How To Play
Live UK Roulette follows the standard European Roulette rules. The game is built around a spinning wheel that is divided into 37 numbered pockets, from 0 to 36. The UK-based croupier releases a ball into the wheel and players need to bet on which pocket they think it will eventually stop in.
However, players are not restricted to betting on just one number. The game has been designed to maximise the betting options. For example, the wheel’s pockets alternate between red and black in colour, and the numbers in the wheel are not sequential. Furthermore, the betting area has the numbers arranged in a grid. This means that players can bet on groups of numbers formed by the layout of the wheel or betting area, as well as groups of numbers that share characteristics, such as all the black numbers.
This results in many different types of bet and it is important to understand all of them:
- Straight Up: A bet on an individual number.
- Split Bet: A bet on two adjacent numbers on the betting area.
- Street Bet: A bet on three numbers in a vertical line (a street) on the betting area.
- Corner Bet: A bet on four numbers that meet on the betting area.
- Four Bet: A bet on the numbers 0, 1, 2 and 3.
- Line Bet: A bet on six numbers, two streets that are adjacent to one another on the betting area.
- Column Bet: A bet on the twelve numbers in any horizontal line on the betting area.
- Dozen Bet: A bet on the first, second or third group of 12 numbers (1-12, 13-24 and 25-36).
- Red/Black Bet: A bet on the ball landing on a particular colour.
- Even/Odd Bet: A bet on all the even or 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 standard bets can then be combined to form betting patterns. Some betting patterns are very common and there is a special Racetrack betting area where the following patterns can be placed with ease:
- 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.
- Neighbours: A bet on five numbers that are next to one another on the wheel.
Live UK Roulette offers the standard payouts ranging from 1:1 for bets on large groups (such as all the Reds or Odd numbers), right up to 35:1 for straight up bets.
There are a number of other betting patterns and in the game menu, there are shortcuts to place the following bets:
- Final Bet: This is a bet on all the numbers that have the same last number. For example, a final bet on the number 0 would place chips on 0, 10, 20 and 30.
- Complete Bet: This covers all the betting positions associated with a certain number. The covered Complete Bets betting positions are Straight Bet, Split Bet, Corner Bet, Street Bet and Line Bet.
- Half-Complete Bet: This covers the same betting positions as the Complete bets, but without the Street and Line Bets.
- Neighbours: This is a bet on a number and the two numbers either side of it on the roulette wheel. The bet requires five chips and they are all placed as straight bets.
Players who design their own betting patterns can save them using the Bet Creator. This means that in future the patterns can be placed with just a couple of clicks rather than having to reposition all of the chips. There is also the option to use a Lucky Dip to place a random selection of Straight Up bets.
Live UK Roulette will also show the results of the last 100, 200, 500 or 1000 rounds together with statistical breakdown of the results. It is possible to see hot and cold areas of the wheel and the result of previous rounds analysed by percentages, such as how many of the rounds ended with an odd or even result.
