What is Roullete?

The game of Roullete (French for little wheel) is a casino game where players place bets on a single number or various groupings of numbers. They can also bet on the colour red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or if it’s high or low. It’s a fun and easy to play game and it has become one of the most popular games at casinos and gambling houses worldwide.

The Roulette wheel consists of a solid disc slightly convex in shape with compartments or pockets around its edge that, on European wheels, are alternately coloured red and black and numbered nonconsecutively from 1 to 36. There is also a green division numbered 0, and on American tables there are two extra green sections labelled 0 and 00. In the course of a spin, a small ball will fall into one of these compartments and determine the winning number.

Before the wheel is spun, the player places coloured chips on the betting table in the desired position. Between each spin, the dealer will collect these chips and return them to the player if they win. A minimum bet is PS1 per round, which gives the player a chance to win a prize equal to the value of the chips they have placed on the table.

There are two main categories of bets in Roulette: Inside and Outside. Inside bets are bets on a specific number or group of numbers and include Straight (a single number), Split (two adjacent numbers) and Corner (three numbers located on a square). Outside bets are bets on an entire row or column, either black or red.

It’s best to play the European version of Roulette if possible as this has a much lower house edge. However, if the American version is available, it’s best to avoid as this has an extra green pocket (or pockets) which increases the house edge significantly. Alternatively, look for the French variation of Roulette with a “la partage” rule which can reduce the house edge even further.
