Understanding the rules to the game of roulette is easy, but it is easier when you play online. By playing online roulette you have the entire internet at your disposal, so instead of having to try and remember all of the rules while you are at the casino you can simply look them up as you go. Here’s a general overview of how the game is played just in case you haven’t memorized them all yet.
Roulette consists of a roulette wheel with numbers and colors displayed around it’s edges, the numbers go from 0-38(although some games only have 37 numbers) and the colors are always two different colors, traditionally they are red or black. The wheel is spun and a small ball is placed on the spinning wheel. This tosses the ball around randomly. Once the wheel stops turning the ball will have settled into a slot, the slot will have a color and number, the point of roulette is to guess where the ball will be after the wheel has stopped.
Bets are placed before the wheel stops and depending on whether or not you win your bet and what kind of bet it was you will win some odd sum of money. Some wheels have two 0’s. The 0 is the worst number for the ball to land it, a 0 means that all players lose their bets and the house rakes in the money. The 0 makes is possible for the casinos to consistently win money running roulette tables. Stay away from tables with two 0’s if you want to increase your odds at winning.
Payouts very depending on what kind of bet is made, there are inside bets and outside bets.If high payouts are what you are looking for than inside bets are just for you, they are very risky buy can offer very high returns. Outside bets are much easier to win but the payout isn’t impressive compared to the inside bets.
Inside bets are usually bets that the ball will land on a specific number or a small pool of numbers. Outside bets are usually bets that the ball will end up on a much wider amount of option, like the color red or the color black for example.
