Roulette is one of the most popular games of chance. You can play it in land-based casinos, and also on online casinos (live casino).

You must try to guess in which pocket the ball will stop. First you have to place your bet(s). Once the time is up, the ball is thrown into the roulette wheel. The ball will eventually come to rest in one of the numbered slots of the wheel. You win if your bet was placed on the right number. This is a very simple game of chance.

There are two kinds of bets in Roulette: inside bets and outside bets.

Here are the different inside bets:

  • Straight (1 number): you bet on a single number, by placing your bet directly onto in.
  • Split (2 numbers): place your chip on the line between two numbers, whether its the horizontal or the vertical one.
  • Street (3 numbers): place your chip at the bottom of a number’s column. This bet covers three numbers.
  • Square (4 numbers): place your chip at the intersection between 4 numbers.
  • 6 line (6 numbers): Place your chip on the line at the end of a column. It will cover six numbers (two columns).

Here are the different outside bets:

  • Columns: place your bet on one of these boxes «2 to 1», «1st», «2nd» or «3rd». The zero is not included in these bets.
  • Dozens: place your chips on the boxes « 1 – 12 » – « 13 – 24 » – « 25 – 36 » to cover one of the three dozens.
  • Red / Black: this one is self explanatory. Place your chips on the red or black box. With this bet, you cover all 18 black or red pockets. The zero is not included in this bet.
  • Odds/Evens: Place your chips on the Odd or Even box. It covers all 18 odds or even numbers.
  • Lows / Highs (1-18 / 19-36): This bet covers either the 18 first or the 18 last numbers of the roulette wheel.

 There is French Roulette (also called European Roulette) and American Roulette. French Roulette has 36 numbered pockets and one pocket with a single zero (0).

American Roulette has 36 numbered pockets, a single zero (0) and another pocket with a double zero (00). In addition to that the numbers on the wheel are not arranged in the same order.

This advice may seem obvious to some of you, but make the right decisions. Never go all-in on a colour or a single number because you have just lost multiple spins in a row. It is important to keep your goal in mind. This is a general rule that applies to all casino games. Bet sensibly and thoughtfully. Set your limits and when you reach your goal, stop playing.

Just because black was the winning number 15 times in the last 25 spins does not mean that red or green will not be next. You should not rely blindly and solely on these statistics. Whatever happens mathematically, if there is a long series of blacks, red will eventually come back to balance the percentage on the long term. This is called the equilibrium law in mathematics.
