For quite some time all the new games added by the leading software provider Realtime Gaming (RTG) to its portfolio have been the Real Series online slots. Therefore it must have come as a surprise to players at RTG online casinos to see French Roulette added to the Specialty Games category. RTG lists online roulette variants under Specialty Games and not under Table Games like other software providers. The first thing noticed about French Roulette is its sophistication and sleekness compared to European Roulette and American Roulette that have been till now the stock online roulette variants. Software technology has advanced tremendously in the last few years and this is reflected in the visuals and features.
French Roulette is the variant played in the land casinos in France. It is structured and played very much like European Roulette with only the single zero on the wheel. The layout is also similar except that all the numbers have a uniform red background and not the red or black background depending on the color on the wheel. However, players can ascertain the color from the wheel that displays the number on which the ball has fallen. Another factor that players at RTG online casinos will have to get used to is that the bets are named in French. Therefore odd and even become pair and impair and red and black become rouge and noir. Similarly the three number street bets are transversale and the six number bets are soixante.
The Neighbor and Call bets are a specialty of French Roulette. A button exposes the wheel layout along with a complete list of bets on offer. Bets can be selected directly from the list and the chips will directly be placed on the layout. The main bets are Voisins, Orphelins, Tiers, Red Splits and Black Splits. There are others as well and players at RTG online casinos will become familiar with them as they wager more and more.
Many roulette players like to place unusual and unique patterns based on their lucky numbers. RTG French Roulette allows for eight such patterns to be saved so that players can create the pattern on the layout with a single selection. Players must first create the pattern on the layout and click the Favorites button. They can then provide a name to the pattern and save it. Thereafter players only have to open Favorites and click on the desired pattern name to place the bet. RTG French Roulette also provides for Auto Play of the type available in its slots games.
The highlight of French Roulette is the La Partage benefit that really differentiates this variant from European Roulette. Under the La Partage rule half the amount on even money bets will be returned to the player in the event that zero is called.
