Roulette Casino Gaming
When you start out playing Roulette you have to kind of know how to play the game to your benefit. Without a strategy to this game you won’t get to far with it. As you go along in this section we will be going over a lot of information because there is a lot of casino betting to know about this game of Roulette. Did you know there is eleven different kinds of bets that you can make at a roulette table: a single number; groups of two, three, four, five, six, or even twelve numbers. There is a column of twelve numbers whether the number is odd or even; and whether the number is from 1 to 18, or 19 to 36. The most common roulette wheel found in U.S. casinos has 38 numbered compartments: the numbers 1 through 36 plus 0 and 00. Eighteen of the numbers are black and eighteen numbers are red. The numbers 0 and 00 are colored green. If these green numbers were not on the table, you would have an even chance of winning on red or black. The Roulette wheel is carefully laid out so that red and black compartments alternate, except at the green 00 position where both 1 and 27 are otherwise adjacent, and at the green 0 position where both 2 and 28 are otherwise together. The ball is controlled by a dealer, who propels it around a track at the upper section of the wheel’s housing while the wheel is actually spinning counter clockwise. Here is a fact for you did you know that a Roulette wheel actually weighs 100 lbs in a casino.
However, with playing online you really don’t need to know that but that could be a good trivial question to tell your buddies. The Roulette wheel is normally located at the end of one side of a long table where you start laying down your bets on random numbers to try your luck at that little ball to hit on your number. Also note as the wheel is spinning that you can still place bets until the dealer calls out no more bets. Once the ball has settled on a number the dealer pays out on the number that someone has placed a bet. Otherwise all other chips are removed from the table. Now if you don’t want to play just a lot of different numbers hoping that your number will hit. You have a variety of bets to place. A quick look at these bets are
- Place your bets on Even or Odd Numbers
- You can play a certain row of numbers which are divided into three rows
- Place bets on different rows of numbers 1st 12, 2nd 12 & 3rd 12 numbers
- Place bets on 1-18 or on 19 to 38
- Of course the notorious Red or Black Bet.
You may have walked by a Roulette table and have seen somebody walking out and stop and put down a quick $100.00 or more on Black or Red. This bet I would believe is a last desperation bet that is not always recommended if it is your last $100.00 to get you home!! Roulette players who consider themselves as experts, whatever that means, bet only the outside numbers. They believe that the long odds on the inside numbers can wipe out under-staked players early in a session if bets just aren’t hitting. There is some logic and reasoning for this with outside betting are certainly more conservative, and should allow players to increase their “staying power” at the table. So here are some actual facts regarding this questionable hard game, however overall I would say keep this game simple and learn the basics of the game before you start considering that you are a top notch Roulette Casino Player. There are many systems widely popularized today to help you pick the winning number or color, based strictly on an analysis of previous numbers. Keeping track of the wheel’s decisions with pencil and paper is a complete waste of time. Note the wheel has no memory. Previous numbers have no effect on future numbers. The odds are the same regardless of the scoreboard every time the little white ball drops. This is a must to know.
