European Roulette

  • In the European Roulette table, the wheels contain 37 pockets. 1 to 36 are numbered and there is only one 0 pocket. The numbers face the inside of the Roulette wheel,  unlike the American version.

  • The European Roulette has 18 black and 18 red pockets similar to the USA version. The odd numbers are in the red pocket and even numbers are in the black pockets.
  • The 36 numbers form two arcs. The first arc is to the right of the zero pocket and the second one to the left. In the right you have 2, 4, 6,8,10,11,13,15, and 17 in the black pocket and 19,21,23,25,27,30,34 and 36 in the red pocket.

  • In this version the player is allowed to have French bets like voisins du zero that almost covers the entire wheel. Thus, this is how European Roulette is different from American Roulette.

The French Roulette

  • The Roulette wheel of the French version is similar to that of the European Roulette version. The wheel head in the French version has 37 pockets. In which the black and red pockets follow one another.
  • The way the number head is arranged in the game is different from that of the other games and it is called the French number sequence. Here the number grid lies horizontally.
  • There are outside bets which are featured on both sides of the number grids.  The top part of the bet includes black, even and high and the bottom we have red, odd and low which is similar to that of the American and European version.

Hybrid version

  • There is also another version of the game of Roulette table known as the hybrid version. This version is most common in the United Kingdom but also available in other countries.

  • The player has an advantage of 2.75% as the French Roulette doesn’t have a 00 pocket.


In the game of the online Roulette the payout depends upon the aiming of the ball. If the player launches the ball with full attention then he might stand a chance to win. The player gets the payoffs when the bet is from 35 to 1 with any single number when you get 0, 00 during 17 to 1, the player also gets payoffs when he/she reaches any two adjoining numbers either vertically or horizontally. Also, the player can win the payoff if they bet on any number from 11 to 1.
