Live Slingshot Roulette Rules

Live Slingshot Roulette is a standard game of European Roulette but instead of the croupier releasing the ball into the wheel, it is done automatically. The wheel is a standard European Roulette wheel with 37 numbered segments, and player simply bet on which segment the ball will come to rest on.

It is possible to bet on far more than individual numbers. The game has been designed in such a way so as it is possible to bet on different groupings of numbers. The numbers are arranged on the wheel and the betting area so that it is possible to bet on groups as defined by the layout as well as groups of numbers that share characteristics, such as all the odd or even numbers.

Thanks to this, there are a number of standard bets, as follow:

  • Straight Up: A bet on an individual number.
  • Split Bet: A bet on two adjacent numbers on the betting area.
  • Street Bet: A bet on three numbers in a vertical line (a street) on the betting area.
  • Corner/Four Bet: A bet on four numbers that form a square on the betting area.
  • Line Bet: A bet on six numbers, two streets that are adjacent in the betting area.
  • Column Bet: A bet on the twelve numbers that make up a horizontal line in the betting area.
  • Dozen Bet: A bet on the first, second or third group of 12 numbers (1-12, 13-24 and 25-36).
  • Red/Black Bet: A bet on either the red or the black numbers.
  • Even/Odd Bet: A bet on all the even or all the odd numbers.
  • Low/High Bet: A bet on whether the ball will land on a low or high number (1 – 18 or 19 – 36).

These bets can be used in combination and there are some common betting patterns. These are known as announce bets and there is a special second betting area, called the Racetrack, where they can be quickly placed.

  • Voisins du Zero: A bet on the numbers neighbouring 0 on the wheel, it includes every number between 22 and 25. The Voisins du Zero bet costs nine chips that are divided into: two chips as a triplet bet on 0/2/3, one chip as a split bet on 4/7, one chip as a split bet on 12/15, one chip as a split bet on 18/21, one chip as a split bet on 19/22, two chips as a corner bet on 25/26/28/29, one chip as a split bet on 32/35.
  • Tier: A bet on the area of the wheel opposite 0, it covers about a third of the wheel, the numbers between 33 and 27. The bet costs six chips and covers 12 numbers including: a split bet on 5/8, a split bet on 10/11, a split bet on 13/16, a split bet on 23/24, a split bet on 27/30, a split bet on 33/36.
  • Orphelins: A bet on the numbers 17, 34, 6, 1, 20, 14, 31 and 9. The bet costs five chips that are divided on the following numbers: one chip as a straight bet on 1, one chip as a split bet on 6/9, one chip as a split bet on 14/17, one chip as a split bet on 17/20, one chip as a split bet on 31/34.

There are also shortcuts to place various other common betting patterns:

  • Final Bet: This is a bet on all the numbers that share the same last number. For example, a final bet on the number 4 would place chips on 4, 14, 24 and 34.
  • Complete Bet: This covers all the betting positions associated with a certain number. The bet consists of a Straight Bet, Split Bet, Corner Bet, Street Bet and Line Bet.
  • Half-Complete Bet: This covers the same betting positions as the Complete bet, but without the Street and Line Bets.
  • Neighbours: This is a bet on a number and the two numbers either side of it on the roulette wheel. The bet requires five chips, and they are all placed as straight bets. For instance, a neighbours bet on 9 would place a chip on 14, 31, 9, 22 and 18.

Players are given 15 seconds in which to place their chips on the betting area. When the betting time is up, the ball is released into the wheel and after it has come to a stop, players are paid for any winning bets.
