Genting Casino has announced the addition of French Roulette to their roster of online casino games. A variation on the world’s most popular casino game, French Roulette features a single zero wheel, and users can place both Standard and Announce Bets.
Whilst French Roulette differs in table layout to its European and American Roulette cousins, the game is essentially the same at heart. Featuring a spinning wheel centred on a stationary hub with a small ball spun in the opposite direction, the ball eventually settles into a pocket numbered 1 to 36, or alternating black and red colour, with an additional green 0. Users playing French Roulette online are offered the chance to make wagers on individual numbers with a payoff of 35 to 1, and to split their wagers between any group of numbers which a single chip can reach. Due to the use of the single zero wheel in French Roulette, these standard bets are designed with a payoff that produces a lower house edge than for standard roulette. Players will also find the names of standard bets in French on the table. For example, Even and Odd bets are referred to as ‘Pair’ and ‘Impair’.
Users who play French Roulette online can also play Announce Bets on the race track betting area, which is divided into three areas: ‘Voisins du Zero’, ‘Tiers du Cylinder’ and ‘Orphelins’. These allow the player to place bets which cover various sections of the roulette wheel. For instance, the section ‘Voisins du Zero’ (neighbours of zero) encompasses 17 numbers surrounding and including the green 0. The race track can also be used to place a Neighbours bet, which covers 5 neighbouring numbers on the roulette wheel. Additionally, French Roulette features the use of the ‘La Partage’ rule, where the player loses only half of their even-money bets when the spinning result is zero.
For those who would like to play French Roulette, this elegant variation of a classic is now available online at Genting Casino.
