RANDOM NUMBER GENERATED ROULETTE

7.1

Introduction to single zero roulette

Single zero roulette is played by spinning a ball on a round wheel with thirty seven numbered slots. The object of the game is to predict where the ball will come to rest in the spinning wheel. There are 37 individually numbered sections in the wheel, labelled with the numbers 0-36. Bets can be placed on any one of these 37 numbers or on various groups of numbers displayed on the table. By predicting the right number, you earn a return on your bet. The size of the payoff depends on how the bet was placed.
Over a long period of time, the game is likely to average a return to the player of 97.98% of the total bets made.

Participation instructions

The Player’s chips are stacked by denomination at the bottom left of the game window. To place a bet, the Player must move the cursor to the pictures of the chips and left-click the chip value that they want to use. The Player must then move the cursor to the positions on the table layout that they want to place bets and left-click in each of those positions. The system will not let the Player place a chip unless it is a valid bet position. Chips will automatically appear underneath the cursor. The bet amount will also appear at the top of the window. Each left-click with the cursor in the same position will increase the bet by one chip of the same value, up to the maximum bet for that position.

If the Player wants to change to a different chip value, they must move the cursor back to the pictures of the chips at the lower left corner of the game window on the screen and left-click on the new chip value that they want to use. Then move the cursor back to the table layout and left-click as before to place bets.

To replace the same bets as made for the previous spin, left-click the same BETS button. To remove all bets from the table layout, left-click the CLEAR BETS button.
