The Basics of Roullete

Roullete, or roulette for short, is a casino game of chance in which players wager on the outcome of a spinning wheel. The game originated in France during the early 18th century and became one of the most popular casino games in Europe. Its popularity spread to other parts of the world and it is now widely played at online casinos and land-based gambling establishments around the globe.

The game of Roullete begins when a croupier (that’s what you’d call a dealer in French) clears the table and announces “No more bets.” The players then place their chips on a betting mat that is positioned over the numbered slots of a spinning wheel. Once all bets have been placed, the croupier will spin the wheel and then toss the ball into a pocket marked with a specific number. If your number is the winner, then you’ve won.

A Roulette wheel consists of a solid wooden disk slightly convex in shape, with thirty-six metal partitions or frets that surround the perimeter. These compartments, referred to as pockets by roulette croupiers, are painted alternately red and black and are numbered nonconsecutively from 1 to 36. On European-style wheels a 37th compartment, painted green, carries the number 0; on American tables two extra green compartments on opposite sides of the wheel carry the numbers 00.

Depending on how you choose to bet, there are a variety of different payouts for your winning bet. You can bet on individual numbers, groupings of numbers, the color of a number’s stripe, whether it’s odd or even, and more. Some bets, like the high/low or dozens bet (called passe et manque in French) require you to place your chips on the first or last dozen of the roulette layout. Other bets, such as the single-number or column bet, are known as outside bets because they’re placed on the outside of the layout.

Before the wheel starts to spin, the croupier will give you a set of colored roulette chips which represent the value of your buy-in. Between each spin you’ll give the dealer your chips and he or she will place a marker on the winning chip to indicate its value. In addition, some bets are considered “parisiens” or ‘French bets’ because they’re based on groups of numbers instead of individual digits.
