Imprisonment bet

Imprisonment is a variant of the game only available on French Roulette tables. It's a twist of the "La Partage," where instead of getting half the bet back if the ball lands on Zero when playing an even money bet (red/black, odd/even, high/low), the player can choose to "imprison" the wager until the next spin. If the imprisonment bet wins on the next spin, the croupier returns the wager to the player minus the winnings of the original bet.

La Partage rule

La Partage is French for "sharing it," and it's not a bet but a rule otherwise known as the "half-back" rule. La Partage is only possible on French Roulette tables; availability depends on where you play.

La Partage means that if the ball lands on Zero, the standard variant gives a player half the wager placed on an even money bet (red/black, odd/even, high/low).
