What is Roullete?

Roullete is a casino game that involves spinning a wheel and betting on the number the ball will land on. The game is very simple to play, and there are many different bets that can be placed. The odds of winning and the payouts vary depending on which bet you make. The game is played with a betting table/felt and a wheel that has slots numbered from 1 to 36, and two green pockets for zero and 00. The rules of the game are very similar to other European roulette games. The La Partage rule, which allows players to get half of their lost wagers back on even money bets, is not present in American Roulette.

A roulette wheel consists of a solid wooden disk slightly convex in shape, with metal compartments arranged in a circular pattern around the perimeter. The compartments, referred to as frets or “canoes” by croupiers, alternately red and black and are numbered from 1 to 36 in a non-consecutive fashion. In addition to the numbers, a single green pocket marked 0 is present on European wheels. On American tables a second green pocket marked 00 is added, giving the game its distinct difference from its French counterpart.

The game begins when the dealer clears the table of the previous round and places chips on the betting mat, marking their precise location to indicate the bet being made. The player then spins the wheel and the white ball will fall into one of the numbered slots. Bets are placed by laying down chips on the table, with individual digit bets called inside bets and groupings of six or less called outside bets.

The game of roulette has many myths and misconceptions about how to win, with a multitude of strategies that claim to beat the math. A quick search on the internet will return millions of systems, some easy, some complicated, some well described, others not so much. But the fact is that there is no strategy that will consistently convert a sub-fair game into a profitable enterprise. The only surefire way to predict where the ball will land is by observing the previous results of the wheel and betting accordingly. For example, a light, small ceramic ball will make more revolutions on the wheel track and jump more unpredictably before landing than a big, heavier ivorine ball. However, this has no effect on the probability of hitting a particular number as the wheel does not retain memory.
