European Roulette Instructions

Here is the traditional Roulette game that most people outside of the United States are familiar with. European roulette has a couple of significant differences over the American version of the game. The biggest difference is that there is only a 0 and no 00 on the table. This cuts the house advantage in half compared to American roulette.

To get started, click on one of the 4 chip sizes (.25, 1, 5 or 25) to add that amount to your bet. You will see this added to the Amount to Bet Per Click. If you would like to remove one or more chips, click on the chips above Amount to Bet Per Click to remove it from that stack.

Take a look at the picture on the right. It shows a bet being placed on 6 numbers at the same time. My mouse cursor is directly where the comment box is pointing. You can bet on multiple numbers by placing chips on the lines between numbers.

Bets can also be placed on groups of numbers by placing chips on one of the 2:1 or 1:1 bets. There is also a second oval track with numbers on it. This is called the Announce Bets. I will explain these bets below.

Once you have placed your bets on the roulette table, click the Spin button to initiate the ball being spun around the cylinder. Once the ball lands, any winnings will be returned and any losing bets will be removed from the table. You will have the option to Repeat your previous bet if you don't want to redo it every time.

European Roulette Betting

Here are the basic bets on the European Roulette table and the payouts for each:

  • Single Number Bet - 35 to 1 payout; this bet is placed in the middle of the number.
  • Two Number Bets - 17 to 1 payout; this bet is placed on the line between two numbers.
  • Three Number Bets - 11 to 1 payout; this bet is placed on the outside line of a column of 3 numbers.
  • Four Number Bets - 8 to 1 payout; this bet is placed where the four corners of the numbers meet.
  • Six Number Bets - 5 to 1 payout; this bet is placed on the outside line where the 2 columns meet.
  • Twelve Number Bets - 2 to 1 payout; bet can be placed on a 2 to 1 Rows or 1st 12, 2nd 12 and 3rd 12.
  • Eighteen Number Bets - 1 to 1 payout; bet can be placed on Red/Black, Odd/Even or 1-18/19-36.

Announce Betting

european-roulette-announce-bet These bets are placed on the Oval track that is next to the normal roulette table. If you hover on a number in this track, you will see 5 numbers light up on the roulette table.

The Announce Bet area is set up exactly the same as the numbers are on the roulette wheel. When you place this type of Announce Bet, you will actually be placing 5 single number bets on the roulette table. These 5 number include the number you click on and the two numbers immediately to the left and right on the roulette table. In this way, you are betting on a 5 number slice of the roulette table.

There are also three more betting areas in the center of the Announce betting area: Voisins du Zero (neighbors of zero), Tiers du Cylindre (third of the cylinder) and Orphans (numbers not in Voisins du Zero or Tiers du Cylindre). Each of these bets are unique because they place several bets on the roulette table; most bets cover 2 numbers, but some bets cover 1, 3 or 4 numbers as well.

Voisins du Zero - 7 bets will be made on the table. This will cover 17 numbers on the table - from the 22 at the top of the Announce table around past 0 and stopping at the 25 near the bottom of the Announce table. These bets cover the following numbers: One bet made on 0, 2 and 3; one bet made on 4 and 7; one bet made on 12 and 15; one bet made on 18 and 21; one bet made on 19 and 22; one bet made on 25, 26, 28 and 29; one bet made on 32 and 35.

Tiers du Cylindre - 6 bets will be made on the roulette table. This will cover 12 numbers on the table - from 33 on the Announce table down to 27. These bets cover the following numbers: One bet made on 5 and 8; one bet made on 10 and 11; one bet made on 13 and 16; one bet made on 23 and 24; one bet made on 27 and 30; one bet made on 33 and 36.

Orphans - 5 bets will be made on the roulette table. This will cover the remaining 8 numbers. These bets will cover the following numbers: One bet made on 1; one bet made on 6 and 9; one bet made on 14 and 17; one bet made on 17 and 20; one bet made on 31 and 34.
