Roulette is the invariable symbol of the casino. This gambling game is considered the "king of casino games". When and by whom the game was invented, no one knows for certain. According to one version, it was invented by Blaise Pascal. Other sources say that roulette originated in China. Be that as it may, at the beginning of the 19th century, it traveled all over Europe and ended up in the United States. This is how gambling became famous and popular.
European Roulette consists of two elements:
The rotating wheel is delimited into 37 sectors. They are randomly numbered from 1 to 36. Another sector is zero.
The playing field is also marked in a certain way. It has 36 cells, the numbers in which are arranged in 3 rows. The numbers in the cells are numbered in ascending order. There is also a separate sector for betting on "zero". On the sides there are fields for outside bets.
Types and differences
There are two main types:
The European roulette is slightly different from the American version. The main difference is the absence of "double-zero". Otherwise, the differences are as follows:
Another important difference is chips (chips). The situation with them in American roulette is simpler, but in European roulette there is confusion. The fact is that the player in the American version makes bets with chips with a special pattern and a separate color. Based on these features, it can be determined that these chips belong to a specific roulette table. This helps prevent fraud. In a European game, the value of each chip corresponds to the specific value in the given casino. As a result of this situation, both casinos and players are often confused.
The principle of the game
The gameplay begins with a call to the dealer to place bets. The players on the field place their chips. Then the dealer announces that all bets have been placed. At this point, the roulette wheel has already been launched. The ball is launched in the opposite direction to the rotating wheel. As soon as the ball is in the cell, the dealer will announce the winning number. He fixes it on the field of play and collects income. The profit in the casino comes in the form of losing bets. After that the croupier pays out the winnings. This happens in the following order: risky bets first, after "odds".
Rules of the game
Many people think that the rules of gambling are too complicated. In fact, the rules of European roulette are simple if you understand them.
When playing in a casino with a live dealer or online, no more than 8 players can be at the table at the same time. They all play against the casino. In the case of the online version, against the program.
The croupier monitors the process of the game and the implementation of all the rules. It has a number of tasks:
Purpose of the game
Each player at the table tries to guess the number of the cell, into which the ball will fall during the rotation of the wheel. A smart bet will enrich you.
People who play European roulette choose different ways and strategies to win. Some use exclusively mathematical calculation, the second rely on intuition, and still others combine both options.
It should be noted that there is not a single mathematical model for winning at European roulette. No system will provide you with a regular income from the game. Each has its flaws. But knowing them and developing your inner flair, you can significantly increase the chances of winning.
The following types of bets can be made in the game:
Neighbor bet - chips are placed on an additional field. The selected number becomes one of 5 numbers on which the bet is placed. The game involves adjacent numbers - two on each side. The total bet amount is divided into 5 equal parts, after which each of the 5 bets is played as an independent bet.
There are also these types of bets:
Their principle is that the bet covers a certain number of numbers, and the size of the bet is divided by the n-th number. One bet is placed on a specific number, and the others close splits, or all bets close splits.
