About European Roulette
Now, if you’re familiar with European Blackjack, you’ll know that the European versions of these popular casino games aren’t too different from their American counterparts as they’re basically the same game but with a few subtle tweaks. These subtle tweaks, however, are sometimes the difference between a big win and a loss. The main difference between European Roulette and American Roulette is that the European version has 37 pockets for balls to land into whilst American Roulette has 38, this means that the house edge is actually favourable on the European version.
What is Roulette?
Due to its variety of unique betting options Roulette is a popular casino game around the world. Like slots, Roulette has a number of different variations but each one is tailor-made for certain countries and players. The reason Roulette is so popular is due to its simplicity to grasp and play, whether that would be in front of a live audience or sat behind your computer screen. The original Roulette was created in the 17th century by a man who was attempting to create a motion slot that didn’t require electricity, he failed in his goal but ended up creating the Roulette wheel.
