As many gambling den-experienced players already realize, there are 2 main types of web based roulette. I plan on covering some of the differences between the 2 types of this popular gambling house game and in doing so, helping you, the gambler, determine which game suits you very best.

The first variation of internet based roulette I would like to discuss is American Roulette. The American roulette wheel has the numbers zero, double zero, and numbers from one to thirty-six. Due to the additional number existing in American roulette, amateurs may possibly be better advised to stick to European roulette because of the somewhat better odds.

Secondly, we have European roulette (also recognized as French roulette). As opposed to its American counterpart, it has all the same numbers except for the "00" that the American version appends. This, as was said above, gives European roulette a little bit better odds than American roulette.

One of the subtler variations between the two roulette games is that in American roulette, gamblers receive distinct color chips for simpler differentiation of bets, while in European, gamblers generally obtain the same colour chips, demanding the individual players to be alert! Also, European croupiers collect the chips with rather awesome-looking rakes, whilst American croupiers tend to be far more likely to be using their hands.

There is a rule in European roulette called "En Prison". This enables the gambler, if the zero comes up, to either surrender one half of their outside wagers or to leave them for the next game. This rule lowers the house advantage even lower, taking it to 1.352 instead of the 5.26 obtainable in the American game, thus making the European game a little bit much more alluring.

At the end of the day, it is up to the player to determine whether she wants to go for the less dangerous wager with European Roulette or if he likes the excitement of the far more dangerous American Roulette…
