What is Roulette?
November 2, 2007
Roulette is not only one of the most enjoyable games in all of
gambling but also one of the most glamorous. You will often see
roulette scenes in motion pictures and often there will be the suave
leading man and or the beautiful leading lady trying their luck,
and usually winning, at the roulette wheel.
But roulette is not just a popular game depicted in the movies,
it is also one of the fastest growing online casino games and its
popularity is easy to understand as roulette offers something for
Roulette is based on a spinning wheel and a tiny ball that spins
counter to the wheel before eventually landing on a color/number
slot on the wheel. This also makes roulette a game in which games
and bets take place within the game itself. Gamblers can wager on
even money bets such as black/red, odd/even, or one-through-eighteen
and or nineteen-through thirty-six. Gamblers can also get three
to one odds on different sequences of numbers or also buy corners
of numbers for higher odds. You can also wager on a single number
for thirty-six-to-one odds.
The “juice” or “house edge” on roulette
is the green numbers zero and double zero. When the ball lands in
these two slots everyone is an automatic loser except those who
placed their bets on one or both of those squares. While American
roulette has those two numbers European roulette just has one single
zero and thus better odds for the player.
Online casino roulette is an exciting rush not to be missed!
