Practice and rules of the game of Boule
The game of boule is played on ones feet. The game is relatively simple and the maximum and minimum wagers are always posted at the table. It is required that the player takes his tokens to the cashier of the Casino before playing.
There is only one way to place: Before starting, the croupier asks the players to place their wagers, saying « Gentlemen, place your bets ».
Each player will place its wagers over a complete or shared number (see below).
It should be known that the straddle bets are not allowed, just as announcements are not allowed either.
The croupier will be able to repeat a second time « Gentlemen, place your bets » and « the bets are made » before judging that all the bets are marked and then launch the ball in the cylindrical plate. In a general way, the ball will be sent in the opposite direction of the plate’s rotation.
The croupier will announce then that « Nothing goes no more », informing that no player is able to place any wager until the next ball is launched. The croupier will be entitled to reject any wager placed after this announcement.
The ball will stop in one of the nine cups (the cups are numbered from 1 to 9). The croupier announces on which number the ball landed, as well as the three matching groups to which this number belongs on the six existing matching groups (Black/Red - Odd/Even - Inside/Outside).
Regarding Number 5, is not included in this category.
All the wagers placed over the resulting number are paid seven times the wager, plus the wager (the original one) which anyhow remains the property of the player.
The player, in this case, can leave it on the carpet to park it, or he can withdraw it. It is his choice.
All winning wagers, placed on the matches, are paid one for one, plus the original wager.
Example of gains
You bet your tokens on one of the nine numbers, directly on the gaming carpet. A winning number will pay back seven times your original wager.
For example, if you bet 2 Euros, then you will collect 2 X 7 = 14 Euros.
If you gamble on the matches (which are also simple called ‘chances’), they will pay you back your wager once. For example, if you bet 3 Euros, you will then have a profit of 3 X 1 = 3 Euros.
The croupier will start paying the winners as soon as all the losing wagers have been removed from the table.
The matches or chances are: Black/Red – Odd/Even - Inside/Outside
|Black||1 - 3 - 6 - 8|
|Red||2 - 4 - 7 - 9|
|Even||2 - 4 - 6 - 8|
|Odd||1 - 3 - 7 - 9|
|Inside||1 - 2 - 3 - 4|
|Outside||6 - 7 - 8 - 9|
Number 5 is paid like the other numbers, which means that it pays seven times the bet plus the initial bet. On the other hand, if number 5 is the winning one, all bets placed on the matches lose; in other words, it makes lose all chances known as simple.
