Possible Bug - Even/Odd Bets Edit

Placed a bet on even and odd, ball landed on single 0 and the result was broke even. I thought that the 0 and 00 would not be even or odd. 07:51, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

I'll try to verify this and note it in a Rule Variations section similar to on the Blackjack page. JonCollins 20:40, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

Rules Edit

Do we really need the rules of roulette here? They aren't particularly well written, either, and include mis-information (for example, there is no real strategy in roulette and outside bets are not "safer" than inside bets). I think someone should just go to wikipedia if they want to learn how to play, then they can come here to learn any rule variations and notes/bugs. JonCollins 20:40, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

Maybe a basic rundown at most, with the odds at each casino (if they vary) for each type of bet. --Kris User Hola 21:10, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

Possible Bug on with bets on 0Edit

Bet max on zero twice now on the PC version without a payout. Every time it hits I lose the 200 chips. Can someone confirm this?

Also bets on 0,00 with pay 17:1 don't pay a thing instead we loose what we bet.

This also happens with the Xbox version of the game, when the ball lands on either the 0 or 00 (when I've bet on 0,00) I loose my bet.

Can confirm that 0 always loses for PS3 as well, happened multiple times today with a bet on 0,00. 20:49, July 17, 2013 (UTC)scragged

Anti-cheat bug? Edit

I just went into a casino for the first time in my game. I exchanged caps for some chips, and played a little blackjack. I won a few caps, so I quick saved. Then I tried to play roulette, but I got the anti-cheat message even though I had not yet played roulette. I tried to play a slot machine and got an anti-cheat message for it too. --Jimnms 00:30, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Luck doesn't affect Roulette. Edit

I don't think so. Could it be that this particular game isn't governed by Luck?

I have 10 Luck, I betted on a single number, I won after the 3rd Spin. 23:24, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

15 spins, 10 luck, single number lost em all... 09:10, December 20, 2011 (UTC)

- roulette is almost entirely unaffected by luck, it will only help when your number is close to where the ball drops and even then i think its a low chance that your feeling lucky comes into effect. Anyway its great for my 95% pure explosive char that has 1 in luck, BET IT ALL ON BLACK 13!! won on my 5th try and got booted

Note About Profitability Edit

Should there be a mention about the profitability after the patch that impacted slots? Since the maximum bet for Roulette was unchanged, and the maximum payout stays at 1:35, waiting for the big payout can be likened to waiting for the jackpot at slots. The most you can now win at slots is 7500, and that's if that slot machine allows a bet of 75 (The Atomic Wrangler has a max bet of 40) and even with high luck is rather inconsistent. I noticed with a high luck (I had 8 when I tried this) the table will repeat a certain number, making a big payout relatively easy to get. This may be useful for low level characters attempting to do the clinic run, now that slots have been neutered--FinaLLancer 16:58, March 12, 2012 (UTC)

I used this method and won about 10k total chips before getting banned. I got to about 4900 though blackjack and then bet 200 on 7 until I won the 7k jackpot. It took about 30 tries with 10 Luck. I used the caps to get 2 implants at L2. 21:31, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

One Chip Bug Edit

I think that I ran into a bug, though it seems funny that no one else has pointed this out. I have a luck of 9 and was giving my first spin at the roulette table at the Atomic Wrangler. This is my first casino ever. So, this is what happened: every time that I won (getting that message about feeling lucky), I would win a single chip. Losing would normally be one chip as well, though I managed to lose the right amount once. It's possible that I was doing something wrong, but I can't figure it out if I am. I can raise and lower how many chips are in the stack.

As an aside, the controls seem to be wonky; the keyboard shortcuts are unintuitive and you can't use the arrow keys, unlike with the caravan game. Anybody else frustrated with the casino? -- 20:10, February 6, 2013 (UTC)

Personally, I'm annoyed that it doesn't remember your previous bet after each spin, and there is no "Bet Max" command either. Of course, I hate roulette and only play it just enough to complete the associated challenge, so at least the annoyance is minimal. --FFIX (talk) 19:50, April 8, 2013 (UTC)

As of the last patch one of the roulettes in the Ultra-luxe has this bug as well. If you bet 200 chips and win you only get one chip, but if you lose then all 200 caps are removed.

Banned BugEdit

Recently, I swindled the Tops Casino out of their money on roulette and got banned from playing there. Now, in the Gomorrah Casino, I'm banned from playing roulette as soon as I enter, without ever having previously entered. I can still play other games in the Gomorrah, but not roulette.

Possible work-around for the anti-cheating measureEdit

Not sure if this is just for my game, but here's my strategy: Buy 200 chips, only. Save at the table and bet them all on one tile. If you lose, let the table boot you out to the player screen. Then, quickly press start, exit out of the pause menu, click on the table, then reload your previous save at the table. For me,k this removes the anti-cheating measure and lets me play almost nonstop. I'd appreciate it if someone else could test this and add it to the page only if it works. I play on the xbox 360.
