When you start playing Roulette you need to know its basic rules and that they may vary depending on the type of Roulette you choose to play.

Know the different Roulette rules

In Roulette you will find lots of opportunities to make money, that’s why this game is so popular and one of the most wanted by players. It was already a success in traditional casinos and with the emergence of the online casinos, Roulette gained even more fans. In this game you will find a wheel where the ball is placed to spin and gives a result. Also there´s a rug with a wide range of bets where you can place your chips.

Each type of bet has its chances of winning and in some cases the difference is so great that it leads players to prefer bets that pay 50/50.

There are two large groups of bets: Inside and Outside bets. Inside bets are represented by numbers. Outside bets are placed outside the number grid, i.e. they don’t cover specific numbers. Let’s get to know the roulette table and the different types of bets. Do you know which Roulette bet is most popular? It’s the color bet, Red or Black, because it’s a 50/50 bet and you’re more likely to win. All bet types have the same minimum bet amount and this amount varies according to casinos rules.

Roulette is no different from other casino games when it comes to seeing the odds. However, there is a big advantage in Roulette where the casino can get all or almost all bets. This advantage is called the green color, which in European Roulette is 0 and in the American Roulette is 0 and 00. Unless you have bet your chips in these slots, and if the ball lands there, all bets placed on the table are lost bets.
