The game of Roulette has been around in casinos for a long, long time and it is a popular game to play. Many individuals love to watch the little ball go around and round the wheel, waiting with bated breath to see whether the ball will land on their number that they have placed their bet on.
Some people believe that there are ways to make sure that their number is the one that comes up once the wheel stops, while others are sure that it all comes down to just luck.
There are different ways to place a bet whether you are playing Roulette online or in person. The most common bet to place is something called a straight bet.
A straight bet occurs when a player bets on a specific number. This is the bet that pays out the highest odds, usually 35 to one.
Another bet to place is to place your chips on the line between two specific numbers, and if the ball lands in the hole of either number, you will get a payout of usually 17 to 1 odds.
A third bet is the row bet where your chips are placed on a row of numbers and this will payout odds of about 11 to 1.
An additional way to bet is the corner bet where your chips are placed in the corner where there are four numbers and if any of the four of them hit, the odds of this payout are about 8 to 1.
There are still other types of bets, so if this is an online game that you favor playing for real money, take the time to research and know all about the game.
There are two different types of Roulette game that an individual may choose to play; American and the European version.
The European game is said to give players much better odds at winning the game against the wheel, because the American wheel has a zero and a double zero and the European wheel does not.
While we are on the subject of the Roulette wheel, look out for places where the wheel seems to be wobbling or just plain not acting correctly, as in landing on the same slot over and over again.
If you are a frequent player of the online game that you choose, you will know if the online wheel is not performing the way it should and you need to bring that to the attention of the site’s administrator.
