Roulette Game Rules
Let's look at the rules of roulette in a simple and concise way.
Let's start at the table. There is always a roulette wheel on the table, which in French roulette is divided into 37 sectors - 36 black and red and one green 0.
The object of the game is to guess where the ball will fall. Players use their chips to place bets on the appropriate fields. But they must do so before the croupier says the famous phrase: "Rien ne va plus." After the ball falls into one of the sectors, the croupier announces the winning number and pays the profits.
How to bet?
So far, the game seems relatively simple and boring, but the possibilities for roulette betting are endless.
One of the main bets, for example, is the color bet. You have almost a 50% chance of returning your bet (at a 1: 1 bet, ie a € 100 win over a € 100 bet). Other bets with this chance:
|Rouge||all red numbers|
|Noir||all black numbers|
|Pair||all even numbers|
|Impair||all odd numbers|
|Manque||all numbers from 1 to 18|
|Passe||all numbers from 19 to 36|
The main types of bets, however, include more advanced systems with higher risk but also with higher potential returns.
|Plein||1 out of 37 numbers (eg 14)||35: 1|
|Cheval||2 adjacent table numbers (split bet - eg 28/31)||17: 1|
|Transversale pleine||3 adjacent table numbers (split bet between three numbers - eg 19/20/21)||11: 1|
|Les trois Premiers||first three numbers (0/1/2)||11: 1|
|Carré||4 corner bet numbers (ex. 26/27/29/30)||8: 1|
|Les quatre Premiers||first four numbers (0/1/2/3)||8: 1|
|Transversale simple||2 adjoining states (19/20/21/22/23/24)||5: 1|
|Premier (12P)||first dozen (1-12)||2: 1|
|Milieu (12M)||second dozen (13-24)||2: 1|
|Dernier (12D)||third dozen (25-36)||2: 1|
|Colonnes||columns (along the table)|
|Colonne 34||1/4/7/10/13/16/19/22/25/28/31/34||2: 1|
|Colonne 35||2/5/8/11/14/17/20/23/26/29/32/35||2: 1|
|Colonne 36||3/6/9/12/15/18/21/24/27/30/33/36||2: 1|
In addition, there are several special bets, such as a final or a final bet. This bet is on the last digit of the number. For example, the final four means that you bet on numbers 4, 14, 24 and 34. Betting on the last numbers ending in six requires four chips, while three chips is sufficient to bet the last 7, 8 and 9.
Another special bet on French Roulette is the "third of the wheel" (le Tiers du cylindre), the adjacent zero numbers (les VOISINS du Zéro) and "orphans" (les Orphelins). The first of these bets involves betting on twelve wheel numbers 33 through 27. The bet on adjacent zero numbers covers a total of 17 numbers 25 through 22; it is also possible to rely on immediate adjacent zero numbers, i.e. the bet is 7 numbers from 15 to 12. Finally, the "orphans" represent the rest of the wheel: numbers 6 to 17 and 9 to 1.
When the ball hits zero, there are three options.
At best, zero bets can win (or lucky ones with zero in one of their combinations). Alternatively everyone else may lose, or at European casinos - and this is the third alternative - bets are frozen and their fate is decided the next time they roll.
These are briefly the rules of roulette. We look forward to seeing you again at the online casino when you can try to put these rules into practice.
