How to play European Roulette

European Roulette is a simple game to master. There is a small but very important difference between European Roulette and the classic American version and that is the fact that are only 37 chambers in the Roulette wheel instead of 38 into which the ball can fall. The small change of having only a single zero on the wheel and not a double zero as well cuts the house's edge in half and increases your chance of winning.

Here are the basics you'll need to learn before attempting to win big on this popular casino game.

Step 1 – Choose You Favourite

European Roulette is essentially a guessing game. Your first step towards succeeding at playing this classic game is picking your favorite number, color or even area on the table. It's that simple.

Step 2 - Place your bets

Placing a bet when playing European Roulette can be as simple or as complicated as you choose for it to be. There are many different combinations for you to choose from when placing a bet. There are inside bets or bets placed within the numbered area of the grid and outside bets, these are bets placed outside the framework of the grid.

These are the different inside bets you can make:

Straight up - Place your bet on a single number.

Split - Place your bet on two numbers and set your chip on the dividing line.

Street - Bet on any three numbers in a row by placing your chip on the outside of the line at the start of the row.

Corner - Bet on a block of four numbers by placing your chip on the intersecting lines between your chosen numbers.

Four - Bet on numbers 0, 1, 2 and 3.

Line - Bet on 6 numbers of 2 adjacent rows by placing your chip on the line between the two rows.

Or choose from these outside bets:

Column - Bet on one of the three vertical columns by placing your chip at the bottom of the column.

Dozen - Bet on 12 numbers in the low, middle or high grouping. Place your chip on one of the following defined areas on the board: First 12, Second 12 or Third 12.

Even money - Bet on 18 numbers by placing your chip on one of the following squares: Even, Odd, Red, Black, 1-18 or 19-36.

Step 3 - Spin!

Now it's up to the luck of the spin or the fate of the gods. You've placed your bets and all you can do is hold thumbs and hope for the best. Good luck!
