What is the best way to win at French Roulette?
The game’s goal is to make educated guesses on which number the boule, spun by the croupier, will land on. One is eligible for proportional awards depending on the combination chosen.
The rectangular table (table de jeu) has a green baize (tapis verte) surface that is almost fully cover with a grid (tableau). Numbers, columns, six lines, and simple combinations make up the grid.
At one end of the table, there is a roulette wheel. This is made up of a wooden wheel (le cylindre) with a rotating metal plate inside. The plate will divide into 37 pockets (cases), comprising a zero pocket, eighteen red numerals. Eighteen black numbers that alternate from 1 to 36. Mount atop a precise mechanism. Next to the roulette wheel is the “bank,” which contains various forms and values of chips (jetons et plaques).
A Table Supervisor is present (Chef de Table)(Chef de Table). Whose role it is to supervise the game and ensure that all rules should follow, as well as three croupiers, one on the right (droite), one on the left (gauche), and one in front of the Chef de Table (bout de table). Their role is to do everything necessary to keep the game running smoothly and efficiently.
The game is relatively basic, and it is betting against the bank by predicting where the croupier’s (le bouler) tossed ball would land. Winning bets will pay out in direct proportion to the amount of chips wager and the type of combination chosen.
The croupier’s traditional call signals the start of the game, and it ends with the customary phase of “Rien ne va plus,” which occurs when the boule will toss (the boule will spin in the opposite direction to which the wheel is turning). After this moment, no more bets can be put, and only the Chef de Table can make an exception.
When the boule lands in one of the wheel’s thirty-seven pockets, it determines the winning number.
Le Bouler reveals the winning number and simple combinations in French (rouge o noir, pair o impair, manque o passe). The acts of the two croupiers on the right and left are as follows.
One uses a rake (rateau) to indicate the winning number on the grid. Then lists the multiple winning combinations in French before raking in the losing chips. While the other pays out the winnings one by one, in the following order: columns, dozen, simple combinations, six lines, streets, corner, split, and straight bets.
If the winning number is even, the right-hand croupier collects the chips, while the left-hand croupier pays the winners. If the winning number is odd, on the other hand, they switch roles.
With columns and dozen payouts, the winning chips with the lowest value are paying first, following the highest. Payment for basic combinations begins with the chips furthest away from the croupier who is paying, regardless of the stake. By placing chips of the same value next to the initial stake, column and dozen winnings are going to pay. With several combinations, the croupier uses the rake to pay out one winning bet at the moment, starting with the minor stake and working up to the largest.
Suppose the boule lands on 0, all bets on 0 and its multiple combinations win. In that case, columns and dozen bets lose, and simple combination stakes are halve and “imprison” (enfermées) on the corresponding line.
The croupier releases “imprisoned only once” stakes if they win, but the bank claims them if they lose.
Stakes that have been “imprison for successive rounds” (there is a three-round maximum, In the fourth round at the stake is still valid, it is split.) must win. The same number of times they have been imprison to be release.
When the winning number is 0, the player has the option of withdrawing half of the stake left “à partager” (the bank retains the other half). Leaving it where it is, or shifting it to another easy combination (even though it stays imprisoned).
