There are not so many roulette rules , so understanding and remembering them is a feasible task even for an absolute beginner in the world of gambling. During the game, a bet is placed on some number or a group of numbers, and if it (one of them) falls out, the player wins.
The roulette table consists of two parts: the playing field, on which the numbers for the bet are shown, and the wheel, on which the numbers fall. The playing field is divided into 36 sectors of red and black, and the 37th sector, which is called “zero”, is green . The playing field is divided into internal and external. Internal – these are all values that the player can bet on, and external indicators, by which the specified values are grouped, for example, even and odd numbers, red and black numbers, dozens, etc.
The numbers, both on the wheel and on the playing field, are not at all chaotic, as it might seem at first glance. The distribution of numerical values on the field and their colors determine the winning coefficient . You can place a bet on one or several numbers. Below we will tell you in detail about the different roulette odds.
After all bets have been placed, the dealer spins the roulette wheel in one direction and the ball in the opposite direction. The rotation of the roulette wheel stops and the ball, having finished its movement in one of the numbered slots, determines whether the bet is played.
Roulette table rules
The roulette table is the same for all versions of the game, except for American roulette, which has “double-zero” or “double-zero” , that is, the total number of slots on the wheel, as well as bet fields, is 38. In European roulette, the number of slots is 37 ( numbers from 1 to 36 and zero).
This small difference makes a big difference to the players. European Roulette is a game with one of the lowest casino income rates among all gambling games . This figure is only 2.7% . This means that, on average, 97.3% of all wagered funds are returned to the player. The American version of roulette, thanks to double zero, almost doubles the share of the casino – up to 5.26% .
In addition to the two classic types of roulette: European and American, you can also find French roulette , which has a slightly different playing field, and all its designations are written in French. Another variation is mini roulette , in which you can place bets on only 12 numbers.
