European roulette tips & rules

European roulette tips & rulesRoulette was invented in Europe. It is now one of the most popular gambling games of Europe. So if you want to play European roulette you must be aware of the basic rules of the game.

Unlike its American counterpart the European roulette wheel has a single zero (0) & number 1 through 36. The single 0 wheel increases the players’ chance of winning & reduces the house advantage. Just like any other forms of roulette the croupier turns the wheel & throws in the roulette ball into the wheel. Players place their bets guessing on which number the ball would stop & if their guess is proven right then they win the bet.

Two types of bets can be placed on European roulette – inside bet & outside bet. Inside bets are placed on a single or a small group of numbers (4, 6, 8 etc.) where the chips are placed in the inner area of the roulette table. Outside bets are placed on a large group of 12 to 18 numbers & the chips are placed around the outer area of the roulette table.

The En prison rule is also used in European roulette which only affects the outside bets. According to this rule if zero comes up, your wager is in effect for the next spin of the wheel & if zero is hit again then you lose the bet, you lose your wager but if you hit the bet again then your wager is returned with no further payout.

There is no set strategy of winning European roulette. A player has to create his own strategy to win. But try to play European roulette since the chances of winning here are more compared to the American one. Always manage your money well. Don’t blow it at once. Split your money into smaller chunks to play for a long time.
