If you’re a newcomer to the world of Roulette you might think that there is only one type. That couldn’t be farther from the truth given the history of the game and how far back in time it goes. Here are some of the Roulette variations which you can find in casinos all around the world.
You can tell a European Roulette table very easily because it has only one green “0” at the top of the table. These types of tables are very easy to play on and their betting grid is simple to understand because of the layout. The single “0” number also means that the European Roulette will give you some of the best odds out of all of the Roulette variants which are available in casinos.
This type of Roulette table is pretty much the same thing as the European one with the exception that it has an extra “00” number in addition to the regular “0”. Despite all of this the layout of the table is pretty much the same for both of these games. Just keep in mind that the payouts are exactly the same as in European Roulette but your overall odds are less favorable by a small margin due to the extra “00” number.
This type of table is essentially a redesign of the European table. You have the exact same betting options at your disposal with the same odds, but the table’s appearance has been changed quite a lot in this particular version. The numbers in this game will go straight through the center of the betting grid, with the black, red, even and odd bets placed on either side of it. You should try this game out if you want a table just like the European one but with a different layout.
This type of Roulette is sometimes also called “Roulette Pro”. Basically this variant has an extra betting area which is located above the main grid and it allows players to bet on popular combinations of numbers. The odds are exactly the same as if you had placed each bet on individually but the extra betting area will simply speed up the game if you like to put money down on certain combinations of bets. One of the most successful bets on the racetrack area is the neighbours bet. This bet allows you to bet on numbers that are next to each other on the wheel. This will allow you to quickly cover a part of the wheel.
This is a form of Roulette which isn’t very widely available and is more of a novelty option for people wanting to experiment. As you can imagine this type of table has fewer numbers on the wheel and accordingly less betting options available to the players. My advice is to try and stay away from this type of Roulette table since the house edge is a little higher than in the other Roulette variants.
