The American Roulette has the same origins as the European Roulette. The changes and differences came a while after its creation. In the American version players can use “non value” chips. What this means is that all the chips that belong to the same player are of the same value that was established at the moment that they were bought. The chips can exchanged for money at the roulette table. The name for the game comes from a French word and it means “small wheel”.
