European Roulette Rules

Roulette has been century’s favorite game, since the 18th century, shrouded in mystery and laden with fun. The roulette is designed in the form of a rotating wooden wheel, twirling on its axis.

In this roulette game, players make their bets on which number pockets the ball will drop in. the roulette wheel is made up of 37 number pockets with only one zero which is green in color. The rest of the numbers 1 to 36 are either black or red. The pocket alignment on the roulette wheel follows a mathematical precision rather than being a random placement. This creates equal chances of winning for each number.

Because this variant of roulette has just one zero pocket, the house advantages are down very significantly. However, it is much more dramatic because of the en-prison rule. If the ball lands on the zero pocket, the players that placed the outside bets or even money bets can either choose to lose a half of the bet place or leave it untouched for the next round. In the next round you get the chance to see if the ball can land your number. Should this spin hit the number, you get your money back with no winnings.
