Indians play both European and American Roulette and there are also traditional French Roulette fans.
The difference between European and American roulette wheel is that in European, there is a single zero pocket, while the American Roulette has two zero pockets. The player can thus place bets on pockets between 1 and 36 on a total of 37 pockets in European, while the same becomes 38 in case of American. This increases the house edge in the case of American Roulette. The house edge in roulette games generally varies between 1.35% and 2.7%. The French Roulette is the oldest form of this game where the roulette wheel is similar to a European one but has fewer betting options.
Big Wheel is a giant wheel positioned vertically and having 52 subsections with a number or some identifying symbol marked in each of these subsections. Playing this wheel game is very simple with players placing their bets on a particular number or symbol that they feel the wheel will land on.

It means you have 2.5% more chances of winning on a European roulette wheel.
