Triple zero roulette has been introduced at two casinos in Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood and New York-New York.

Venetian got the first triple zero roulette table (two, actually) on The Strip back in Oct. 2016, and it seemed inevitable the much-reviled game would proliferate.
'DWTS' crowns new champion and viewers are not happy. Burt's Bees apologizes for offensive holiday ad. David Maas, NBA halftime showman, dies of COVID-19. Over time, the game also gained numerous nicknames. Since roulette is derived from the French language, it was only fitting to give it the nickname of “little wheel”. Another common nickname is The Devil’s Game. Other than the fact that the numbers on the roulette wheel add up to 666, this has got nothing to do with any satanic forces. But did you know the roulette secret that all numbers on the wheel add up to the number 666? This is the reason it’s sometimes referred to as ‘the devil’s wheel’. The American roulette wheel has a bigger edge compared to the European wheel due to the 00, but to experienced players, this makes little difference to their strategy.
That it has.
Here’s a look at the triple zero roulette table at Planet Hollywood.
On the bright side, one of the “fun facts” about roulette stays the same: The numbers on a roulette table add up to 666.
“What is triple zero roulette?” you ask.
Well, a typical roulette table in U.S. casinos has two zeros.
On a table with two zeros, the house edge is 5.26%. That’s one of the highest house advantages in the casino.
On a triple zero roulette table, the house edge jumps up to 7.69%.
See, that’s what makes a much-reviled game so reviled.
Given the odds are worse on a triple zero table, why would people play it? You ask great questions!
Typically, the minimum bet on a triple zero roulette table is lower than on a double zero table.
Yes, there are some single zero tables in Las Vegas casinos, but they tend to be reserved for big spenders. An exception is the single zero table at Cromwell. There’s a premium to be paid for the better odds, of course. The minimum bet at Cromwell is $25.
The house edge in a single zero roulette game is 2.7%. You go, Cromwell.
How did we know more triple zero games would make their way to Las Vegas casinos? Another excellent question!
We knew because players at Venetian’s triple zero roulette table (see below) didn’t care at all about the less favorable odds.
Triple zero roulette tables are often packed when double zero tables are empty.
It was the same at Planet Hollywood during our visit.
Planet Hollywood has eight roulette tables. Seven have a $15 minimum, one has a $10 minimum. The lower table minimum is more than enough to entice recreational gamblers, and casinos couldn’t be happier about it.
Before you start calling triple zero roulette players stupid, consider this: They’re not gambling to make money. They’re playing to have fun.
And here’s a confession: We had fun playing triple zero roulette at Planet Hollywood, too. And we won money to boot.
We even made money on one of the bets you’ll only find at a triple zero roulette table. It’s a bet on any of the zeros, and it pays 11-to-1.
Big thanks to Planet Hollywood for not asking security to Taser us for taking photos.
Oh, and while we’re at it, here’s another counter-intuitive fact about triple zero roulette: It can actually make your money last longer.
Despite disadvantageous odds, the lower table minimum at triple zero roulette means a typical player (assuming they make the minimum bet) will lose less over time than someone betting more at a double zero roulette table.
That’ll teach you to be less judgy.
So, no, not everything is ruined. But that doesn’t mean we have to like triple zero roulette.
Triple zero roulette is a symbol of an evolution taking place in Las Vegas casinos. As gambling revenue declines, casinos have to find new and clever ways of bolstering their bottom lines.
If guests play games with a higher house edge, casinos will continue to find ways to raise them even higher.
The irony, of course, is gambling revenue is declining because the perceived value of gambling has declined. Casinos tighten their slots, so players play slots less. Casinos change 3-to-2 blackjack games to 6-to-5, so fewer play the game. It’s a vicious cycle.
Our strategy is to play the games where we have the most fun. That way, we can spend our time being entertained rather than doing math.
We’d love to hear your thoughts. Do you care about the number of zeros on your roulette table?
Thanks to our friends at the You Can Bet on That podcast for alerting us to the triple zero roulette table at Planet Hollywood.

Roulette Table Adds Up To 666 NumbersMy downfall in my dark days of gambling was roulette. I thought I could beat online casinos, convinced that 'seed numbers' generated a pattern of numbers, not randomness. I learnt the hard way and will pay the financial price of this for the next few years. 6 months on I'm fine with this, I still have my family, my home and my job. These were close to being next to be staked once I had allowed online casinos to hoover up all of my money and available credit. Thankfully I had the sense to call time on gambling before I lost it all. Had I not I could well have been on the streets by now or worse.
I can recall fellow gamblers jokingly saying they would never play any kind of roulette. Usually citing the house edge, potentially rigged online sites and a couple who stated that the sum total of the numbers added up to exactly 666 so they knew they stood no chance of winning!
It's quite uncanny, sometimes numbers have meaning. I certainly felt that I was dancing with the devil at times when I burned thousands playing roulette.
Stay away from this unfair game. It's no coincidence that here in the UK the bookies have invested all of their money into FOBTs whose main game I believe is roulette. These machines are literally keeping high street bookies going, no one apparently betting on the horses any more.
As I've said on another post Einstein once said that the only way to win money at roulette is to
Roulette Table Adds Up To 666 Number
steal money from the table!!
Casinos and bookies are businesses - period, purely there to take your money and spit you back out once they've taken everything from you. Personally, although I have no evidence of this, I believe that many online sites may well let you win in the early days of your 'theft by mutual consent' relationship but then once they've drawn you in they will take all they can from you before moving on to the next naive deluded punter.
