Roulette is one of the most famous casino games out there. It has played a major role in an endless row of movies, hence you will probably not find anyone who has never heard about this game of luck. Translated from french, Roulette means “the little wheel”. And that is exactly what Roulette is all about. A small wheel, with 37 different slots, and a tiny ball that spins around until it eventually comes to a stop in one of the slots. These slots are either black or red, except for one which is green. Each one of them also has a designated number, and it’s the numbers you are betting on. The slots are numbered from 1 to 36, plus a green zero.
Roulette is an old game, though not as old as some of the famous card games out there. It dates back to the 18th century, and was widely played in France and Italy. It then reached the USA in the 19th Century and after that made its way around the globe. With time, Roulette has evolved into two distinctive variations, and you should be extremely careful when choosing which one to play.
Roulette is a refreshingly simple game. You have a big, green table with all the numbers available on the Roulette wheel. They are all neatly lined up in the middle, whereas the outer areas of the table have different expressions written on them, all meaning some form of combination. This is called the layout.
Basically, all you have to do is place your casino chips on the numbers you have faith in, and wait for the croupier to spin the little wheel. Where the ball lands will determine whether you win or lose. If you guessed correctly, you walk away with some extra cash. If your guess is wrong, you lose your bet.
The more numbers you bet on, the higher the chances of winning, but the lower the return. If you put money on just one number, though, you could get up to 35 times your money back. Experienced players have a bunch of numbers in their mind long before they even step into the casino and usually make good use of the different combinations available, but we will not go into details of the rules – you have our nice little rules tab next to each Roulette game to consider where it all is explained in detail.
Suffice it to say that there are two main types of bets: outside bets and inside bets. Inside bets are bets on shorter number sequences or single numbers. The sequence of numbers you can bet on is determined by the layout; you would normally place a bet on a vertical or horizontal line on the layout. Outside bets are placed on larger groups of numbers (for example multiple lines or columns on the layout), or if you choose to bet on a color. Outside bets offer better odds at winning, but lower payouts. The one color or number you cannot bet on is the green zero. If the ball lands there, the house automatically wins.
All you need to remember is that Roulette is totally dependent on the balance between chances of winning and the payouts. Most players will find a golden line somewhere in the middle, where they still experience the adrenaline of every spin, but do count on winning reasonably often. Betting on just one number on the table is fun for a couple of times, but you should decrease your risk of losses by lowering your potential payouts.
You won’t lack for betting options playing Roulette games at Codeta – we have made a point of offering only the best games available on the market.
