En Prison Rule in Online Roulette

When you play online roulette you want to play where you can find a European wheel instead of an American wheel as the house edge is reduced from 5.26% to 2.7%. You may also want to find an online casino that offers the En Prison rule. What is the En Prison rule and how can it help you win money when playing online roulette?

The En Prison rule makes it so that when you wager on an even money bet like red/black or odd/even and the ball lands in the green Zero your bet is “imprisoned.” That sounds ominous but it is actually good news for the player because you can still win money on your bet. Your bet is carried over to the next spin and if it wins you get your money back (no winnings) but if it loses then you lose your wager. If it happens to land on green again you get another chance until a non-zero spin comes up.

Let’s take an example to illustrate the En Prison rule. Let’s say you bet $10 on red. A zero comes up on the spin so your money is imprisoned for the next spin. It comes up red on that next spin so you get your $10 back. If black came up then you would lose your wager.

The en prison rule is great for the player because it reduces the house edge on a European wheel from 2.7% down to 1.35%.
