@KodyWB-98 You got it! I honestly didn't think that one would be too difficult, so I added a lot of numbers. @Tri was pretty close too!
That just leaves puzzle #12~

well then my answer is it is what ever number they chose because it will be the same number the second time they chose it so it doesnt matter what number

For puzzle 12; I have been thinking for awhile and i'm pretty sure it's number 10 :-?
EDIT: explaination: all the other answers were wrong :3

I tend to arrive when all the puzzles have already been completed, but it seems #12 is still unsolved - which is unfortunate, because it makes no sense. Maybe giving the rules of winning the roulette would help? And I'd advise you make people explain their answers, otherwise a guesser will win.

We're to assume that there are 11 numbers on this roulette, and you have to guess a specific number to win, yes?

@Everyone I'm guessing puzzle #12 is too difficult / confusing / unfair. Nobody has gotten it right. D:
I'll reveal the answer and if everyone agrees it's unfair, a replacement puzzle will be posted.
The answer is 1. The number of the person who won last is the key. Based on the order of the numbers, if you take the previous winning number and subtract the number to the right of it, you get the next number.

If you'd been thinking really hard about it, you'd actually have a method to explain how you got that answer.

I can see how you got that, but that makes no practical sense in the real world. How would a number on a roulette board possibly be affected by that kind of mathematics? It would be as if a roulette could read the numbers on itself, and then control how far it spins based off of a mathematical equation. Such a device would need to be invented and digitally controlled - which defeats the purpose of a roulette in the first place.

Sorry if I'm ranting - still respect you for keeping this going for this long :3, and the puzzle was fine - but the context was out of place.

Yeah, I get what you mean. I was figuring that was the case; the puzzle was originally a card trick. Then I changed it because cards would be coming up in a few days (today). So I'll make a new puzzle for the day, with the same concept (number patterns) and a different backdrop. It'll be up either later tonight or tomorrow (these take time to come up with after all).

@Dash Whoops. D: I thought I gave more than one. Hmm.... Well I'm just getting used to the whole "Puzzle Making" thing, sorry if some things slip my mind.
If I ever do that again, feel free to point it out anyone(although it may for some reason have be intentional in the future).

Here is the remake of puzzle 12~

Puzzle #12: Redo

As a brilliant detective, you can be relied opon to solve any case. A week ago your department recieved a letter detailing a case, and was given to a lower-ranking detective. However this mystery here has stumped your fellow detectives for days. Here it is below:

'I, Ernest Hentingway, of ACME Casino, have a troubling issue that has commanded my attention. A man has been stealing money from me for weeks! He keeps playing the same machine many times, and wins every time! Please help me stop him.'

You head down to the casino yourself; only to discover the machine runs on a trick. What is the trick?
The slot-machine is 4 numbers long, and has you predict the next numbers to win. What are the next 4 numbers if the last 6 were:

0107
0121
0204
0218
0304
0318

@Tricoloryoshi Don't worry, the next one isn't math related.
I'll put it up about 8 EST, maybe between then and 8:15.

@Skitrules Unfortunately, that is not it.
@crimsionfire13 The answer is composed of 4 digits, and only the next one is needed.
