2017-03-29 08:06:30

Roulette is one of the most popular casino games around and believe it or not, this game has been around since the late 17th century! The roulette cylinder was created in France by a physicist named Blaise Pascal who was looking to create a perpetual motion machine rather than a fun gambling game! There are actually a few variations of roulette that exist today and the main ones are European and American roulette. These games differ by the wheels and sometimes roulette tables that are used.

American Roulette

The main difference between this form of roulette and others is that it features an additional number: “00”. This is quite significant as it increases the house’s advantage as it provides more numbers on the wheel for players to pick and choose from. Basically, there is more money to be lost than won when additional numbers are added to a roulette wheel. The odds for this form of roulette are 1 to 38. The house edge for this type of roulette is usually 5.2%. Another interesting feature of this game is that the numbers on the wheel are placed in sequential order. For instance, the number 00 is placed right across the wheel from 0. The sequence of numbers looks like this on a standard American roulette wheel: 0, 2,14, 35, 23, 4, 16, 33, 21, 6, 18, 31, 19, 8, 12, 29, 25, 10, 27, 00, 1, 13, 36, 24, 3, 15, 34, 22, 5, 17, 32, 20, 7, 11, 30, 26, 9, 28.
