Lucky Symbols Roulette
IntroductionLucky Symbols Roulette is a series of roulette side bets I saw at the Casino of the Empire in London in February 2014. It also can be found at the Montecasino in South Africa. There are six symbols to choose from paying various odds. Somehow, the game picks one of them as the winner and displays the winning outcome on an electronic display board.
RulesLucky Symbols Roulette is based on standard double-zero roulette, but with six side bets as follows.
AnalysisGame literature shows the probability of each symbol winning and house advantage. The following table shows that probability as well as the expected return.
Lucky Symbols Analysis
StrategyIf you must play the Lucky Symbols, bet the Prosperity symbol only, with the lowest house edge of 10.16%. The Prosperity bet is represented by a Chinese character and is the only Lucky Symbols bet that pays 1 to 1. Of course, you would do much better to just stick to roulette with a house edge of 5.26%.
