What is Roullete?
Roulette is a casino game that has been around for hundreds of years. It is known for its glamour, mystery, and exciting gameplay. It also offers a surprising level of depth for serious betters who learn the rules well.
Roullete is the term used by croupiers to describe the roulette wheel. The wheel consists of a spinning disk with divisions that revolve around the base of a bowl. The divisions are numbered from 1 to 36, in a seemingly random pattern, and alternate between red and black colors. There is also a green division on American wheels marked 0 and two green compartments on European wheels that are marked 00.
The game begins after the croupier throws a ball into the roulette wheel. While players can still make bets during this time, they won’t win until the ball settles in a pocket that marks a winning number. The winning player is then paid out according to the amount of their bet.
Before the wheel is spun, players place their bets on a betting mat by laying down chips in the correct location. They can be made on any of the numbers in the layout, or on a grouping of numbers called propositions. The payout odds are based on the probability that each grouping will win.
Inside Bets: These are bets that focus on specific numbers or a range of pockets based on their position on the board. These bets are less likely to lose than other types of bets.
Outside Bets: These are bets that are more conservative and are more likely to win than other types of bets. These bets include the High or Low bet, the Odd or Even bet, and the Passe et manque bet.
The High or Low bet: You’re wagering that the ball will land on any of the first 18 numbers (1-18) on the layout, or on any of the last 18 numbers (19-36). If it does, you win, but if it doesn’t, you lose your bet.
Odd or Even bet: You’re wagering that you’ll win if the ball lands on one of the 18 odd numbers, or if it lands on one of the 18 even numbers. If it does, you win, but unless the ball lands on a zero, you lose your bet.
Corner Bets/Square Bets: This bet consists of four numbers on the roulette board and can be placed by placing chips on any point that shares a common line with the four numbers. If any of the four numbers wins, you’ll receive a payout of 8-1.
