What is American roulette?
Roulette has been played for centuries and many consider it be the oldest casino game out there.
Whether you’re online or at a real life casino in Vegas or Atlantic City, it just wouldn’t be the same without roulette.
There are three variations of roulette.
American roulette is one of the most popular ones.
The American version of roulette is played with a wheel which contains numbered pockets.
Those numbers run from 1-36 and are alternately colored red and black.
Roulette also has green pockets.
In American roulette there are two of these.
There is a single zero and a second - 00 - double zero.
Before each game there is a round of betting.
When the timer runs down, the wheel spins.
The dealer releases a white ball.
The wheel comes to rest and the ball will settle in one of those 38 pockets.
Winning bets placed will then be settled.
How to play american roulette
There is a betting area below the wheel.
In online roulette games, this appears digitally at the bottom of the screen.
Before that wheel spins, players stake by clicking on their chosen bet.
Available American Roulette bets include:
● Straight: A bet on a single number between 1 and 36. You can also stake on 0 or 00
● Odd or Even
● Red or Black
● High (Numbers 19 to 36) or Low (1 to 18)
● Split - a bet on an adjacent set of numbers that can appear either horizontally or vertically in the betting area.
● Street - a bet on three numbers in a horizontal line such as 7, 8 and 9
● Corners - also known as squares, a corner is a bet on four numbers that meet in the corner of a betting area.
There is a time limit on bets: Players will see a counter counting down.
When it reaches zero, no more bets will be allowed.
The dealer now spins the wheel and releases the white ball.
We have yet to discover perpetual motion at Unibet so that wheel will stop at some point.
When it does, the ball will be resting in a pocket.
Depending on where it lands, bets will be won or lost.
Those are the basic mechanics of American roulette.
It’s a very simple game but one that’s been entertaining casino players for decades.
There’s also a choice of playing options at Unibet.

Tips for playing American roulette
Now that you know the basics of playing American roulette online, here are five tips that could help you step up your game when you play american roulette on Unibet!
We can’t give you any guarantees that all of our tips will be winners but they sure are a good place to start!
try before you buy
Roulette games that use automated software can be played as demo versions.
Why is this important?
If you are new to American roulette, playing for free is a good idea.
When you play American roulette in the demo version, you can’t win cash but there is no money at stake.
Newbies can use that time to understand the rules of American roulette.
The different types of bets can take a bit of getting used to in those early stages.
Demo play can fill in any gaps in your knowledge.
As you become confident, there are many real stakes versions of American roulette on our roster.
Keep it simple
Players in the US are naturally drawn to American Roulette.
We get it: It’s the favored option for many and it's the version that we grew up with.
It’s important to remember that house edge.
Because of the two green pockets, any of the regular roulette bets have a marginally lower chance of dropping in.
With European and French roulette, the chances are slightly higher.
That’s because of the lone ‘zero’ pocket.
We are talking about small percentages but it’s a point to keep in mind.
Stick with your strategy
Over time, you’ll identify a staking strategy when it comes to playing American roulette online.
Maybe you’ll want to stay with those near 50/50 calls.
Perhaps you’ll focus on streets, splits or corners.
Occasionally, you may include a straight bet on a single number.
Like many players, you may use a combo of bets playing American roulette online.
The tip here is to find a formula and stick to it.
Very few experienced American roulette players will approach the table without a plan.
Betting on an ad hoc basis can produce wins but it becomes chaotic.
It can also lead to a point where a player loses control and forgets to check on their bankroll.
Keep an eye on your bankroll
It’s important to emphasize the benefits of bankroll management.
The bankroll is a casino term and it’s the same as your account balance.
It’s the amount of money you have available to play with when you step up to play American roulette.
How much should you play with?
Many experienced players recommend putting aside 10% of that bankroll.
Do the math, work out what 10% is in dollars and cents, and stick to that figure.
If you are having a bad run at a roulette table, just walk away.
Don’t chase your losses.
If you’ve had a good session that’s great but don’t expect it to continue.
Follow the guidelines of responsible gambling and apply the 10% rule to American roulette and any casino game.
