The French Roulette Guide
French roulette consists of a cylinder of 37 numbers and a playmat. Hosted by a table manager and three croupiers, with no limit on the number of players, this legendary casino game
How to play French roulette
1: “Ladies and Gentlemen, place your bets.”
The croupier spins the cylinder and announces “place your bets” while throwing the ball. Players can then place their chips on the mat or ask one of the dealers to do so. This is called ” making an announcement. ” Depending on the type of bet, the chip can be placed on a square or straddling two, three, or four squares.
2: “Nothing is right.”
As soon as the croupier announces that “nothing is going well,” you can neither bet nor move your chips.
3: “The game is over.”
This announcement is made when the ball makes contact with the squares of the wheel and begins to bounce from squares to squares before coming to rest on one of the 37 squares.
The croupier then announces the number is drawn and the three groups of ties to which he belongs. After collecting the losing bets, the dealer proceeds to pay the winning bets.
The carpet of French roulette
The “simple chances” are located on each side of the carpet; they are: red, black, even, odd, miss, pass. These are the most interesting bets in roulette in terms of odds.
Case of getting out of zero and being put in prison
In the event of leaving zero, the bets on simple chances (Black, Red, Even, Odd, Miss, or Pass) can either become bets “in prison” (not recommended) or be shared between the bank and the player.
When putting in prison, the wager is placed on the line for this purpose on the play mat. The next move decides the fate of this wager: if the simple chance that was played at the start wins, the player recovers his full amount.
Putting in prison gives an additional advantage to the casino; therefore, it is to be avoided and prefer him to split the bet. This particular rule decreases the casino’s advantage in French roulette to 1.35%.
The other types of roulette differ in the layout of the table and the distribution of numbers and possible bets. Also, the rule of zero (imprisonment) only exists in French roulette.
