The history of Roulette dates back to the years when there were no internet and no online casino. The game was initially famous in different countries and was played in ways the people liked to play it. With the invention of the internet, the world became a united place. Things that were specific to a region or country now had no boundaries. The same unification happened with this spinning wheel game and we were introduced with this American version of the Roulette game.
American Roulette is one of the most famous variants of the classic casino game of Roulette. It is so famous that it is the first variant which stands right beside the standard Roulette game, that you may see at a land-based casino and also at our Winissimo online casino. Winissimo Casino brings this globally loved Roulette game at your fingertips with its mobile casino services and round-the-clock availability.
So let us do the honours of introducing you to this game before you head towards spinning the wheel and see for yourself what the luck holds for you.
How is it different from its counterparts?
From whatever you might have heard about Roulette till now, you might be knowing that it is a game where a few numbers are written on a wheel and the wheel is spun to see if luck is in your favour. Unlike slot games that belong to the same category but are completely different, American Roulette is similar to any other Roulette game. Then what is different with this variant that makes it special? Let us dive in for more!
American Roulette is different from any other version of the game because of this one tiny change – ‘an extra zero slot’. A player who has not played a Roulette game before may not be able to understand how this small difference brought such a huge change that it needed to be turned into a different variant. A standard Roulette table consists of 37 slots, numbers 1 to 36 and a zero slot. Now, with the type of bets available in the game, there is a certain probability of the player winning the game and the house winning the game. This probability, or house-edge, changes drastically when an extra zero slot comes into play. Just because of an extra zero, the course of the game gets largely affected and therefore, a new variant is created.
Table layout of American Roulette
As mentioned earlier, the American Roulette has an extra zero which forces the creators to change the layout of this variant in comparison to the standard Roulette table. Here is the sequence in which the numbers are engraved in an American Roulette wheel.
0 – 2 – 14 – 35 – 23 – 4 – 16 – 33 – 21 – 6 – 18 – 31 – 19 – 8 – 12 – 29 – 25 – 10 – 27 – 00 – 1 – 13 – 36 – 24 – 3 – 15 – 34 – 22 – 5 – 17 – 32 – 20 – 7 – 11 – 30 – 26 – 9 – 28
These numbers can further be categorised under various factors. For example, according to the colour under which they are printed. These categories play a huge role in any Roulette game as they turn out to be betting options of the game.
While most of the betting options can be understood easily and will be discussed later, the one betting option that is specific for this table layout is the colour betting option. Here are the numbers categorised on the basis of their colour –
Red: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16, 18, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 30, 32, 34, 36
Black: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 29, 31, 33, 35
Green: 0 and 00
