Play American Roulette Online at Casino.com South Africa
As the game made its way to America, the originally French version evolved into a fun, different kind of Roulette Online. Now, an added Double Zero (00) on the wheel increases the opportunity for players like you to win money on Online Casino South Africa!
What makes American Roulette different than traditional Roulette?
Also known as Double Zero Roulette, American Roulette adds a huge opportunity for you to win. The Double Zero adds an extra option for betting in the beginning of the game. This option of the Double Zero on the wheel is not an option in European Roulette, nor French Roulette. Statistically, American Roulette may seem like tougher odds, since the House advantage increases from 2.7% to 3.5% as it crosses the Atlantic. Do not be deterred by these statistics though. Those daring enough to play and win, will lead to higher prizes and larger amounts of money. Calling all professional Roulette players: this is the game for you!

Similar to the European versions of Roulette, bets are placed on single numbers, color, even or odd, rows, corners and combinations. The anticipation when the wheel is spun of where the little white ball will land is the same across the board. The only difference on the wheel is the inclusion of the 00.

Recently, Casino.com ZA decided to remove American Roulette from our extensive casino game library. Whilst it wasn’t an easy decision, it was done in the best interest of our players.
There are still many different online Roulette variations available at Casino.com ZA that use the European and French Roulette wheel. These games are more popular around the world for a variety of reasons. The biggest advantage these games have over the American game is the wheel consists of 36 pockets, with a single zero, instead of the 37 pockets and double-zero found on the American wheel. While it may not seem like a big difference, the extra zero pocket significantly changes the odds in the casino favour.
European and French Roulette variants are more popular with South African players for many reasons. For starters, they give better odds for the players, which not only means increased odds of winning but increasing the size of your bankroll as well. Most of the popular Roulette strategies are based on even money bets, and the second zero in the American game destroys those odds.
There are also some side bets, like ‘La Partage,’ which lowers the House edge even more since it pays out half the bet when the ball lands in the 0 pocket, and ‘En Prison’ which allows a player to recoup a loss on the spin after a 0. These options are common in French and European Roulette and non-existent in the American Roulette variant.
