Live UK Roulette Rules
Live UK Roulette is played according to the standard European Roulette rules. The game makes use of a normal roulette wheel that has been split into 37 numbered pockets, from 0 to 36 inclusive. The croupier releases a ball spinning into the wheel and players just need to bet on which pocket the ball will stop in.
However, rather than just betting on single numbers, the game offers a huge amount of betting flexibility. This is down to the layout of the wheel and the betting area. The numbers in the wheel are not sequential and the pockets are coloured alternating red and black. Furthermore, the betting area has many groupings of numbers. This means that players can bet on groups of numbers that share characteristics, such as all the even or odd numbers, or they can bet on sets of numbers that are grouped together on the wheel or betting area.
This means that there are many different types of bet available. The bets are split into two categories formed by where the chips are placed in relation to the betting area, Inside Bets and Outside Bets.
The Inside Bets are:
- Straight – A bet on a single number
- Street – A bet on a row of three numbers on the betting area
- Split – A bet on two adjacent numbers
- Corner – A bet on four numbers that form a square on the betting area
- Line – A bet on two streets covering six numbers
- Trio – A bet on three numbers including 0
The Outside Bets are:
- Column Bet – A bet on a column of 12 numbers on the betting area
- Dozen Bet – A bet on a set of 12 numbers, 1 – 12, 13 – 24 or 25 – 36.
- Red/Black – A bet on all the red or all the black numbers
- Even/Odd – A bet on all the even or all the odd numbers
- Low/High Bet: A bet on whether the ball will land on a low or high number (1 – 18 or 19 – 36).
These bets can be used together to create betting patterns that cover large segments of the wheel. There is a second racetrack-shaped betting area where some very common betting patterns can be placed with just one click:
- Voisins du Zero: A bet on the neighbours of 0 on the wheel, it includes every number between 22 and 25.
- Tier: A bet on the area of the wheel opposite 0, the bet covers about a third of the wheel between 33 and 27.
- Orphelins: A bet on the numbers 17, 34, 6, 1, 20, 14, 31 and 9.
- Zero: A bet on seven numbers surrounding zero on the wheel
Live UK Roulette also has a number of shortcuts for placing the following standard betting patterns:
- Final Bet: This is a bet on all the numbers that share the same last number. For example, a final bet on the number 1 would place chips on 1, 11, 21, and 31.
- Complete Bet: This covers all the betting positions associated with a certain number. The bet consists of a Straight Bet, Split Bet, Corner Bet, Street Bet and Line Bet.
- Half-Complete Bet: This covers the same betting positions as the Complete bet, but without the Street and Line Bets.
How a Round Works
Live UK Roulette is a very simple game to play. Just place your chips on the relevant sections of the betting area in the allocated time. Once the time has expired, the croupier releases the ball and after it stops, you are paid for any winning bets. You can then begin betting on the next round.
Live UK Roulette offers the regular Roulette payouts. The smallest payout is 1:1 for Reds, Blacks, Odds or Evens. Column and Dozen bets payout at 2:1, Line bets payout at 5:1, Corner bets payout at 8:1, Street bets payout at 11:1, Split bets pay at 17:1, and Straight Up bets offer the largest payouts of 35:1.
It is possible to create and save betting patterns using the Bet Creator. The patterns can then be placed very easily in the future without having to reposition chips on the table.
The Lucky Dip button places a random number of Straight Up bets.
Statistics and Results
The game allows you to see the results of the last 100, 200, 500 or 1000 rounds. It will also show hot and cold areas of the wheel as well as percentage breakdowns of which bet types won the rounds (for instance, it may show that 48% of the rounds ended with a black number).
