If there was some number favored due to a small fault then the player could not know which table that wheel was at. Such a wheel on an airplane could be a huge hazard in turbulence if it came loose and flew around the cabin. Those things are heavy. Wouldn't a roulette wheel count as equipment that needed FAA or other regulator approval as all other installed equipment does? Hardly worth the effort. On the other hand card games would be no problem. Since the Sands planes are based in Nevada, I wonder if any gaming facilities on board are subject to Nevada regulation. They are very strict about that stuff.
