Home » How to play Roulette

Roulette is a game where a player places a bet on a number, groups of numbers, even numbers, odd numbers, high numbers, low numbers, or on color – red or black.

After a bet is placed, a croupier spins a wheel in one direction and the ball in the other direction. The ball eventually gets into one of the 37, 38, or 39 pockets that are either red or black. The number of pockets depends on which type of Roulette I played. European Roulette has 37 pockets, American has 38 and Sand Roulette has 39.

The roulette table consists of two sections: the inside section and the outside section. The inside area holds 36 squares, each with its own number and they are either red or black. The outside area of boxes has sections of numbers – like odd or even, high, or low. At the very top of the Roulette table, there is a large zero or a double zero depending on the type of Roulette.

A player can bet on any of the squares on the table or on any combination of them.

Briefly, here are the basic steps:

  1. Place a bet.
  2. Spin the wheel.
  3. Get your result.

This all sounds easy but let’s focus on the winning strategies here: (how to win)C

Let’s review some of the typical situations playing Roulette:

Many people ask if a player can place a bet on red and black at the same time. Surely, it can be done but a player must think as the bets actually cancel each other out. Also, there is a green pocket playing, so there is always a chance to lose on both, red and black at the same time.

To get a better chance of winning Roulette, we advise you to go with outside bets. You win less but the odds are higher than with inside bets.

In the online casino, you place your bet by clicking the part on the board while in a real-life casino, you just place chips on a board and the croupier tells the table when betting is done and then spins the wheel. Playing online is better because you have all the time to think and decide.
