Wheel and Table
The first thing you should know is the following fact: French roulette wheel is the same with European roulette one; it is a single-zero wheel which has 37 pockets on it - 0 green pocket and 1-36 black and red pockets. The differences begin when we have a look at the French Roulette table layout:
- All numbers are colored in red there, but this is just a design and this fact does not play any role during the game.
- The table layout here is in French (it's a logic, is not it?); so, do not be lazy to remember or just write down some special terms in French which would be necessary for you if you decide to play French Roulette:
- Pair = Even
- Impair = Odd
- Mangue = Low numbers (1-18)
- Passe = High numbers (19-36)
French Roulette has one unique rule which is impossible to meet at any other roulette variation. This rule is called to be La Partage and it lets a player taking a half of his/her bet back in a case the winning number is 0; a player can also decide to leave the same bet for the next round but s/he will lose the whole bet then in a case of 0.
As far as we know, roulette has 2 types of bets - inside and outside bets; they are possible to find in French Roulette too. But that is not all: French Roulette has one additional type of bets - Cell Bets, and there are 5 of them in French Roulette:
