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 everyone.

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!
