  • Back to the Classics: A Beginners Guide for Roulette

    Roulette is one of the most popular and famous casinos games, it was created by the French mathematician Blaise Pascal way back in the 17th century. The beauty of this game is that is very simple, all you have to do is bet on the table predicting the number where the ball that spins in the roulette will land.

    In this article we’ll explain the basic concepts of this game so you can enjoy it online and win real money playing roulette in some of the most spectacular online casinos. The roulette has numbers from 1 to 36 and a zero distributed in a particular manner, a ball, and a cloth called layout to make the bets on.

    To start the game the ball is thrown into the spinning roulette, in a matter of seconds the ball will stop on a number and that will the winner. The bets are made by the players before the ball is put to spin. The croupier is part of the casino’s staff that is in charge of putting the ball on the wheel and manage the game.

    The dynamics of the game are pretty simple, it starts with a round of bets that ends when the croupier gives the order, in that moment the gamblers put their chips in the numbers that they feel or think that are going to be the winners. The ball is thrown into the wheel and the winner is determined, then the croupier will collect the chips that did not win and then pay the winner.

    Roulette has been around for some time now and there have been some variations to the original game. The most famous version are the French and the American. The version from France is the one that is played in Europe, while the American one can be found in the land based casinos in the United States.

    The difference between these two is the numbers in the cylinder of the roulette, the French one has numbers that go from 1 to 36 and the zero; while the American version includes one more number, a double zero. This means that in the American version the gambler has less chances to win. Those casino owners in Las Vegas aren’t in the losing business, that is for sure.

    With this basic information you are ready to hit any roulette table, be it land based or in an online casino. We wish you lots of happy winnings!
