What Roulette is and How It is Played

Are you curious as to what is the meaning of roulette and how the game works?If yes, then you’re in the right place and should find this article beneficial in one way or another.

Roulette, whether paid or free roulette, is a casino and gambling game. It is a French word which translates to “little wheel” in English.The game requires players to place bets on either: a number; a range of numbers; whether the number is even or odd; or between the colours red or black.The game works when a dealer spins a wheel in a certain direction and then spins a ball in a different direction in a circular track located just around the edges of the wheel.You would have already figured that the ball would stop pinning and eventually land on any of the thirty-eight American roulette pockets or thirty-seven European roulette pockets that are all specifically numbered and colored. The number or the color of the pocket where the ball would stop would then identify who wins in the game.

There are a number of betting options for players who choose to play roulette.For example, a player who chooses to bet on the ‘outside’ of the wheel will select bets based on whether the winning number is odd or even, the pocket colour, or based on larger positional groupings of pockets.On the other hand, if a player decides to place his/her bet on the ‘inside’ of the wheel, they’re left with the options of either selecting a small range of pockets based on their proximity on the layout or the exact number of the pocket the ball will land in.What a certain roulette player wins would depend on how productive his hunches are in guessing the kind of bet he would have.

What would be the outcome if ever the winning number and color is decided by the roulette wheel?A solution that dealer uses for this case would be to mark the winning color or number in the layout of the roulette table.The rule is, when the marker is on the table, no players may place bets, collect bets, or remove any bets from the table.The dealer will then sweep away all other losing bets either by hand or rake, and determine all of the payouts to the remaining inside and outside winning bets. When the payout has been computed, somebody would take the dolly away and that is the only time that the players can get a hold of their winnings and start placing new bets with the winning chips are still on the board.
