Types of Online Roulette

Posted on August 14, 2022 by Lucien Halfacre

As many casino-savvy players already know, there are two chief kinds of online roulette. I plan on covering a few of the differences between the two versions of the popular casino game and in doing this, helping you, the player, decide which game is most suitable for you.

The first version of online roulette I want to discuss is American Roulette. The American roulette wheel has the numbers 0, 00, and numbers from 1 to 36. Due to the excess amount present in American roulette, amateurs may be better advised to adhere to European roulette due to the slightly better chances.

Secondly, we've got European roulette (also called French roulette). Instead of its American counterpart, it's the exact numbers except for the"00" the American version appends. This, as was said above, gives European roulette slightly better chances than American roulette.

Among the subtler differences between both roulette games is that in American rouletteplayers get different color chips for easier differentiation of stakes, whilst in Europeanplayers generally get the identical color chips, requiring the various players to need to be alert! Also, European croupiers collect up the chips with quite nifty-looking rakes, whereas American croupiers have a tendency to be more inclined towards using their hands.

There's a rule in European roulette known as"En Prison". This permits the gambler, if the zero comes up, to either surrender one half of the outside wagers or to leave them for another match. This rule drops the house edge even lower, taking it to 1.352 compared to the 5.26 available from the American game, thus making the European game slightly more enticing.

At the end of the day, it's up to the participant to choose whether he wants to go for the safer bet with European Roulette or if he prefers the thrill of the risky American Roulette..
