Finales Bets in French Roulette

Call bets are special roulette bets that originated in French Roulette, but are now offered in many online versions of European Roulette and American Roulette as well. Among the call bets is a type of bet known as Finales, which as its name suggests is based on the final or ending number. This lesson explains the various Finales bets, how they are wagered and how they pay out. The bets described in this lesson have been taken from French Roulette offered in Microgaming online casinos.

There are two types of Finales bets. The simpler type is the Finales en Plein bets. These bets are specified by a single digit, like Finales en Plein 0. The Finales en Plein 0 covers all numbers on the roulette layout ending in 0, which are 0, 10, 20 and 30. One chip of the chosen size is placed on each of the four numbers. If the chosen chip size is 1.00 credit the total wager is 4.00 credits. If the number called after the spin is not any of the four numbers then the entire wager of four credits is lost. If any of the four numbers are called the payout is 35 to 4. The Finales en Plein 1 covers 1, 11, 21 and 31. The scenario is identical till the Finales en Plein 6.

Since the last number on the roulette layout is 36, the Finales en Plein 7 covers only three numbers, which are 7, 17 and 27. If a chip of 1.00 credit is chosen then the total wager is 3.00 credits and on winning the payout is 35 to 3.

The second type of Finales bets is Finales a Cheval. This involves partial wagers on split numbers. There are five types of Finales a Cheval bets. The first type wagers three chips across three pairs of split numbers. A typical bet of this type is Finales a Cheval 7/10. This covers one chip on 7 and 10, one chip on 17 and 20 and one chip on 27 and 30. If any of the six numbers are called the payout is 17 to 3.

There are two types of Finales a Cheval bets that wager 4 chips. One bet wagers one chip each on four pairs of split numbers. A typical bet of this type is Finales a Cheval 2/5. This covers one chip on 2 and 5, one chip on 12 and 15, one chip on 22 and 25 and one chip on 32 and 35. If any of the eight numbers are called the payout is 17 to 4. The other bet wagers one chip each on two single numbers and one chip each on two pairs of split numbers. A typical bet of this type is Finales a Cheval 7/8. This covers one chip on 27, one chip on 28, one chip on 7 and 8 and one chip on 17 and 18. If any of the two single numbers are called the payout is 35 to 4 and if any of the four split numbers are called the payout is 17 to 4.

The Finales a Cheval bet that wagers 5 chips places one chip each on two single numbers and one chip each three pairs of split numbers. A typical bet is Finales a Cheval 1/2 that places one chip each on 21 and on 22 and one chip each on 1 and 2, on 11 and 12 and on 31 and 32. The Finales a Cheval bet that wagers 6 chips places one chip each on four single numbers and one chip each two pairs of split numbers. The only bet is Finales a Cheval 3/4 that places one chip each on 3, on 4, on 33 and on 34 and one chip each on 13 and 14 and on 23 and 24.
