simple wasn't it? There are 2 varieties of Roulette, European
(also known as French) and US. They differ in the number of 'beds'
(slots) there are on the wheel. European Roulette has 37
beds, 1 - 36 and 1 zero. The US version has 38 beds, 1 - 36 and
the US version having an extra bed, and thus making your chances
of winning a shade longer than the European version, the payout
odds are the same.
