The Art of Playing Roulette
Roulette is one of the most popular casino games played by many people worldwide. Roulette is also known as “The World” since more than six billion people are familiar with it. The interesting part about Roulette is that there are a lot of variations of the game that can be played.
As what have been mentioned above, Roulette is named after a wheel. In some casinos it has been called a two wheel or three wheel, but in real life, it is played with four wheels. It can either be played on a Roulette layout or on a regular Roulette table. A Roulette layout is a table used for playing the game, and is located inside a casino or in a special building dedicated for the purpose. It is where most Roulette games are played.
In a regular Roulette table, players may place their bets and take their time while waiting for the right combination to occur. For a Roulette layout, a dealer places the winning combination onto the Roulette wheel and then spins it. The Roulette wheels come in different colors and designs, based on the countries where the game is originated. Players may place their bets on the type of color they see on the wheel.
In a Roulette layout, there is only one wheel, so players need to look carefully at it to determine the winning number. Sometimes, the winning number is revealed for a few seconds or even for a minute or two. There are other ways to decide the winning number, however. When a player places his bets, he can choose to either call, raise or fold – the bets depend on the positions of the chips when the dealer spins the wheel.
In European Roulette, the house has the highest odds in terms of betting. It is important to note that in European Roulette, the name of the house is also called the “house” and not the “table.” European Roulette, as its name suggests, plays out in European casinos, and thus the names of the game are written out in French, German and Spanish. There is no such thing as single zero in European Roulette. “Zoui” is the plural of “zero.”
A Roulette layout is typically drawn up in four distinct versions. The most popular version is the traditional French layout, in which the numbers on the wheel are arranged in a left to right diagonal pattern. When the bettor places his bet, the wheel faces in the same direction. If the bettor wants to make a winning bet, he must match the numbers in the opposite direction of the wheel (on the left) with those of the winning hand. The traditional French layout is referred to as “The Charade” because it usually involves the river card. There are variations of the traditional French layout, including the trifecta, but they do not include the river card.
