French Roulette

Back to Guide

Due to changed regulations in October 2020, online gambling sites cannot offer jackpot and table games such as B. Roulette and Blackjack on the German market.

Articles about different roulette variants usually focus on European and American Roulette. French Roulette should be more noticed. French Roulette is similar to its European cousin but brings a few rule changes that appeal to roulette players.

But what exactly is French Roulette, and what makes it unique? The following article explains everything you need to know. Read this article so that you can play Roulette at Wildz fully prepared.

French Roulette uses a different layout

The main difference between European and American Roulette concerns the number of chambers in the roulette wheel. French Roulette uses the same gaming equipment as the European variant. In other words, it is a zero, not a double zero.

The tableau on which you place your bets, however, looks different. You have the same betting options, but the layout changes. If you know other roulette variations, getting used to the new tableau should take a little time.

At Wildz, we are convinced that the spice lies in the variety. That’s why you can choose between many different Roulette games. In addition to European, American and French variants, live dealer experiences such as Roulette Azure, Gold Bar Roulette, Instant Roulette, and Double Ball Roulette are also available.

How is French Roulette different from other variants of Roulette?

French Roulette is one of the most popular online games of chance here at Wildz because the house edge is even lower than other roulette variants. A single rule change is responsible for this because everything else is consistent with European Roulette.

The French roulette wheel is the same as European Roulette. As already mentioned, the layout changes slightly. The main difference concerns two specific rules:

  • En Prison - If the ball lands on 0 while betting on easy odds, your bet remains on the table. So, you get a second chance to realize the mission.
  • La Partage - This rule applies to simple chances, assuming the ball lands on 0. If La Partage is active, the croupier splits your bet. You get half of your stake back; the other half goes to the house.

Are there special bets?

You already know most roulette bets from other roulette variants. However, French Roulette has a few unique bets up its sleeve:

  • Voisins du Zéro – The numbers 22 to 25 on the roulette wheel
  • Le Tiers du Cylindre – The numbers 27 and 33 on the roulette wheel
  • Jeu Zéro – The 0 plus six numbers to the left and right of it
  • Orphelins – The 8 numbers not covered by the last two bets
  • Finales – bets on numbers ending in a specific digit (such as 5, 15, 25, 35)


How many numbers are on a French Roulette wheel?

A French Roulette wheel features 37 numbers from 0-36, making up the different wheel compartments like European Roulette. The sequence is also the same, as is the typically used colours of red, black, and green for the 0 boxes.

Does French Roulette have different rules?

There is only one significant difference: the French Roulette La Partage rule, where you get half your bet back on even money outside bets if zero hits.

What is the house edge in French Roulette?

French Roulette's house edge varies depending on the types of bet you're placing. Non-even money bets are identical to the European game (2.7%), but on even-money wagers, it falls to just 1.35%.

Is there any strategy in French Roulette?

There aren't any strategies, but many players stick to even-money bets while playing French Roulette to maximize their chances of winning. That's it.
