Watching the red and black colours of a roulette wheel seems mesmerizing. The game is itself is mysterious where placing fewer bets can let you make more money. The rush that we feel when it is spun and till the ball lands at one number, is exhilarating. But did you know that different variations of roulette are played worldwide? If you didn’t know that, we have a list here for you.
It is the most popular form of roulette because the probability of House Edge is as low as 2.7%. The European wheel only has a single zero. If the ball lands on zero, the casino has its cut.
The Vegas variation of the game is true to the famous adage; the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward. The roulette wheel in this variation has zero and double zero increasing House Edge to 5.26%. the numbers are also sequenced differently and because of this tweak, whoever wins in this variation was big.
It is similar to the European counterpart having a single zero on the wheel. The system of placing bets is the same. However, there are insurance bets of En Prison and La Partage. If you place a bet on these, you lose only half the amount placed as a bet if the ball lands on zero.
Online Roulette sites widely use this version. It is for players who do not play roulette because of a large plethora of numbers. They feel placing bets on large numbers is daunting. Mini roulette comes to their rescue. It only has 13 slots and offers insurance of wager through the French version ‘La Partage’. The probability of winning here become fairly high.
The variation is most exciting as ten balls are thrown into the spinning roulette wheel. Instead of placing simple bets with just numbers. Gamblers place bets on a combination of colours, numbers or combinations of both colours and numbers. They are played in European style and the only thing to understand is choosing the combination that wins.
Multi Wheel Roulette
Like multi-ball roulette, this variation has multi wheels. This machine may come with up to eight wheels spinning at the same time or one after the other with either a single or multiple balls waiting to land on the winning number. The bets are placed according to the European variation.
Live roulette operates just like another online roulette. The only difference is that you place bets online and a live croupier spins the wheel someplace else. You may compare it with playing roulette remotely. Unlike an online roulette machine that generates a number through RNG, here the number will be obtained from a real roulette wheel.
