Double Ball Roulette

Double Ball Roulette is an astounding variation of the traditional game of roulette, with the major difference between to two being the inclusion of a second ball. This variation features a Layover System, which can be used with any regular single-ball 32-inch roulette wheel. A curious fact worth noting is that each Layover System has two player remote controls, which do not require batteries.

Regardless of how odd it may seem, the two balls are kept from colliding into one another. It is so, because with the help of compressed air the balls are shot out of a tube in an almost simultaneous manner. What is more, as the balls spin at one and the same speed, the second ball always lags behind the first one.

Some roulette players may ask about the chance of the two balls dropping into one and the same pocket. In order to indulge their curiosity, we should say that after thousands of tests experts have estimated there was about 1/38 probability that the two balls will land in one and the same pocket.

Similar to American roulette, in Double Ball Roulette the wheel consists of 38 divisions (numbers 1 to 36, a single zero and a double zero), while the betting layout on the table is almost the same. When placing inside bets, a player has two chances of success, but, however, the payouts are lower than those in traditional roulette. On the other hand, when placing outside bets, a player wins if both balls drop into the selected numbers. Payouts for outside bets, however, are higher than those in traditional roulette.
