Knowing a lot about this game would help improve your chances of winning when you are playing roulette making the game more exciting than it already is.
Whether it is paid or free, roulette is a casino game that relies so much on luck. Derived from a French word, roulette literally means ‘little wheel’ in English. Roulette players try to choose which numbers, number combinations and colours of red/black would yield winning results. To play the game, a dealer tries to spin a wheel in one direction and then spin a ball in the opposite direction in a circular track found at the edges of the wheel. Eventually, the ball would lose force and then drop in the wheel falling in one of the thirty-seven, for European table, or thirty-eight, for American table, numbered and coloured pockets. The winning player would be identified depending which colour and number of the pocket the ball dropped.
To play roulette, players have a lot of betting options to choose from. How they choose their bets would affect the probability of them winning in this game. An example of a bet that a player could use is the ‘outside’ bet wherein the player would just choose any colour, black or red, any number, odd or even, or any colour combinations. Another option is to do ‘inside’ bets wherein they would choose selected pockets based on the proximity on the layout or based on the specific number of the pocket where the ball would fall. Who wins the game depends in which pocket the ball would most likely fall.
What should be done when the winning colour or number is identified by the roulette wheel? For this situation, the dealer would need to mark the number or color in the roulette table. Once the marker is already in place, no player is authorized to place, change or get any bets from the roulette table. Then, the dealer would get all the losing bets, using a rake or his own hands, and identify the payouts of the outstanding outside and inside winning bets. Only after the dealer has finally finished calculating all the payouts can the dolly be removed from the board and the players could get what they won and bet again while the winning chips are being put on the board.
