    The top screen is obvious on how it tracks players, bankers, and ties. My questions lies in the multiple read outs below. I have tried searching and have came up pretty much empty on any information.

    the road usually on the far bottom left is just the same as the big road at the top, but icons are listed from top to bottom, left to right. that one is easy to read/mark.

    the key to reading the other 3 - big eye, small and cockroach - is just looking at the icons on the right of the screen under banker and player.

    note that in the first image below, under banker there's a blue open circle, a blue closed circle and a red slash. and the opposite under player. that depicts what next icon would be added to each road if that side were to win. if banker were to win a blue icon would be added to the big eye road, a blue icon would also be added to the small road, but a red icon would be added to the cockroach road.

    in this particular shoe i won a bunch of money because if you look at the small road (bottom left), every time red went to the second line, it jumped to blue. and after the first 2 rows, every time blue went to the second line it jumped to red. so all i did was bet hard on blue every time red went to the second line and vice versa.

    notice a similar thing in the image in the link here (http://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/showpost.php?p=579832&postcount=120), but on the cockroad road. every time either side got to the second line, it jumped. likewise here i bet that pattern hard every time won a bunch on this shoe as well.

    that's how these charts can be useful to you.

    You might as well read tea leaves. It's only there to fool you into thinking that you can actually predict a completely random outcome. Do you really think they would display this information so prominently if it somehow allowed players to win more? The casinos love them! Their "take" increased significantly when they added these tracking signs. Same thing with roulette.

    Good point. Yet all these big roads, little roads and whatever are very popular. It is like 95% of the people use them. It is just not in Vegas. At Foxwoods and AC for instance everyone at my table uses that. Coupled with a progession/Martingale betting scheme, it is a nightmare waiting to happen. Only part of that board I find useful is the Main Road which tells how the shoe is doing so I don't make mistakes in my recording.

    who said anything about helping you predict the future? these threads always bring out the people who insist on spewing their mantra even when that's not even what's being talked about. the OP asked how to read the charts and that's it.

    as far as what the charts are useful for, they're useful for seeing previous patterns. nobody said they had any affect on the future of the shoe. sometimes patterns hold, sometimes they don't and you never know. that's why you play the game.

    Here's someone asking a newbie question about gambling, obviously not having a great deal of knowledge regarding how gambling works and all they get is talk about following trends and other such useless things. Sorry, you may think that you can win big with your system if the conditions are just right, but it's false hope. I cannot sit idly by and not point out the fallacy of such things. Especially when someone is just learning. I fell for the same things when I was young but luckily I spent very little before learning the truth.

    While it's just my opinion, it's backed by very real statistics. You may give your opinion based on whatever information you want. Then others reading can make their own decisions. I see no reason to limit what information is put forth from either side of an issue.

    I would STRONGLY encourage everyone doing ANY gambling to do real research on the odds behind these casino games. People will look online for the cheapest gas prices to save a buck or two, will cut coupons to save a few bucks, and then they will drop hundreds of dollars gambling without spending 5 minutes reading from the experts who have spent hundreds of hours researching the odds and strategies of gambling. Just don't go looking at someone selling a "guaranteed to win" betting system. A great site for general gambling is wizardofodds.com and for blackjack specific it's bj21.com.

    again, you're the only one talking about predicting the future, systems, guaranteed wins or anything like that. the OP asked what the charts meant and how to read them. and he posted that he got exactly what he was looking for, end of story.

    i'm not saying that the information you provided isn't useful to help the newbs, just that it's annoying that you and others insist on jumping into every conversation about Bacc with the same "independent random event" information even even when the topic has nothing to do with trends or systems or predicting the future, etc.

    Ofcourse but in a casino its more likely to be crushed grapes!
    Those annunciator boards for roulette and baccarat are great. People come along and can instantly "see" what will win next ... and so they play whereas without the display they would only watch.
    Of course the casino will never tell anyone that the display is meaningless, its too profitable.

    I agree that it does create more action for the casino. Which is why I don't understand why some cheap ass casinos won't put in the fancy screens - cough the Beau cough.

    I have to agree, OP was looking for an explanation of how to read the screen.

    Okay. I guess I'm used to being on gaming message boards with people who are "into" analyzing the game and educating the newbies. Different crowd here. I'll keep quiet. Peace.

    Are you reading your posts? Did he not educate him on the question he asked which is how to read the screen? It feels like you're just trying really hard to be heard when no one asked the question you're answering, even after multiple people and the OP said that shifter's information was helpful and just what they needed. And then to try and generalize the rest of the board as not "into" analyzing the games and being a different crowd is just plain ridiculous. When that is the question at hand (like it is in thousands of other threads) then it will be answered, just like this one. :peace:
