How To Play Roulette
One of the most popular games played at a land-based casino is roulette. There is something about the environment that surrounds the table as the wheel is spun and the small ball is thrown onto the spinning wheel. Waiting to see if the ball will land in the numbered slot you chose so you will win is exciting stuff, especially as the wheel slows and everyone watches, so it’s no wonder that roulette is also as popular online as off.
But before you get to watch the wheel spin, the ball thrown, and that anticipation of where it shall land, you will need to make your bet on the roulette table, which has two definite sections.
● The outside section of the roulette table is home to pairs of bets for the colors Red or Black, Odd or Even, and High or Low. Each section will have different variations of bets that you can make.
● The inside of the roulette table lets players make bets on single numbers which are close to one another on the table. Other inside bets can be made in groups of up to six numbers.
As well as the two main sections of the roulette table, there is also an oval-shaped betting zone which is commonly known as the Racetrack. The bets made on the Racetrack are called ‘Call Bets’ as players can call out their bets to the dealer, saving them the time of having to place their chips on each number they want. These bets are also known as ‘Announced Bets.’
If you are new to the game of roulette, then perhaps trying one of the demo/free games on offer would be a good idea as they would teach you how to play, what variant you like as well as it being a great place to try out your favorite game’s strategies. Of course, you would not be able to bank any winnings, but you would feel far more confident when finally playing with some of your own, hard-earned cash.
Roulette Variants – Which Should I Play?
Besides the well-known European, French and American varieties of this age-old game, there are some other variants to try online which can add even more spice to your games.
● Multi-ball roulette allows players to play with up to 10 balls at once, this really does boost the game’s action; just imagine trying to follow each one as it slows and comes to rest on (hopefully) your number. Usually played in the European format, there are different groups of bets for this game too.
● Mini roulette is perfect for players who do not want to choose from many betting options. The game only has 13 slots which simplifies the game significantly.
● Multi-wheel roulette is played with up to 8 wheels simultaneously and plays in a similar fashion to the Multi-ball game.
Finally, we are going to look at the ‘Live’ roulette games on offer today. Live games take place in real-time and are streamed from a physical location straight into the comfort of your own home. Hosted by dedicated dealers/croupiers, these games are about as close as you are going to get to visit a physical casino and are well worth trying simply for the unique experience they offer.
