4.         Types of bet

Inside Bets

You can bet on any number, including 0, by placing chips directly on a number.

 

You can bet on two numbers using the same wager by placing a chip on the line that separates the two numbers.

 

You can bet on combinations such as 0+1, 0+2 and 0+3, by placing a chip on the line that separates the 0 from the other numbers.

 

You can bet on three numbers using the same wager by placing chips on the exterior top borderline of the Roulette table - above the 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33 and 36 roulette table numbers.

 

A bet on the intersecting point between 0, 1 and 2, or 0, 2 and 3.

 

You can place a bet on four numbers at a time, by placing chips on the corners where the four numbers meet. E.G.: the central point that the roulette numbers 4, 5, 7, and 8 meet.

 

You can bet on 0+1+2+3 by placing chips on the exterior point where numbers 0 and 3 meet.

 

You can place a Six Line bet (meaning six different numbers in two adjacent rows of three numbers each - called streets), by placing chips on the exterior top border line where the line dividing the two streets is cut.

 

Outside Bets

At the bottom of each of the three number columns, there is a box tagged “2:1”. You can bet on any of the three columns by placing chips on the “2:1” tagged boxes. You win if the extracted roulette number is on the column you had placed a bet. The wins are paid according to a 2:1 ratio; 0 is a losing number.

 

You can bet on a group of twelve numbers by placing chips on one of the three boxes marked “1st 12”, “2nd 12”, or “3rd 12”. If one of your 12 numbers is the number where the Roulette ball has stopped, you are paid according to a ratio of 2:1; 0 is a losing number.

 

A bet in the box marked with a red diamond. The 0 is not included.

 

A bet in the box marked with a black diamond. The 0 is not included.

 

A bet in the box marked with "EVEN". The 0 is not included.

5.         Layout

The European Roulette wheel is marked with numbers ranging from 1 to 36 and of alternating colour – red and black – and a green ‘0’.

Note: The table limits displayed on the roulette table (MIN: 0.1 and MAX: 25) are related to the Straight Up bet.

From left to right, the layout is as follows:

·     Left: the Game options, roulette wheel and table limits, the chip stacks, the History panel  and the AUTOPLAY and GROUP BET buttons on  the lower left

·     Middle: the Roulette Table, the game buttons (before the game starts, only the SPIN button is displayed) and the info bar with the current balance, current bet and winnings

·     Right: the group bets menu – the special bet menu is displayed when you click the GROUP BET button.

The History panel shows the last 10 numbers where the roulette ball has stopped. The order is from left to right meaning newest to oldest.

The GROUP BET button allows access to popular number bets such as Neighbours, Third, Orphans and Finals.

6.         Highlighting

Placing the mouse cursor over a number on the roulette table highlights that certain number; keeping the mouse cursor over a highlighted area shows the maximum amount that can be bet on it as well as the placed bet (if any) and the possible payout.

Different numbers and/or different number combinations can be highlighted on different parts of the table.

Example: If you place the mouse cursor over a number, that number is highlighted and if you place the mouse cursor on the line between two numbers, both numbers are highlighted (‘split bet’).

Note: on the Group bets panel, if you place the mouse cursor over a particular bet type, the bet type and the relevant numbers will be highlighted.

The number where the ball stops is marked and highlighted. In addition, the outside bets sections to which that number belongs are also highlighted.

7.         Game Rules and Settings

7.1.     Game settings

The default chip denomination selected is 0.5.

Placing conflicting bets is not possible. The conflicting bets are:

·     betting on both Red and Black for a single spin

·     betting on both Even and Odd for a single spin

7.2.     How to play

Step 1

Click the desired chip stack in the lower left corner of the Roulette table. Once you select a chip value, it remains selected until you decide to change it by clicking a different chip stack. This means you can play on the same bet value without returning to the chip stacks.

Note: You cannot place more than the allowed amount of chips on any of the numbers or sections.

Step 2

After you choose a chip value, place the mouse cursor over the Roulette table and click the area(s) where you want to place a bet – each click places one chip on the highlighted area.

To remove a bet click the ‘CANCEL BET’ button, then click the bet you want to remove.

Click the ‘CANCEL ALL’ button to remove all bets from the table.

Note: Bets cannot be removed if the ball is in motion.

Step 3

Click the ‘SPIN’ button to spin the roulette wheel after the bets are placed. Once the ball is in motion, you cannot place any more bets until it stops.

Step 4

Any amount you win is displayed on the info bar and is added to the balance. The Roulette wheel part with the number on which the ball stopped is displayed on the left of the History panel.

After the ball stopped, you can:

·     Click the ‘LAST BET’ button to place the previous bet and then click the ‘SPIN’ button to start a new spin.

·     Click the ‘NEW GAME’ button to start a new game, and then go to Step 1.

·     Click the ‘REBET & SPIN’ button to add the previous bet on the table and automatically start the spin with both the current and previous bets; the ‘REBET & SPIN’ button is available once you place a bet on the table and play one time.

Note: If you try placing a chip on a number or section after the maximum bet amount is reached or if you do not have enough money, you will notice that the chip flashes for a few moments and no additional chips are placed.

8.         Autoplay

In the bottom left corner of the screen, click the AUTOPLAY button. This opens the autoplay menu window where you can set up the following:

1.      Select the number of spins for the autoplay feature – use the left and right buttons to scroll through the values list.

2.      Advanced options – click the ADVANCED OPTIONS button to open the advanced configuration menu:

·     STOP WHEN ALL THE SPINS HAVE BEEN PLAYED – the autoplay stops when all spins are completed;

·     STOP WHEN THE WIN IS GREATER OR EQUAL TO -  the autoplay stops when the win is greater or equal to the value you enter;

·     STOP AT THE FIRST WIN – the autoplay stops at first win;

·     STOP WHEN THE BALANCE INCREASES BY – the autoplay stops when the balance increases by the value you enter;

·     STOP WHEN THE BALANCE DECREASES BY – the autoplay stops when the balance decreases by the value you enter.

Note: The autoplay feature is available only after you place a bet.

When using the Advanced options, the Autoplay will stop at the first condition met, provided it is selected; the other conditions are ignored.

Click the STOP button to stop the autoplay feature at any time.
