Alphabetic Roulette is a roulette variant I saw at the Fitzgerald's in Las Vegas on August 7, 2011. It is a simple roulette variant involving both colors and letters. There are 25 spaces, one for each letter from A to X, and one for both Y and Z. There are also six colors, each consisting of four letters. The YZ is treated much the way the 0 is in single-zero roulette and has no color.
There are ten types of bets, as follows:
The following table shows the probability and expected return of each bet. The right column shows that every bet has a 4.00% house edge.
Every bet has the same house edge so it makes no difference what you bet on.
If you enjoy roulette and conventional roulette is also available, here is how Alphabetic Roulette compares to some other horizontal-wheel games.

Reason #4 why the Wizard likes Bovada:
Bovada offers the triple crown of gambling: casino, poker, and sports. Many other casinos have tacked on poker as an afterthought, and many poker rooms have tacked on a casino as an afterthought, and the lack of attention shows, sometimes painfully. And very few of these sites let you make sports wagers.
But Bovada doesn’t just offer all three, they do each one well, and everything’s integrated. It’s easy to play all three off one deposit, off just one account.
Another nice thing about Bovada is that you don’t need a separate account to play casino games with fake money. In fact you do not even need an account for that at all, you can just click over there and play. Finally, Bovada usernames are only six or seven characters long making them possible to remember. By contrast some competitors’ usernames are extremely long and cumbersome.
