The basic rules of Roulette
Division of the playing wheel
The name Roulette comes from the French word “roulette”, which means “small wheel”. It is a rotating device consisting of 2 concentric wheels of different dimensions. The first, larger wheel is still and the second, rotating smaller wheel is divided into 37 (for French roulette) or 38 (for American roulette) numbers. These numbers are in different colours – in black and red, zeros are green. The croupier releases the ball onto a larger stationary wheel against the rotation of the smaller wheel, and it is furiously going around. After a while, the ball stops in the numbered smaller part of the wheel. Now we know the winners and the losers!
Do you know the difference between the French and American roulette? It is simple! We will find the difference, especially in the division of playing wheel. The French roulette has got the smaller rotating wheel divided into 36 parts + one zero (0), together it is 37 parts. The American roulette has got the playing wheel divided into 37 parts + two zeros (00), together it is 38 parts.
Rule of the game and betting options
The goal of every online player who decides to play the online Roulette is to guess the winning number correctly. Which one is it? The winning number is the number, which the ball stops at when the croupier releases the ball into the playing wheel. You can bet not only on the number but also on colour. Let’s look at it together!
In the game, a roulette table with a gaming canvas for players is used. In the case of the French roulette, we can find 37 numbers from 0 to 36 in 12 rows and three columns on the canvas.
There are two areas for betting on the canvas – inside and outside. The space for inside bets can be used for betting on individual numbers, for example, 0 to 36 (French roulette). On the other hand, outside bets can be used for combined bets. In practice, this means that we can bet on colour and numbers, or on the column of twelve numbers. In Roulette online casino, the outside bets are usually preset, so you only need to select one of them.
