For people who really know the ins and outs of an Online Casino, roulette is a classic among classics. And with our latest online version of the traditional variant French Roulette, you have even more gameplay choices and opportunities for casino fun! Roulette, which is one of the most successful casino games of all time, was originally founded in Italy with the name ‘girello’ or 'girella', but it was in France that it rose to prominence to become the standard-bearer that it is today. In this version, which follows in the footsteps of this Alpine tradition, you can play using combinations of wagers as well as the normal bets on the regular numbers.
Like other Online Roulette games, French Roulette lets you place all of the traditional wagers: ‘Straight Up’ single numbers (which pay out 35 times your stake), two adjacent numbers, called splits (they pay 17 times), a corner, which is four numbers arranged in a square (five times), lines or groups of a dozen numbers (twice your stake), and some more simple options - red or black, odd or even, or 1-18 or 19-36 (the winnings for all of these are equal to your stake). As well as these, there is a whole host of wagers for the more experienced players, such as all the numbers with the same last digit, or the Voisins de zéro, AKA the numbers next to zero. The quick way to access these expert bets is through one of the two available menus, called “Neighbour Bets” or “Announce Bets”. Finally, in accordance with the long-standing traditions of French Roulette, there is a rule called ‘La Partage’ – where only half of the wager on an even-money bet is lost if the ball comes to rest on the zero. And for playing here at Casino.com UK, you get an extra special welcome with our new starter bonus, which could be worth 100% up to £400 (plus 200 free spins)!

In fact, it’s one of the most accessible Online Casino Games around, and is a great way to get started. So place your bets, and as the French say, Les jeux sont faits, rien ne va plus!
