The origin of roulette can be traced back to France although the game is also inspired by games from England and Italy. Roulette was actually an interesting mixture of these different games and soon became extremely popular among the people. American roulette is a modified version of this ancient French roulette.

Just like the wheel in American roulette, the early French roulette wheels had a slot for double zero along with the single zero slot which meant that it gave more advantage to the banks. It was only after 1843 that roulette wheel with only single zero slot was developed. It was done to give competition to the German casinos by lowering the house edge and giving the players an advantage. This kind of roulette is now known as European live roulette and is the most popular form of roulette.

Though American roulette is widespread in America and can be found in many casinos, European roulette wheels are also extremely popular. Originally the roulette wheel in the American version only consisted of twenty-eight numbers along with the double zero and zero slots. It was also called the American Eagle. The American roulette reached its peak during the gold rush in California.

In the modern American roulette wheel the numbers 1 to 36 are present along with the two slots for zero and double zero. The house advantage in American roulette is 5.26 percent as compared to the 2.7 percent house advantage in European live roulette. Though there are some other minor differences like the color of the chip and use of the chip rake, these differences does not influence the way the game is played.

Just like in European roulette, the American roulette game also involves a betting table and the roulette wheel. The players can place several different types of bets - like betting on any of the numbers or a combination of several numbers, bet on the color of the slots or place bets on specific columns or lines of numbers. The more experienced players often place combination bets. After the betting is over, the dealer spins the wheel and introduces the small ball in it. Most of the casinos have a minimum and maximum limit on the betting amount.

In the present day with the rise of the online casinos, it has become extremely easy to play the game. It allows you to play your very own favorite version of roulette from the comforts of your home whenever you want to.
