The Roulette Odds

The most important thing in any gambling game is the chances of winning the player has. In the game of roulette odds depend not only on the wheel the player has chosen, but also on the bet. At first counting the roulette odds may seem difficult, however, if you take a closer look you will see that there is nothing hard in it. The table we provide here will help you see your odds and make sure you place the correct bet.

It is a common fact that the European wheel has larger odds than the American one. This is because in the American wheel there are 38 slots, and the European wheel has 37. In the American wheel there are 38 places where the ball may land. Therefore, when the player bets on a single number, the edge is 1 to 38. As there is no pattern in the slots where the ball lands, the chances of winning are very small.

To see the correct and more specific numbers that characterize the roulette odds, take a look at the chart below.
