As one of the oldest casino games in the world, there are bound to be literary hundreds of versions of the game. The reason behind the large number of games is that each casino resort and every casino game developer wants to lure players to their games. A successful way to do this is to tweak the game in such a way that it is more attractive to the players. This involves lowering the house edge, reducing the size of the bets and giving higher jackpots

American Vs European

There are two versions that have managed to withstand the test of time and remain favourites. These are the American version and the European version. The European version is the original format of the game. When the game found its way to American casinos it got Americanized. The European version has a lower house edge so usually, internet casinos offer higher bets on the roulette. In the American version the house edge is higher and so the casinos can afford to have lower bets.

The Basics of Online Roulette Gameplay

Both versions of the game have the same gaming set-up. There is a roulette wheel, the ball and the roulette table. In the American version, the wheel has 38 slots while the Europe version there are 37 slots. There are numbers from 0-36 on the wheel with the American version having a double zero to make the numbers 38.

The wheel spins and the ball is also set in motion. Where the ball lands is the winning number and corresponding bets are paid.

Common Roulette Bets

The basics of online roulette state that there are basically two ways to bet in roulette. There are inside bets and outside bets.

Inside bets

They are bets on the actual numbers and the numbers that surround them. The odds of getting the bet correct are low so the payouts are high. For correctly predicting the number the ball will land on players will get 36:1 for online European roulette and 37:1 for American Roulette.

Outside Bets

These are bets on a certain group of numbers. This includes on dozens, odd numbers and even numbers. Players win more regularly with this type of bet but they pay out far less. They usually pay 2:1 or 3:1.
