The game of roulette was invented in France. In fact, the name “roulette” is French for “little wheel”. The original French roulette wheel had 37 pockets: a “0” pocket and the numbers 1 through 36.
The natural American inclination is to super-size whatever they can, to make everything bigger and bolder and splashier. So when roulette arrived to America, the Americans naturally figured that if a roulette wheel with 37 pockets is good, then a roulette wheel with 38 pockets will be even better. And so they added the 38th pocket to the roulette wheel: the famous American double-zero.
As in any roulette game, you start playing American Roulette online by placing your bets. All of the standard roulette bets — the inside bets and the outside bets — are available in the American Roulette game. But there are also some special roulette bets
that are available only in American Roulette.
In online American Roulette, you can bet on the single zero or the double zero. Either bet will pay out 35 to 1 if you win. Or you can place a split bet on both the single zero and the double zero; if either one hits, you win a 17-to-1 payout. You can also place a 5-number bet on 0-00-1-2-3 that will pay out at 6 to 1. And of course, whenever you play roulette online
you can always bet on the red numbers or the black numbers.
Mathematically speaking, the odds of winning at American Roulette are slightly lower than at other online roulette games. But there are some pleasures in life that cannot be measured mathematically. The double zero of the American Roulette wheel adds something magical — something almost mystical — to the online roulette game that is beyond mathematical computation.
