A closer look at Roulette

2018-02-03 15:00:00

Roulette is one of the most popular casino games around and did you know the word actually means “little wheel” in French? You learn something new every day as they say! The idea of this game is to place some bets on either a single number or a range of numbers then a dealer will spin a wheel and if the ball lands on the number you placed a bet on then you win. Players choose from numbers ranging from 0 to 36 and it is possible to place bets in a variety of ways such as numbers, colours and even if the number is odd or even.

In number ranges from 1 to 10 and 19 to 28, odd numbers are usually red and even numbers are black. From 11 to 18 and 29 to 36, the odd numbers are black for a change and the even numbers are red. The number 0 (zero) is usually green and this is known as the European style. In America, there is usually an additional green pocket displayed as 00 (two zeroes) and the wheel is placed at one end. French style roulette tables have the wheel in the centre and the betting layout on either side of it.
