Roulette is a classic casino game that has been around for a very long time. Roulette has actually been played since the 18th / 19th century and was then one of the most popular games of chance and even today. It is common for people to think that it looks advanced, but in fact it is quite simple. You can bet on a number or numbers between numbers and on the color that is red or black. If you bet on color, there is almost a 50/50 odds that you will win. The game is about spinning a ball around in a roulette table with several different numbers in two different colors.
There are three different game variants of roulette and the two most common are the american and the european. What sets the games apart is that the European has 37 different numbers 0-36. While the american has 38 numbers because there is also a 00. The bank always wins when it ends up at 0 or 00 and therefore the odds are better for the bank on the american roulette. When you play on the internet, almost no one plays on the american variant because there is the European one almost everywhere. You may think that you yourself have a better chance than the casino to win, but in the long run, the casino wins the most.
The roulette table consists of twelve rows with three columns. In each column there are thus three different numbers examples in the first column 1, 2, 3 and in the next 4, 5, 6 and so on until the last 34, 35, 36. There is a 0 and possibly a 00 on the table and they too can be invested in. The rest of the table is marked differently depending on which bet you want to make. For example, there is a black and red marking which means that you can bet that it will be red or black.
If you bet on a single number, you normally get 35 times your bet. This is a very quick way to make your money grow but still very low chance of it happening. When the ball stops at 0 or 00, all players lose their bets. In addition to the people who have put their money in the simplest ways red or black, high or low, odd or even will lose half their stake to the bank if the ball stays at 0 or 00. This is the most common rule but it can sometimes vary from different casinos but as i said that is the basic rule.
