Roulette variations

Get the best house edge with these popular roulette variations: play European if you can!

There are four main roulette variants that are common across the gambling world. However, in online casinos you occasionally encounter left-field alternatives such as ‘multi-wheel roulette,’ ‘pinball roulette’ and ‘mini roulette’.

The variants below are the only roulette games legally recognised by all casinos, on and off-line.

European roulette

This game is based on the earliest incarnation of roulette and features 36 numbered pockets and one ‘0’. The house edge in European roulette is 2.7%.

French roulette

French roulette is identical to European roulette with the exception of the ‘called bet’ rule, in which the dealer acknowledges accepted bets by ‘calling’ them back to the player. You are also allowed to place ‘last number bets’ (see below). The house edge is 2.7%.

American roulette

American roulette features a table with one additional ‘00’ slot. While this increases the pay-out on inside bets, it doubles the house edge, meaning you are likely to give away twice as much money on average compared to French and European roulette. The house edge is 5.26%.
