The Rules on ‘En Prison’, ‘La Partage’ and House Advantage

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.Roulette partly owes its world-wide popularity to its existing rules and to its house advantage.

The House advantage:

What does it mean to use the ‘house advantage’ rule?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.You’ll soon come to understand that the house advantage seems a little unfair to players, but how else are casinos suppose to raise money to stay in business?Instead in protesting against it, just use your deep understanding about house advantage and other useful roulette rules to increase your chances of winning.

To widen your knowledge about house advantage, you can use this statistics: There is a 2.7 % advantage for a European roulette table (single zero), while the American (double zero) roulette table has a 5.26% advantage and 7.9% if one bets on the five number 0-00-1-2-3.If there is a house advantage, players are given less than the usual number of chips, usually one or two less.More like paying commissions really.

The Rule of ‘En Prison’:

The ‘En Prison’ (otherwise known as ‘in prison’) roulette rule is one of the many roulette rules out there. 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’

The la partage roulette rule is similar to the en prison rule except for the fact that, in this case, the player loses half the bet and does not have the option of leaving the bet in prison (en prison) for another spin.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.

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.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).
