If you knew that American Roulette is actually the original form of the game, you’d be one of few. Whilst many assume that French Roulette is the original, they are in fact mistaken. Also known as “double zero” or “00”, this variant offers you 38 track pieces as opposed to the standard 37 provided by standard variants.
The wheel used in this variety differs from the one utilised in other types due to the sequencing of numbers. In the American style, each number is opposite the next higher or lower number but in an ascending order. The exact sequence is not 0 to 30.
The main objective of this game is to correctly predict which section, zone or number the ball is going to land on.
You can place your bets on as many different combinations as you like, provided they’re in the table maximum.

In this type of Roulette, the wheel has 38 divisions with numbers from 1 to 36 as well as 0 and 00 can be seen. 1 to 36 are coloured in red and black in an alternate fashion with 0 and 00 being coloured in green.
Players are required to place their desired bet combinations before the dealer can turn the wheel and spin the ball. Once bets are placed and the dealer is set to go, they will turn the wheel in one direction and spin the ball into the wheel in the opposite direction. Once the ball comes to settle in a specific numbered pocket, the player who has bet on this pocket will be paid.
With every single number out of all 38 being arranged in the same way around the wheel, the ball has an even and fair chance of being able to land in any of the pockets.
Please note that bets can still be placed, changed or even taken away even after the wheel has been spun. Should the dealer have already stated that no more bets are allowed, nothing may be changed.
Once a winning number has been identified, it will be marked on the table using a marker. Winners will be paid and losing bets will be swept off the table. When this happens, you may then place your bets for the next round.
Every table has a minimum and maximum betting amount. You can spread your bets across the whole table, but may not be less than the minimum or more than the maximum.
Inside bets: Betting on a certain straddle or number
Outside bets: Betting on odd/even outcomes, colour and groups of pockets.

In case the winning number is 0 or 00, all of the above mentioned outside bets are halved and returned to the respective players.
