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 differences between two versions of this popular casino game and in doing so, helping you, 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 numbers 0, 00, and numbers from 1 to 36. Because of extra number present in American roulette, amateurs might be better advised to stick to European roulette because of slightly better odds.
Secondly, we have European roulette (also known as French roulette). As opposed to its American counterpart, it has all same numbers except for “00” that American version appends. This, as was said above, gives European roulette slightly better odds than American roulette.
One of subtler differences between two roulette games is that in American roulette, players receive different colour chips for easier differentiation of bets, whilst in European, players generally receive same colour chips, requiring respective players to have to be alert! Also, European croupiers gather up chips with rather nifty-looking rakes, whereas American croupiers tend to be more inclined towards using their hands.
