Single zero roulette is in other words, European roulette. This is one of the most played and fun games in all casinos around the world. Roulette is very easy to learn how to play and once learned, it is very exciting. The main difference between European Roulette and American Roulette is the zero factor. European Roulette includes a single zero wheel while American Roulette has a double zero wheel. Here, the rules of European Roulette are explained.
Rules of Single Zero Roulette
All of the numbered slots on the Roulette wheel are alternated black and red. The zero slot is the color green. Due to the one zero on the European Roulette wheel, the player has a better chance a winning than with the American Roulette rule. If a casino offers both European and American Roulette, most people would prefer European Roulette.
To start the game, a player must first place their bet. The way to correctly place one's bet or bets would be to place one or more chips on the Roulette table on the different various betting sections. After the player has completed this task, a little ball is removed from the starting slot and then the Roulette wheel starts to spin in one direction. Once the wheel is spinning at the correct speed, the little ball is thrown into the wheel in the opposite direction of the Roulette wheel. Eventually, the ball will start slowing down and come to a stop in a numbered slot. Whichever pocket that the ball lands in will have a number and a color.
The number will fall in the range of 1-36 or on the number zero. It will also fall in either a black, red, or green color. The slot that it lands on will determine the winning number and color. The online Roulette winning slot will also display to the player on their screen along with the latest winnings. Any losing bets will be eliminated from the Roulette table. If the player wins, this information will also be displayed on the screen and then added to their balance.
