This game for one or two players is a faithful rendition of the casino favourite where fortunes may be won or lost — but in this version you won't lose your shirt.

You can place all the bets found in the real game and the odds paid are the same as in the casino. Anticipation and suspense are maintained as you watch the ball spin round the wheel.

Once past the introduction you choose the kind of bets you require (A-K on the menu), then follow the remaining prompts to set the amount.

There is no restriction on the number of bets you can place — other than your bank balance.

You can look at the wheel by pressing L and spin it using the M key. In the two player mode the N and 0 keys switch the bet-placing option between players.

Your aim is to win $12.5 million and you are allowed to bet up to $250,000 if your bank balance will stand it. The various bets and the odds paid on each are shown in Figure 1.

The game ends when you have either run out of money or, hopefully, broken the bank.

When in two player mode, it's a good idea for player 1 to place all his bets first, as occasionally the chips overlap on the table and may obscure the other player's.

Player 1's chips are white and those of player 2 are red, but in two particular sets of circumstances — the bet of a Carre using 0,1, 2 and 3, and a Transversale Plein using 0 with 1 and 3 — a chequered chip is used for clarity.

If you are restricted to a green screen monitor your display will benefit from a change of INK 2 in line 320, from 9 to 18. Although this is not strictly the correct green for a roulette table you will be able to see the numbers more clearly.

Once Roulette's running you'll have hours of fun trying to break the bank. So, ladies and gentlemen, faites vos jeux ...

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
