Mini Roulette

Introduction

Mini Roulette is a simple roulette game based on a 13-number wheel. It can be found at Internet casinos using Playtech software under the "Arcade Games" menu.

Rules



  1. The game is played on a 13-number wheel, with numbers 0 to 12.
  2. The following bets are available:

    • Even money bets: Red, Black, Odd, Even, 1 to 6, 4 to 9, 7 to 12.
    • 2 to 1 bets: Columns, squares (four numbers), 0-1-2-3.
    • 3 to 1 bets: Rows, 0-1-2, 0-2-3.
    • 5 to 1 bets: Splits (two numbers).
    • 11 to 1 bets: Any single number.


  3. Contrary to what the game help file says, any bet that does not cover the number zero will lose only half if the ball lands in zero.


Analysis



Any bet that does not cover zero will have a house edge of 3.85%. Any bet that does cover zero will have a house edge of 7.69%.

Strategy



Never bet on anything that covers the number zero. This includes the number zero, 0-2, 0-1-2, 0-2-3, and 0-1-2-3.
