European Roulette: A Guide to Non-Gambling Fun!

While European Roulette is traditionally associated with casinos and real money wagers, it can also be a thrilling and engaging game for pure entertainment, perfect for game nights, parties, or even solo practice. Here’s a guide to enjoy European Roulette without the gambling aspect:

What You’ll Need:

  • European Roulette Wheel: Look for toy versions online or in game stores. These often come with plastic chips. You can also DIY a wheel using cardboard and markers.
  • Play Chips: Use poker chips, coins, buttons, or anything else as betting tokens. Assign different values for variety.
  • Score Sheet (Optional): Keep track of scores and bets for a more structured game.
  • Friends or Family (Optional): Share the fun! More players add excitement and social interaction.

How to Play European Roulette:

  1. Set Up the Wheel: Place the roulette wheel on a flat surface. Each numbered pocket (1-36) represents a potential outcome. The European wheel has one green “0” pocket.
  2. Choose Your Bets: Each player gets chips. Decide on betting options:
    • Single Number: Place a chip on any single number. Highest payout (35:1) but lowest chance of winning.
    • Inside Bets: Place chips on groups of numbers:
      • Split: Two adjacent numbers (17:1).
      • Line: Three numbers in a row (11:1).
      • Corner: Four numbers meeting at a corner (8:1).
      • Street: Three numbers in a row (11:1).
    • Outside Bets: Cover larger sections of the wheel:
      • Red/Black: Even chance, pays 1:1.
      • Odd/Even: Even chance, pays 1:1.
      • High/Low: Numbers 1-18 or 19-36, pays 1:1.
      • Dozens: Bet on one of three sections (1-12, 13-24, 25-36), pays 2:1.
  3. Spin the Wheel: One person spins the wheel, another calls out the winning number and pocket color.
  4. Resolve Bets: Compare bets to the winning outcome. Pay out winning chips based on the chosen bet and its odds.
  5. Keep Playing: Repeat rounds, taking turns spinning and placing bets. You can set time limits, score points for wins, or create your own fun variations.

Non-Gambling European Roulette:

  • Theme it Up: Choose a theme and assign point values or challenges based on winning numbers/colors.
  • Educational Spin: Use the roulette as a learning tool. For example, assign numbers to countries and answer trivia about them when they win.
  • Creative Bets: Make up silly or challenging bets for extra fun, like predicting the order of winning colors.


  • Keep it light and focus on the fun, not winning or losing.
  • Set time limits and chip restrictions to avoid overdoing it.
  • Ensure everyone involved is comfortable with the non-gambling aspect.

With a little creativity, European Roulette can be a fantastic way to enjoy some lighthearted entertainment without the risks associated with gambling. So, gather your friends, spin the wheel, and have some fun!
