Roulette is one of the most popular casino games and it is also of high demand in online casinos. The advantage of playing it lies in the fact that there is a huge variety of roulettes to choose from.
The most popular online roulettes are American European and European roulette. By the name it is possible to foresee that the rules of roulette online are based on the rules of real roulettes offered by offline institutions in these parts of the world. American roulette dominates in the US casino and European roulette is most common in offline casinos of Europe. So, what is the difference between these two roulettes?
The American and European and other types of roulettes
European roulette has 37 sectors on the wheel, from 1 to 36 and “zero”. 0 gives the main advantage of the casino. All bets lose when 0 appears to be winning. This gives the casino 2.7% profit from the European roulette.
American roulette, unlike the European one, has 38 sectors on the wheel, from 1 to 36, 0 and 00 (double zero). Therefore, in American roulette, the bets lose if 0 and 00 are winning. The advantage of a casino in American roulette is approximately twice higher than in the European roulette – 5.26%. That’s why American roulettes are less popular among players. If online casinos offer to choose from both types of roulettes – European and American, players prefer to play European one.
The third option is French roulette. It has 37 sectors on the wheel, as well as in the European one. French roulette includes “La Partafa Rule” that dominates in some casinos in France. If zero appears on the wheel, players who bet on this sector, are given equal chance by the casino and offered half of their initial bet.
No zero roulette
“No zero” roulette is the fourth option. The peculiarity of the game is that there are no “zero” on the playing field and roulette. “No zero” roulette wheel contains only 36 digits.
