Roullete – A Game of Pure Chance

A game of pure chance, Roullete is one of the few casino games that truly excites and delights players. The game starts when a croupier (that’s what the French call their dealers) throws a ball into a spinning wheel. The wheel bounces the ball around until it lands in a pocket that marks a number. If you made a bet on that number, you’ve won!

Roulette has many different bets, each with its own payout. Some bets are even money, meaning that if you win the house gives you half of your winning wager back. Other bets are called ‘outside’ and have a lower payout, but higher odds of winning. There are two types of outside bets: the Line Bet/Six Number Bet and the Dozens Bet.

The Line Bet is also known as a Six Number Bet or a Douzaine Bet. It’s a bet that the winning number will appear in either the first 12 numbers on the layout (1-18) or the last 18 numbers (19-36). The odds of this bet are 1-1. The Dozens Bet, which is also known as a Passe or Manche bet, is similar to the Line Bet but with a much higher payout. The odds of this bet are 2-1.

The roulette wheel is a circular disk with 36 compartments painted alternately red and black, plus a green 0 and a green 00 on American-style wheels. The rim of the wheel is lined with metal partitions, or frets, and these are separated by rows of small slots or pockets that mark the various bets. Each of these pockets is numbered and colored differently, so they are easily identified by a croupier. The croupier spins the wheel, and the ball is spun into a compartment where it lands to determine the winning bet. Throughout the centuries, roulette has been played in casinos, gaming dens and other gambling houses across Europe and America.
