A 50-sided die with the roulette's bets, based on a Dan Spevack's idea. Labels: 1, 2, 3, ..., 36, 0, 00, ODD, EVEN, HIGH, LOW, BLACK, RED, 1-12, 13-24, 25-36, Col 1, Col 2, Col 3. The circular dimples are all identical, placed in a symmetrical, quasi-regular pattern on the sphere.

I don't know how fair it is, in any case: "this is not intended to replace a roulette wheel. It is essentially a random number (bet) generator...a novelty item. A person takes the die with them to the table. So a lack of perfection in equality is not a dealbreaker. (Dan Spevack)"

DISCLAIMER. I got a WSF print of this die (see photos). That was a test version with flat dimples. Unfortunately it is somewhat disappointing due to the poor rendering of many tiny details. The enhanced version now available has concave dimples (see 3D and renderings) to ensure more stability. In any case I *strongly* recommend the frosted detail materials (which can also be easily painted with acrylics) instead of SF. I have uploaded also a larger version of the same die that is more suitable for the cheaper materials. Due to the many faces, this die should be rolled on a hard surface (wood, marble) to be sure that it lands clearly on the dimples.


IN: 2.08 w x 2.08 d x 2.08 h
CM: 5.282 w x 5.282 d x 5.282 h

Hallo Frank, thank you for contacting me. I have just ordered a print of my Roulette Die to test it. I thought it better to try it for myself because in this case I had some modeling issues and I wanted to be sure of the result. Unfortunately I fear the print won't arrive before March, 2. When I receive it I will make it available. The price in WSF is around 24$. As usually, to limit the price I made the die hollow with very thin wall-thickness (1.4 mm). This prevents the print in Full color sandstone, which needs at least 2 mm. Also metal printing is impossible for the same reason. Due to the many details of this die I would recommend the "frost" detail materials, or also polished WSF. Thanks again for your interest, Federico (Friz)

Good evening, As a dice collector and past purchaser of your dice, I would like the opportunity to buy one or more of these. I could then tell you my impressions. All I need to know is a price and what material options you have for it. For one, I would be interested in full-colored sandstone but I would also be interested in other materials as well. Thanks, Frank A.
