Roulette Brief History

Roulette was first played in France, way back in the 1700's. Since then people around the globe have adopted the game and it has sky rocketed in to being one of the most popular casino games around. One can attribute the popularity of the game simply down to the simplicity of it. It takes just minutes to learn all the rules and then provides fun and entertainment for years.

Basic Rules

Roulette is a game where players place bets on different outcomes. These different outcomes could be anything from the color, the number, whether it’s odd or even, high or low.

The croupier takes the bets and then spins the roulette wheel. The wheel randomly lands on a number and bets are paid out when the player wins.

Here are two different types of roulette wheel. The American roulette wheel with 38 slots and the European roulette wheel with 37 slots. The American roulette wheel has two green slots and the European roulette wheel only has one. The casino edge is therefore greater on the American roulette wheel than the European one. So we therefore recommend that all players only play on the European version of the game.

The House Advantage

Many people claim to have a roulette system that beats the house. That is not true, the house has a mathematical advantage on every spin and therefore it is impossible to beat the house at roulette in the long term. Several systems may allow the player to win for a certain period of time, but in the long run, sadly the casino will always have an edge.

On a single 0 roulette wheel the house advantage is approximately 2.7%. On double 0 roulette wheel the house advantage is a whopping 5.26%. (7.9% when players make a 5 number bet).
