Double Ball Roulette is roulette with two balls. I first saw it at the 2013 Global Gaming Expo and then again on February 18, 2014 at the Tropicana. No-zero wheel on Tropicana.
Double Ball Roulette, as the name implies, adds two balls to a standard roulette wheel. Compressed air propels the balls through a tube often triggered by a player. You may be wondering how they keep the balls from colliding in a physical game. The game shoots two balls out of a tube almost simultaneously. So the second ball is always behind the first.
You can also question if the odds of both balls falling in the same number are around 1/38, assuming they are fully random. At the gaming show, I pestered the game maker with physics questions for far too long. He informed me that an independent lab had done tens of thousands of spins and the probability of both balls landing on the same number was roughly 1/38.
The betting layout is similar to regular roulette. Inside bets give the player two chances to win but pay less. Outside bets require both balls to win, but pay more. An additional wager is that both balls land in the same number.
Double Ball Roulette is a fun new twist on a classic Las Vegas game. Binion’s is the first casino on Fremont Street to offer Double Ball Roulette.
Because that’s how we roll. Spin. Whatever suits you.
