No doubt, that the roulette is the most popular and exciting casino game. The casino table with the wheel is always placed in the center of the casino establishment and it gathers a great amount of people around itself. The term "roulette" in the translation from French language means the "small wheel". At first there were 36 compartments on the roulette wheel. But the new strategies and playing techniques were invented and there appeared two main roulette variations:
- European Roulette (French Roulette) is the oldest game variation, as the classical roulette considered to be too simple for winning to the wheel was added one more compartment - single zero. So the second name of this game variation is the Single Zero Roulette.
- American Roulette appeared in the USA, where the game popularity was very high and house edge very low. So it was decided to add one more slot - double zero, and the game received one more name - Double Zero Roulette.
