The earliest form of roulette was devised by a Frenchman called Blaise Pascal in the seventeenth century. It is widely believed that the game of roulette is a combination of English wheel games and Italian board games.

roulette variants

Today, the three most popular online roulette variants are American Roulette, European Roulette and French Roulette. That said, some online gaming software developers have over the years rolled out several new variants.

Here is a brief overview of American, European and French Roulette games:

European Roulette – Arguably the most popular form of roulette, European Roulette wheel only has a single zero, which makes it more player friendly that American Roulette. European Roulette also has a feature which allows players to take back half their bets if they lose.

American Roulette – American Roulette boasts a zero and a double zero in addition to the regular number range of 1 to 36. This increases its house edge, which means it is slightly less in the player’s favor, and thus not quite as popular as more traditional European Roulette.

French Roulette – Playing French Roulette is a nice way to learn French. It is pretty much identical to European Roulette except that all writing on the table is in French. This type of roulette also has a few extra betting options to make it that much more interesting.

The above-mentioned roulette variants are based on similar rules. Players must bet on either numbers, colors, or number combinations. Then the wheel and little white ball are spun in opposite directions. If the ball lands on the number, color, or combination they bet on, they will be paid out accordingly.

Playing online roulette game is great because they feature brilliant graphics and realistic sound effects and animations, making players feel almost as if they are playing for real.
