A smoky hall, men in suits, women in long dresses and a moving roulette wheel. Many of us have such an idea of the casino! Online roulette is undeniably one of the symbols of gambling. Nowadays, playing roulette is available at any time and for everyone in virtually every online casino. It is one of the most popular casino games. It owes its popularity to the simplicity of the rules, the option of playing live, but above all to the unique atmosphere that accompanies this game from the beginning of its history. Let’s take a closer look at the history and rules of roulette.
Types of roulette
Today 3 types can be distinguished:
- European roulette
- American roulette
- French roulette
In the case of European roulette, the roulette wheel has 37 squares – not consecutively arranged numbers from 1 to 36 and one green field with zero. This means that the casino is likely to win all of your bets is 2.7%. This is the oldest version of roulette. American roulette differs from European roulette with an additional zero field – 00. Thanks to this, the casino has a winning chance of 5.26%. In the American version, however, it is possible to bet on the zero field when you bet on three or five numbers.
The first step to starting the game is to exchange your cash for chips at the recommended site. Each player at the table has a different color of chips to avoid confusion. When you join a roulette table, you will see a roulette wheel with black and red pockets and a betting table. After the allotted time for betting, the dealer spins the roulette wheel and throws the ball in the opposite direction. This will of course be the case when you sit down at the live roulette table. In the case of online roulette it will be possible thanks to the random number generator. Depending on the type of roulette and the bets placed, after drawing a given range, you can either win or lose your bet.
