Gambling is a popular pastime in the present day and thanks to the coming of the online casinos it has become more accessible and popular among the people. For those who want to enjoy a refreshing and exciting casino game, roulette is the best choice. American roulette, European roulette, French roulette and mini roulette are some of the popular roulette versions available in the casinos; however, it is European roulette which is most popular among the players.
Roulette is a table game in which the roulette wheel is one of the most important components of the games. Next, when the players have placed the bets, the dealer throws or spins the wheel in the clockwise direction and a small ball is introduced in the wheel in the reverse direction of the table. The number of the slot the ball will end up in after the wheel stops spinning will be the winning number.
One of the most important differences in the different versions of the roulette games is because of the differences in the wheel. The European roulette wheel consists of 37 slots which are numbered 1 to 36 and the last slot is for the zero. Unlike the American roulette wheel which has two slots for zero, a single zero and a double zero, the European roulette wheel has one zero slot because of which it has earned the name Single Zero Roulette.
The presence of this single zero makes a lot of difference in the rules, one of which is the lower house edge because of which European roulette is more popular than its American counterpart. The different numbered slots on the roulette wheel are colored red and black alternatively with only the zero slot colored green. Also the numbers on the wheel are seemingly arranged in a random manner but there is a logic. The arrangement of the numbers on the European roulette is so made so as to make it difficult for the players to win the game. If you notice carefully, the most important bets are arranged away from each other in crease the difficulty level.
Do not think that the layout of the numbers in a European and American roulette wheel is same; because of the non-existence of the double zero on the European roulette wheel, the numbers are differently arranged. The numbers are arranged on the wheel in such a manner so that potential biases across the wheel in terms of odds, evens, blacks or reds do not exist.
