Soft spin red spin, hard spin black spin Roulette System

I also call this one the 'Dr Suess' system, in honour of the author who wrote bizarre rhyming children's stories with only one-syllable words.  This strategy is as easy to understand as a Dr Suess book, and just as strange.

Some adults, however, take this system very seriously. A friend, and fellow roulette player told me the story of how he got to talking to another well-dressed, middle aged player who happened to be winning big at the wheel that night.  When asked what his secret was, my friend was shocked at the answer.  He said 'if the croupier does a soft spin, the result will be red, if the croupier does a hard spin, the result will be black.  I wished my friend had asked for the rationale behind this strategy because I was perplexed.  However, I thought that there could only be one person in the world who subscribed to this theory so I soon forgot about it.

A couple of years later, I was in another casino on the other side of the country when I overheard almost the exact same conversation behind me.  I didn't want to miss the chance this time to find out more, so I turned around and struck up a conversation, and then asked how this strategy worked.  The answer I got was 'when the dealer spins a soft (or slow) spin, the ball will be more likely to land on a red number.  I don't know how it works - it just does!'

I had a few more questions that I didn't bother asking: How do you define a soft spin or hard spin?  Don't most croupiers spin the ball at a consistent speed with each spin?  How can this possibly influence the result?

Needless to say, I don't think this system has any basis at all.  If someone can tell me the origin of or theory behind this strategy please let me know.
