The sequence of Roulette wheel numbers that you find in a game of Roulette may vary from one game to another. Typically, you have two generic Roulette wheels which are differentiated by the number of zeros present. With an American style Roulette wheel, you usually have two zeros (i.e. 0 and 00).
On the other hand, with the European Roulette wheel, there is a single zero that is normally available. When you look at an American style Roulette wheel, you will notice two green coloured pockets which are numbered “0” and “00” respectively. The American Roulette game has a total of 38 pockets with numbers running from 1 through to 36 and then including the double zero numbers to make 38.
However, with the European Roulette version, the Roulette wheel numbers are a total of 37. The numbers are from 1 to 36 and then includes the single zero number to make 37 numbers and pockets. The odds are more favourable to a player when playing the European Roulette rather than the American Roulette game due largely to the presence of just a single zero. The house edge for the former is 2.70% while for the latter Roulette game is 5.26%.
Roulette Wheel Numbers Layout
It must be mentioned that what makes a game of Roulette quite unique is the fact that the numbers on the wheel are not arranged in a standard sequential order. This way players are dissuaded from concluding that there is a direct link that exists between the numbers are their corresponding pockets.
The Roulette wheel numbers may be coloured black or red which is also done to differentiate a group of numbers such as the even and odd numbers. Even numbers do not lie side by side same also with odd numbers. The numbers on the Roulette wheel take on a deliberately designed layout that ensures that the even and odd numbers are evenly spread right around the wheel. This is done to give the game that fascinating and exciting edge.
Random Outcomes Is What Makes The Roulette Game Unique
While there may be a number of strategies that have been adopted by Roulette players throughout the years such as the use of Martingale and D’Alembert betting systems. The truth of the matter is there is actually no way to predict the outcome of a Roulette game. You could have the ball landing on a sequence of odd Roulette wheel numbers only to then suddenly land on an even number and vice-versa. The randomness of outcomes is what makes this game such a gamble. The result of a previous round has no influence whatsoever on a subsequent round, so trying to predict an outcome is virtually impossible.
Finally, predicting which Roulette wheel numbers the ball will land on is likened to guessing a complete sequence of lottery numbers. In a Roulette game, your odds never change. With every fresh round, your odds are similar, and this does not matter if you have been on a ten-round losing streak or a three-round winning streak. In a European Roulette game, the odds of the ball landing on your chosen number remains 1 to 37 at all times. This is also true with the American Roulette version with a probability of 1 to 38.
