French Roulette Game Tutorial

French Roulette basically follows the same rules of the game as it is played in a normal (conventional) casino. The player needs to guess in which numbered box on the roulette wheel (in French Roulette with numbers ranging from 0 to 36) the ball released on the spinning roulette wheel (in the opposite direction) finally will end. If a player has placed a bet on that particular number on the betting field (or on the right color, or on the number being odd or even) the player wins a certain pay out, according to the pay-table of the game. Besides “inside” and “outside” bets, French Roulette has some additional game features (as explained below) that will help the player place bets and keep track of the game-play.

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 Street of 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 betting field 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.
  • Stret of 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 1 to 36 numbered inner field. There are 5 standard options to place an outside bet: Column, Dozen, High or Low, Red or Black numbers and Odd or Even numbers.

  • Column Bet: a bet on one of the three horizontal rows of the bet field (upper, middle and bottom row) by placing a bet on one of the 3 boxes at the far right of the inner betting field. With a column bet you simultaneously bet on all the 12 numbers in the same row.
  • Dozen Bet: a bet on 12 consecutive numbers of the inner betting field, by placing a chip in one of the 3 boxes on the lower right-hand side of the betting field. These boxes are marked as P (Premier, numbers 1-12), M (Moyenne, numbers 13-24) and D (Dernière, numbers 25-36).
  • High or Low bets (Passe / Manque): a bet on the high numbers (19-36, Passe) or the low numbers (1-18, Manque) of the betting field.
  • Red or Black: a bet on the color (red or black) of the numbers.
  • Odd or Even (Impair / Pair): a bet on odd or even numbers.

Race Track Bets

By clicking on the button in between the “i” marked button and the “Open statistics” button (on the lower left part of the betting field, underneath “Passe”) a separate betting track, also known as “the Race Track” will open under the roulette wheel. This track contains the same numbers as the wheel and in the same order. On the Race Track betting field 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.

Favorite and Special Bets panel

Clicking on the button with a star-symbol below the “Passe” box of the betting field will open the “Favorite and Special Bets” menu. Here you can store the bets that have "favored" your casino account the most to instantly place them again. On the right side of the panel 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.

French Roulette Bet limits

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

Undoing, redoing or doubling bets

On the right-hand 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-place the bet from the previous game round.

Pay table

By clicking on the button below the “Passe” box of the betting field marked with an “I” the pay table of the game will pop-up. Here you can see which most common bets will pay out if you win. To see the pay out scheme of all possible bets the game rules need to be consulted.
