Purpose of the game:

The croupier throws a ball onto a spinning wheel with 38 numbers (0, 00, 1, 2 ... 36).

The game aims to guess which of the 38 numbers the ball will stop on. The winnings depend on how the bets were placed.

American Roulette Wheel:

The wheel in American Roulette has 38 numbers, including 0, 00, 1 ... 36. This game is often referred to as "double zero" roulette.

Playing field and bets:

The playing table is similar to the table used in European roulette but has an additional field for 00 (Double zero).

The player can place bets on:

  • A certain number
  • Combination of numbers
  • Predict if the winning number will be red or black, even or odd

The size of payments and expectation depends on how the bets were made.

Surrender rule:

In some casinos, the player is given the option of Surrender. If 0 or 00 falls out, the player loses not the entire bet on equal chances (red/black, even/odd, big/small), but half of it. Playing by these rules, the casino has a 2.63% advantage over the player. Otherwise, the house edge is 5.26%.
