Basics of Online French Roulette

February 16, 2018

French roulette is a variation of the classic online roulette which gained popularity following the French Revolution. This popular casino table game offers the lowest house edge of any roulette available and that includes European and American Roulette.

Played on a standard European type wheel, the game comes with two additional game play rules: The first being La Partage and the second the En Prison rule.

Both these game play rules kick in once a zero has spun in, and if you are playing French Roulette with the En Prison rule, then all bets placed on the even money paying bets stay on the table for the next spin.

If you’re playing the variant with the La Partage rule, then all even money paying wagers which have been placed when a zero spins in, have half their value returned to players.

Different types of French Roulette Bet Types

Several of the available betting propositions you will find on the betting layout of the French Roulette table are in French. To help you better understand more about what these positions are, here’s a quick guide to all:
