Roulette is one of the most popular casino games in the world and along with blackjack is one of the most popular games for beginners too.
One of the main reasons that roulette has become so popular is that it is very easy for beginners to pick up on. The house edge is also very small in comparison to other forms of gambling such as Craps or Baccarat. It has been calculated that the average house edge for European Roulette (0 – 36) is just 3%, where as American Roulette (00,0 – 36) it is 5%. Most beginners however only bet on the red/black or odd/even numbers which provides a 1:1 payout representing very close the true odds, thus the house edge is realistically only around 2%.
In terms of where the game of roulette originates, most people date the original version of the European game back to the 17th century in France. The name “roulette” actually means “little wheel” in French. The Premier League( Liga inggris) is already started. These leagues are among one f the most watches all over the world./ Every other person watches this because of the demand and excitement it has got. If you are a person who loves to invest in betting then you must do in the leagues. It can get you good money.
There are two versions of Roulette, with a European and US Roulette wheel. The original European game of Roulette contains only 37 numbers (0 – 36) which gives the player better odds of winning. The US version however includes an extra 00 (00, 0 – 36) giving it a total of 38 numbered pockets on the wheel. This naturally effects the odds and payouts of the game.
How to Play Roulette
Roulette is a fairly easy game for beginners to understand. As a player, you will wager money on which number/colour or group of numbers that you believe the ball will land on after being dropped onto a spinning wheel with numbered indents.
Once everybody places their bets, the croupier spins the wheel in one direction and drops the ball in the opposite direction as it bounces around the circumference of the wheel. Eventually, the ball will lose momentum and drop into one of the numbered indents on the outside of the wheel. Once this has happened, the dealer with take all of those losing bets and rewards winning bets with the correct payouts.
How to Bet in Roulette
o determine the winning number and color, a croupier spins a wheel in one direction, then spins a ball in the opposite direction around a tilted circular track running around the circumference of the wheel. The ball eventually loses momentum and falls on to the wheel and into one of 37 (in French/European roulette) or 38 (in American roulette) colored and numbered pockets on the wheel.
There are different types of bets that a player can make. You can bet on a single number, colour, odds/evens, corners, streets, baskets, splits and more. Each of these different bets contains a unique set of numbers on the roulette card.
The Street bet for example contains any 3 horizontal numbers such as 1,2, 3 or 4, 5, 6. It pays out at odds of 11:1 where as the true odds are 11.67:1.
A red/black or odd/even bet is the most popular bet made by beginners since it is very simple to follow. This pays out at odds of 1:1 however the house has a very small edge because the number 0 is neither odd/even nor red/black.
A Corner bet is another popular bet made by roulette and video roulette players which involves betting on a group of four adjacent numbers in a block (e.g. 1, 2, 4, 5) as seen on the roulette card. It has a payout of 8:1 and true odds of 8.5:1.
