French Roulette Rules
French Roulette has only the single zero, unlike the American Roulette table that usually has both a single zero and a double zero. This makes the odds in French Roulette much better than the odds in American Roulette with the double zero. When the wheel stops on the single zero in French Roulette, you lose only half of your even-money bets, which are shared with the bank (“La Partage” rule).
French Roulette offers a wide variety of different bets. Each bet covers a different set of numbers and has a different distribution, as shown in the Winnings table.
Whenever you move your computer mouse over the table and the cursor touches a possible bet, e.g. IMPAIR, all odd numbers are highlighted.
Plein (Straight up)
A chip can be wagered on any individual number, including zero (0). Place the chip directly on the individual number of your choice.
Cheval (Split bet)
A chip can be wagered on two adjacent numbers by placing the chip on the line dividing the two numbers. A chip can also be placed on the line dividing 0 & 1, 2 & 0, and 0 & 3.
Transversale pleine (Street bet)
This bet covers three numbers. Place the chip on the outer right boundary line of the Roulette table next to the corresponding row of three numbers. Casino Club also offers betting options for the street bets 0, 1, 2 and 0, 2, 3.
Carré (Corner bet)
Corner bets cover four numbers. Place the chip on the cross where the four numbers intersect. You may also wager on 0, 1, 2, 3 by placing the chip on the upper right boundary line of the Roulette table between 0 and 3.
Transversale simple (Line bet)
A line bet covers two street bets (i.e. the six different numbers in two rows of three numbers, for example: 4, 5, 6 + 7, 8, 9. Place the chip on the closest boundary line of the Roulette table where it is intersected by the line dividing the two rows.
Announces are called “bets” in French Roulette. There are several types: voisins, orphelins, and tiers. They divide the wheel into four areas. Finals are numbers ending with the same digit, and split finals are pairs of numbers ending with the same digits. Below you see an example of the graphics the game uses to call your announce bets.
Neighbour bets cover numbers located next to each other on the Roulette wheel. For example, if you wanted to wager on the number 25 plus the number immediately to the left and the number immediately to the right of 25 on the Roulette wheel, you would call a 1-number neighbour bet on 25 that includes the numbers 2, 25 and 17.
There are three boxes on the lower end of the table. By placing your chip in one of these boxes, you mark all twelve numbers above it (excluding 0).
You can bet on the 1st dozen by placing your chips either on the left or on the right at the lower end of the table on P12. For the 2nd dozen, choose M12, and for the 3rd D12.
Red/Black, Even/Odd, High/Low bets
A bet placed in one of the boxes on the either side of the table covers half of the numbers on the Roulette table (excluding zero). Each box covers 18 numbers.
