Roulette is one of the most widely played casino games in the world, and it is now online for many to enjoy. In the game a ball is spun around a wheel. In order to win the game you must accurately guess which of the pockets (numbered) the ball will reach. The amount of money won depends on the payout for that winning bet and is based on the type of bet placed.
There are a number of ways to bet, so this is highly variable. The game is very much one of chance, and there is no skill involved at all. Understanding all of the various types of bets is the hardest part.
- There are five different types of inside bets: straight up, split, street, square, and corner bets.
- There are five different types of outside bets: low or high, black or red, odd or even, columns, and dozens.
- Once all bets are placed the ball is tossed into the wheel the opposite direction of the way the wheel is spinning.
- The number that the ball lands on is the winning number.
- Any bets not matching the winning number gets removed. For example, if the winning number is black thirteen, then anyone with bets on thirteen, odds, or black would be left on the table.
