|Aces.com has tipped the balance of power back in the direction of the player, with its new instant Flash game, European Roulette.|
The amended version of the American ‘Game of Kings’ improves the player’s odds by removing the extra zero that was added to improve house odds, and is already one of the more popular games available at Aces.com.
Aces.com manager, Rene Quesada explained, “Why would we add a game that pays more winnings than the one we had? Because if they play it in Vegas; we’ve got it at Aces.com,” he said. “European Roulette is increasingly popular on the Strip these days so we’ve got to have it at Aces.”
The original form of Roulette was invented in the seventeenth century by mathematician Blasé Pascal, and contained no zeros until it was adapted by early Monte Carlo casino operators, who added the zero to improve the house odds. When the game arrived in the U.S., Americans added a double-zero to give the ball one more place to land and thus improve the house’s chances even further.
Later this month, the Vegas-style online casino will be adding three more games to its comprehensive suite of table and card games.
