All Bets on Yellow: Double Free Spins Bonus Roulette in Sweden

Guest post

 

Roulette is definitely one of the easiest casino games to play. Its rules are so simple that you don’t need to even memorize it all. You only have to bet, see the dealer spin the wheel, then let the ivory ball decide your wager’s fate. Roulette is also famed for its very fast pace and its near fifty-fifty chances of winning. Thus, many gamblers have flocked to it, admiring its streamlined design and enjoying the very exciting feel there is in every spin.

That said, one can conclude that roulette is a very successful casino game. It’s now so popular in casinos that almost nobody remembered how it started from a derivative of a perpetual motion machine created by the French inventor Blaise Pascal. Who can blame this majority of roulette players? After all, roulette has evolved far beyond its origins and has given way to countless variations.

Roulette Normally, people will always think of American and European roulette once roulette variations come to mind. American roulette is a version known for its two zero slots and for having a high house edge, while European roulette is a more internationally popular variant for having a single zero roulette wheel, and therefore, higher winning odds. However, these aren’t the only forms of roulette. There are countless others, some of which have been popularized by online roulette casinos.

One of these variations is the double bonus free spins roulette, which as we can agree, has a rather mouthful name. This version of the casino game is distinct for having a yellow “B” slot, which is considered a single bet but with a higher payout. This is 50% larger than the usual pocket, giving the ball better chances of landing on it. Once the ball lands on this slot, you’ll be awarded with two free spins, whether you have placed chips on it or in a different number. As you have probably guessed, this feature is where the double bonus spins roulette got its name.

As previously mentioned, you can also place a bet on the lone yellow slot. You can actually make three kinds of wagers on this particular betting space. The first is the straight yellow bet that wins 12:1, or twelve times your bet. However, if the yellow comes up again in the resulting bonus spin, you’ll win 120:1, and if the same occurs in the third spin, you’ll get a whopping 1200:1 win!

The other two bets are the Split and Trio yellow bets. The first is a bet placed on the yellow B plus another placed on green 0 or 00, paying out 6:1. The second is played in a similar manner, this time covering both green slots and pays 4:1.

As you can notice, double free spins bonus roulette is played on an American live roulette online wheel and that perhaps is its biggest disadvantage. Fortunately, what extra house edge created by the zeros and the yellow slot is negated by the rare bonus spins, should yellow B ever come up at all.

Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that you won’t find enjoyment in this version of live roulette online. The free bonus certainly is an interesting spin to the game, and the progressive win on yellow is something you’ll really hope for.

Seven-figure score by Poker Pro in Serious Jeopardy

Earlier this year poker star and professional Blair Hinkle won over $1.2 million in a Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) main event. Hinkle’s prize was one of the largest the site had ever awarded, and it coincided with the company’s alleged insolvency. However, he had no way of knowing that his seven-figure cash award was in serious danger, or that his winnings existed partly as what authorities have called “phantom funds” within the Full Tilt poker site.

According to Hinkle, the company took about a month to respond to his emails asking to raise his $8,000 per-day limit on cashing out. The site then asked him to re-verify his account. By the time the process was over, it was April and Black Friday had hit the poker community. Furthermore, none of his requests to withdraw just $48,000 of his winnings had been successful.

Memo to Hinkle and the thousands of online poker players in the United States: online poker is illegal! It doesn’t matter whether or not you think it should be legal. It isn’t.

Hinkle is under the delusion he will see his money some day. Read his thoughts at Card Player
