Live French Roulette Rules
Live French Roulette has almost exactly the same rules as Live European Roulette. The game focuses on the spinning wheel that has been divided into 37 numbered segments, 0 to 36 inclusive. In fact, the game takes its name for the French for ‘little wheel’. The croupier releases a ball into the wheel and you need to bet on which segment the ball will stop on.
In order to expand the betting possibilities beyond betting on individual numbers, the segments on the wheel are coloured black or red, except for zero, which is green. In addition, the numbers do not run sequentially round the wheel and the betting area has a very specific layout. Thanks to this, there are many different types of bets and it is possible to bet on groups of numbers as well as individual numbers.
The basic Live French Roulette bets 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 here 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, 1, 11, 21, 31).
- Finales a Cheval: A series of bets that are placed on numbers ending in two digits. For example if a Finales a Cheval 3/4 is placed then chips are placed on 3/4, 13/14, 23/24, 33/34.
- 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
Simply place your chips on the relevant segments on the betting area. When the betting time is up, the croupier will release the ball within the wheel. The ball will come to a stop and then you are paid out 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.
