The most popular types of roulette games today are three: French, American and American from one zero. The main feature that differentiates the French and American is the number of numbers that make up the roulette cylinder of each game. In the case of the French, also known as European, the cylinder is composed of numbers from 1 to 36 and 0. The American includes a number, in addition to the numbers from 1 to 36 and zero 0 ("00" ), double zero ("00"). The inclusion of double zero ("00") makes the American version of the game less favorable for the player. The game of the American Roulette of a zero is a hybrid between the French and the American, it uses the cylinder of the French and the American rug.
The French Roulette cylinder contains 37 numbers, numbers from 1 to 36 and zero ('0'). It is played sitting with flat value chips (you can also play with the "normal" value chips) that can also be used in the rest of the casino tables. The areas to place bets on simple luck (red / black, even / odd, pass / miss) are on both sides of the central part of the cloth where the numbers are located. Three croupiers are necessary to direct and organize the game. The table is large, which makes it necessary for croupiers to help themselves with rakes to perform their functions.
The American Roulette cylinder contains 38 numbers, numbers from 1 to 36, zero ('0') and double zero ('00'). In this case, you play standing. The distribution of the numbers along the cylinder is different from the distribution of the numbers in the cylinder of the French. The cloth for placing bets is only accessible by the players on one side, the other side of the cloth is occupied by the dealer. The table of the American Roulette is smaller than the table of the French, in this game there is only one dealer directing the game. It is played with color chips and value tokens.
American Roulette with a zero
The American Roulette of a zero is a mixture of the game of French Roulette and the game of American Roulette. This game uses the French Roulette cylinder, that is, 37 numbers, numbered from 1 to 36 and zero ('0'). The cloth used is the same as that used in American Roulette. In this case, you play on your feet and there is only one dealer. You can play with value chips but usually for active players they are assigned colored chips.
