Roulette is a classic casino game in which a small ball is spun around a wheel with numbered pockets. Players place bets on where they think the ball will land on the wheel, and the ball is spun by a croupier, or dealer. The ball eventually lands in one of the numbered pockets, and players win if their bets match the pocket where the ball lands.
There are two main versions of Roulette: European Roulette and American Roulette. In European Roulette, the wheel has 37 numbered pockets, with numbers 1-36 and a single 0 pocket. In American Roulette, the wheel has 38 numbered pockets, with numbers 1-36, a single 0 pocket, and a double 00 pocket.
Here are the basic rules for playing Roulette:
- Players place their bets on the table, which is marked with a layout showing the numbered pockets on the wheel.
- The croupier spins the wheel and releases the ball onto the spinning wheel.
- Players win if their bets match the pocket where the ball lands.
- If the ball lands in a pocket with the number or color that a player has bet on, they are paid according to the odds for that bet.
- The croupier collects the losing bets and pays out the winning bets.
There are many different bet types that can be placed in Roulette, and the specific rules for each bet may vary depending on the version of the game being played.
