The roulette game has 2 types of tables, the American Roulette Table and the European Roulette Table. Although the table is different, the game is still the same. The mechanisms, rules and points are still the same. The only thing that is different between the 2 would be the numbers that are seen on the table. Plus the numbers on their wheel would be different from each other. People say that it is easier to win on the European style compared to American style but those 2 are both gambling so both of them can either make you lose money or win money.
If you look at the dictionary, the word 'roulette' is French for small wheel. So originally, the roulettes that were played before were called "French roulette" because that is where it came from but nowdays, the roulettes that you would see are the European and the American roulettes. Both games are the same except the zeros on the table. American roulette tables have 2 zero positions (0, 00) while European roulette tables only has 1 zero position which is 0. On the wheel, the sequence on the number would be different from each other. If you look at the table, the format of the old French roulette is wider. Individual colored chips are placed on the table on the number you are betting on if the table is American and European.
For the French roulette, cash chips are used. They did not use individual colored chips. If someone wins or someone loses, the dealer would be the one to get the chips from the table using a stick or some other lengthy implement. The dealer would also be the one to give the wins to the lucky player with the lucky bet. The game would be faster this way. This is applicable to both European and American roulettes.
The roulette game is one of the most popular games in the casino. Many people play this game even if the chance of players losing is big. Maybe, they just really want to take their chances in winning big amounts of money, or more probably, they just enjoy the game itself and do not really mind the risk of losing money. The possibility of being lucky enough to win big is just icing on the cake. Whether you pick an American roulette table or a European roulette table, just give your bet and see if today is your lucky day.
