TECHNICAL FIELD AND BACKGROUND

The present invention relates to gaming. More specifically, the present invention is an enhanced roulette game.

The present invention may be called roulette rouge where there is a player's guide. The present invention is an addition to the already interesting game of american roulette. Roulette rouge may mean red wheel. The reason it may be called roulette rouge is because in addition to the number or numbers you are betting, you may purchase specific chips to bet on certain red numbers. Those numbers are the red odd numbers:1,3,5,7,9,19,21,23,25,27. You may only bet straight up. What makes it worth the gamble is that it pays 37:1 instead of 35:1, well worth the gamble. The person that would be inclined to play Roulette Rouge, are the people that would play a field bet, or corner 6 or 8 in craps or even 21 plus 3 in Black-Jack, and just as exhilarating as each.

The present invention may have a manager's guide. In the present invention, the house advantage is increased from 7.89% on the top line and 5.26% on all other inside bets to 9.09% on the “Rouge” bets, 10 available bets, minus 1 for the possible winner plus 2 (0−00)=11, thus 100/11=9.09%. The rouge bets are the red odd numbers:1,3,5,7,9,19,21,23,25,27. In 100,000 spins, the house wins at 97.38% of the time. The “rouge” numbers have never occurred more than 3 consecutive times, avg. of 2.9 times. In 100,000 spins, the rouge numbers occurred 2620.6 times avg. Assuming each “Rouge chip” is valued at $5.00, $500,000.00 is bet by the customer. The house pay true american roulette odds 37:1 instead of 35:1, and the customer is only allowed to bet straight up. The house pays $26,206.00, and grosses $473,794.00 assuming all 10 “rouge” numbers are bet.

In Roulette Rouge, the house advantage is increased from 5.26% on the inside bets to 9.09% on the “Rouge” bets, 10 available bets, minus 1 for the possible winner plus 2 (0−00)=11, thus 100/11=9.09% The rouge bets are the red odd numbers:1,3,5,7,9,19,21,23,25,27. In 100,000 spins, the house win at 97.38% of times. The “rouge” numbers has avg. of 2.9 wins in 100,000 spins, the rouge numbers occurred 2620.6 times avg., based on virtual spins, see print-out of virtual stats. Not different from real world stats. Each “Rouge chip” is valued at $5.00, $500,000.00 is bet by the customer. The house pay true American Roulette odds 37:1 instead of 35:1, and the customer is only allowed to bet straight up.

Very little cost to casino to start up. Very easy to learn both for the customer and dealer. Fair to players that they have opportunity to win true odds and to casino that the house advantage on the Rouge bets are 9.09% customers to Roulette. Use existing equipment.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

More than ever, people are looking for more ways to relax. According to the National Jewish Medical and research center 1997, relaxation is described as follows: “The absence of tension in muscle groups, and a minimum or absence of “inner chatter” in our minds—the thoughts an worries that constantly go on.” Certainly the present invention cannot alter the human musculature, but it can help to subdue that inner chatter. The present invention gives a player that felling of having an extra edge. There are two groups that gaming industry of roulette is focusing on the local population of the Mississippi Gulf coast, that Harvard school of public health and Diversitydata.org indicate that in Gulfport, Biloxi, and Pascagoula alone there are well over 323,000, approx. ⅔ of them are adult. According to Census Bureau, LSU, Harrison County Development Commission, and Community Development foundation of MS, Biloxi Exceeded 879 million in 2003 and 2.6 billion in 2004, and projected to climb. Biloxi have the third highest gambling revenue in U.S. and exceed 50 million visitors annually. So, tourist is an obvious target.

With the present invention the house advantage is increased from 7.89% on the top line and 5.26% on all other inside bets to 9.09% on the Rouge bets, 10 available bets, minus 1 for the possible winner plus 2 (0−00)=11, thus 100/11=9.09%. The Rouge bets are the red odd numbers:1,3,5,7,9,19,21,23,25,27. In 100,000 spins, the house will win at 97.38% of times. The Rouge numbers have never occurred more than 3 consecutive times, avg. 2.9 times. In 100,000 times spins, the rouge numbers occurred 2620.6 times avg. Assuming each Rouge chip is valued at $5.00 per unit, $500,000.00 is bet by the customer. The house pay true American roulette odds of 38:1 instead of 35:1, and the customer is only allowed to bet straight-up. The house pays $26,206.00 and grosses $473,794.00 assuming all 10 numbers are bet. The chance of the customer winning is cut from approx 44% to approx 42%, however, the opportunity to win is increased by 10(ten).

There are other carnival spin-off games on poker, craps and blackjack but none for roulette. In past, the gaming industry was practically saturated with carnival games. Many roulette players made this known only to themselves. Now the opportunity is here. The present invention will be very welcomed to the industry if given the opportunity. The present invention will focus on high quality gaming experience, both for the customer, dealer, and casino. We will provide training for personnel, advise and whatever is necessary for a good rapport with our clients. We are focused on good ethical practices toward the players, and good investment decision for the casino.

Roulette Rouge will if requested, offer a trial use. This will be a good opportunity to start and get exposure to Roulette Rouge. Roulette Rouge is intended to be priced fairly and with a business attitude. We use results from a virtual roulette without bias. Based on a customer making on avg. a $5.00 bet per spin/day=64,800 spins/quarter. $324,000 is bet and based on 42% win/loss ratio the customer take is $136,080 leaving $187,920 take for the casino. This is approx. $751,680 annually/table in the least. Purchase price and royalties are negotiable.
