Live French Roulette

As many Roulette players will know, the game is originally French and its name comes from the French for ‘little wheel’. As a result, in many ways French Roulette is a return to the game’s origins. It makes use of French betting terms and there is even a special rule that improves the odds in your favour. The French Roulette table is streamed to you in high definition straight from the casino floor and the game is packed with special features to make the experience more enjoyable and realistic. A professional croupier who will ensure that there is smooth and enjoyable action at all time runs the table.



Game Flow

The game follows the standard rules. The idea is to bet on which segment in the spinning roulette wheel the ball will come to rest on. You need to place your chips on the betting area before the croupier calls time on bets. You will then see as they release the ball into the wheel and it comes to a rest. After any winning bets have been paid out, you can start betting on the next round.

Bets Explained

There are many different types of bet available in Roulette. In addition to betting on individual numbers, you can bet on groups of numbers that are formed by the layout of the wheel and betting area. You can also bet on groups of numbers that share characteristics, such as all the red or black numbers. French Roulette uses French betting terms.

The bets are divided into inside and outside bets. The inside bets are:

  • Plein (Straight Up): A bet on an individual number.
  • Transversale Pleine (Street): A bet on three numbers in a row on the betting area.
  • Cheval (Split): A bet on two numbers that are adjacent in the betting area.
  • Carré (Corner): A bet on four numbers whose corners meet on the betting area.
  • Transversale Simple (Line): A bet on two neighbouring streets, a total of six numbers.
  • Transversale de Quatre (Four): A bet on the numbers 0/1/2/3.

The outside bets are:

  • Colonne (Column): A bet on one of the horizontal columns of 12 numbers in the betting area.
  • Douzaine (Dozen): A bet on the first, second or third group of 12 numbers (1-12, 13-24 and 25-36).
  • Rouge/Noir (Red/Black): A bet on either red or black numbers.
  • Pair/Impair (Even/Odd): A bet on either odd or even numbers.
  • Manque (1-18)/Passe (19-36) (Low/High): A bet on whether the ball will land on a low or high number (1 – 18 or 19 – 36).

You can also use a Racetrack betting area to place common betting patterns quickly and easily.

  • Voisins du Zero: A bet on the numbers neighbouring 0 on the wheel, it includes all of the numbers between 22 and 25.
  • Tier: A bet on the segment of the wheel that is opposite 0, this bet covers roughly a third of the wheel, the numbers between 33 and 27.
  • Orphelins: A bet on the numbers 17, 34, 6, 1, 20, 14, 31 and 9.
  • Zero: A bet on seven numbers surrounding zero on the wheel

The final type of bets are neighbour bets. These are bets on a number and its neighbours on the wheel. You can set it to be between 0 and 9 neighbouring numbers.

Special Features

Live French Roulette has a number of features that make it stand out. The most important of these is the La Partage Rule. This rule states that if the ball lands on 0 then half of all even money bets are returned.

In addition to this special rule, there are a number of game controls that will enhance your enjoyment. You can change the view so that you can see the live video, both betting areas, chat, and game statistics simultaneously. The statistics view gives you information about the last 50 to 500 rounds and a breakdown of where the ball has landed. The game also allows you to save your favourite bets, so that you can place them quickly in the future. Those who want to sit back and relax can use auto play functionality to bet on up to 100 rounds with conditions to stop if certain amounts are won or lost. As with all Live Dealer games, it is also possible to chat with your fellow players and the croupier.
