American Roulette: The classic casino game with double zero
American Roulette is a double zero roulette which consists of 36 numbers plus 0 and 00. It consists of a wheel with 38 stops, and a ball that can land with equal chance in any of those stops.
American Roulette is played by spinning a small ball on a round wheel with thirty-eight numbered slots. When the wheel stops, the ball comes to rest in one of these slots. The objective of American Roulette is to correctly predict the slot in which the ball will land. By predicting the right number, you earn a payoff on your bet. The size of the payoff depends on how the bet was placed.
Type of Bets in American Roulette
There are two main types of bets in American Roulette:
This is when you place a bet on any number on the table from 00-36.
This is when you place a bet outside of the table layout, such as Red or First 12.
Different type of inside and outside bets are as follows:
A chip can be placed directly on any single number, which can include zero (0) and double zero (00). The chip should lie exactly on one number.
A chip can be placed, on two adjacent numbers, on the line between two numbers.
Street Bet covers three numbers. The position of the chip is left outer line of the roulette table near the corresponding row of three numbers.
Corner Bet covers four numbers, each of which is adjacent to the other two, i.e. located in a square. The position of the chip is on the cross of the lines dividing these four numbers.
This bet can be made in only one place and covers five numbers: zero, double zero, one, two and three. The chips are placed at the end of the row between the numbers 00 and 3.
Line Bet covers two Street bets (i.e. six different numbers in two rows each of which has three numbers. For example: 4,5,6 + 7,8,9). The position of the chip is on the cross of the left outer line of the roulette table, and the line, dividing two rows, constituting "streets".
On the shortest side of the roulette table there are three fields, marked as "2 to 1". Covering one of these fields with a chip, you can make a bet on all twelve fields, located over the covered field. (Neither the zero nor the double zero are covered by any of the columns).
You can make a bet on the group consisting of twelve numbers, having placed a chip on one of the fields marked as "1st 12", "2nd 12" or "3rd 12". Each group contains numbers from 1 to 12, from 13 to 24, from 25 to 36 accordingly.
Red/Black, Even/Odd, 1 to 18/19 to 36
This bet is placed on one of the six boxes on the left, longer side of the table. A half of roulette numbers (18 numbers) corresponds to each bet, as all the numbers are divided into Red and Black, Even and Odd, Low (1-18) and High (19-36). (The zero and double zero are not covered by any of these boxes).
