Roulette: Everything You Need To Know

Roulette is a game of luck and chance that has stood the test of time. You might know the basics already, or you may be completely new to it all. Either way this article will hopefully help you get started with your roulette journey at Casino77!

The History Of Roulette

Nowadays the roulette table is a staple part of any casino and most people will be able to recognise one, however not everyone will know how they work or where they came from. In this section, the origin of the roulette table will be explained.

The roulette table was said to be created by chance – how ironic! A French inventor in the 1600s was attempting to build a perpetual motion machine but it ended up making the first ever roulette table by accident. In Paris, the roulette table had been in use from the early 1700s but in the 1800s the zero was added in order to give an advantage to the house. In the USA, they added another zero which gives the house even more of an advantage.

Today, the roulette table is a fan’s favourite in any casino or even online where there a lot of different variations to play.

How To Play Roulette

Roulette tables will consist of a wheel and a green cloth which is used as the surface in which players will place their bets on. Players will take turns to place their bets on what they believe the outcome will be, when everyone has had their chance to bet then the croupier will call out “no more bets”. This means that no more bets can be placed, and he will put the ball into play, any winning bets will be paid out when the ball stops in a slot on the wheel.

Betting On Roulette

Players may think just because there is only one ball and one wheel there may not be that many betting opportunities. However, there are various ways that you can win on a roulette table, this includes:

  • Straight Up (35/1) – Betting on which number you think will be the outcome (1-36).
  • Corner (8/1) – There are four corners, and you can select which one you think will be the outcome.
  • Column (2/1) – On the cloth there are three columns of numbers and this is where you can bet on which one ball will land in.
  • Dozen (2/1) – This is when you bet on a group of numbers (1-12, 13-24 and 25-36).
  • Odd/Even (1/1) – Betting on whether the number will be odd or even.
  • Red/Black (1/1) – Betting on whether the ball will land in a red or black slot.
