French roulette is a variant of the game of Roulette. It gained popularity during the French Revolution. We can translate “roulette” to “little wheel.” As we have already mentioned, the game itself is a fun gambling activity that has a huge potential for winning.

French Roulette versus American Roulette

French roulette is played quite often at casinos, Monte Carlo. It features a unique table layout. This casino table game has the lowest house edge of all roulette variations. It also features a unique table layout. is the edge.

The game is played on the European standard wheel . It has 37 divisions where numbers 1 through 36 can be found, while 0 can only be found. The numbers 1 through 36 are alternately colored in black and red, while the single zero is in green.

Comparing the American Roulette variants, it is important to note that the American table has both a single and double zero while the French table only has one zero. All numbers on the French table, except the zero and double zero, are white.

The numbers on both the American and French roulette wheels are located in different ways.

Last, but not least: The outside betting position on the American and French roulette tables is different.

The American variant’s outside bets are placed usually on the left-hand side of the table layout. The French outside betting field is divided in half and placed on both sides of each side. Every outside bet has its French moniker visible on the table. Sometimes, the English translation is also visible right below it.

Any player can only predict the number of pockets where the roulette ball will settle. To do this, players place bets on a number and the dealer spins the roulette wheel the opposite direction. The respective players are paid once the ball lands in the pocket with the particular number.

There are many types of bets available

The roulette table’s betting layout consists of two sections: individual numbers and group bets. French roulette offers two types of bets: inside or outside. Inside bets can be placed on one number, adjacent numbers or small groups of numbers. Outside bets involve larger numbers.

Most bets have different odds of winning and payouts. With the exception of the payout for the column bet, these payouts and chances of winning are not usually listed on the board.
