Roulette is a casino game that everyone can try their hand at lady luck. It originated from France in the 18th century and has been extremely popular ever since. The game is purely a game of chance and cannot be manipulated mathematically. In Roulette, a ball is dropped on a spinning wheel with 37 pockets. The pockets are numbered 1 to 36 and depict ranges of numbers, ie black/red, odd/even, 1st 2nd 3rd 12, 1 to 18, 19 to 36. The object of the game is to guess which number the ball will next disappear into. A player can bet money on a single number or multiple numbers. The more numbers the player plays, the lower the chances of winning. Since the numbers are random, players can avoid certain numbers that carry a high payout, in order to lower the odds.
When playing, it is important to focus on the table layout. Since the dealer is at the end of the game, it is easy to get caught up in the flow of the game and lose focus of what the stakes are actually supposed to be.
The cards are numbered as follows: Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12. The suits also have their corresponding value: Spades, Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds. For example, the Ace is associated with Spades, the King with Hearts, the Queen with Clubs and the Jack with Diamonds.
In European roulette, there is only one “0” space on the board. In American roulette, there is a “00” space and the numbers are arranged in random as if the players were at a casino slot machine. Each number is also assigned a letter grade, between 0 and 36. American roulette wheels generally have “0” and “00” slots on the board, but the numbers are still numbered. This makes the wheel more difficult to win, since the player will have more chances to be killed by the 36 numbers that make up American roulette.
