The rules of the game

The Roulette is so much loved by gamblers due to its simple rules. The game is played with a wheel and a small ball made of ivory. The wheel contains 37 or 38 cells. The ball rolling in the playing wheel falls down in a hole. The gambler who has made a bet on this number is the winner. The main opponent for every player participating in the game is online casino. At gaming tables meant for the Roulette, there are always displays with the results of the previous 10-20 spins.
They distinguish two kinds of the Roulette:

  • The American Roulette – there are 36 cells plus zero and double zero on the playing wheel;
  • The European Roulette – there are 36 cells and zero on the wheel.

I should notice that playing the European Roulette is more preferable, as the wheel contains only one zero. In this game, if zero occurs, the bets lose. Therefore, the European Roulette is quite an advantageous game.

IF YOU COME ACROSS A GAME WITH TWO MORE RULES THAT ENLARGE THE PLAYERS’ CHANCES, THIS IS THE FRENCH ROULETTE:

  • La Partage – in case zero occurs to a player, his bet on Even Chances loses half of the winning;
  • En Plein – if zero occurs to a player, his bets don’t lose, though they don’t win either. The bets stay on the field till the next spin. In case the bets win, they are paid in accordance with the understated coefficient.

Possible Bets

They distinguish eight bets in the Roulette with various payoff scales.
Inner Bets

INNER BETS ARE BETS MADE ON THE PLAYING FIELD. THEY DISTINGUISH FIVE TYPES OF THEM:

  • Straight – is the bet players make on a number from 1 to 36 or on zero. They put the dib right onto the number of the cell.
  • Split – is the bet made on two neighboring numbers on the field. In this case, the dib is put onto the line that separates the numbers 1, 2, 3 and zero.
  • Street – is the bet made on three numbers; the dib is put onto the outer border of the field, the border being common for the column containing the three numbers chosen by a player.
  • Square – is the bet made on four neighboring numbers; a player puts a dib onto the crossing point of the four numbers.
