Playing Roulette

The game of Roulette is one of the most popular casino games around, both online and in brick-and-mortar casinos. The name is French and the direct translation means ‘little wheel.’ This is a game that dates back to the 18th century. There are currently two popular versions of the game – a French version and an American version.

The game is actually very simple. Most wheels used in Roulette feature numbers that go from 0 up to 36. When playing the game in France or other parts of Europe you may notice that there is just one zero. The wheel used in the American version features a double zero.

A white ball is rolled by the croupier who spins the wheel at the same time. At this point, bets have already been placed. The numbers are all set out on the table for the players to place their bets and are placed in three groups, each of which has 12 numbers. There are also options for betting on odd or even, black or red. Players can place an ‘inside’ bet, which means guessing on the type of pocket or the number that the ball will land on. An ‘outside’ bet is placed on the color of the pocket that the ball lands on or whether or not it is an odd or even number.
