Type of roulette
Therefore, it becomes a very popular game for the gamblers. There are different kinds of roulette, basically, two types which are American and European. Some criticize American wheel is less fair to the gamers as it adds “00” slot to increase the advantage of the casino while there is only a single zero in the European version.
As roulette originated in France, the European version of the game is arguably the most authentic version one can play. The numbers on the European roulette wheel range from 0 to 36 (excluding the 00 found on American wheels), so players have a slightly higher advantage playing European roulette than they do when playing the American variety: When playing European roulette, the odds of winning are 1 to 37.
Furthermore, while the odds of winning increase when playing European roulette, the stakes decrease significantly. The house edge in European roulette amounts to 2.7 percent (in the American variety, the figure is 5.27 percent). This results in smaller losses should you lose while playing European roulette.
There is another roulette called French wheel, it is seen to have no difference from the layout and numbers. The only difference is the rules underlying in French wheel. “En Prison” and “La Partage” are applicable when the ball reaches on zero slot, gamers are allowed either to receive 50% of the bets back or leave their bet for the next round.
