Without an adept knowledge on the rules used in roulette and the house advantage, playing and winning the game would prove to be an impossible feat.Much of the credit for the international rave for the game roulette should go to the nature of its rules and the house advantage.
The Rule on House Advantage:
So what exactly does the ‘house advantage’ stand for?:House, in roulette, means the casino where the game is being held, and to use the term ‘house advantage’, it simply means the advantage that the casino has among all the other players.House advantage is one of the ways that a casino use to earn money that is why, even if it may seem partial towards the casino, it has become accepted.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.It is just like paying commissions.
The ’En Prison’
En Prison, also called in prison, is one of the many rules that the game roulette has.This rule, however, is only applicable to some casinos and when there is 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.If, for example, the next spin gets another zero, then that is the time that the bet gets lost.
The ‘La Partage’
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.This rule has something to do with the outside even money bets made on odd/even, red/black and high/low and is only applicable when the resulting number in a roulette wheel spin is zero.
Both the En Prsion and La Partage roulette rules are quite a catch among players since it minimizes the house advantage through making the payouts for ‘even-money bets’ into half.Thus, if the roulette rules En Prison and La Partage are used in the game, this would mean that there is only a 1.35% house advantage when betting on Red in a single-zero roulette table (European).
