Of all the games available at online casinos roulette has to be one of the simplest and therefore one of the most popular. Online casino roulette is exactly the same game that is played in casinos all over the world but there are actually two separate versions of roulette which it is worth knowing about as one has a much better chance of winning than the other. The two roulette versions are American roulette and European roulette. There is a third version called French roulette but it is to all intents and purposes the same as European roulette. Online casinos often carry all three versions but European roulette is the best to play in the opinion of casinos.ie. The major difference between the two roulette versions is that European roulette has 37 numbers (1 through 36 plus a single zero) whereas American roulette has 38 numbers (1 through 36 plus a single zero plus a double zero). This addition of “00” means that your chances of winning are reduced but the odds paid are exactly the same as in European roulette. You may find that in some places (cruise ships are a well known example) only American roulette is available which is a good reason to stick with your online casino as both versions will be there. There is no good way or bad way to play roulette which is probably why it is so popular but there are specific ways and places to place chips which a croupier will help with if you are at a land based casino or of course an online casino will automatically help if you attempt to place chips in the wrong place. Another point to remember is that the numbers that have come up previously have no relevance to what the next number will be so just because there have been 6 red numbers on the trot does not mean that the seventh must be black.
