American Roulette

Roulette has different kinds of variations, that you can find in the roulette game offer at online casinos. While most online casinos offer European Roulette, since it is the most popular variation, they also often offer American Roulette and French Roulette.

This version of roulette distances itself from the other roulette variations in that it has two zeros, instead of one. This results in higher win chances for the online casino: 1 in 19 in American Roulette, versus the 1 in 37 chances for European Roulette. Furthermore, players at American roulette tables also have different colour chips, and the numbering sequence on the roulette wheel differs.

How does American Roulette work?

With American Roulette, the wheel consists of 38 slots numbered from 00 up to 37. Because of this extra box, this also creates possibilities for additional betting positions. In regards to the rest, American roulette is played the same as the other roulette types. The dealer closes the bets and spins the wheel, and then the roulette ball in the opposite direction.

Naturally, at American Roulette, you have two zeros instead of one, which means that there is twice as much chance of you not receiving a pay-out for many bets such as 1 through 18 or red/black compared to European Roulette. This is why we suggest playing on European Roulette games if using roulette strategies or systems.
