French Roulette is a form of roulette now offered in most online casinos. The game is played on a roulette wheel designed to hold the numbers 1 through 36 and the single green zero.
When you first decide to play French Roulette you have an option to play for free or for real money. It is always sensible to have a few free spins to get used to the nuances of the table. Even in the online world there will be slight differences on each online site.
The main difference in French Roulette concerns the betting that takes place on the zero. This variant on the theme is known as “la partage”. If the winning number is the zero then half of the even-money bets are returned to the players. As you would expect all the bets on the table itself are written in French.
When you first choose to play you will be asked to select a table limit and then you are taken to a screen that hosts all of the bets, odds, min and max bets. Next you choose your denomination for betting and generally can choose between 0.01, 0.1, 0.5, 1, 5, 10 and 25 chips.
The system for betting is a simple click procedure. You click on your betting amount and then click again on the area you wish to bet. If you wish to double, triple or quadruple your bet then just click in the requisite area multiple times. After you have double-checked that all of your bets are accurate you press the spin wheel and cross your fingers.
If you lose just make sure you swear – in French!
