Roulette is a rather old game that has an avid following among casino goers. There is something about that clicking sound the wheel makes as it is spinning along with a small metal ball going in the opposite direction. It has been around since the 18th century and began in France. With that in mind, the focus of this article is how to win European roulette.

The first thing you need to take note of is which roulette layout you have in front of you. There is the American roulette layout that has two sets of zeroes (a single zero and a double zero) and numbers one to thirty six (1 to 36). The numbers are arranged as follows: 0, 28, 9, 26, 30, 11, 7, 20, 32, 17, 5, 22, 34, 15, 3, 24, 36, 13, 1, 00, 27, 10, 25, 29, 12, 8, 19, 31, 18, 6, 21, 33, 16, 4, 23, 35, 14, and 2. Then, there is the European roulette layout that has the single zero (0) and numbers one to thirty six (1 to 36). The numbers are arranged as follows: 0, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2, 25, 17, 34, 6, 27, 13, 36, 11, 30, 8, 23, 10, 5, 24, 16, 33, 1, 20, 14, 31, 9, 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, and 26. The two sets of zeroes in the American layout give the house a 5.26 percent edge over the players. However, the European layout’s single zero gives the house a lower edge, 2.63 percent, to be exact. So, obviously you have a better chance of winning with the European layout.

Now that you can differentiate one layout from the other and know that your odds at winning have improved with the European layout, you can go even further and go with even money bets. These are bets where you can receive 1:1 payouts. Examples of even money bets are putting your chips on “1-18”, “Even”, “Red”, “Black”, “Odd”, or “19-36”. Your chances of hitting even money bets are at about 45 percent.

Once you know how to win European roulette, you can join a roulette game with more confidence and with the knowledge on how you can increase your chances of winning. Never lose sight of the thought that playing European roulette should not just be a way for you to earn “easy money” but a way for you to enjoy yourself while having a chance at making some “easy money”. Winning is great but having fun while winning is even much better.
