Fixed Odds Betting roulette and cards gives a 54 positioned roulette style game for increased returns but longer odds.
Quick Bet Cards is a semi-popular roulette style games, using a complete deck of playing cards rather than a standard roulette wheel. It can be found mainly on William Hill and Bet Fred fixed odds betting terminals, although there are also some independent betting shops that host the game on their betting terminals.
A standard deck of fifty-two cards is used, plus an additional two joker cards which basically act as the zeros. The paying odds are 50/1 out of a total of fifty-four slots for the ball to land in. This makes the return to the player around 96%, which in the scheme of betting shop games, is pretty good odds.
The majority of the bets, and the way you bet is the same as regular roulette, with straight up numbers, and outside betting.
As the straight up number pays 50/1, the maximum bet per number is £10 which will return the £500 maximum win per spin. Outside bets pay even money on red or black, and an additional suit bet (diamond, club, spade or heart) pays 4/1. There are no odd/even or high/low outside bets.
You can also bet on splits, corners, streets of four cards, and streets of eight cards. These pay the straight up odds, divided by the amount of cards covered, i.e. a split pays 25/1, a corner 12.5/1.
A lucky streak on Quick Bet Cards can result in a far higher profit than standard roulette due to the higher paying odds, although of course the odds are longer. And likewise, a losing streak may last longer for the same reasons.
Any playable system for roulette can be adapted for Quick Bet Cards to add an additional dimension to the game, but targeting individual numbers will usually take longer.
