How to Play Roullete

Roullete is one of the world’s most popular casino games, and it has provided glamour, mystery and excitement to casinos since the 17th century. The game is relatively simple to learn, but it offers a surprising depth of strategy for serious players. Correctly guessing the color or grouping of a number can reap significant rewards.

Roulette consists of a round table with a spinning wheel. The wheel has a rim and 36 compartments, painted alternately red and black. A green compartment, called a “zero” on European wheels and a double-zero on American ones, separates the colored segments. Each spin of the wheel produces a random number. A player’s bets are placed on a section of the table and, if the bet wins, the winning chips are cleared from the table and paid to the winners.

The table carries a placard showing the minimum and maximum bets allowed. A player should set a budget before playing and always play within it. It is also a good idea to start with a small wager and gradually increase it. It is best to avoid betting in the “street” (rows of numbers) or individual digits, as these bets are more expensive and less likely to win.
