American Roulette (roulette)

American Roulette

​American roulette is among the table games, which enjoys the greatest popularity in casinos throughout the United States. So, the rules of American Roulette are pretty similar to the rules of European and French Roulette with one small but crucial difference – you have one additional slot – the double zero slot. Also, it means that you can bet on 38 numbered slots and not on 37.

Something else that sets apart American Roulette from the other classic variations is the number sequence on the wheel. Since here we have two zero slots, the numbers are arranged in different way – starting from the zero clockwise they are: 0, 28, 9, 26, 30, 11, 7, 20, 32, 17, 5, 22, 34, 15, 3, 24, 36, 13, 1, 00, 27, 10, 25, 29, 12, 8, 19, 31, 18, 6, 21, 33, 16, 4, 23, 35, 14, 2. There’s also, of course, one additional betting spot on the table – the one for the double zero which is located next to the single zero.

Game Rules

The objective in American Roulette is to predict the number on which the ball will land by placing one or more bets that cover the particular number. The wheel in American Roulette includes the numbers 1-36 plus a single 0 (zero) and a double zero (00) After betting time has expired, the ball is spun within the Roulette wheel. The ball will eventually come to rest in one of the numbered pockets within the wheel. You win if you have placed a bet that covers that particular number.​

Bet Types

You can place many different kinds of bets on the Roulette table. Bets can cover a single number of a certain range of numbers, and each type of bet has its own payout rate. Bets made on the numbered spaces on the betting area, or on the lines between them, are called Inside Bets, while bets made on the special boxes below and to the side of the main grid of numbers are called Outside Bets.

Inside Bets:

  • Straight Up - place your chip directly on any single number (including zero).
  • Split Bet - place your chip on the line between any two numbers, either on the vertical or horizontal.
  • Street Bet - place your chip at the end of any row of numbers. A Street Bet covers three numbers.
  • Corner Bet - place your chip at the corner (central intersection) where four numbers meet. All four numbers are covered.
  • Five Bet – place your chip on the outer boundary line of the betting grid between 0 and 1 (at the point where the bottom-right corner of the number 0 meets the bottom-left corner of the number one). A Five Bet covers five numbers: 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3.
  • Line Bet - place your chip at the end of two rows on the intersection between the two rows. A Line Bet covers all the numbers inboth rows, a total of six numbers.

Outside Bets:

  • Column Bet - place your chip in one of the boxes marked “2 to 1” at the end of the column that covers all 12 numbers in that column. The zero is not covered by any column bet
