It is quite impossible to win in a roulette match without knowing the different rules of roulette such as the house advantage against you as the one playing. It is actually safe to assume that without the house advantage and other roulette rules, roulette as a game would not gain much popularity and recognition. It would be comparable to a country without anybody ruling it.
What is This House Advantage Rule
You might be wondering what this house advantage is. The term house when you are playing roulette refers to the casino where the game is being players, thus the term ‘house advantage’ is actually the edge that the casino has against the players. As you know more about roulette, you would notice that the house advantage may seem a bit disadvantageous for the players’ part, yet it has become accepted since it is the only way that casinos could get profit from the game to help them keep their businesses running. That is why players are advised not to contradict this part of the game and just use what they know about roulette rules in order to make use of the house advantage to their advantage and make more productive results when they are playing the game.
Hera is some of the basic information you need to know about house advantage to give you a better understanding: The house advantage differs for every kind of roulette table you are playing; the European roulette table has 2.7% while the American roulette table has 5.26% (with a 7.9% for the five number bet of 0-00-1-2-3). A chip or two would be given to the winners in order to get the house advantage. In some cases, only a proportion is given if what was won was lesser than what should be given if there is no advantage. It is like you pay commissions to the casino every time you win a match.
What is This ‘En Prison’ Rule
Among the many roulette rules that you should know is the En Prison rule, derived from the term in prison. Well, you have to remember that this rule does not apply to all casinos and it can only be applicable for even-money bets. What happens in an En Prison rule is that a certain player gets a special privilege of being able to get his bet back if the ball hits zero after a spin. However, if for the next spin the ball goes to zero again, this is the time that the player loses what he has bet.
What is This ‘La Partage’ Rule:
The ‘La Partage’ rule is actually close to the ‘En prison’ rule only with some differences on how much a player loses. The player only gets half of his bet back and he does not even have an option to take what he has bet in prison, on the next spin. Aside from landing on a zero after a spin, this rule can also be made applicable in cases when there is an ‘outside’ even bet on red/black, high/low and odd/even.
Both the La Partage and En Prison rules can be very engaging rules if the payouts are lessened to half of what should be on even money bets. In fact, if a player can only apply both of the said rules when playing the game, they increase their chances of lowering the house advantage to 1.35% especially if they decide to bet in Red when playing a European single-zero roulette tables.
