European Roulette

European roulette is one of the most common variants of the game of roulette found in many casinos. This game uses a wheel that has 37 slots namely numbers 1 to 36 and a 0 which are in a non-sequential manner. This game is also referred to as Single Zero roulette because of the one zero. The numbers 1 to 36 are usually in red and black colours while the 0 is always in green colour. The main objective of this game is to determine the specific slot that the ball will fall in after the wheel stops spinning. This game allows players to place bets on a specific number or set of numbers they think the ball will stop at when the wheel comes to a stand still. European roulette also allows players to place bets on the specific colour they think the ball will stop at. Most casinos allow players to play this game in free mode and this is what most amateurs should play to know the strategies that they need to employ in order to increase their chances of winning. As is the case with any casino game, European roulette has a house edge which is 2.7% and this is almost two times less than the American roulette house edge which has an additional 00 number.

How to Play

All players are supposed to place their bets before the game starts. After all the players have placed their bets a ball is then released to the spinning wheel which is always at the opposite direction to the spin. Each player is then allowed a chance to spin the wheel and wait for it to stop and then check where the ball stops at. If the ball stops at exactly the same number that the player had placed their bets in then they will be rewarded. European roulette provides players with two options of betting and that is inside and outside betting. Inside bets are those that are placed in any of the numbers that are within the roulette table and that is the numbers 0 to 36.

Outside bets are placed on the numbers that are outside the roulette table for example red, first 12. Players can place bets on two numbers that are next to each other and this is referred to as a double or a two number bet. There is also a three in a row bet or three number bet which is the one placed on three numbers that are next to each other. This can be practiced for up to six numbers. Players also have the option of playing this game on the internet and all they need to have is a computer and an internet connection meaning that they done have to visit the casino halls physically.
