Spin The Fancy Roulette To Grab A Fortune
Roulette has to be the first name that comes to your mind when you say casino. One of the most popular casino table games is available in regular and live casino variants. That rich dark wooden table housing the roulette wheel, the multi-coloured chips, and the sound of the ball rolling spinning around the wheel before it bounces across the pockets, these are the things that charm every Roulette-lover.
The game originated in France in the 18th century, and today many types of Roulette are available, for the sake of simplicity, we’ll stick with the three main variations. The European and French Roulette are common in design and layout, with ball pockets numbered 1- 36, coloured red and black with a green zero pocket. The American one adds a green double zero pocket too. These versions each have their own globally dedicated fan-base!
Next to the roulette will be the cloth-covered betting area, known as the layout. On the layout numbered boxes are marked out to correspond to the colours and numbers of the pockets on the wheel, along with a number of simple betting strategies that can be taken advantage of.
A relatively simple game to comprehend, you place your bet on the number or pocket you think the small metal ball will land in once it has stopped spinning the opposite way to the wheel, if the ball lands in one of the pockets you have chosen, you’re a winner! (how much will be dependent on your chosen betting strategy)
Roulette betting options
Inside bets – these are bets that are placed within the confines of the section of the table layout that contains only the numbers corresponding to the wheel, there will be one number per box, and you can place your chips as described below.
- Straight/Single – The bet is on a single number with the chip placed centrally in its box
- Split – Betting on two adjacent numbers by placing the chip on the line that separates them.
- Street – Betting on three horizontally aligned numbers by placing the chip on the outer edge of either number at the end of the line.
- Corner – Four numbers are bet on with the chip being placed on the common corner of all four numbers.
- Six/Double Street – betting on six numbers that make two horizontal lines, the chip is placed on the outside corner shared by either the left or right side of the numbers.
- Trio – Three number bet where one of the numbers is a zero, achieved by placing the chip on the corner of the three numbers (ie: 0, 1, 2 or 0, 2, 3)
- First Four – Simply the first four numbers, 0, 1, 2, and 3. Place the chip on the outside corner shared by either 0 - 1 or 0 - 3
- Basket – This applies to the American table only and adds the double zero to the first four, so the bets would be on 00, 0, 1, 2, 3. The chip again goes on the outside corner shared by either 0 – 1 or 00 – 3
Remember, the bets above are placed by placing chips ‘inside’ the main table layout. ‘Outside’ of this main layout are a number of betting strategies that are marked as below and can be used by placing the chip inside the strategy box:
- Low - (numbers 1 – 18)
- High - (numbers 19 – 36)
- Red/Black – A bet on the colour of the pocket the ball will fall in
- Even/Odd – A bet on either type of number
- Dozen – A bet on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd set of 12 numbers
- Column – A bet on the corresponding column of numbers
Tier, Orphelins, Voisins and Zero bets can also be used and are shown separately as an oval sequence of numbers marked with each of the aforementioned options.
Many online roulette games also have a tab displaying as many as 500 of the previous winning numbers. These stats can be used to devise your own strategy, hot numbers that win often, cold numbers that hardly ever seem to show, the choice is only limited by your imagination.
About the Game
It was in the 18th century, where the first game of Roulette was played in France. Blaise Pascal had invented a basic form of the Roulette wheel. However, it was in 1720 that the hybrid version of the wheel came up. In 1796, it became popular all over Paris. Its popularity then spread across the rest of Europe and crossed oceans and continents. Gradually, its modern versions started evolving to form what we find in the Casino Room. If you want to get the feel of a true casino, Roulette is a good place to start.
