French Roulette

French Roulette is the foundation of the whole game, as Roulette was invented exactly in France. It features a Single Zero Roulette Wheel and a very low house edge of 1.35%. This is actually the type of Roulette Game that features the lowest house edge from all. This is due to specific set of rules, also known as La Partage and En Prison, but we’ll get to that later.

French Roulette Wheel

As already mentioned, French Roulette Wheel features a Single Zero, much like a similar Roulette Type – European Roulette.

This is the sequence that is used for the wheel in this variation of the game:

  • 0-32-15-19-4-21-2-25-17-34-6-27-13-36-11-30-8-23-10-5-24-16-33-1-20-14-31-9-22-18-29-7-28-12-35-3-26

The wheel is actually the same as the one used in European type.

French Roulette Table Layout

The table layout is what differs French Roulette from other variations. While others use a one sided layout, French variation features one that is expanded to both sides. However, it shouldn’t be too confusing to understand the bets, as everything is also written in English. The D12/M12/P12 stands for number dozens, which is pretty much the only thing that might cause confusion.

La Partage & En Prison Rules

These two rules are specific to French Roulette and is exactly what makes it stand out from other variations. Note that these rules are not used together and either one or second is offered.

However, both are used to kind of insure wagers that are made on Even Money BetsEn Prison is the most common rule, that allows a player to either get a half of his wager back in the case of zero falling on the wheel.

La Partage is even better as it allows player do decide between either getting half of his wager back instantly or leaving it there for another spin. This basically allows you to free-roll a spin.

Even Money Bets are ones as Odd/Even, Red/Black and 1-18/19-36.
