American Roulette, like most other forms of online Roulette, can be picked up by any player quickly. There are three standard bet types to understand. Once a player has those down, it will be much easier to understand the more complex wager types. Here is an explanation of the three basic bet types:
Wager on what individual number or number range the ball will fall into.
Wager on whether the ball will fall on a red or black number.
Odd or Even Bet:
Wager on whether the ball will fall on an odd or even number.
Outside of the three standard Roulette bet types, there are additional wager subcategories known as inside bets and outside Bets. Here is a breakdown of inside and outside bets:
Single number, split, street, corner, five-number, double street
Red or black, odd or even, 1 through 18, 19 through 36, dozens, columns

In American online Roulette, there are a number of special features for players to enjoy.
Special features include:
The “Racetrack” presented above the main roulette table provides a variety of pre-defined betting options. Choosing any spot on the racetrack with automatically place the corresponding bets on the main table.
The Neighbor Bets selector appears above the main roulette table and is used in conjuncture with the Racetrack. Players can place bets on the numbers that sit directly across from a particular number on the wheel. This is known as a neighbor bet. For instance, placing a neighbor bet on the number 12 would additionally cover numbers 28 and 35, both of which neighbor 12 on the wheel. Players may put neighbor bets on up to five numbers at a time - the five numbers adjacent to a number on the right and left sides.
To place a neighbor bet:
Hot and cold numbers:
- Choose the number of neighbor bets you wish to place up to a maximum of five.
- Click on the number you want to bet on - chips will be placed on each number you click on.
- Click on ‘Spin’.
One of the best features is the history box to quickly see the five numbers on the wheel that have won the most in your session - the hot numbers - as well as the five numbers that have won the least - the cold numbers. This information can help guide your wager decisions.
