Online Games. We hope by now it is clear why you should never even approach a triple-zero wheel. This is a horrible game that will drain your bankroll almost three times faster than conventional variations that use one green pocket. While better than what the 000 zero wheel has to offer, 00 roulette still carries a high house edge and generally should be avoided.
The European wheels with a single zero offer the best winning odds but these can be improved further under certain circumstances. Some variants enforce a special rule known as “la partage” (the word “partage” means “to share” in French).
This French rule is quite favorable for roulette players as it enables them to recover half of their losing bets after a spin of zero. It only applies to even-money wagers like red/black, odd/even, and high/low that otherwise lose automatically when the ball lands in the green pocket. Instead of losing everything, the player recoups half of their original stake.
The la partage rule cuts the house edge on even-money bets in half, reducing it from 2.70% to 1.35%. Even-odds players will therefore lose approximately ¢0.01 per dollar wagered over the long run instead of ¢0.03 as they otherwise would. You can find roulette games with la partage in many online casinos that offer live dealer tables powered by Evolution Gaming.
Some casinos in Atlantic City and Las Vegas enforce this rule at certain tables that use the double-zero configuration. This decreases the house edge from 5.26% to 2.63%. If applied at a wheel with three green zero pockets, la partage can decrease the casino advantage from 7.69% to 3.85%.
