be more difficult to use. It was a successful system for its time. Set in a solid block of black treacle resin to stop people copying the code, the computer was large and heavy. The user also had to master using four switches in their pocket, greatly making the product impractical. The design we have has a pistol grip configuration, one at the top and three underneath. We tried it on modern wheels with shallow pockets where it still performed and showed an edge if the wheel was tilted. For its time, this was a good effective product, although its a long time ago when we tested this. Because it worked and was developed some time ago, we will never know why this was not developed further?
