Roulette began way back in the 18th century, back in France where it first originated. Then it immediately spread all over America and certain parts of Europe. This is why there is a so-called American roulette and European roulette. These are two varieties of the live roulette wheel. The game instantly became famous and still continues to draw a large crowd among present casino goers.
This fun game is played in most casinos anywhere in the world. Skills in playing the game is not much of a requirement, as a player only needs to pick a number. Nevertheless, there are also a lot of ways to put your bets while playing this game of chance, and you might want to learn it to improve your chances at the live roulette wheel.
Some Basic Knowledge
The most important component of a roulette game is the roulette wheel. This wheel has the numbers zero to thirty six. That is if we talk about the European roulette wheel, because the American roulette wheel has an added double zero, aside from the zero to thirty six. Aside from the numbers, each number on the wheel also has a particular color. It can either be black or red. These numbers can also be used for betting, side from betting on the numbers.
Just like other games in a casino like blackjack, each roulette table also has its own minimum and maximum limits for the bet. Depending on how much money you have for betting, carefully choose which roulette table you want to play on.
When To Place Your Bets
It is the dealer who is responsible for spinning the wheel in one direction and throwing the ball to the other direction. The wheel will take several spins before it comes to a stop. While the wheel is still spinning, players are still allowed to place their bets on their chosen numbers or colors in the roulette board by putting their assigned colored chips in. As soon as the dealer shouts “No more bets”, then that is the time players have to stop putting their chips. Any chip placed after the shout of the dealer will not be honored. A few seconds after, the wheel will stop and the ball drops on a particular number with a particular color. This is then the winning number or color.
Where to Place Your Bets
Since there are different ways to bet on roulette, players need to know how much payout they will get for each bet. Betting on a single number gives them a higher payout, but of course their chances of guessing the number where the ball will land after the spin is also slim. However, players may also bet on odd or even numbers, red or black and the zeros. This has a higher chance of winning, but then the payouts are smaller.
Playing on a live roulette wheel is really exciting and players love the feeling of awaiting the moment when the wheel stops and see where the ball would land. If they are just lucky, the ball might always land on the numbers or color they have chosen. There is no need to bluff, unlike card games in a casino. All you need to bring is a lot of luck to win in roulette.
