The Specialities of Double Action Roulette

There are many European Roulette variants around, but one that should be of particular interest to you is the Double Action Roulette. This Roulette was developed by TCSJOHNHUXLEY, a reputable Roulette board and wheel manufacturer. As a matter of fact, the Roulette wheel designs of TCSJOHNHUXLEY such as the MKVII, Gemini and Saturn are world renowned and quite popular in the United Kingdom.

The Specialities of Double Action Roulette

In playing Double Action Roulette, you should know that rather than the ball landing on a single number, it lands on two numbers. With the MKVII Roulette board and wheel design, you have an outer-ring comprising of a set of numbers and an inner-ring with yet another set of similar numbers. These two rings tend to spin directly opposite to each other.

While Double Action Roulette comes in a single or double zero variant, the single zero games are more popular in the UK. Like typical European Roulette games, you have 37 numbers and pockets on both rings. The numbers are labelled 1 to 36 with a single zero digit available on each ring. While the 1 to 36 numbers alternate between red and black coloured pockets for both rings, the zero on each of the rings are on green coloured pockets.

A Roulette Board with Two Similar Betting Areas

A typical Roulette board comprises of just one betting area. However, with Double Action Roulette, you have the unique distinction of two similar betting areas. Each betting area caters for bets wagered on each ring. The first betting area is dedicated to bets placed on numbers on the outer ring.

While on the other hand, the second betting area caters to bets placed on the numbers of the inner-ring. The location of the first betting area is closer to the Roulette wheel while the location for the second betting area is slightly away from the Roulette wheel.

With this Roulette variant, you have a total of six rows comprising of six different numbers. However, on a traditional Roulette board, you have a total of 12 rows with each of the rows having 3 different numbers. But similar to a classic Roulette game, you have a racetrack betting area. In this betting area, you can place bets such as Voisins du Zero and Orphelins.

Playing Double Action Roulette on the Roulette board

There are many similarities when comparing the playability of Double Action Roulette with typical classic Roulette games. However, while the Inside bets of Double Action Roulette maintain odds similar to other classic Roulette games, the Outside bets like Odd/Even, High/Low and Red/Black are not even-money bets. You can only receive a payout on Outside bets when you succeed in landing the winning numbers on both the outer and inner rings of the Roulette wheel.

You can also place your wager while the ball spins on the Roulette wheel. As soon as the designated croupier says, “No more bets”, the spinning ball gradually comes to a halt. In order to ensure that players are made aware of the winning set of numbers, the numbers are illuminated on both the inner and outer betting areas.

As soon as your preferred chip size is selected, you can then decide on which bet to make on the Roulette board by just clicking on the illuminated betting box to have your selected chips placed in the box. You then have to click the “Spin” icon to get the Roulette wheel spinning.

Finally, the ball starts spinning on the wheel and then comes to a halt on a couple of numbers. Where you record a win, your gaming account is instantly credited with the corresponding payout for the bet placed. However, a losing spin will lead to you losing your wagered amount.
