The Roulette wheel numbers and their sequence differs depending on which version of the game you are playing. Roulette has become such a popular game around the world that different versions have begun to pop up, as different countries develop their own way to play!

For a little bit of context, before we delve a little deeper, the general number sequence for the two main versions of the game are listed below – 

The American Edition Of Roulette Usually Runs As Follows:

0, 28, 9, 26, 30, 11, 7, 20, 32, 17, 5, 22, 34, 15, 3, 24, 36, 13, 1, 00, 27, 10, 25, 29, 12, 8, 19, 31, 18, 6, 21, 33, 16, 4, 23, 35, 14, 2.

And The European Roulette Numbers Follow This Clockwise Pattern:

0, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2, 25, 17, 34, 6, 27, 13, 36, 11, 30, 8, 23, 10, 5, 24, 16, 33, 1, 20, 14, 31, 9, 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, 26.

There are three main colours included on a Roulette wheel, with red and black being the most universally recognised. Green is also featured on the wheel, used to highlight the zero and double zero pockets. Both versions of the game feature the standard zero pocket, but the American edition also has a double zero pocket, to make things a bit more exciting. Although the number of pockets on both versions of the  differs, you will find that they all have a highest pocket number of 36, giving the game some level of regulation. 

The colours usually follow the same numbered pattern, no matter where in the world you happen to be playing, as detailed below: 

Red

1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16, 18, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 30, 32, 34 and 36.

Black

2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 29, 31, 33 and 35.

Green

0, and 00 if it is present on the wheel.

As it is clear to see, the numbers are placed in no particular order, with no real rhyme or reason, and not in numerical order. 

Much like any numbers game, some Roulette players like to believe the myth that there are certain “hot” numbers featured on the wheel, that the ball might be more inclined to land on than others. This theory isn’t supported by any kind of betting authority; however, some casinos choose to display frequent winning numbers from specific period of times. Some players interpret these posts as detailing what numbers will equal a win, and try to follow that pattern.

Speaking of players and their theories, many appear to have weakness for the number 21. It is somewhat understandable when you think of the equally as famous card game – Blackjack, where 21 is the most desired total! 

If you’re moving your gameplay online then you will soon find that casinos all operate using a Random Number Generator (RNG), to make sure that the number selection is always fair and random. This allows gambling sites to be completely transparent with their players, and they are often audited to confirm this.

After all, the best game is always a fair game!
