How to Play Roullete


Roullete, or roulette as it is commonly known to casino-goers worldwide, has offered glamour, mystery and excitement since its inception in the 17th century. It is easy enough for novices to pick up and play yet also provides a surprising level of depth for serious gamblers. In addition to its high payouts, it is easy to handle winning bets and to make your bankroll grow.

The game is played with chips which are deposited on a special betting mat before the wheel is spun. Bets may be made on a single number, various groupings of numbers, the color red or black, whether it is odd or even, or if the numbers are high (19-36) or low (1-18). When a wager is placed correctly it will win. Losing bets are cleared off the table before the next spin. Winning bets, however, remain the player’s property and in the absence of a request to the contrary will be left up for a possible win on the next spin.

A croupier (dealer) operates the game. The roulette wheel consists of a solid wooden disk slightly convex in shape. Around its perimeter are metal partitions called separators or frets with thirty-six compartments, painted alternately red and black, numbered 1 through 36. There are also two green compartments on American wheels bearing the 0 and 00 symbols.

When a bet is placed the dealer places a marker on the winning number. The dealer then pays the winners and clears losing bets off the table. The process then repeats.

Before placing a bet, you should decide what your total stake will be and how much you are willing to risk. This is especially important if you are playing at a casino with fixed minimum and maximum bets. It is also a good idea to determine a budget and stick with it.

Gambling is a fun and exciting activity, but it’s not something you can control with any degree of certainty. The best strategy is to have fun, socialize with fellow players and enjoy the thrill of taking a chance. Try out different strategies such as the Martingale or Fibonacci system but remember that this is a game of chance, not skill. Don’t let your emotions get ahead of you and you will be able to enjoy the game more fully.
