What Is The Roulette Game

Roulette is a game played in casinos and comes from a French word meaning little wheel. To play the game, bets should be placed on either a single number, groups of numbers or the colours red or black. A ball is then dropped onto the Roulette wheel, which consists of numbered compartments marked with those two colours, and the players are betting on the number or colour at which they guess the ball will come to rest.

Rules Of Roulette

The Roulette wheel has numbers between 1 and 36 in a random pattern and alternate in colours from red to black. On the European version it has the number 0 in green and on the American version it is two slots marked with 0. A bet is then placed by laying down chips on a betting mat on the precise location to indicate where the bet is to be made.

Roulette Game In Play Where Bets Are Being Placed

Then the Roulette wheel is spun to see where the ball lands. When everyone has placed their bets, which is done by placing coloured chips on a Roulette mat, the croupier stops the betting and then the wheel is spun and the ball rolled and dropped onto the wheel. Once the ball stops and slides into one of the slots, the croupier declares the result, gathers all losing bets and pays to the winner their profit.

Betting Tips To Win

Roulette is very easy to understand and it is simple to learn how to bet. You could start by betting a small amount on black, if you lose, double the next bet but on red and keep doing this until you win and you will cover your losses. Just make sure you have enough money to play like this until your possible win.

The Two Types Of Bets

They are either Inside or Outside bets. An Inside bet would be either single number bets, two vertically/horizontal adjacent numbers, three in a line numbers , corner numbers, top line numbers, six consecutive numbers that construct a horizontal line, three number bet that includes at least a 0 or the first four 0-1-2-3. Then there are the Outside bets which are numbers in the low or high range, chosen colour, even or odd numbers, dozen bet (0-12 or 13-24 or 25-36), vertical column bet or a snake bet which is one of certain numbers in a zigzag pattern.
