Are you ready for it?

Never play US Roulette if European Roulette is available

Fairly 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 2 zeros.

Despite 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.

This excerpt is taken from Winner Online:

"With the 38-number American wheel, the house has a big 5.26 percent edge. (Whenever 0 or 00 are hit, all bets lose.)

With the 37-number European wheel, the house advantage is 2.7 percent. In other words, on every $100 bet the house makes $2.70.

Obviously you want to look for casinos that offer the European, single-zero wheel -- and many online casinos do"

We only recommend online casinos which offer you a European Roulette game, try William Hill Casino for probably the best online European Roulette game available.

Column Bet

Dozen Bet
You can bet on a group of twelve numbers by placing your chip in one of the three boxes marked "1st 12," "2nd 12," or "3rd 12." A winning dozen bet pays 2 to 1.

Red/Black, Even/Odd, and Low/High Bets
A bet placed in one of the boxes on the left, long side of the table covers half of the roulette numbers (excluding zero ). Each box covers 18 numbers. These bets pay even money, 1 to 1.
