French roulette consists of a cylinder of 37 numbers and a playmat. Hosted by a table manager and three croupiers, with no limit on the number of players, this legendary casino game
How to play French roulette
1: “Ladies and Gentlemen, place your bets.”
The croupier spins the cylinder and announces “place your bets” while throwing the ball. Players can then place their chips on the mat or ask one of the dealers to do so. This is called ” making an announcement. ” Depending on the type of bet, the chip can be placed on a square or straddling two, three, or four squares.
2: “Nothing is right.”
As soon as the croupier announces that “nothing is going well,” you can neither bet nor move your chips.
3: “The game is over.”
This announcement is made when the ball makes contact with the squares of the wheel and begins to bounce from squares to squares before coming to rest on one of the 37 squares.
The croupier then announces the number is drawn and the three groups of ties to which he belongs. After collecting the losing bets, the dealer proceeds to pay the winning bets.
The carpet of French roulette
The “simple chances” are located on each side of the carpet; they are: red, black, even, odd, miss, pass. These are the most interesting bets in roulette in terms of odds.
Case of getting out of zero and being put in prison
In the event of leaving zero, the bets on simple chances (Black, Red, Even, Odd, Miss, or Pass) can either become bets “in prison” (not recommended) or be shared between the bank and the player.
When putting in prison, the wager is placed on the line for this purpose on the play mat. The next move decides the fate of this wager: if the simple chance that was played at the start wins, the player recovers his full amount.
Putting in prison gives an additional advantage to the casino; therefore, it is to be avoided and prefer him to split the bet. This particular rule decreases the casino’s advantage in French roulette to 1.35%.
The other types of roulette differ in the layout of the table and the distribution of numbers and possible bets. Also, the rule of zero (imprisonment) only exists in French roulette.
Slot Machine Myths You Might Have Heard
Standard slot machines do not get “hot” or “cold.” The odds of making a particular combination are the same on each turn. Such machines do not “have” to pay out if they have not given out a jackpot. Exception: so-called progressive slot machines.
The slot machines would have sequences of symbols that would return regularly following a logic.
No more, no chance of this happening with the millions of possibilities generated every second. And even if with a computer you could follow these millions of possibilities, imagine having to press to the nearest thousandth of a second …
Slots with high payout rates are placed in traffic zones.
There is no science of machine placement in a casino; machines with the highest payout rates are not necessarily placed in traffic zones. On the other hand, the most played are those where there is the most passage.
I have more chances of hitting the jackpot when the casino is full.
What is true is that there are more jackpots when the casino is full, the reason being that more people are playing slots. And it has nothing to do with any manipulation of slot machines by casinos.
The redistribution rates change according to the time of day.
The redistribution rates of slot machines are fixed at their purchase, and they cannot be changed by the time of day, day of the week, or remotely by a computer (exception made from this experience in the United States ). Casinos also have no control over what time the jackpot will hit.
What to add? A superstition like any other.
The random number generator has nothing to do with whether you are pressing the key or pulling a lever. Another sad news: you can’t influence the slot machine at all!
Someone has just sat down at the slot machine I just left and hit a big jackpot.
You say to yourself: “If I had stayed a little longer, it would have been mine.” Frankly, you would have had to press the button at the same microsecond as the other player, any change in timing would have given a different result. Have no regrets, then.
I played this slot machine in a row for 5 (or 8 or 20) days and didn’t hit the jackpot. It should happen now …
The probability of hitting the jackpot the first or the 500,000th time is the same. Remember that the payout percentages are based on millions of games, and for a player to hit 500,000 games at 500 spins per hour, they would have to play 1000 hours. And that still wouldn’t guarantee a jackpot or even reaching that payout rate.
I don’t play this slot machine because it just paid a jackpot.
Short term means nothing to a machine. You will have the same odds whether you play right before or right after a jackpot. Sad, but true!
Either way, there is nothing more frustrating than seeing that you’ve won on a line you haven’t bet on. So yes, bet on all lines, but you don’t have to bet to the maximum, except for progressive jackpots, which only drop if you play to the maximum.
There is a way to win.
False: Ignore all the “expert” nicknames who will advise you on various game tactics: the only tactic that works is your luck.
