It’s an oldie, but a goodie. And for adults only. Based on the classic roulette wheel, a shot is linked to each number on the board. The player spins the wheel, and whichever number the ball lands in they have to drink the associated shot.
It’s a fun game, because everybody starts to get suitably merry after a few rounds, and there’s that sense of jeopardy when a variety of drinks are used – especially ones that nobody wants to drink, e.g. tequila on the zero or chilli vodka on number 13.
Shot roulette is an easy game for party-starters to create, too. All you’ll need is a roulette wheel and ball (these are cheap enough to buy in ‘travel size’), and the numbered felt upon which players traditionally place their bets.
If you don’t want to ruin your game table, you can always draw a grid featuring 37 numbers (38 if you’re playing American Roulette, of course). And get ready to redraw it, as there are likely to be spillages!
Play Shot Roulette Online
Shot roulette can easily be adapted if you have an online casino account. Just ask each guest to contribute to a pot of money, which you will use to play online roulette.
Assign a shot glass to each number on the roulette wheel, log into your online casino account and start playing. You should place a series of even money bets. Take it in turns to drink the shot that corresponds to the pocket the ball lands on, and let the good times roll.
During proceedings, your account balance will go up or down depending upon how successful your bets are. At the end of the evening, you can all split the proceeds.
The even money bets you can place when playing roulette online are red/black, odd/even or high/low (1-18, 19-36). There is a house edge, due to the green zero, but it is lower on European roulette. That house edge is slashed even further on French roulette, so seek that variant out for your casino party games.
