In This Game Overview

  • Rules of American Roulette 
  • Strategy and Luck 
Easily one of the most recognizable games with its signature wheel, croupier and expansive table layout, American Roulette is the kingpin of table games. This game pits player against the spinning wheel in a contest like none other. With challenging odds to overcome, online roulette players rely on smarts, strategy and a generous dollop of luck - for good measure! 

Learning the rules of American Roulette
American Roulette is much like European Roulette with one subtle, albeit important difference. That difference comes in the form of an extra number on the Roulette Wheel - 00. At first glance this may not seem significant, but it makes a tremendous difference to the house edge in the game. 

While European Roulette has 37 numbers (0-36), American Roulette has 38 numbers (00, 0-36). The house-edge in American Roulette is 5.26%.This means that on any particular number wager, the odds are 1 in 38 or 2.63% of hitting it, and a 37/38 or 97,4% chance that the player loses his/her bet. 

Combining strategy and luck
Americans have long enjoyed the excitement of this game and indeed many big winners have been made. American Roulette does disadvantage players by dint of the greater house edge,but statistics rarely feature when online players are enjoying a lucky streak at their favorite game. 

Contrary to popular belief there is no proven rule suggesting that either red or black, odds or evens, or any other combination should emerge in any particular order. It's purely the luck of the spin. And on that note there are significant winnings to be had with odds of 35 to 1.
