Often when i read something about Roulette, it’s referred to as French Roulette. I’ve also seen the term European Roulette. Is there a difference?

I can explain. French and European Roulette are the same thing, but there is also AMerican Roulette.
In American Roulette, there is an extra slot on the wheel: the “00”. The double-zero is the same bank winner as the single zero, so American casinos simply have a higher house edge.
Why the AMericans accept to play Roulette with worse winning expectations than in Europe is not known.

Good explanation Merlin. Might want to add that the 00 is represented next to the 0 on the betting field, so you can actually bet on 00 as well.

There is no good reason for this. It just seems they think it’s ok, because USA, USA…

No reason to p… on AMericans. They basically grow up with this, so many of them don’t even know about European roulette.

French Roulette is like the epitome of all casinos. The beginning of it all.

Agree. You can’t find a classic gambling movie – or james Bond – without some heavy Roueltte betting. CAsino Royale was following the current trend of people playing Texas Hold’em, but that doesn’t really change anything.

Don’t wanna hurt your feelings, but Bond’s game of choice was Baccarat.

Let’s take it a step further. Connery played Baccarat, Craig played Hold’em.
