Roullette, more commonly known by its French name roulette, is one of the world’s most beloved casino games. A simple yet thrilling based on chance, players have an opportunity to win by correctly guessing which number, grouping or color will be hit when spinning the wheel. Bets may be placed on individual numbers, groups of numbers (red or black, odd/even numbers, high (18-36) or low (0-36) numbers when making bets on roulette.
To play roulette successfully, players must understand how the game works and its procedures for each round. When making a successful bet, the dealer collects winning chips and pays winners before beginning another round. When the wheel stops spinning, a croupier spins it with an arm full of balls to create tension on it until finally declaring “No more bets!”
An easy way to understand roulette is to look at its wheel itself. A roulette wheel consists of a wooden disk with metal separators or frets (commonly referred to by roulette croupiers as “frets”) around its rim that have 36 compartments painted alternately red and black; European wheels feature one green zero section while American versions offer double zero ones.
Outside bets in roulette are among the most common wagers, offering higher returns than inside bets. Outside bets can be placed either on either the first dozen of numbers (12-1) or any subsequent dozen; their Five-number bet pays five-1 as its simplest example. Bets on columns allow players to place their chip(s) in one of three vertical rows that form a triangle on the betting grid, or anywhere within it, creating an angle. Eagle bets or combinations thereof pay 2-1; similarly, Dozens bets known in French as douzaine also pay out at this rate and allow you to place wagers that win numbers will come within first, second or third dozens; it should be noted however, that the house gains an edge with these outside bets including American-style roulette games like American-style roulette (including both zeroes and 00).
