Roullete is a casino game in which players bet on a single number, various groupings of numbers, red or black, whether the number is odd or even, and whether the numbers are high (19-36) or low (1-18). The game is played at a table with one or more revolving dishes-like devices (roulette wheels) into which a small ball comes to rest after being spun by a croupier. Depending on the game variant and betting rules, players can also place bets on whether the resulting spin is a push or a win.
There are many roulette variations including American, European, and Live Roulette. Generally, novice players should opt to play European roulette since it offers magnified winning probabilities. It’s also a better choice than its American counterpart since the latter has a double zero pocket which skews the house edge.
The Roulette wheel consists of a solid wooden disk slightly convex in shape with a rim containing compartments (called frets or canoes by roulette croupiers) that are alternately painted in red and black and numbered nonconsecutively from 1 to 36. A green compartment carries the number 0. On European roulette wheels two more green pockets on opposite sides of the wheel carry the numbers 1 and 2. A croupier spins the Roulette wheel and places a puck or small symbolled object on the table to indicate that the game is between decisions. When a player wins their bets are paid in chips to the winner.
