Explore the world of gaming with roulette

Roulette is a popular casino game played in either brick and mortar or online casinos. The game was built in the 18th century and typically means the ‘little wheel’. It is popular in the Americas, Europe, including France and the Atlantic. It has a slight variation in each of these regions. For example, the American and the European roulette have the number 00 but the French variant only has the number 0 on the wheel.

Roulette is considered as among the easiest of casino games to understand and to play. As the meaning suggests, it is a wheel comprising red or black colored chips with no value denominations imprinted on it. However, a range of numbers is imprinted, with the American version having 38 chips.

When betting on the roulette, the player chooses either an inside or an outside bet. In inside bets, the player decides whether the ball will fall on one or within a range of pockets. This decision is made based on proximity. Outside betting on the other hand, involves choosing whether the ball will fall on the red or black pocket, and an even or odd number.

The actual game involves spinning the wheel in a specific direction, and the ball opposite to the direction of the wheel. This is done around a circular track running around the wheel’s circumference. After spinning for some time, the ball finally loses momentum and falls onto one of the 38 pockets.

The bets are placed throughout the time when the wheel and the ball spin until when it is just about to drop. This continues until when the dealer announces that no bets are permitted. The bets must also be between the minimum and the maximum bets allowed and based on either inside or outside bets. When the ball finally falls, the winners are determined and settled before the next spin.
