European Roulette

European Roulette is one of the three most wide spread types of roulette that can be found in any casino. European roulette has a wheel with 37 numbered slots – one is "0" and others are numbers between 1 and 36 in non-sequential order. This game is also called Single Zero Roulette. The numbers are black and red while "0" is green. The main aim is to predict which slot the ball will fall in. Firstly, you can make a bet on any number or set of numbers, colour or some other things (see Roulette bets for detailed information). Many casinos allow players to play the game in the free play mode.

European roulette has a 2.7% house edge (that is almost 2 times less than in American Roulette that offers an additional 00 slot). So, the most reasonable tip is to choose European Roulette for playing.

Note: single - zero roulette, house edge - 2.7%, Call Bets

There is also a difference in the sequence of the numbers on European roulette wheel when compared to an American roulette:

When playing European Roulette, your aim is to predict the number the ball will stop. First you have to place a bet. To play you have to click Increase (+) or Decrease (-) buttons and select the chip size you want to bet. Then click the Spin button. The ball is dropped on the roulette wheel and then stops. If you have a winning number, your win amount will display in the Win box. If you lose, the game is over and you can start again.
