The Basics of Roulette and Roullete

Roulette (known in France as Roullete) is one of the gambling industry’s most beloved and universally beloved games, founded on pure chance. Players place their chips on a Roulette table and try to predict which slot the ball will fall into when the wheel spins; the game remains immensely popular at both online casinos and land-based gambling establishments around the globe.

A roulette wheel consists of a solid, slightly convex wooden disk featuring compartments numbered 1 through 36 on its rim painted alternately red and black – giving the house an advantage when using any version of this game. Furthermore, there may also be green pockets marked 0 that give an advantage to certain versions of roulette games.

Roulette features numerous types of bets that can be placed on groups or individual numbers, as well as two main categories of them – inside and outside bets – consisting of straight, split, corner (square) bets as well as street, line and donut bets. A unique element to Roulette betting system is that before spinning of wheel occurs players place their bets on special mats that correspond with specific bet types; once wheel has spun the dealer will place small ball into wheel which settles all bets when outcome has been revealed and settled bets are settled accordingly.

Roulette was first mentioned in the 17th Century. While various sources attribute its creation to various individuals (French mathematician Blaise Pascal and Chinese monks are frequently mentioned as creators), only after it was banned across Europe and North America did the wheel and layout become standardized and adopted for play as we know it today.

There are various variations of Roulette available, but European and French are the two best variants. French has an additional rule called la partage that reduces the house edge to just 1.35% – an improvement which makes playing strategy games more viable and competitive.
