European Roulette Table Layout

Unlike the American roulette wheel, the European wheel has 37 numbers and only one zero. So there’s one green pocket marked 0.

The sequence of the numbers on the European roulette wheel also differs from the American wheel. This is the number sequence on the European roulette wheel:

0, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2, 25, 17, 34, 6, 27, 13, 36, 11, 30, 8, 23, 10, 5, 24, 16, 33, 1, 20, 14, 31, 9, 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, 26.

Both the European and American roulette tables feature colored chips. The roulette dealer collects the losing chips after the ball has landed in a pocket.

Most favorable winning chances

Frenchman Blaise Pascal is widely considered to be the brains behind the game of roulette. Small wheel is the English translation of the French word ‘roulette’. The chip values in both American and European roulette can vary between €0.01 - € 500.

The idea behind roulette is to predict the number on which the ball will land. There are several betting options, including inside bets and outside bets. European roulette is the single-zero version with the most favorable chances of winning.

Stalled in prison

There are several specific rules in European roulette that add to the drama of the game. For example, the ‘la partage’ rule results in you losing 50% of your bet when the roulette ball lands on zero. This rule reduces the house edge to 1.35% and only applies to outside bets. The ‘en prison’ rule comes into force when the ball lands on zero. This rule means that your stake is stalled, and will be returned without any winnings if the roulette ball lands on your number after the following spin.
