When you walk into a casino, there are a few staples that seem to be ever-present. You’ll see poker, blackjack, baccarat, craps and roulette, along with a good variety of slot games – and the same is true for online casinos. Here is a short guide on one of our favourite casino staples, which happens to be roulette.
Roulette is an easy game to get started on because the learning curve is not very pronounced. That’s not to say that the game is simple, it just isn’t difficult to learn. In fact, there are many quality guides found online that walk you through the entire process of playing roulette successfully.
The basics of playing Roulette are quite simple. The odds range from 1-37 to 1-38 depending on which version of the game you are playing (American or European) and within that range, you can set yourself up with a full range of bet types that each come with a different level of risk and reward.
The Roulette table is broken up into sections that include different amounts of numbers depending on which ones you select. For example, if you choose to bet on either black or red you have close to a 50-50 chance of hitting (minus the house edge), and when you bet on evens or odds, the same is true. It is also possible to bet on a single number, a pair of numbers, four at a time, thirteen at a time, and many other interesting combinations. Basically, the more numbers you bet on the easier it is to win but the lower the payout will be. When you adopt more risk, the wins are far more exciting.
Whether you are looking for a table at a land-based casino, a computer-generated game at your favourite online casino, or a Live Casino table brought to you by real dealers working in actual casinos, you are sure to have a great time.
