The most popular game in casino was and will be roulette. If you ask any person what games are in casino the first word he says is roulette. The rules of how to play roulette are really easy and maybe it is the reason of its popularity. There are three types of roulette exist in our days:
• American roulette (Double zero roulette). Here 38 numbers: zero, double zero and numbers from 1 to 36
• European roulette (Single zero roulette). Here 37 numbers: zero and numbers from 1 to 36
• French roulette (Single zero roulette). Forefather of European, has the same wheel but different playing field
• Russian roulette
These three types have some differences: numbers arrangement on the wheel, playing field, accessible stakes, procedures of playing and each type has own special rules (”En Prison”, “La Partage” and “Surrender”).
American roulette players use variegated counters. They seat at the one table and each of them has different counters. It considerably simplifies procedures of stakes and winning payouts. Counters can participate only on specific playing table. Dealer sells it with specified price. Player can turn his counters into money or traditional counters. Counters are removed from table by the dealer’s hand. When you play American roulette the casino’s advantage to win is 5.26% for any stakes except 00, 0, 1, 2, and 3. In this case advantage of casino is 7.9%. Two persons service the table intended for 6 players (dealer and his assistant who sorts counters)
In European roulette players usually use standard or classic counters. You can buy it in casino cash desk. Croupier uses special blade to remove the counters from the table. The advantage of European casino is 2.7%. European roulette’s table is serviced by 3 persons, one in the middle turns the wheel and two others service two playing fields. This table is intended for 16 players maximum.
Russians always confuse these two types because rules practically the same. Russian roulette undoubtedly deserves separate attention.
