When you want to play a game, you should know what equipment you will be needing
and what you will be using to play the game, or at least I think that would
be a good start. You don't have to worry too much about bringing anything with
you when you want to play roulette, other than yourself and a willingness to
have a great time. I guess the latter of the two are more up to you, but you
will enjoy the game a lot more if you are wanting too (personal opinion). Other
than that you have to learn the roulette table and the roulette wheel. I will
be covering both of these, but will cover the roulette wheel on another page.
I recommend you read both.
Ok, so if you are ready, the first thing you are going to notice is that the
roulette table is all red and black except for two out of place green numbers,
0 and 00. These are only found on an American Roulette table and increase the
house advantage by decrease the odds of red or black hitting every spin. The
numbers go from zero all the way up to thirty-six.
If you look at the roulette table you will also notice it is setup to accommodate
several different bets giving the player more variety and risk. Obviously the
higher the risk the higher the reward, such is the case in all casino games.
Some of the more played bets are the Red/Black bet, which is betting on just
black or red. Your odds are just under 50 % here because of those two green
zeros (don't ever forget the effects of those two little guys). Another similar
bet to this is an odd even bet, this too excludes the zeros on the board. You
should be now that those little green zeros are not always your friend. Actually
a lot of people prefer a European style game because it only has one zero, thus
decreasing the house advantage.
You will notice the table is split into to separate sections, these are called
inside and outside bets. What I have been explaining to you so far are outside
bets. So, obviously you are asking yourself, what are inside bets. Well inside
bets are more adventures, I say this because they have fewer odds, or most of
the do, and for that little sense of adventure you will get rewarded if you
happen to win. All of the numbers can be bet on and if you chose the right number
on the right spin you will be paid thirty-five to one. What this means is, you
will be paid back your money, plus you will get thirty-five times more your
original bet. Not a bad haul if you ask this guy.
Just so you know and are still unsure of whether you are ready for the game,
I had never heard or read anything about roulette when I first started to play
and I picked the game up within a matter of minutes. You too will develop a
strategy and playing style after time, so all that you have to do is just try
it. You know the basics now and with some practice you will become a pro. I
really believe with what you have on this site you will be more than ready to
enjoy your next experience at the casino playing some roulette.
