NetEnt’s French Roulette table is always open and free, with no need for a mass scramble to get your chips on the right selections before “no more bets, please”.  We’ve also got a trailer that will allow you sample the atmosphere.

French Roulette Game Tutorial

The goal of French Roulette is quite simple, you will have to guess on which numbered box the ball will drop. You place a bet on the field and wait until the wheel stops spinning and the ball drops in a box. This may seem very easy, but the many betting options certainly raise the excitement of this table game.
We will describe these betting options below.

Inside Bets

The inside bets are the bets that are placed in the center area of the table. To make it a bit easier for you, you can find the names of the bets below also on your screen when you move over the field with your mouse.

  • 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

The outside bets are bets that are placed in the areas around the single numbers. Here too the bets will be shown on screen when you go over the area with your mouse.

  • 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.

Notice Board Bets

On the right of the screen you can see the notice board. When you start the game, you can find the hot and cold numbers here. Below that you can see the percentages of how often they occur, and also the percentages of the odd and even numbers. When you move your mouse over the hot or cold numbers on the notice board, they will light up on the betting area. The numbers will change every round. You can place bets on these numbers by first clicking a chip and then clicking the notice board.
You can also find the winning numbers of every round on the notice board. It will also keep track of your game history, so you can see which numbers were winning numbers in the last rounds.

French Roulette Bet limits

You can play French Roulette for 1, 5, 25, or 100 euro chips. These chips can of course be bet multiple times and can be combined. There is a minimum bet of 1 euro per round. The maximum bet per round is 500 euros.

Pay Table / Win Plan

The pay table of French Roulette is opened by moving your mouse over the min/max sign. Here you can find the payouts for both the inside and outside bets. You cannot find the notice board bets here, but these are 35:1.

The speaker turns the sound on or off with one click.
The question mark opens the help menu.
