American Roulette is a popular gambling game played in casinos all around the world. It derives its name from the fact that this variant of Roulette was created in the United States of America.
American Roulette is not much different from the European or French counterpart. However, there is a major difference that separates the two. American Roulette has 38 spots on the wheel, whereas the European one has 37. In the American variant, the wheel has 18 reds, 18 blacks and two greens (the 0 and 00).
Do whatever floats your boat. However, we are here to give you the facts. And the fact is this. American Roulette’s chances are lower than in French Roulette, precisely because there is an extra green field on the American wheel. For this reason, the house advantage is a bit higher in American Roulette.
Well, Roulette isn’t really a skill-based game. It is more of a luck based game. However, there are a few strategies that improve the player’s chances of making more cash.
The most popular strategy in the world of Roulette right now is the Martingale strategy.
The Martingale strategy has 3 different variants. However, the variant that is the most popular and often-used is the classic strategy. This involves starting with a certain bet amount, and then doubling that bet every time you lose. The goal here is to eventually make back the cash that you’ve lost, and also make some extra profit.
The two other variants on the Martingale Strategy are the Grand and the Reverse Martingale strategy. The Grand Strategy is exactly the same as the Martingale strategy, except instead of doubling your bet on a loss, you triple them. The Reverse strategy involves halving your bet, instead of doubling it.
Not only are these strategies popular in American Roulette, they can be used in French Roulette, and pretty much any other gambling games. They are quite popular in Baccarat, Blackjack, Poker, etc.
We can’t say what the safest bet in American Roulette is. However, we will say this. It has been shown that most often, gamblers will place a bet on the number 17. Why this is, we can’t say. However, a fun fact is that the number is actually connected to quite a few legendary wins in roulette.
Obviously, there is an equal amount of red and black fields. In terms of American Roulette, the fields to avoid betting on are the green ones. However, high-stake bettors still place wagers on these fields, as the payout when winning a wager on a 0 or 00 is much greater than a payout when wagering on red and black.
