French Roulette

French Roulette is the most played table game in the world. The odds are better than her sister version, because you have to guess the right number between 37 (36 numbers plus 0), instead of 38 at the American Roulette (36 numbers plus 0 and 00). The goal of this game is quite simple, you have to predict the next number drawn by the roulette.However the rang of bet is large and can be a bit confusing at first. Each kind of bet has his payout. I’m going to explain how it works.

The bets and payouts

The minimum bet is 1€, the maximum bet on a single number is 10€ and the maximum bet in total on the table cannot exceeds 500€. You can bet on:

  • A single number, (select a coin and click on the number) > pays 35 to 1
  • on 2 numbers, (place your coins between 2 consecutive numbers) > pays 17 to 1
  • on 3 numbers, (place your bet at the end of a row) > pays 11 to 1
  • on 4 numbers, (place your bet between 4 numbers in square) > pays 8 to 1
  • on 6 numbers, (place your bet at the end of 2 rows) > pays 5 to 1
  • on 12 numbers, (place your bet at the end of a column or on 1st, 2nd or 3rd Dozen) > pays 2 to 1
  • on 18 numbers, (place your bet on passe/manque or red/black or odd/even) > pays 1 to 1

There is a simple trick to calculate those odds, you must subtract the numerals bet to 36 and divide the result by the numerals. Let’s take two examples. If you bet on 2 numbers: 36-2=34 and 34/2=17. If you bet on 6 numbers: 36-6=30 and 30/6=5. Pretty easy no?

We like the French Roulette powered by Netent because they are offering cool features like “Hot and Cold numbers” or “Black or Red”. Those statistics are calculated by the software. It analyses the previous hands to find the numbers that haven’t be drawn for a while. On the “Black or Red” and “Odd or Even” you will always find a 2% between the two colours. That’s because of the 0 (which is green). Actually the=is 0 represents the advantage of the casino. Payouts are based on 36 numbers when there are 37 with the 0. With the American Roulette and its 38 numbers the casino’s advantage is bigger, that’s probably why the French Roulette is by far the players’ favourite!
