Roullete is a casino game of chance that can be found in every casino around the world. It is a fast-paced, fun and easy game to learn for beginners but has enough depth for serious betters. Correctly guessing which number or type of bet the ball will land on when the dealer spins the wheel is how you make money at roulette.
A solid wooden disk slightly convex in shape is the roulette wheel, with thirty-six compartments painted alternately red and black. A green one carries the sign of 0, while on American wheels two additional green compartments have the signs of 0 and 1.
Players may place bets on specific numbers, groupings of numbers, colors (red and black or odd and even) or on various propositions such as high-low, red-black, first, second and third dozen, etc. Unlike many other casino games, the player’s wagered chips are not removed when a bet is won, but remain on the table to be re-bet on the next round. This feature gives the game its distinctive sense of mystery and mystique, which has given rise to fanciful theories regarding its invention by the 17th-century French mathematician Blaise Pascal or by Dominican monks.
