Elite Home Theater seating

I’ve always advised my clients not to skimp on the seating for their dedicated home theater, even if it means sacrificing a few inches of screen size or other amenities. After all no matter how great the sound and image, if you’re uncomfortable the overall experience will be diminished.

For years now we’ve used theater seating from Acoustic Innovations in our custom home theaters and we’ve had nothing but positive experiences with their products. Recently however I ran across a line of theater recliners from Elite Home Theater Seating that really caught my eye.

One recliner in particular from EHTS the “A-1", looks as if it could easily double as the seat from an exotic sports car as much as theater recliner. I’m not ready to jump-ship and pledge allegiance to EHTS just yet but I’ll definitely keep them in mind.

I fully expected EHTS’s recliners to list for quite a bit more than other home theater seats based on their styling alone. According to EHTS’s pricing on their website my expectations were unfounded; they actually list for a little less than what we’re accustomed to.

A word of caution when buying home theater seating, try before you buy. Slick ads and product literature aside, trying one out is the only way to really know how comfortable they are.

Roulette Wheel Layout

The Roulette Wheel is the movable ‘bowl’ portion of the roulette table that is divided into red and black compartments that are alternately, but not sequentially, numbered from 1 to 36. Additionally, there is one 0 compartment and in the United States also a 00.

Where the numbers 0 and 00 are used they sit opposite each other on the wheel, all other numbers alternate red and black around the wheel.

Directly opposite each odd number is the next highest even number and pairs of odd numbers along with pairs of even numbers are found alternately around the wheel.

Roulette Table Layout

The Roulette Table has spaces colored and numbered to correspond with the colors and numbers of the wheel compartments.

Bettors have a choice of placing inside or outside bets. The Inside Bet is a wager on the numerical symbols or combinations of numbers ranging from 1 to 36, including 0 and 00.

Outside bets include segments of one third of the possible numbers to come up, excluding 0 and 00. These bets pay you 2 to 1, meaning if you bet $1 and the number comes up within the group you bet on you win $2 plus you keep your original bet of $1.

Also on the outside are options to wager on the numbers 1 to 18 or 19 to 36; even or odd; red or black. These pay 1 to 1 and are known as even money bets. They exclude the 0 and 00, which increases the house advantage and makes these bets less than a fifty/fifty chance
