Today there are several varieties of roulettes. These are European, French, American, roulette without zero and roulette with a track known to all. Many have heard about them, in addition, it is worth mentioning card roulette and roulette. But there is another variety that not everyone knows about.
Such a roulette is called “Wheel of Fortune.” This is the same roulette, only slightly modified. The game table is divided into seven different sectors for betting. The first sector is number one, the second is 2, the third is 5, the fourth is 10, the fifth is 20, the sixth is the Flag, and the seventh is the Joker.
A wheel with highlighted numerical sectors, which contain symbols of the winnings, marking of the corresponding boxes, is located next to this game table of the Wheel of Fortune, closer to the dealer. The wheel itself has several protrusions along the contour, so that during rotation these protrusions touch the latches located on the table, due to which braking occurs. The latch has a second purpose – an indication of the winning sector when the wheel of Fortune stops.
Before starting the game on the Wheel of Fortune roulette, players place bets on the boxes, then the croupier announces that they have stopped accepting bets and spins the wheel. By the way, bets are made by special cash tokens, which can be purchased at the casino cash desk, or purchased at the online casino cash desk. After the wheel stops, the croupier announces the drawn number. Winning, when playing the Wheel of Fortune, are those sectors whose face values coincide with the dropped out number.
Payment is made with a coefficient of ten to one. All other sectors are considered losing. Bets made on them go to the casino account.
Today, the Wheel of Fortune as a type of roulette is widespread in many gambling houses in Europe and is almost as popular as roulette without zero. Our Wheel of Fortune is less common. Online casinos also very often include such roulette in the list of available games. According to statistics, winning this roulette is more difficult than European or American.
The simplicity of the rules of the game in the Wheel of Fortune adds to its popularity and attracts players who are primarily trying to enjoy playing in a casino.
Roulette without zero – game features
Many players know that in roulette it is the “zero” that gives the very advantage of the casino when playing on equal chances, and all other bets except the bet on the zero itself. However, there is roulette without zero. This type of roulette appeared a long time ago. The main difference from all other types of roulette is that this roulette, as the name implies, does not have a zero cell on the wheel. Accordingly, there is no zero field on the playing field.
The advantage of such roulette is that the chances of winning sharply increase with bets on black or red, on even and odd numbers, and other bets with equal chances of winning and losing. This happens for obvious reasons: there is no zero, which means that the ball will fall into either red or black.
However, do not rejoice. As a rule, when playing this type of roulette, before its start you will have to pay a small commission. The commission on roulette without zero is this little deception of the casino to attract players, this is the compensation that will prevent the casino from losing. This rule is in almost every casino. However, roulette itself is rarely found in real casinos. More often it can be seen in online casinos.
Zero-free roulette is great for playing roulette on systems. Especially progressive, which include betting on equal chances. Different online and real casinos set their own fees, which you will have to pay to play. The size of the commission, as a rule, depends on the limits of bets on the table, or rather on the range of allowable bets, and, of course, on the casino itself.
