Roulette Table Layout
« on: February 26, 2016, 07:11:12 PM »
Hi,

I've just for fun been experimenting with different roulette table layouts. I don't think you'll ever encounter a casino where these layouts will be present, but what if? What would our betting options and strategy be?

See attached...

Regards - James

Have you heard of mini-roulette?

James,

This is really interesting!

Yes, the square version is somewhat similar to mini-roulette.

Yes, I've heard about mini roulette, but I've actually never encountered an online casino that offered this game.

But yeah, manipulating with the table layout does give a new twist on things, even though you would have to bet on numbers.

I would actually very much like if the casinos would offer betting on 9 numbers, as shown in figure 1. That would make it a lot easier when betting on three streets :-)

In our roulette history article - which btw is quite interesting and revealing - you can learn about the roulette ancestors. You will be surprized to know that Biribisso had a square layout.


If you can, I would suggest that you write a little description of your layouts and payouts and copyright/patent them.
Casinos and other venues are constantly looking for new games, so you (or your descendants) might be able to sell these ideas!

Very interesting article, thank you Kav :-)

And I actually didn't know that Casinos were looking for new games... But why not? It's how they do business. So maybe the HG is not beating Roulette, it's about making a whole new game and sell it off :-)

La Boule

There was also a game called Boule or La Boule that usually uses a wooden wheel.
It has 9 numbers and 3 different colors: Red, black and yellow. When yellow comes, the house wins and the player loses. Unless he has bet on 5 which is yellow.

The house edge of this game is 11% instead of 2,7% or roulette.

Hello James. It is inspiring to place  the numbers in alternative layouts.
37 numbers, however, can hardly be placed equally in a Square.
Once I put them in a certain version of "SOLITAIRE".

It is much easier to place area 1-36 inside 6x6 fields (like you did).
There are interesting possibilities in such a Square. I have been looking at patterns on the horizontal level, the vertical level and last (but not least) the diagonal level.
There are four diagonals with two fields in each one.
Four diagonals with three fields,
   -           -         -     four    -
   -           -         -     five     -
and two   -         -     six      -   .

It might seem obvious that the smallest diagonals might be filled in first.
HOWEVER, Lady Luck often chooses another order.
