Roulette: Not all are created equal

Among the absolute classics of casino games, one certainly belongs to the top of all games: Roulette. The game of chance with the cauldron, the ball and the red and black fields simply belongs in every casino. It is inconceivable that even one casino in the world would not offer this classic game.  Aside from roulette, you can also play judi bola terpercaya.

European Roulette – An Overview

The best known and most popular is the European version of roulette, also called French roulette. The origins of the game are said to go back to the 17th century, although it is not clear whether the game actually originated in France or Italy.

In European roulette, there are a total of 37 numbers on the roulette wheel, the numbers one to 37 in the colors red and black and a neutral zero. On the playing field, there are all numbers again as well as various betting options, to bet on groups of numbers such as columns of numbers and sequences of numbers. The number zero stands for the house edge in roulette, as it is not included in number groups that are bet on. In French roulette, the house edge due to zero is 2.7%. This means that around 2.7% of the bets made at the table go to the casino as profit.

American Roulette – An Overview

At first glance, American roulette looks the same as European. Only when you take a second look you can see that the kettle and the seating area look different. The most striking difference in American roulette is the double zero. The American version of the roulette wheel has 38 fields: The numbers one to 36, a zero and a double zero. If there is another color-neutral zero, the house edge in American Roulette is 5.26%. The red and black fields alternate on the American wheel, but the arrangement is different and the same numbers are not black as in European roulette. However, the order of the numbers has no influence on the probability of winning. In American roulette games, the announcements are made in English, and the terms on the playing field are also in English.
