What Is European Roulette And How To Play It


If you love casino games, then you must have heard of Roulette. Roulette is a game of luck or as many people like to call it 'the wheel of luck'.

The first game of Roulette was played back in the late 1700s in Paris. The game at first was popular among the European casinos, but later its popularity spread across the globe.

Nowadays, you can find Roulette wheel tables in almost every casino. The game has many different variations, among which the European Roulette game is the most popular.

Most of the Roulette players prefer European Roulette over other variations since the European Roulette wheel gives people a better chance to win, 2.63% more chances to be exact.

The European Roulette game is the most common roulette game. You can play European Roulette online or inland.

General European Roulette Rules:

The European Roulette rules are the most common and are used in many countries. The European roulette wheel has 37 pockets with numbers ranging from 1-36.

These 37 pockets are colored in red and black alternatively. There is one pocket with the number 0 in it, colored green. The main goal of the player is to predict where the ball will drop after the spinning wheel stops moving.

Usually, 4 casino personnel stand behind the wheel table in European roulette games.

Among them, there are two croupiers or dealers. Their main task is to manage all the bets and spin the wheel.

The other two are known as table-end (bout de table) and game supervisor (chef de partie). They overview the whole game to make sure the game is fair.

Usually, 1 to 8 players can play the European Roulette together. The game begins when the dealer says 'Place your bets' or 'Faitesvosjeux'. The players can place bets as long as the dealer is not calling off the bets.

When the spinning wheel slows down a little, the dealer says 'No more bets' or 'Rien ne vaplu', and you can no longer place any more bets, and all the bets placed afterward will be considered invalid.

One of the main functions of the dealers is to call out the winning number of the spinning wheel. Those who guess the number correctly win all the bets.

Like every other variety of Roulette games, there are 2 specific rules exclusive to the European Roulette and works only at the European Roulette wheel table.

1) La Partage:

If you have placed an even odds bet, then you can get half of your money back when the ball falls into the 0 numbered pocket. Even odds bets are High or Low, Red or Black, and Even or Odd bets.

2) En Prison:

In this rule, players can get a second chance by letting their bets stay on the table waiting for the next spin.

Types Of European Roulette Bets:

Inside bets and outside bets are two major types of bets mostly used in European Roulette games.

All the bets are placed inside the big table of the spinning wheel. Let's take a look at all the different betting options.

Tips To Increase The Winning Chance In European Roulette:

If you are a novice, just like many other players, you may follow one of these strategies below to have a better chance of winning. These tricks and tips cannot guarantee a win but rather increase your chances by 50-50.

1. Martingale:

It's one of the common European strategies players love to use often. Here, you place double of your bet each time you lose.

It's one of the common European strategies players love to use often. Here, you place double of your bet each time you lose.

2. Paroli:

It's the same as martingale. But here, you double your bets when you win and not when you lose. If you are a beginner, you probably should avoid this strategy.

3. D'Alembert:

Here, you place your bets and then add or remove one chip based on whether you lose or win.

It has very low risk and low reward as well. This is one of the best strategies to use when just a beginner.

4. Fibonacci:

This strategy is also similar to D'Alembert and only works on outside bets. Each time you lose, you sum up the amount of your previous bet and add them up in your next bet.

For instance, if you placed a bet in the first spin, let's just say SGD 2, then in the next spin, you need to place a bet of 1+2 = SGD 3.

And after that, in the next spin, the bet will increase to SGD 5 since the total sum of your previous two bets is (3+2=5). The system will reset once you win.

5. Constant Bet:

If you want a simple strategy not for the win but for learning the game, this one is the perfect strategy just for that.

With this strategy, you can sit at the table for a longer time. And you don't need to add or remove any chips to do that.

Place the same bet which you have placed on the very first spin over and over again.

Even if you win one round, you don't need to put the winning chips along with your previous bet. And if your luck is with you may win for a big time.


These are all the tricks and tips you can use to increase your chances of winning the European Roulette. Roulette is the most popular and easiest casino game to play.

However, European Roulette, or any other roulette game for that matter, is a game purely based on your luck and money.

So if you do not remain careful when placing your bets, you may lose all your money.

These are all the things you need to know before you start playing European Roulette. Hope you enjoy reading this article.
