Few games can bring out the breathless anticipation, as well as
the feel of glamour, as can roulette. Roulette is one of the most
popular forms of gambling, either on site or online and its popularity
is easy to understand.
Roulette is the famous game often depicted on movies and television
in which the spinning wheel and steel ball clash counter clockwise
as the ball spins around the wheel numerous times before slowing
down and finally landing in a slot that is both numbered and colored.
Roulette has even money bets on colors black or red, numbers odd
or even, numbers high or low, or you can even select certain squares
of the number board that would equal even money action. You can
also bet in variations of three to one odds by taking such wagers
as one through twelve, thirteen through twenty-four, or twenty-five
through thirty-six. Beyond that, you can bet on an individual number
or a small group of numbers or you can even wager on the dreaded
zero or double zero green squares, which provide the house edge.
You will hear the term “European roulette” and that
is where there is only one green zero slot. Some online casino roulette
games have European type rules in which you only lose HALF of your
bet if the ball lands in green.
While there are numerous strategies and money management systems
employed and written about regarding roulette, the one thing you
do not want to do is participate in what is known as the “Martingale
Theory” in which you continue to double up on even money bets
until they hit. Many a gambler has gone broke on that absurd assumption.
