Online Casino Roulette real money
European roulette is the version of the game made famous by the casinos in Monte Carlo in the Principality of Monaco on the French Riviera. Despite common perceptions, the single-zero European roulette was not the original version of the game. Gaming operators in Europe in the middle of the 19th century started offering single-zero games to lure customers, overturning a tradition of two centuries of double-zero roulette gaming. Having one zero slot or pocket on the wheel is a big advantage to the gambler, because most bets on the wheel are losers when the ball ends up in one of the 0 pockets. For this reason, the 2.70% house edge is European roulette is much better than the American version of the game.
American roulette more closely resembles the original form of the game as it was played in the 17th and 18th centuries. Besides the pockets for the numbers 1 through 36, the wheel also includes the 0 and 00 slots. Again, adding this additional losing pocket lowers your odds of winning. The house edge is 5.26% on American or Las Vegas roulette, which is also called double-zero roulette. In most circumstances, you’ll want to avoid this game, if possible. On rare occasions, you can find rules that overturn this assumption. When you aren’t sure, play using the European wheel.
Play Real Money Roulette
When playing real money roulette in a brick-and-mortar casino, you’ll find that the American roulette is played in most places in North America, while the Euro game is played everywhere else in the world. Certain Las Vegas Strip casinos offer single-zero roulette in select locations of their gaming floors at certain times during the week, often as high dollar games with minimum bets of $25 or more. A handful of these Vegas Strip casinos offer occasional $15 European roulette, though you might have to visit at a specific time each week to play the games. People have posted online that a handful of Tunica, Mississippi casinos have offered single-zero games in the past, but that doesn’t appear to be the case at present.
In Atlantic City, New Jersey laws force casinos to offer special rules on American roulette. These rules are called “la partage”, which is French for “of the parts” or (in American parlance) “in part”. What this rule does is say you only lose half your bet when you make an even-money wager and the ball lands on the 0 or 00 slots. So if you made a $20 wager on the hi/lo, red/black, or even/odd propositions and the ball lands on the zeroes, you only would lose $10. This halves the house edge on the even-money bets to 2.63%, which makes this version of American roulette a slightly better bet than European roulette. Unfortunately, several of the Boardwalk casinos now offer “Rapid Roulette”, which offers the same good rules (thus satisfying New Jersey laws), but played at a faster pace than the standard game. As you might have guessed, this exposes you to the house edge more times per hour, thus increasing the casino’s average profits per hour.
Roulette is one of those table games that is only offered in casinos in certain states. For example, states like Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, and Illinois have casinos which offer the game. (In the case of Georgia, you’re looking at casino cruises rather than actual brick and mortar casinos.) Florida offers a roulette-type game, but because of state laws, they’re not really allowed to call it that.
Online Roulette Real Money
When you play online roulette for real money online, you’ll often find American and European roulette links side-by-side. The choice of which game to play is obvious (play the Euro game), unless you find out that the casino has specific rules which favor the USA game. Most of the time, the operator simply gives players the option, in hopes that ignorant American and Canadian gamblers play the traditional US version of the game, assuming it’s better. Unlike a live casino, the operator doesn’t have to play an additional employee to deal these games, so it’s little or no expense (depending on software provider) to offer the additional game option.
Again, if you have the option of the two and you don’t know what the rules are, play the European version of the game offered. Chances are, it’s the better option. I should mention that European roulette for real money which offers “la partage” rules (or similar “en prison”/imprisonment rules) are the best version you can play. This lowers the house edge down to 1.35%, which is comparable with games like craps and baccarat. In other words, this special version of the game has some of the best odds for any game in the online casino which has no strategy component. Baccarat, craps, and roulette tend to have little strategy to remember (besides knowing which bets to make), so they provide the best odds without having to study and remain sharp while gambling.
