Roulette, the game of chance
Dec 1, 2007
Roulette is one of the world’s most popular games of chance
and has been a staple of casino gambling for as long as anyone can
remember. Roulette has not only maintained its popularity in the
online casino revolution over the past decade but has actually GROWN
in popularity and stature during this world wide gambling transition
from in-person/on-site casino gambling to online casino gambling.
Roulette is the glamorous game that you have seen depicted in the
movies numerous times in which a steel ball swirls counter clockwise
on a spinning wheel before finally landing in a slot that is both
colored AND numbered.
American Style roulette has thirty-six numbers that you can bet
on along with BOTH a zero and a double zero which are on green squares.
The numbers one-through-thirty-six are either red or black in square
color. European roulette has just one zero, which cuts the house
edge in half on even money bets such as black or red, odd or even,
high or low.
There are several different ways to wager on roulette outside of
those even money wagers just mentioned as gamblers can wager on
a single number, a group of numbers, or take three-to-one odds on
a group of twelve numbers offered on the board.
Many players will also take a contrarian betting strategy at the
roulette wheel and bet against most of the traffic, such as betting
high if most of the other players are betting low, or red if the
crowd is on black. Other players like to wager on the green zero
number(s), in essence, betting on the house!
