How American Roulette Works

American Roulette is played on an American roulette wheel that has 36 number sections and two zero sections (zero and double zero). This is different from European and French wheels, which only have one zero. The zeros are green, and the other sections are black and red alternately and numbered 1 to 36. The purpose of the game is to place bets covering one or more numbers on the wheel. These include individual numbers, adjacent numbers, groups of numbers, and broader categories. The wheel will spin in one direction, and a ball will roll on a track in the opposite direction. The winning number and colour are determined by the section in which the ball lands. The payouts depend on the type of bet placed and the payout ratio, with different bets offering different odds.

  • The best American roulette strategy to use depends on the player’s experience, bankroll, and appetite for risk.
  • The Martingale betting system, for instance, involves doubling your bet size after each loss. When you win, you set the stake back to the initial amount.
  • The Parlay betting system rewards winning streaks by doubling the stake on even money bets when you win and resetting when you lose.
  • To use the D’Alembert system, pick a betting unit based on your bankroll (e.g., 1% could equal one unit), then start with a bet of five units. Subtract one unit if you win and add one unit if you lose.
  • Something to avoid is making contradictory bets. These are bets that cancel each other out and have no net gain or loss. For example, placing bets on red and black numbers at the same time is a contradictory bet.
