What is Roullete?

Roullete is a game of chance played by placing chips on the roulette table and spinning a wheel to determine the winning number or color. The game may be played by one or more players and there are many different types of bets. A player can place a bet on a single number, various groupings of numbers, red or black, odd or even, or whether the number is high (1-18) or low (19-36).

The roulette wheel consists of a solid wooden disk slightly convex in shape. Around its rim are metal partitions, called separators or frets, which form thirty-six compartments or pockets painted alternately red and black. A croupier, or dealer, explains the odds of each bet to players and then places the chips on the appropriate area of the table. There are two green compartments on American wheels, labeled 0 and 00.

Inside bets, which are placed on specific pockets or groups of pockets on the layout, have the highest house edge. However, some players claim to have a system that can overcome this disadvantage and make the game profitable.

Outside bets, which are based on the position of groups of numbers on the layout, have a lower house edge. However, they have a much smaller payout if you win.

The Line Bet/Three Number Bet/Sixline Bet: Also known as a transversal in French, this bet is made by placing your chip(s) to straddle the line between two rows on the layout. This bet pays out 17-1 if it wins.
