About European Roulette
Some players may not know the differences between American and European roulette, some may not even have known that there are two versions of the casino game. At Crown Bingo, we are excited to showcase to you this addition to our [casino games](/games] arsenal. Despite holding the title as one of the best online bingo providers on the web; here at Crown Bingo, we think it is imperative to broaden our hold on the online casino game world.
As previously stated, the variations of roulette games can somewhat cause confusion amongst newer casino players and in some cases, even the veteran players. At their core, the two games have very little differences between them, however it is crucial to understand these discrepancies before continuing.
Firstly, the major difference between the two variants is the number of pockets (where the ball can land) and the effect this has on the house edge (payouts). In the American version, the roulette wheel has 37 pockets to play with whilst European only has 36. This is because in the States version of the game, there are two zero options, with a 0 and a 00.
Secondly, the house edge that corresponds with the outcome of your bet varies from game to game. Whilst the addition of a double zero pocket may seem minute, the impact it has on the potential payout on the game is tremendous. In American roulette, the house edge is at 5.26%, whereas in the European game, it stands at 2.7% - meaning your chances of winning whilst playing roulette are higher in the European version.
How to Play Roulette
With the European version accommodating 36 pockets for the ball to land in, players are able to cast ‘inside bets’ with these numbers. If players want to bet on the ‘outside’, they are able to do so by selecting red or black, odd or even, and the first, second or third dozen numbers on the table.
With a variety of chips on offer - their value ranges from £0.10, £0.50, £1, £5, £10, £25, £50, £100, £200 and £1000! European roulette is known for being able to accommodate all types of bettors, be you a beginner or something of a high roller.
In order to start the game, players must select the value of their chip(s) they’d wish to stake and where they’d wish to place them - be that an inside or outside bet. Once you’re happy, press Spin for the game to start!
This allows players to double their bet at a click of a button.
Once the round has ended, players have the option to select Rebet which will automatically stake the same bet from the previous round. Please note, the roulette wheel will not spin without selecting Spin - so if you do change your mind, it won’t automatically place your bet.
This feature will revoke the last chip you placed. If you place multiple chips, it will simply remove the chips in the order that they were last placed.
This clears the whole roulette table of all chips.
