American Roulette

Roulette is a casino and gambling game named after the French word meaning small wheel. In the game a croupier spins the wheel in one direction and then spins the ball in the opposed direction around the circumference of the roulette's wheel. The ball ultimately falls onto the wheel and into one of 37 (in European Roulette) or 38 (in American Roulette) colored and numbered pockets on the wheel (see the image above). The object of the game is to predict which number out of possible 38, in our case, the ball will land on.

The most significant dissimilarity between European Roulette and American Roulette is that the American wheel has a single zero and a double zero (the green pockets). Whereas the European Roulette wheel has only a single zero.

Another difference is that the numbers on the American Roulette wheel are placed in pairs opposite of each other, whereas the numbers on the European wheel are placed in an arbitrary order.

In my opinion the American table is more convenient as the red/black, odd/even are placed right next to each other and the first18/last18 betting spots are placed right next to the single numbers. However, the European single zero roulette table is more attractive in symmetry.
