What is Roullete?


The game Roullete, or roulette, is a gambling game in which a small ball is released in the opposite direction of a revolving wheel and players make bets about which red or black numbered compartment the ball will drop into as it comes to rest. The game originated in the late 18th century at casinos in Europe. It is a game of chance and all bets are made against the house.

A solid, slightly convex wood disk with a metal spindle is used as the wheel. Around its rim are thirty-six numbered compartments alternately painted red and black. The first dozen numbers are arranged in pairs, with two odd and two even numbers in each pair. The second dozen numbers are grouped together and the third consists of three numbers in a horizontal line. A central compartment, surrounded by the other compartments, is numbered 0 and on American-style wheels there are also two green zero pockets.

Once the bets are placed, the croupier (dealer) places a marker on the winning number and removes the losing chips from the table. If a player’s number is the winner, the dealer will pay them their winnings. This is called “La Partage.” The La Partage rule reduces the house edge on even-money bets to 1.35%.

Each Roulette table carries a placard describing the minimum and maximum bets allowed. Set a budget before you arrive at the casino and choose a table within that range. The minimum bet is typically $5 and the maximum is $1,000 for outside bets. Outside bets are based on specific propositions, such as high-low, odd-even, red-black, or the first, second or third dozen.

Roulette is played by many people, but the game is most popular in France and Monaco. It is a favorite at the Monte Carlo casino, and in some of the world’s finest hotels and restaurants. It is a fast-paced, exciting game that is easy to learn and fun to play.

Roulette can be played online at the best live casinos. This version of the game is identical to the traditional one, with the exception that the croupier is live. It allows the player to place bets through the keyboard or smartphone, and is handled in real time by a trained dealer. It can be a little more confusing, but it is still very enjoyable and gives the player an authentic casino experience. The player must be aware that the odds are marginally against them on all bets, so they should try to keep their losses to a minimum. Some players like to watch the other players, hoping they can spot a hidden strategy or simply do the opposite of their opponents’ decisions.
