One of the most classic casino games ever played has got to be roulette, but don’t ever believe anyone if they tell you they have worked out a strategy for winning at this game, it is just not possible. The outcome of a game of roulette is completely random, and it likened to games such as keno and bingo, except with a little more style.
The good news is however, that the house edge is less in a game of roulette, and this is improved if you play the European version over the American version of the game. Why, you ask? Well because the American roulette wheel has both a zero and a double zero space, while a European wheel has only one zero space, so there is one less pocket for the ball to drop into.
The calculation of a house edge for roulette is basically a trivial pursuit; however for other casino games this is actually quite necessary. Basically it is the excitement of the game which enthrals gamblers, not calculating how much they can win against the house edge.
You will however find that a whole host of people have written books on strategies for winning roulette strategies. Most of these are to be taken with an absolute pinch of salt. There is no set outcome and the game is not even considered to be a skill game. The only skill really lies with knowing how to place your bet so as to get the bets winning odds. There are so many different betting options available!
