Roulette is one of the most popular table games and it’s certainly stood the test of time as its origins stretch back several centuries. It is often seen as one of the more exciting casino games, primarily because it is entirely a game of chance and has little to do with skill or practice.
There are various types of Roulette available, including the American and European versions, but apart from a few minor differences the games are very similar. At Mummys Gold we offer you the chance to enjoy the very best in European Roulette, and you can take advantage of the games lower house edge and stand a chance of winning big!
The term ‘Roulette’ literally means little wheel. The object of the game is to correctly guess the next winning number, and then hope that the little ball, which is spun into the Roulette wheel, will land in the correct demarcated area correlating to the number chosen.
You can place your bets on either a single number or a larger group of numbers, and you can also choose to bet on reds, blacks, even numbers, odd numbers, inside bets, and outside bets. Once these various bets have been placed, the Roulette wheel will be spun in one direction and launch the little ball into the opposite direction.
The circular track on the Roulette wheel will ensure that the ball will hop around and eventually land in one of the designated pockets as it comes to a complete stop. At Mummys Gold, this action is perfectly simulated using state of the art graphics and animations, and you’ll feel like you are in a real casino! The designated pockets on the wheel correlate to the red or black numbers that you would have previously placed your bets on, and when the wheel stops spinning, you’ll see where the ball has landed and find out if you are a winner!
There are various types of Roulette available, and at Mummy Gold you can enjoy several different variants. European Roulette is however a player favourite, and when compared to American Roulette its easy to see why!
European Roulette has a lower house edge than American Roulette as the wheel has one less numbered pocket on it. American Roulette has a double zero pocket as well as the single zero and this pushes its house edge up considerably. In European Roulette, the house edge sits at 2.70 per cent, making it a far more attractive option for anyone looking for a fast, fun and exciting win!
In our European Roulette games you will find bets that match the wheel ranging from 1 to 36, which are allotted either a red colour or a black colour. This setup allows for an equal number of red and black numbers, odd and even numbers, as well as high numbers, from 18 to 36, and low numbers, from 1 to 17.
There is also a single zero pocket that is depicted with a green colour. This zero is also called the house number, as it forms the house edge of the game. If the small ball that spins around the Roulette wheel lands in the zero pocket, you’ll lose your bet to the house, but if it lands anywhere else and you’ve placed your wager on that pocket, you’ll be a winner!
While there have been numerous attempts at determining gaming strategies for European Roulette, and Roulette as a whole, this is largely still a game of luck.
This is what makes this table game so much fun, and it’s why so many players in Europe enjoy watching the iconic black and red wheel of fortune spin its way to massive wins at Mummys Gold!
