American Roulette - features, betting, and stats

American Roulette features

The picture shows you how the American Roulette table and wheel looks like. You can read about the unique features of this type of roulette.

American Roulette features

 

The main difference between the American Roulette and other roulette games (like the European and French) is that the american one has 2 zeros (a regular and a double). Mostly because of this, the house edge is increased above 5% (RTP 94,74%). Aside from these things, the game works just as a regular roulette. A cool little feature is the custom layouts. You can edit your bets, and save them, so next time you don’t have to click on everything again (there is also a rebet feature).  You can also choose the “auto play” option as well , which has many settings.

 

 

American Roulette betting

The American Roulette game’s betting looks like the other roulette games, but with double zeros (they are next to each other on the table, at the end of the rows) it’s possible to split bet on two zeros and there is the five bet (also known as basket bet), betting on the numbers 1,2,3, and the two zeroes, they are the only two unique bet types in American Roulette. The casino chip sizes range between 1 and 50 and the maximum bet for even-money bets is 80 and 40 for other types in this particular version.

 

American Roulette paytable, payouts

  • Dozen bet (betting on the symbols 2to1, so on a full row of numbers, 12 numbers per bet) – 2:1
  • Even money bet (quite a lot of things:  Red/Black, Even/Odd, 1-18,19-36) – 1:1

 

American Roulette wining strategy

There is a lot of misinformation about working American Roulette strategies and winning roulette strategies in general, so called roulette systems. There aren’t any! Don’t get scammed, especially if people ask for money to tell you their secret “guaranteed to win roulette strategy”, there is no such thing. There is only one thing you can do to hack the system, but that only works in brick&mortar casinos, it’s called wheel bias, and you can read about it here, but it doesn’t work online and it only works with old roulette wheels.

 

American Roulette history

European roulette was invented in Paris, France, in the 17th century. However, it only reach the states in the 19th century starting in Louisiana (disputed, not certain), the double zeros came about because casino owners in the New world wanted a higher return per player compared to the European casinos, so it’s the greed of US casino owners which is responsible for this version. No wonder it never became popular outside of the North American continent (, however not really popular outside of the USA, Canadian casinos regularly have European wheels too).

 

American Roulette rules

Double zeros, which was is already explained above (zeroes are green, neither red or black and are neither odd or even).

 

American roulette jackpot, highest win

Roulette doesn’t have a jackpot, but perhaps winning with a bet on zero can be considered one, many people consider it special, even though it doesn’t pay more than any other straight up number bet. If you bet on a single number you will win 35x of your bet. That is the closes thing roulette has to a jackpot.

 

American Roulette free spins

It’s not possible to win free spins in American Roulette. However, some casinos occasionally offer free spins (also called free games, same thing) as part of a promotion, check out the offers on this page, if you are interested.

 

American roulette terminology

American roulette breaks the tradition and doesn’t use the French terminology (you can see this above, at the paytable section), they use English names for every type of bet. Apart from this the same terminology applies, you can read the comprehensive roulette terminology on the main roulette page at the bottom. A split bet on the two zeros, one of the unique type of bets in American Roulette doesn’t have a special name. And the other unique bet is the five bet (also called a basket bet) is a form of a line bet, but instead of 6 numbers you bet on 5, and these five are the two zeroes and 1,2,3, payout is 6x your bet, in comparison of the 5x of a regular line bet.
