European Roulette Game Tutorial

Just like all Netent roulette games also European Roulette is a quite simple game to play: you need to place a chip on a number (or combination of numbers) of your choice and spin the roulette wheel with the ball. The pocket on the wheel that receives the ball is the winning number and if you’ve placed a bet on that number you’ll win and you’ll be paid out. Besides the “simple” gameplay, enhanced by bet high-lighting, mouse-over messages and voice announcements to help the players place their bets, European Roulette has some extra features worth mentioning too. Below we describe and explain the various betting options and these extra features.

Inside Bets

The inside bets are placed on the inner field of the table, on the numbers 0 up to 36. There are 5 types of inside bets: Straight, Split, Street of Three line, Corner and Six line.

  • Straight: a bet on a single number by placing a chip on the box that corresponds to that number.
  • Split: a bet on two adjacent numbers, horizontally or vertically, by placing a chip on the line between the two adjacent boxes.
  • Street of Three Line: a bet on a row of three numbers on a single horizontal line by placing a chip on the outer line of the number on the far left of the three numbers.
  • Corner: a bet on four numbers that form a square, by placing a chip on the cross between the four numbers.
  • Six Line: a bet on 6 adjacent numbers at the same time. If you want to bet on 1-6 for example, you place a chip on the T-junction on the far left between the 1 and the 4.

Outside Bets

Outside bets are placed on the boxes around the inner field with the numbers 1 to 36. Basically there are 5 options to place an outside bet: Column, Dozen, High or Low, Red or Black and Odd or Even.

  • Column Bet: a bet on one of the three vertical rows (left, middle, right) by placing a chip in the box at the bottom of the row, you then bet 12 numbers at the same time.
  • Dozen Bet: a bet on 12 numbers in three consecutive rows, by placing a chip in one of the following areas: 1ste 12, 2nd 12, 3rd 12.
  • High or Low bets: a bet on the high numbers (19-36) or the low numbers (1-18).
  • Red or Black: a bet on a color (red or black) instead of on a number.
  • Odd or Even: a bet on odd or even numbers.

Race Track Bets’

In the lower left corner of the screen you see a separate betting track, also known as “the Race Track”. If you click on the track it will be opened and placed between the roulette wheel and the betting field. This track contains the same numbers as the wheel and in the same order. On the Race Track the following 5 types of bets are possible:

  • Tiers: a bet on the numbers 27, 13, 36, 11, 30, 8, 23, 10, 5, 24, 16 and 33.
  • Orphelins: a bet on the numbers 17, 34, 6, 1, 20, 14, 31 and 9.
  • Voisins: a bet on the numbers 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, 26, 0, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2, and 25 (the 8 numbers on the wheel on each side of the “0”).
  • Zero: a bet on the numbers 12, 35, 3, 26, 0, 32 and 15 .
  • Neighbors: a bet on 1 up to 8 neighboring numbers on each side of any given number. For example: “neighbor 1 on number 5” includes numbers 10, 5 and 24 or “neighbor 3 on number 22” includes numbers 14, 31, 9, 22, 18, 29 and 7.

Special Bets panel

Next to the Race Track there are 3 buttons of which the one in the middle with a star-symbol opens the “Favorite Bets” menu. Here you can store your bets that have "favored" your casino account the most. If you click on the little cross in the upper right corner of this menu the Special Bets panel will open above. Here you’ll find another 35 “special betting” options and by the mouse-over function each of the numbers included in these bets are high-lighted.

Dynamic Statistics Billboards

On the left of the Favorite Bets button there’s the Statistics Billboard button which, if opened, is an extended version of the billboard in the upper right corner of the screen. The statistics billboard shows the game’s (statistic) history and which numbers are “hot” and which numbers are “cold”. Both billboards are “dynamic” which means bets can be placed by clicking on the information showed. Therefore they offer the following bet options: Red or Black, Odd or Even and Hot or Cold numbers.

European Roulette Bet limits

At the bottom right of the screen you see a number of chips. When you click the arrows left and right of the chips you will get more options. You can play European Roulette with 1, 2, 5, 25, 100 and 500 euro chips. These can be bet multiple times and may be combined. The minimum bet is 1 euro and the maximum bet is 500 euros. When you bet a combination, you can see the total amount bet at the bottom of the screen.

Undoing, redoing or doubling bets

On either side of the chips there are four buttons that allow you to double all your placed bets, to undo the last placed bet, to clear all bets or to re-bet from previous game round.

Pay table / Win Plan

Above the spin button in the lower right corner the maximum (€ 500) and minimum ( € 1) possible bets are displayed. If you move your mouse over this region the paytable / win plan will pop-up.
