Always wanted to play online roulette but never knew how? Here’s a quick overview of how to play the extremely rewarding game of roulette.
For starters, it’s good to know that there are a couple of different versions of roulette - European, American, and French. The general way to play the game is pretty much the same except for a couple of minor differences (like French and European roulette have 37 pockets while American roulette has 38).
The object of the game is to choose the winning pocket in which the ball lands on the roulette wheel. You have the possibility of betting on individual numbers, different combinations of numbers, odds or evens, or pocket color (black or red).
These betting options are the main thing to keep in mind while playing. Remember, we have plenty of games at Titan Casino. So, if roulette isn’t you’re thing, you can always play slots for a different gaming experience.
You might be asking yourself, how am I possibly going to win? Well, to win at roulette everything you need to do to increase your probability of success revolves around placing bets with the least house edge.
Here’s where the different types of roulette games tie in. In European roulette, the wheel has 37 slots numbered 0-36 which makes the house edge 2.63%. In American roulette, the wheel has 38 slots because of the addition of the double zero (00), which increases the house edge to 5.26%. This means you shouldn’t bet 0, 00, 1, 2, or 3 as this explodes the house edge to over 7% in American roulette.
For example, when playing European roulette, if you bet black, then your odds of winning are 18/37 (zero is neutral), meaning if your ball lands on zero or any red number you lose. Therefore having two zeros on the table, as with American roulette, further decreases your odds of winning.
