You have an opportunity to make inside bets and outside bets at roulette and it can be easily seen at the table layout: there are spaces for making bet on any particular number (inside bets) and additional options (outside bets): red or black, even or odd number, 1-18 numbers, 19-36 numbers.

It is possible to observe three types of roulette table layouts: American, European and French ones. As for American and European layouts, they are practically the same with the only one difference: there are 0 and 00 sections on the American roulette table layout when the European one has the section of 0 only.

As for French roulette table layout, it has one 0 section too but it is wider than two previous tables; moreover, there are no colored chips for players, everybody uses cash chips. There is also a special person (named "stickman") in French Roulette who announces the winner and pays them money, so the game is a little bit slower than American and European Roulettes.
