European roulette dates back to the 17th century in France and has today become one of the most popular games being played in casinos all over the world. This game can be played by up to eight participants and the casino is represented by a dealer also referred to as a croupier. The dealer is the one who is supposed to spin the wheel as well as handle the wagers and payouts. The game got its name due to the various types of roulette games found in the world today and this will include the American roulette and the French roulette. In European roulette wheel games the wheels are made up of 37 slots that include 36 number slots as well as a single zero slot. The difference between the European and American roulettes is that in American roulette games the zero slots are two thereby making the total amount of slots to be 38. French roulette wheels also have 37 slots like the European roulettes.
How to Play with the European Roulette Wheel
The game requires players to buy coloured chips and here all players should have their own unique colours to avoid misunderstandings. These coloured chips are the ones the ones that will be used in betting throughout the game and should be exchanged with cash chips at the end of a game if you have won. Cash casino chips are special game chips that have the value amount on them. There are several denominations of these chips and they also come in different colours. The chips are supposed to be taken to the casino cash-desk where players will be able to obtain actual cash money in exchange. Players are supposed to place bets on a number or a combination of numbers inside or outside the table layout. After all the players have placed their bets, the dealer is supposed to launch the ball start the spin. The ball will take a few seconds going round the table layout usually in the opposite direction to the spinning wheel and this is when the dealer is supposed to close all betting where player are no longer allowed to make any more bets or change their previous bets. The dealer waits until the wheel comes to a complete stand still and identifies the exact number or numbers the ball has stopped at where he/she is supposed to place a dolly on the winning number and then clears all the losing bets. The winning bets should be paid at this point and the players can agree if they are going to continue by placing new bets. The winners of this game will be the players that had bet on a specific number or around that specific number that has just come up. A player who had also placed their bets on the outside area of the table layout is also a winner if the number they placed their bet on is represented.
