Types of Online Roulette

 

By: Mahal Ramapois

Roulette – American and European

As many casino-savvy players already know, there are two main forms of online roulette. I plan on covering some of the differences between the two versions of this popular casino game and in doing so, helping you, the player, decide which game suits you best.

The first version of online roulette I would like to discuss is American Roulette. The American roulette wheel has the numbers 0, 00, and numbers from 1 to 36. Because of the extra number present in American roulette, amateurs might be better advised to stick to European roulette because of the slightly better odds.

Secondly, we have European roulette (also known as French roulette). As opposed to its American counterpart, it has all the same numbers except for the “00” that the American version appends. This, as was said above, gives European roulette slightly better odds than American roulette.

One of the subtler differences between the two roulette games is that in American roulette, players receive different colour chips for easier differentiation of bets, whilst in European, players generally receive the same colour chips, requiring the respective players to have to be alert! Also, European croupiers gather up the chips with rather nifty-looking rakes, whereas American croupiers tend to be more inclined towards using their hands.

There is a rule in European roulette called “En Prison”. This allows the gambler, if the zero comes up, to either surrender one half of their outside wagers or to leave them for the next game. This rule drops the house edge even lower, taking it to 1.352 as opposed to the 5.26 available in the American game, thus making the European game slightly more enticing.

At the end of the day, it is up to the player to decide whether he wants to go for the safer bet with European Roulette or if he prefers the thrill of the more risky American Roulette…Read More:Types of Online Roulette
