Roulette is a popular casino game where in your bet on certain things, you let the wheel spin, and pray that the ball lands on your bet or one of your bets. It has changed little ever since 1796 with either single zero wheels or double zero wheels.
There are two kinds of wheel and each kind of wheel has a certain arrangement of numbers. For the single zero the numbers are arranged as follows: 0-32-15-19-4-21-2-25-17-34-6-27-13-36-11-30-8-23-10-5-24-16-33-1-20-14-31-9-22-18-29-7-28-12-35-3-26. For the double zero wheel, the arrangement is: 0-28-9-26-30-11-7-20-32-17-5-22-34-15-3-24-36-13-1-00-27-10-25-29-12-8-19-31-18-6-21-33-16-4-23-35-14-2.
How to bet and play the roulette?
There are rules in betting and every casino might have a different rule in terms of how many bets you can place, maximum/minimum amount of bet, and so on. The rules will mostly be displayed on the table where everyone can see it easily.
You can bet in many ways like specific numbers, odd/even, high/low numbers, and/or by color. The bets are grouped into two parts inside bets and outside bets. Inside bets are betting on certain numbers where in you chose certain numbers or a certain grouping of specific numbers. Outside bets are those where in you bet by columns of numbers, by dozen, by color, by lows/highs, or odd/even.
You just put your bet or bets, either chip or money, on a certain area in the board when the dealer says to place your bets. When the dealer says no more bets then the players are not allowed to make any more changes to their bets. The dealer will hand gesture or wave their hand on the table signifying this. When the bets are set, the wheel will spin and the ball will be thrown.
When the wheel stops turning and the ball is firmly on a number slot, you know who will win. The dealer will take the loosing bet chips/money and give the pay-out to the winning bets.
The chances of winning and pay-out
Each grouping of bets have a specific chance of winning. Outside bets have bigger wining chances, but the pay-out is lower than then inside bets. Color, odd/even, and lows/highs have the highest chances of winning since the numbers are grouped into two but it has the lowest pay-out among the bets. Betting on any inside bets, especially on a certain number, will give you more pay-out but with very low chance of winning.
The pay-out is in ratio to the bet that you have placed. Color, odd/even, and lows/highs have 1:1 ratio, meaning you just double the amount of your original bet. The highest pay-out is when you get lucky on one certain number with 35:1, or 35 times of your original bet will be rewarded to you.
