Live Roulette Lounge French Rules
French Roulette follows extremely similar rules to European Roulette, so if you have already played one you will have no problem adapting to the other. The game features the spinning wheel that has been split into 37 numbered segments, 0 to 36 inclusive. The croupier releases a ball into the wheel and players bet on which segment the ball will stop on.
As is standard in Roulette, the numbers are coloured red or black, except for 0 which is green. Furthermore, they do not run sequentially around the wheel and they have a very specific layout on the betting area. This is done in order to expand the betting options. It allows players to bet on groups of numbers that share characteristics, such as the red numbers or odd numbers, as well as groups of numbers that are formed by the layout of the wheel and betting area.
This means that there are many different types of bets and the basic ones are:
- Plein (Straight Up): A bet on an individual number.
- Cheval (Split): A bet on two adjacent numbers on the betting area.
- Transversale Pleine (Street): A bet on three numbers that make up a line on the betting area.
- Carré (Corner): A bet on four numbers whose corners meet on the betting area.
- Transversale de Quatre (Four): A bet on the numbers 0, 1, 2 and 3.
- Transversale Simple (Line): A bet on two streets that are next to each other on the betting area.
- Colonne (Column): A bet on one of the columns of 12 numbers on the betting area.
- Douzaine (Dozen): A bet on the first group of numbers (1 – 12), the second (13 – 24) or the third (25 – 36).
- Rouge/Noir (Red/Black): A bet on all the black or all the red numbers.
- Pair / Impair (Even/Odd): A bet on all the even or all the odd numbers.
- Manque (1-18) / Passe (19-36) (Low/High): A bet on whether the ball will land on a low number (1 – 18) or a high number (19 – 36).
There is a second betting area called the Racetrack and there you will find shortcuts to place a group of bets called Announce Bets:
- Voisins du Zero: A bet on the numbers that are next to 0 on the wheel, it covers the numbers 22 through to 25.
- Tiers Du Cylindre: A bet on the numbers that are directly opposite 0 on the wheel.
- Orphelins en Plein: A bet on the numbers that are not included in the Voisins du Zero or the Tiers Du Cylindre.
- Orphelins a Cheval: A special type of Orphelins bet that requires fewer chips.
- Jeu 7/9: A bet on all numbers that ending in 7, 8 and 9 (7, 8, 9, 17, 18, 19, 27, 28, 29).
- Jeu 0: A bet on the numbers that are immediately next to zero on the wheel.
- Finales en Plein: A bet on all the numbers that end in a specific digit (for example, 4, 14, 24, 34).
- Finales a Cheval: A series of bets that are placed on numbers ending in two digits. For example if a Finales a Cheval 5/6 is placed then chips are placed on 5/6, 15/16, 25/26, 35/36.
- Neighbour Bets: A bet on an individual number and between one and four numbers that are next to it on the wheel.
How a Round Works
You need to position your chips on the relevant segments on the betting area. When the betting time is up, the croupier releases the ball within the wheel. The ball will come to a stop you are then paid for any winning bets.
The game offers the standard Roulette payouts. The smallest payout is 1:1 for betting on large groups of numbers, such as the Manque, Passe, Pair, Impair, Rouge and Noir bets. Colonne and Douzaine bets payout at 2:1, Transversale Simple bets payout at 5:1, Carré bets payout at 8:1, Transversale Pleine bets payout at 11:1, Cheval bets pay at 17:1, and Plein bets offer the largest payouts of 35:1.
La Partage Rule
This rule separates French Roulette from regular European Roulette. It states that if the ball lands on 0 then half of all even money bets are returned, thereby slightly improving the odds in the player’s favour.
