How to Play French Roulette

The word 'Roulette' comes from the French language and means 'little wheel'. Invented by French scientist and mathematician Blaise Pascal, the game of Roulette is proudly a French original.

Similar to the European variation of Roulette, in the game of French Roulette players wager on either a single number or a range of numbers, the colours red or black, or whether the number is odd or even. To determine the winning number and colour, a croupier spins the Roulette wheel in one direction and a ball in the opposite direction around the numbered track of the Roulette wheel. The ball eventually falls into one of 37 numbered and coloured pockets on the wheel (0 to 36).

How to Place a bet

The same Inside and Outside Bets found in European Roulette are also available at French Roulette tables, only their names appear in French (see below for a full list). Inside Bets are bets on numbers straight up or on a line between numbers that select a combination of numbers. Outside Bets are any of the bets in the boxes surrounding the numbers on the table.

To place Inside and Outside Bets:

1. Choose a chip value.
2. Click on the bet you wish to place on the French Roulette table.
3. Click on Spin or Turbo Spin.

Special features unique to French Roulette

La Partage Rule

If the ball lands on 0 (zero) in French Roulette, players only lose half their original even bets. This rule applies to all even Rouge/Noir, Pair/Impair and Manque/Passe bets.

The Advanced Panel

To place Announced Bets:

1. Click on Announced Bets in the Advanced Panel. A bets table will appear.
2. Scroll over the table to view the number of chips that are needed for each bet.
3. Click on an Announced Bet or a segment on the Roulette wheel image to place a bet. Chips are placed on all relevant numbers.
4. Click on Spin.



Neighbor Bets

Neighbour Bets allow players to wager on numbers that appear next to a certain number on the Roulette wheel. For example, a 1-number Neighbour Bet on 12 would include 12 as well as 28, the neighbouring number on the left, and 35, the neighbouring number on the right. Players can place up to 4-number Neighbour Bets (four numbers that appear adjacent to a number on the left and on the right sides).

To place Neighbor Bets:

1. Click on Neighbour Bets in the Advanced Panel.
2. Click on the number of Neighbour Bets you wish to wager on (1 – 4).
3. Scroll over the Roulette Wheel image to preview the bet you wish to place.
4. Click on the number you wish to bet on. Chips are placed on all relevant numbers.
5. Click on Spin.



Hot/Cold Numbers

The Neighbour Bets window will always showcase the five numbers that have won the greatest number of rounds (Hot) and the five numbers that have won the least number of rounds (Cold). Players can quickly and easily bet on one or all five Hot or Cold Numbers from the panel. Every number on the Roulette wheel is categorized by a level of 'hotness' or 'coldness'. This is illustrated on the Advanced Panel by designated colours that fill the pie-shaped space below each number on the Roulette wheel.

Clicking on All hot or All cold will place five chips on the table – one for each number.

If two numbers were called the same amount of times, the number that was called last is hotter.

The five coldest numbers are displayed only after enough spins occur for them to be determined.

Hot and cold numbers are determined per session only.

Autoplay

The autoplay feature allows you to automatically play a chosen number of successive game rounds without having to place your bets and click on the Spin button each time.

1. Click on Autoplay in the advanced panel.
2. Choose the number of spins you want to play automatically.
3. Click on Start.
