Unlike a great diversity of blackjack or slot machines variations, having been developed in the world, there're differentiated only 2 major roulette variations, which are:

European Roulette (“Single-zero” Roulette)

European roulette is the oldest variation in roulette history, which was created in France in the 17th century. The main peculiarities of this game's modification are the following:

1.The wheel comprises only one "zero".

2.A special bet is offered to the players:

Trio (also known as Voisins du Zero or Neighbours of Zero) is a bet on the 0, 1 and 2; or 0, 2, and 3 at the same time. The chips should be put on the intersection between the 3 numbers.

Choosing the Best

According to the vast majority of analysts, American Roulette is considered far less beneficial for the players, as the presence of "00" increases the house edge from 2,63% (in European variation of the game) up to 5,26%. This has probably become the reason, why this "2-zero" alternation, is much more spread in Las Vegas casinos, for instance.

Nevertheless, online casinos, which started developing in the end of the 20th century, and faced unbelievable growth of their popularity within the current decade, seem to be considerably friendlier to their clients, by offering European Roulette as well. At the same time, such a situation might be also influenced by incredible competition among internet gambling sites, which don't have any other variant, except for meeting the clients' demands, as far as it's possible. Anyway, no matter, what influences such a state of things, people get what they want, and it's wonderful.
