Learn Roulette Rules
By Simon Ho
The aim of Roulette is to correctly guess where the ball will land after each spin. By placing bets on the appropriate square(s).
European Roulette table layout
In European Roulette rules there are 37 numbers, 0 is green, 18 are red and the remaining 18 are black. The zero gives the house it's edge (of 2.7%) i.e. there is a 1/37 chance of the ball landing on any particular square, but the payout is only 35 to 1 + your original stake if you win.
These are relativity specific bets which carry greater risk (unless multiple inside bets are spread over the board) of course greater risk also carries greater potential returns.
These are spread out bets with better odds at lower returns. Note the zero is never covered by outside bets.
Inside & outside bets will cover the vast majority of bets you will place but you can read about additional types of Roulette bets to learn Roulette rules on the special bets offered by some casinos.
French - best variant
The best variation of Roulette we have dubbed as 'French Roulette' will feautre the 'En Prison' rule where half of your 'even money' bets (colour, even/odd and high/low bets) are returned when a zero is spun. Cutting the house advantage in half to 1.35%. Note that there is also the similar the 'la partage' rule, only in this case the player loses half the bet and does not have the option of leaving the bet. Casinos offering French Roulette
American - worst version
In American Roulette rules there are 2 zeros, increasing the house advantage to 5.4%. There is no sense on playing the American version when there are plenty of online casinos offering the European version.
