Mini Roulette has not yet become that much popular and spread as its older versions of European and French Roulettes. Nevertheless, it would be useful to get to know the rules of Mini Roulette game.
Though, the rules of Mini Roulette are not that much different from the rules of French Roulette, there are some significant peculiarities.
The Mini Roulette wheel has three times fewer numbers than European Roulette does. 13 numbers (0-12) against regular 37 (0-36).
The regular notion of a dozen, consisting of 12 numbers of the counting order, in Mini Roulette is replaced by the notion of a group, due to fewer numbers of the roulette wheel. There are three groups in Mini Roulette, the same as French Roulette has three dozens. The first group (1-6), the second group (4-9), the third group (7-12). The same situation is applied to columns. Each column in Mini Roulette has 4 numbers instead of regular 12.
Payout ratios also have smaller values in comparison to the values of the older versions of the game. It would be irrational to have the same payout ratios as of French and European Roulettes on fewer numbers of the wheel. That's why the winning bets on numbers in Mini Roulette are paid out in the ratio 1:11. The bets on even odds (odd-even, red-black), the same as the bets on groups (1-6, 4-9, 7-12) have payout ratio of 1:1.
Despite the fact that it is easy to calculate the mathematical expectation of the Mini Roulette game, each player should, first of all, evaluate this roulette version according to their own interests, skills and the principles of the game. Only your personal experience can help you to understand if Mini Roulette suits you or not.
According to rules there is an opinion that Mini Roulette best of all suits to the beginning players from the point of view of training and practicing. At the same time, players of the medium level of skills can find something for themselves, something unique and interesting.
