Generally speaking, there are only two real versions of roulette – the US version and the European version. That being said, over the years there have been other versions of the game that are also loosely based on it that are often considered to be different versions of roulette.
When it comes to the US and European versions of roulette, the difference between them is simple: The US version has the ‘double zero’ along with the normal ‘zero’ while the European version only has the normal ‘zero’. Needless to say this changes the odds involved a little bit, but it isn’t drastic and a skilled roulette player can quite easily adapt (though they may prefer to stick to the version that they know best).
On the other hand, some of the other versions of roulette that aren’t really official tend to differ more greatly. In some cases, games are being called roulette simply because they have a spinning wheel, while nothing else about the game actually resembles roulette at all!
If you’re confronted by a version of roulette that looks completely unfamiliar, it is important to first identify exactly what the objective is. Next you’ll want to look at how the game is played, what sort of odds are involved, what your different options are in terms of the bet that you can place, and so on.
Hopefully answering these questions will give you an inkling of what that particular ‘version’ of roulette is all about.
Depending on the casino that you frequent you may or may not find such variations of roulette. Try checking out casino online choices that have the sort of roulette that you enjoy best – rather than trying to learn a new game that you’re completely unfamiliar with and will probably need to practice a bit before you get the hang of it.
