It is quite impossible for a player to dominate the roulette playing fields without the knowledge on house advantage and some rules used in the game.Without these roulette rules and house advantage, roulette would probably not be as popular as it is today as it’ll be like having a nation without a ruler.
The House advantage:
So what exactly does the ‘house advantage’ stand for?:Well, in roulette, the word ‘house’ is used to describe the casino and the ‘house advantage’ simply means the advantage the house/casino has over every single player who plays roulette there.Although having a house advantage may prove to be biased against players, it has become understandable since it is the only way for a casino to stay in business.There is no need to take this fact negatively and, instead, your knowledge on roulette rules and house advantage can actually improve your odds of succeeding in roulette matches.
In order to have a better understanding of what house advantage is, you can use this fact: The house advantage differs for the single zero roulette table (European) and the double zero roulette table (American), 2. 7% and 5.26 %, respectively, with the latter having a 7.9% house advantage when having a five number bet on 0-00-1-2-3.The House advantage is gained by paying the winners a chip or two (or a proportion of it) less than what it should have been if there was no advantage.More like paying commissions really.
The ‘En Prison’ rule:
There are a number of available roulette rules and one of these is En Prison (in prison).Not all casinos incorporate this rule and you can only use this on an even-money bet.What happens in an En prison Rule is players are allowed to get their bet back and place the bet for another spin if the ball roll results to zero.In the second case, if the following spin the outcome is again zero, then the whole bet is lost.
The ‘La Partage’ Rule:
La Partage rule is very similar with En Prison rule but only differ in terms of the bet since the former still gets half of the bet even if the ball roll is zero and the player has no option of taking half of the remaining money back because it is expected to be placed as a bet on the next round.When the roulette wheel spin turn out is zero and when there is an ‘outside’ even money bet on high/low, odd/even, red/black, the la partage rule can be used.
By lessening the payouts on ‘even-money bets’ to half of the original, both rules, La Partage and En Prison, are very encouraging roulette rules for players.When both the En Prison and La Partage roulette rules are incorporated in game, what happens is that the house advantage is reduced to 1.35% when betting on Red in a Eurpoean roulette table (single-zero).
