What is Roullete?

Roullete, better known by its French name of Roulette, is a casino game in which players wager on which red or black-numbered compartment of a rotating wheel the small ball will rest when it eventually stops spinning. First introduced into European casinos during the late 18th century, this captivating gambling pastime offers players plenty of excitement, glamour, mystery, and drama all at once!

A roulette wheel consists of a solid wooden disk slightly convex in shape with parallel metal partitions called frets surrounding its perimeter. Thirty-six compartments painted alternately red and black are numbered nonconsecutively from 1 to 36; dealers refer to these compartments as canoes; on European wheels one green compartment represents zero while American wheels contain two green compartments which contain the sign for both zero and 00 respectively.

Bets can be placed on single numbers, groupings of numbers, red or black color scheme, odd/even number pattern and whether number is high/low. When players accurately predict where the ball will rest they win! Winning bets are paid out by a dealer who clears away losing chips before paying out winners.

An effective strategy in betting on outside bets (groups of numbers rather than individual digits) is to start out by placing cheaper outside bets that offer greater chances of hitting. Players often observe their opponents to learn from any secrets or lessons shared from them.
