again, kind of redundant: "a" is a singular article, and "single" is... well, single. so "a single space" means "singular single space".
The '''Mauville Game Corner''' (Japanese: '''キンセツゲームコーナー''' ''Kinsetsu Game Corner'') is a Game Corner located in [[Mauville City]] in the [[Hoenn]] region in {{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}.
In {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}, it is closed down, and the owner gives the player three dolls. The closure is likely due to {{wp|Pan European Game Information|PEGI}}'s current classification standards (simulated depictions of gambling must have at least a "12" rating).
The roulette wheels have twelve spaces. Each space has one of three colors and one of four Pokémon: yellow, green, and purple; {{p|Makuhita}}, {{p|Azurill}}, {{p|Skitty}}, and {{p|Wynaut}}. By betting where a ball will land, players can win [[Coin]]s.
Bets can be placed in three different ways: by singleone space, by color, or by Pokémon. Once a bet is placed, a ball will be spun around the wheel until it lands in one of the twelve spaces. Winning a bet on a singleone space returns twelve times as much as was originally bet, winning by Pokémon yields four times the amount bet, and winning by color gives three times as much. Each ball remains on the wheel after being placed; once six balls have been put into play, the wheel is reset.
As only one ball can fit into each space, bets on a Pokémon or color can change their odds and increase their payouts when some of the possibilities are taken off the board. The multiplier of a payout is always equal to 12 divided by the number of empty spaces of the bet type; for example, if a ball has already landed on a Wynaut, that row will have a ×6 multiplier (12/2) instead of the usual ×4 multiplier (12/3), as now there are only two Wynaut spaces left on the wheel instead of three.
