There are several different types of Roulette out there and it is worth trying them all when you first start out to see which one suits you best. Different online casinos will offer different versions although some will offer more than one version.
The American version of the game gives two different ‘zero’ options, with both a single zero and a double. This means that instead of the usual 37 slots there will be 38 on the wheel in that version, although the single zero version will feature 37 slots just as the French version does. In other parts of Europe you may notice that the wheel used is the same as the French wheel but the way that the table is set out differs. The table is laid out in columns, while others are laid out in rows.
All versions of Roulette use different colored chips and these do not have any value, but will only feature the table number in a standard brick and mortar casino. When the game is finished the player swaps their chips for cash chips, and these can then be exchanged for actual money.
As with all games, there is the option to learn more about the different types by signing up to an online casino and making use of the practice version of the games. There is a definite advantage of being able to try a game before you have to spend any of your own money. Many of the online casinos will have useful articles and other information on their sites too, giving you the opportunity to read up on the games before risking your cash.
Roulette is one of the oldest casino games in the world and it is not difficult to understand why it is popular. It is easy to play and great for beginners.
