French Roulette - The only way to play Roulette!

If we translate the term ”roulette”, we end up with ”little wheel”. The game itself offers an entertaining gambling activity, which is considered to have a formidable potential for gains. To decide the winning number and colour, a croupier spins a wheel in one direction and then spins a ball in the other direction around a tilted circular track running around the circumference of the wheel. The ball eventually loses momentum and drops onto the wheel and into one of 37 (in French/European roulette) or 38 (in American roulette) coloured and numbered pockets on the wheel.

French Roulette versus American Roulette

If we are to compare and contrast the French and the American roulette variations, we should see that the American roulette table shows both a single zero and a double zero, whereas the French table shows only a single zero. In addition to this, all the numbers on the French table are white in colour, whilst all numbers, excluding the zero and the double zero on the American roulette table, are coloured either in black or in red.

Played quite often at casinos in Monte Carlo, French Roulette is slightly different than the other roulette variations, in that it features a unique table layout. As well as this, in this casino table game players are equipped with the lowest house advantage of any other roulette variation, as due to one additional game play rule, the edge is reduced to 1.35%.
