Replay Roulette: The greatest roulette challenge of them all

Replay Roulette, found at Ladbrokes and Coral outlets, is quite unlike any other roulette game on the market, either online or in betting shops:

Get ready for one of the biggest challenges in Roulette

It’s a standard European roulette game, but before each spin you can opt to buy a free respin for exactly the same bet, should you lose.

These respins are priced by the game’s software, and prices vary in accordance with what you bet on and how much you bet:

For example, a £1 bet on red will come with a 55p optional respin. That means if you chose the respin and red came up, you’d win £1 plus your original stake minus 55p - so you’d end up with £1.45 in total.

If black comes up, though, you’ll get another spin. If it’s black again, you’ve lost £1.55; if it’s red, however, you end up with £1.45.

At the other end of scale, you could make a straight up bets of £1 (there’s a minimum bet of £1 to activate the replay feature by the way). This will cost you 92p – obviously it’s more expensive, as it’s much more likely that you’ll get a respin.

Coming up with a strategy for this game is tricky, but achievable:

Firstly, you need to note that you should make bets that can’t result in an overall loss on any one spin: For example, if you bet £50 on red and £1 on a straight up bet on a black number that comes good, you’ll actually be £14 down – but you won’t get your respin because the game software will see that you’ve made a win.

A little statistical knowledge goes a long way...

Otherwise, it’s down to the ever-reliable mathematics of expected return, which all serious roulette players need to understand:

Expected return is a measure of what you can expect to win, given the probabilities on offer. It’s not an amount that you can actually win, but it is what you can expect to get back from your bankroll if you play the game an infinite number of times, so it’s the best measure out there.

By way of illustration, suppose you flip a coin and play double or quits with a £1 bet: Your expected return is ½ times £2, plus ½ times zero. That comes to £1, but you’ll actually end up with zero or £2.

The £1 expected return tells you that it’s a fair game, and if you play the game indefinitely you can expect to end up in the position you started at, with a £1 bankroll.

It’s gets a little more complex once we apply this to Replay Roulette, but stick with it as it’s not really that hard:

X denotes the probability of winning your bet
Y denotes the probability of losing your bet
Z denotes the amount you’ll win, if you get lucky

Your expected return in Replay Roulette will always be xz + xyz  -   and it’s not hard to put this into practice:

Suppose, for example, you opted to make a dozen bet of £1. The probability of winning is 12/37; the probability of losing is 25/37. 

You’ll win £3 if any of your dozen come up, and the formula gives you an expected return of £1.63.  

A premium of around 63p on top of your £1 bet would therefore be a reasonable amount to pay.

Obviously roulette has to be tipped slightly in the casino’s favour otherwise they wouldn’t let you play, so 3 or 4 more pence is reasonable – and you’ll find that the replay premiums on this game corresponding roughly to the formula. 

Take your time at low stakes and watch your returns improve

Try it and you’ll see, though you will find the occasional discrepancy that will yield you a better deal as you spend more time playing the game. This is predominately due to rounding, and means that premiums tend to get disproportionately larger the more you bet – so stick to smaller bets and you’ll be offered better value for money.

These are just a few tips to help you on your way: This game, more than any other form of virtual roulette, needs to be played a few times before you fully appreciate how it works, but – as ever – there are always ways to help yourself, so stick to the formula with simple wagers, and bet small.
