American Roulette

American roulette is a wheel spun gambling game that is played by spinning a ball opposite to the direction of spinning the wheel.

The object of the game is to get the ball to land on the desired slot on the wheel. The slot in which the ball falls is declared the winner. There are numbers on the slots and the person carrying the number of the winning slot goes home with the cash depending on the amount of bet he had placed.

The wheel of an American roulette game comprises of thirty eight slots. There is a single zero slot, one to thirty six slots and a double zero slot. Due to the presence of this double zero slot, American roulette is also called a “double zero roulette” game. There are however, various different ways of playing the American roulette game. There are many types of bets and myriads of ways of placing those individual bets. Each single bet will have a single combination of numbers and has unique distribution patterns.

The player has many options of betting in the American roulette system. You can choose from a range if numbers alongwith determining whether the number will be a black or a red slot one and whether it will be even or odd. However, the basic roulette bet types available are:

The straight up: you have to bet on any number and that number can be the single zero as well as the double zero. For this you will have to place the bet at the centre of the number you choose.

The split up: you have to bet on any two numbers, have to be consecutive numbers, and have to place the bet chip on the line that divides the two numbers. The street bet: this bet will allow you to bet on three numbers. All you have to do is place your bet chip on the inside of the left boundary line of the table you are playing on.

The corner bet: betting on four numbers by keeping the bet chips on the corner of the line, where the four numbers meet.

There are many more ways of betting in the American roulette but the ones given above are the most simple and usually placed types of bets. Apart from these types there are also the five bet, the line bet, the column bet, the dozen bet, the red bet, the black bet, the even bet, the odd bet, the low bet, the high bet etc.

One thing however which is trickery in the American roulette system is that numbers 0 and 00 are losing bets in all bet types other than the straight bet. So if the ball falls on any of these two numbers, then the table wins and the croupier takes away all your chips. This is a way for the casino to make money rather than giving the public a chance of making money.

There are more rules to the American roulette like the surrender rule where the outside bets are not lost on 0 and 00 but your get half of your winnings. This is allowed in only a few select tables and is not very common. The payoff is generally highest for the straight bet at thirty five to one.
