Recently, NextGen Gaming have released an exciting variation to the popular table game of roulette. Double Zero Roulette offers two zeros on the traditional American Roulette wheel along with a big choice of betting options, a greater house edge with lower stakes offered – which makes this a popular version of roulette to play.
NextGen was founded way back in 1999 in Australia and are one of the oldest software providers around. They currently have headquarters in London with offices placed in Sydney and Stockholm. NextGen have a portfolio of games ranging from video slots to table games, plus they offer games via desktop, mobile and tablet devices – so they know what it takes to create games that players love to play.
There are 38 pockets to the Double Zero Roulette wheel, there are numbers 1 through to 36 with a single 0 and a 00 (double zero). The zeros are placed in green as you’d expect from any roulette game, but they are positioned opposite each other on the wheel.
Another difference is the way the numbers are placed on the wheel – compared to European Roulette wheels, running clockwise the numbers are; 0, 28, 9, 26, 30, 11, 7, 20, 32, 17, 5, 22, 34, 15, 3, 24, 36, 13, 1, 00, 27, 10, 25, 29, 12, 8, 19, 31, 18, 6, 21, 33, 16, 4, 23, 35, 14, 2. There is an additional betting option on the table too – the spot for the double zero (can be found next to the single zero).
Like any game of roulette, it’s a game of chance and you have to guess correctly where you think the ball will come to rest. Correct bets will be met with a return as stated within the rules of the game. Study the wheel and the place your bets accordingly before the game commences.
Double Zero Roulette offers terrible odds compared to those of the standard European Roulette game with one zero. The original game offers a house edge of 2.70% whilst the Double Zero Roulette version offers a house edge of 5.26%.
The double zero and single zero are the pockets that give the house edge. If you were to bet on the double zero, you can expect a return of 35 to 1.
Other bets offered include the usual bets such as inside bets of; straight, split, street, corner and top line. Outside bets offered include; red or black, odd or even, high or low, dozen bets and column bets.
Due to the odds that the game offers, it is known as the worst possible variety of roulette you can choose to play – but it doesn’t stop t being enjoyable or producing some big wins.
You can play Double Zero Roulette on a desktop, mobile or tablet device with no downloading required whatsoever.
As far as we are aware, Double Zero Roulette is not available for residents of the US.
