When you are playing on the American roulette wheel you should place a row bet. The row bet cannot be placed on the European roulette wheel because of the absence of double zero. The bet will include both the zeros simultaneously increasing your win chances. If the ball stops on any of the 0 or 00, you can receive a 17/1 payout. However, the odds in both the wheels are 35: 1.
