You may not know it, but there is a two-ball version of roulette. Yes, two-ball roulette is an exciting proposition that offers twice the fun.
This game offers the possibility of making more complex and exciting bets, and if you have never played before, we will teach you everything you need to know in this article.
And if you are interested in increasing your chances of winning, we will also tell you the most used double ball roulette strategies.
But first, let’s start with the basics; let’s see what this version of roulette is all about and its rules.
What is double ball roulette and how to play it?
This new version of roulette is available in some online casinos and allows players to enjoy it live.
As its name indicates, it is a roulette wheel like any other, but with the particularity that the roulette wheel spins with two balls instead of just one. That means the game is the same, but as two balls rotate in the roulette wheel, the bets change, as there is no single outcome.
Another highlight of the double ball roulette wheel is that the European version contains only one zero. Since there is enough space, both balls can land in the same pocket.
· Basic rules
- This roulette wheel uses the same layout as European roulette.
- To win the “outside” bets, both balls must be successful. For example, if you bet on red, both balls must land in a red pocket.
- Both balls don’t need to be successful when placing “inside” bets. If both balls hit the chance, the player wins double. The player wins the “Double Ball Jackpot” when both balls land in the same pocket.
- Standard bets pay half (approximately) of what regular roulette pays. Since there are two balls in play, the player has twice as many chances.
· Outside bets
They are usually highlighted in gold. They are the best paying, but you need both balls to win.
Outside bets are:
- Red / Black
- Odd / Even
- 1-18 / 19-36Column
- 1st, 2nd, and 3rd dozen
· Inside bets
These are different from the traditional version of roulette. The usual way to bet on inside bets is to bet on a specific number or Street or Split, and the ball must land in the right place to win, which means only one chance.
In double ball roulette, on the other hand, the player has a double chance. Why is that? Because when it comes to “Inside bets”, only one of the two balls needs to land in the selected spot.
So the player can bet, for example, on two different numbers, and if only one ball lands on either number, the player wins. If each ball lands on those two numbers, the player wins the bet twice.
There is a chance to win the Jackpot, meaning both balls must land in the same pocket of the selected number. However, the chances of this happening are very slim.
Inside bets are:
- Straight up
Strategy and tips
Here are some of the most used double ball roulette strategies and tips before engaging in the game.
When it comes to playing double ball roulette, it is a matter of defining if you will choose to play in a “safer” way by betting on the inside bets that are lower risk but pay less; or if you prefer to take more significant risks by betting on the outside bets that pay more but offer lower odds.
It is always advisable to stick to inside bets to win.
Most players opt for this version of two-ball betting because they love having a double chance on inside bets.
Another of the most used bets is the Line since it is one of the safest bets. It offers a 2 to 1 payout, doubled if both balls are successful (the great attraction of this version of roulette).
There is not much difference between one type of roulette and the other; however, the minor modifications make this game much more enjoyable.
The possibility of having a double chance attracts many players, and the adrenaline of combining bets across both balls takes the game to another level.
