Roulette 18 is a new table game that uses a 0 to 18 Roulette-Wheel and a unique Roulette-Layout that does not require a Roulette-sized table. Like traditional Roulette, Players can place: Straight-up, Split, Street, Corner, Line and Even-chance bets. This game is not available at live casinos or any other Canadian friendly casino as of now. Also this game can be played free also without using any money or real Canadian dollars at PlayRoulette18.com or at PlayRoulette18DICE.com or at FreePlayRollette.com
The rules of the game
Players place their bets on the Roulette-18 layout, just as they would in ordinary Roulette. A Roulette-die is rolled in a shaker and then exposed. If the roll is a double-zero (00) all bets remain in action and the die is rolled again until a non-00 winning number is determined. According to the bets and the winning number, Dealer then collects all losing bets and pays winning bets according to the Pay-table.
The popular bets in Roulette 18
For added excitement, casino operators may choose to include the Double-Hit betting section on their Roulette-18 layout. The Double-Hit straight-up is a proposition bet based on two consecutive roll of the die. Here the Player places a bet on a single number in the Double-Hit section of the layout. If the Player does not hit his number, he loses his Double-Hit bet.
If the Player hits his number, he’s paid 12-to-1 and the bet remains in play for a second round. Ifthe Player does not hit his number in the second round he loses his Double-Hit bet, but he keeps his first-win 12:1 payout, for a net win of 11 units. If the player hits his number on the second round, he’s paid 120-to-1 and his original bet is returned, for a total net-win of 132 units.
The other popular bet is Roulette Link Bets
Roulette Link-Bets offers Split and Corner betting between numbers in the first and third columns that were previously not possible because they are not adjacent. Link-Bets are made possible by the addition of a fourth column which duplicates the first column.
In other words while columns with 1, 2 and 3 existed, allowing for a split bet between 1 and 2 or 2 and 3, there is now a fourth column with the number 1 again thus allowing for a split bet between the two adjacent numbers of 3 and 1 like Link-Splits: (7 and 9), (16 and 18). Link-Corners: (7, 9, 10 and 12) (13, 15, 16 and 18). Roulette Link-Bets.

The game uses an icosahedron, which for the non-math nerds is one of the five platonic solids, in this case the one with 20 triangles. The die is numbered 0 to 18, plus a 00.

- Straight up: Bet on an individual number. Pays 17 to 1.
- Split: Bet on two adjacent numbers of the betting payout. Pays 8 to 1.
- Street: Bet on a row of three numbers of the betting payout. Pays 5 to 1.

All even money bets have a rule that if the die lands on zero then the player loses half only. This cuts the house edge in half from 5.26% to 2.63%. Thus, much like in European roulette, it is advised to stick to the even money bets only.
