Roulette has become an incredibly popular game over the last few hundred years and today, you can enjoy it both online and in casinos.
If you are playing in an American casino then the chances are that you will be playing American Roulette, this is very similar to European Roulette, but there is one important difference. In American Roulette the spinning wheel, which the game is based around, has an extra segment, a ‘00’. This means that the wheel has a total of 38 segments, 0, 00, and 1 to 36.
The wheel is continuously spinning and a ball is released into it. The idea of American Roulette is to bet on which segment you think the ball will stop. To make the game more interesting, and expand the betting options, the segments on the wheel are coloured red and black, except for 0 and 00, which are green.
Thanks to this, there are many different betting options in American Roulette. In addition to betting on individual numbers, you can also bet on groups of numbers. There are groups which are formed by the layout of the numbers on the wheel and betting area, and there are more general groups. For instance, you could bet on three adjacent numbers, a set of four numbers that form a square on the betting area, or you could bet on all the Red, Black, Odd or Even numbers. Of course, thanks to the 00 segment, there are more betting options in American Roulette than in European Roulette.
