About Online Roulette
The game of roulette is the oldest casino game still in existence, it has been
around in one form or another for close to 300 years. (Not online roulette
of course :)
Roulette is the most popular casino game in Europe, but is not as popular in
North America. The greater acceptance of the game there is likely due to the
much lower casino edge (4 times less than the casino edge in U.S. casinos) as
well as cultural differences.
The game is played by rolling a small ball in one direction inside a wheel,
which spins in the opposite direction. When the ball comes to rest on the wheel,
that slot is the winning number. You win or lose depending on the wager(s) you
have placed prior to the spin.
The wheel has 36 slots on it, one half are colored red and the other half are
colored black. The red and black alternate around the wheel. The wheel also
contains a zero slot (and often in North America a double zero slot) colored
green. Single zero games are played in Europe and can be found in some U.S.
casino's, if possible play them instead of the double zero machines as they give
better odds to the player.
There are many ways to wager in roulette, and many systems have been devised in
an attempt to increase the odds in favour of the player. If you think a system
will increase your odds there are many different systems in existence that will
tell you how to bet systematically in the belief that you can increase your
odds. You can play using one of the
available or just bet on hunches to select what number or series of numbers to
