If you’re a fan of European Roulette but want to try something a little bit different, why not take a few spins on American Roulette, which is the same classic game albeit with two zero spaces. The game they play on the other side of the Atlantic features exactly the same betting mechanics as its continental counterpart, but provides extra betting opportunities thanks to its additional space. The console, meanwhile, features a sleek and sophisticated casino feel, with all the information you need to know confined to one screen for unparalleled user-friendliness and player accessibility.
American Roulette plays in exactly the same way as its European cousin in that players are simply required to wager on which section of the wheel they think the roulette ball will stop in each spin. Betting options are displayed on the table in front of you, with players able to wager on the colour of the space that the ball comes to rest on, the section of the wheel it will be in and even the exact number, with each outcome featuring different odds based on the likelihood of it happening.
As mentioned above, the great thing about American Roulette is that all of your betting options are clearly displayed on a single screen, making it incredibly easy to get started. Seven chips are set out in front of you in denominations ranging from £0.01 to £25.00 and all players have to do is select the chip value that they wish to place and click the section of the board displaying the outcome they want to bet on. Multiple chips can be added to the same section and holding shift while clicking will remove your previous bet. Table stakes range from a minimum bet of £0.10 to a maximum of £25.00, with players merely needing to hit the spin button when they’re ready to play.
As a game of pure chance, there’s no real strategy to American Roulette other than to manage your bankroll carefully. Remember that while the double zero space does give you something extra to bet on, it does also add another section to the reel, further lengthening the odds when it comes to betting on specific numbers. As such, you’ll want to make bets that cover as many outcomes as possible without decimating your bankroll and slowly increase your bet size if you’re successful.
While choosing between American and European Roulette essentially boils down to a matter of taste, the fact remains that Playtech have done a sterling job with both versions of the game. The company’s American Roulette console is a highly-polished title that is simple enough to pick up and play but also features atmosphere graphics and sounds to really pull you into the casino experience.
