Roulette holds a central place in all casinos. For many it is also the emblematic game of casinos. It’s a very simple game and there are a few rules you need to know to get started. When you are comfortable with the few basic rules, you may want to go deeper into specific rules and the betting system. Since luck always smiles at the casino, it’s best to start practicing free roulettes before getting down to business and betting money.
How to play
Roulette is a wheel with numbers ranging from 0 to 36 and a steel ball. In a traditional casino, players sit around the gaming table and bet, the croupier activates the wheel, stops the bets and the ball lands.
It is when the ball has landed that the winner appears. In an Internet casino, the operation is more automatic, but the layout and feel are the same. We bet and press the button that will stop the wheel and designate the winner.
The most difficult bet to win is the single bet. It is also the bet with the best payouts. This bet is of course exciting, but many players choose bets that offer the greatest odds of winning. We call most of the bets according to their position on the game table. We bet on the color (red or black), a line (two numbers), one or two lines, a square, a group of numbers, on Odd or Even.
The different types of roulette
There are two main types of roulette: European roulette and American roulette.
American roulette has: double zero and therefore is a bit harder to beat than European roulette. Most gambling strategies therefore recommend playing European Roulette.
French roulette is another form of roulette and there are some special types of roulette on the Internet. French roulette is very similar to European with just a few small variations in terms of table layout.
The rules are the same but there are sometimes certain roulettes with very specific rules that make them more attractive. The surrender rule allows the player to keep half of his bet if he loses when the ball lands at zero. This rule applies to even bets. The En Prison rule works a bit like surrender: when the ball lands at zero, the player can choose to keep their bet for the next round. In any case, care must be taken to bet just to win.
