Players have a natural tendancy to look at the Roulette history board and make comments
about any types of patterns that may be present. This side bet allows players to bet that such
an event is about to occur.
I.E. If the next three results include a pair, three of a kind or straight, the bet wins.
Also, 0 and
000) are wild. Lastly, if
the three spins are all 0 or
000), a porgressive jackpot is paid.
Bets are accepted at the same time as regular betting, and are placed once for the
next three spins. If desired, casinos can give players the option of placing the bet again
after any spin, before the original spins are complete. See the Sample Spins page for more info about why
a bettor would want to have multiple bets active at the same time.
Bets are placed in the designated PFR position along the back wall of the layout, using Roulette
chips. When the dealer announces, "No more bets," he will place a clear cover over the
bets. After the ball falls into a pocket and the regular bets are settled, the dealer will
put a marker on top of the cover, showing the current spin result. He then slides this cover and
the chips under it into the #1 position, while also sliding the covers, chips and markers forward
from #1 to #2 and #2 to #3.
The dealer will then examine the three spin markers to see if they make a winning
combination. If so, he uncovers the chips on the #3 position, and pays them.
As a courtesy, he then moves the chips bet to the PFR betting position. Players have the option
to take the bet down if they wish. If the three spin combination is not a winner, he uncovers
the chips and mucks them along with other losing bets. Note that the payouts shown on the
Math & Payout
page are based upon the dealer keeping the chip even after a win. Subtract 1 to get the amount
paid on a win when the dealer returns the chip to the PFR betting position.
Players must meet the table minimum in order to place each new Poker For Roulette™ bet.
There is no need to make any additional bets to keep a previously placed unresolved bet active.
Bets may not be placed or removed after the dealer says "No more bets."
In the illustration shown, players have the option of making the jackpot bet before every spin,
if they wish. No need to wait for a bet to be resolved before placing another bet. See the
Sample Spins page for
more info about multiple bets on overlapping spins.
In the interest of keeping things simple, casinos may elect to lock out new bets while
prior bets remain unresolved, thereby having only one betting position.
Players will need to provide Identification, and a Player's Club card, before receiving
large winning payouts.
