The secrets of American Roulette

Dimmed lights, green carpet, guaranteed thrills: discover American roulette games on Casino King

Casino King opens the doors to a fascinating world of gaming where American roulette reigns supreme. Let yourself be enchanted by the unique atmosphere of a land-based casino, where dimmed lights, green carpet, and the murmurs of players create an electric ambiance around American roulette.

A journey through time

The history of American roulette dates back to the 18th century, stemming from the well-known European roulette. Its introduction of the double zero increased the house edge, making it unique and more risky. Its expansion in American casinos in the 19th century cemented its global popularity.

The mysterious language of American roulette

The world of American roulette may seem intimidating at first glance, with its specific expressions and its own jargon. But don't worry, this practical guide is here to help you demystify the language of the dealer and familiarize yourself with the key terms of the game.

Here are some expressions you'll often hear when playing American roulette:

  1. Faites vos jeux: It's time to place your chips on the table and make your bets.

  2. Les jeux sont faits: The time allowed for placing bets is over. No more bets are accepted.

  3. Rien ne va plus: The ball is about to be spun. Suspense!

  4. Numéro gagnant: The dealer announces the number on which the ball has landed.

  5. Couleurs: Red or black, bet on the color you think will win.

  6. Pair/Impair: Bet on even or odd numbers.

  7. Manque/Passe: Bet on numbers 1 to 18 (Manque) or 19 to 36 (Passe).

Understanding the rules of American roulette

The objective of American roulette is simple: predict the pocket where the ball will land. The wheel features 38 pockets numbered from 1 to 36, alternating between red and black, with two green pockets: 0 and 00.

Bets and their specifics

Bets in American roulette are divided into two categories:

  • Inside bets: bets on individual numbers or groups of numbers (straight, split, street, corner).

  • Outside bets: bets on sets of numbers (columns, dozens, red/black, even/odd, low/high).

Roulette strategies: myth or reality?

American roulette fascinates you, but how can you optimize your chances? Here's an overview of the most common strategies:

  • The Martingale

The idea is simple: after each loss, double your bet to recover your losses and make a profit. Let's say you bet €1 on a color. If you lose, the next bet is €2, then €4, and so on. The logic is that a win will eventually compensate for all losses.

  • The D'Alembert System

More conservative than the Martingale, this strategy involves increasing your bet by one unit after each loss and decreasing it by one unit after each win. The objective is to find a balance between wins and losses.

  • The Fibonacci Method

Inspired by the mathematical sequence of the same name, this strategy involves betting the amount corresponding to the current position in the sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8...). In case of a loss, you move forward one number in the sequence; in case of a win, you move back two numbers.

Other variants of roulette

American roulette is just the tip of the iceberg! Discover other fascinating versions of this legendary game of chance and explore new sensations:

European Roulette

A refined classic, European roulette is distinguished by its single zero pocket. This variant offers higher chances of winning and attracts strategic players.

French Roulette

Unlike American roulette, which has a double zero (00), French roulette has only one zero (0).

English Roulette

This variant offers increased betting flexibility. Chips do not have a predefined value, allowing players to place them freely on the table, promoting a more personalized approach to the game.
