Are you just starting out with roulette? It can be a confusing table game to start out with since there are so many betting options and numbers on the table. If you’re still trying to figure out what strategy works the best for you, it might be best to start off simple with Mini Roulette. Compared to standard roulette games, Mini Roulette only has 13 numbers instead of 37. It’s a much simpler version of the game.
As the game simplifies, so does the betting option. Mini Roulette is perfect for some of the more conservative betters because the minimum and maximum table limits are set fairly low. The least that you can bet inside and outside the table is $1, and the most that you can bet is capped at $25. Make your bet with 7 casino chips. Denominations include $0.01, $0.10, $0.50, $1, $5, $10 or $25.
There are 13 numbers in Mini Roulette. You get numbers 0 to 12 instead of 0 to 36. 0 gives the house an edge because outside bets will not pay out and are not covered if the ball lands on it. You can still bet on 0 on the inner table. On the inner table, you can place bets directly on one number, split the bet between two numbers by placing the bet on the side edges, split the bet between 3 numbers by putting the bet on the edge of a row and split the bet between 4 numbers by placing the bet on a corner. When betting directly on a number, you can bet on any numbers between 0 to 12.
The outer table will give you plenty more betting options. You can bet on whether the color of the number will be red or black, whether it will be even or odd, whether it will be from 1 to 6, 4 to 9 or 7 to 12, or on each row, which gives you 4 numbers each.
You can place your bets however you like. You can place varying bets on numerous numbers and you can even bet on both the inner and the outer table. Once you’re happy with the bets you’ve made, spin the wheel!
Mini Roulette offers a simple paytable. For bets made on the inner table, you can expect a payout of:
The payout for the outer table bets include:
Depending on the casino, Mini Roulette may even offer a La Partage rule. This rule basically means that you will receive half of all losing bets if the ball lands on zero. This helps to reduce the house’s edge. The house edge when the La Partage rule is in effect is 3.85%. When the La Partage rule isn’t in effect, the house edge increases to 7.69%.
Mini Roulette is the perfect game for gamblers who are just starting out. It’s also a decent game to play if you’re busy with other tasks, as it is much easier to keep track of all of the numbers while playing.
