Roulette is a staple of any good casino nowadays, whether it’s a brick and mortar or an online one. And of course like with any game that grows in popularity there are a lot of variants for it. One of the most successful in recent years is Double Action Roulette. The main difference that this game has over standard Roulette is that there are two rings of numbers. They spin independently from each other and the ball lands in a spot between these two rings. This will give out two winning outcomes. The player can bet on the outcome of the outer ring, the inner ring, or a parlay bet on both.
It seems that the game is available in both a single-zero and a double-zero table. In order to place bets, instead of having a 3 by 12 grid of numbers, Double Action Roulette has a 6 by 6 field. Despite all of this, the bets and odds remain pretty much the same when you’re betting on a single outcome. Here are the specific bets that are available in Double Action Roulette:
