French Roulette

French Roulette is the Oldest Form of Roulette

Online slots games are casino games everyone loves to play, but for sheer entertainment there is no game more thrilling than roulette.  And what is even more attractive is that today, of course, you can play from the comfort of your own home, without having to go to a land based casino.

French Roulette is one of the three main version s of roulette, and was probably the very earliest form of the game. Roulette gained popularity in France during the years following the French Revolution, and is still played in its original form. In Europe particularly, roulette comprises over fifty percent of the legal yearly casino revenue.

The Attraction of the Spinning Wheel

These days every casino, and every online casino, will offer some form of roulette. In fact, the image of the roulette wheel has come to signify the whole casino industry.

French Roulette is much like European Roulette, and features one zero on the wheel, instead of the two zeros that is a feature of the American form of the game. In French Roulette you are presented with the wheel and the betting table, and you will see the French words on the table, like manque, passé, impair and pair, together with their translations.

Different Kinds of Bets

You can click on the chip values you want and place them on the table. You can then place your bet, and you can place bets on single numbers or groups of numbers or most other options that you can think of. On the inside of the layout you can place a wager between one and six numbers. Payouts will depend on the combinations of numbers that you have wagered on.

The outside bets include red or black numbers, odds or evens, low numbers 1 to 18, and high numbers from 19 to 36. All bets on any of these numbers are known as inside bets, and you can place wagers on as many combinations of numbers that you wish. Outside bets in the online version of French Roulette are those placed on numbers other than 0 and 1 to 36. They are the even money and column bets. As French Roulette is a game of pure chance, when you bet on a red number you are betting that you will be lucky enough to have a red number turning up after a spin of the wheel. The same applies when you bet black.

Racetrack and Open Favourite Bets

There are also some special bets that are available, and they are accessed by clicking on the button marked Open Racetrack or Open Favourite Bets to view these options.

A Racetrack bet is a quick way to bet on a number and then the numbers surrounding it on the wheel. Place the chip on the racetrack to view all the options open. When you open the Special Bets in French Roulette you will see a long list of options to place bets which will enable you to choose certain groups of numbers. You can also create and save your favourite bets here for easy future use.

When you have placed all your bets, click on the button in the right corner to get the game starting and the wheel spinning. After that, you will be watching in hope that the ball will settle in a number that you have chosen, and which will win you huge riches. Once the wheel stops spinning, all wins will be paid out, and the betting and spinning can begin again.
