Mini Roulette is a relatively new variation of an old-style classic game. By all means it reminds European roulette, however it is different in many aspects. Firstly, the game wheel features only 13 slots - a 0 slot and numbers from 1 to 12. However, if you think this means the payouts will be smaller, you will be wrong. This small wheel provides sometimes huge payouts firstly because there is no limit on the bets.
Secondly, the bets differ in a bit. As in classic roulette you can bet on either of the numbers 0-12, rows of numbers (1st - 3, 6, 9, 12; 2nd - 2, 5, 8, 11; 3rd - 1, 4, 7, 10), number ranges from 1 to 6, 4 to 9, 7 to 12; either even or odd numbers and red or black.
Thirdly, the payouts are different from classic roulette. Even/Odd and Red/Black bets provide a 1:1 payout, as well as bets on number ranges. Bets on rows of numbers provide a 2 to 1 payout and Straight bets (bet on a single number) pays 11 to 1. Split and Three number bets pay 5 to 1, and the corner and column bet pay 2 to 1.
This game will without any doubts attract lots of Roulette players. The main reason for it being higher odds of winning with fewer numbers on the wheel. Who knows, maybe someday this will be also considered as a classic roulette game?
