Play the game by choosing your table limit, selecting a betting amount and the type of bet you want to make and pressing spin.
American roulette is one of the three main variations of roulette available. The main difference that the American variation has to the European or French cariations is the presence of a '00' section on the wheel in addition to the '0' section.
This seemingly insignificant detail has a huge impact on the odds of the game. Where as the house edge in European roulette is considered to be 2.70%, the presence of this '00' section in American roulette increases the house edge to 5.26%.
In this easy-to-use free play version of the game, the player is presented with the American roulette wheel, table and chips. Placing a bet could not be any easier. The players must select the number of chips they wish to bet with from the chips displayed on the screen. They must then move those selected chips onto the area of the betting table that they wish to place the bet on. Once this is done then the player can opt to press the 'Spin' button.
The wheel and ball will start spinning and a window will appear with a close up of where the ball will land to reveal the winning bet. The croupier's voice then confirms the section that the ball landed in and the player is then asked to place their bets again. The player can either place a new range of bets or can simply click on the 'Rebet' button to spin with the previous spin's bets.
This roulette game includes a feature that is sure to be welcomed by players that want to know their stats. If they click on the maximum and minimum bet window then it will display what odds every plausible bet available on the betting table can pay out. This makes things very easy for new players to understand. It also gives veterans players an at-a-glance view of what they could win if their bets come in.
A welcome feature is also the spin history tracker which shows what numbers have come up in previous spins. This gives players that might be using certain strategies to work out if it is worth placing a bet on a certain number based on previous outcomes.
American Roulette online is also available to play for real money, but it is great to have a free play version that gives players the chance to test drive the game before betting with real money.
