Roulette is a casino game that have entertained me for many years. As I’m sure you know, it is one of the most common games when it comes to online gambling and one of the true classic games that have been around for ages and never really go out of style. In my opinion, this game is best enjoyed in a real casino. Personally, I think of it as a rather glamorous activity, and you just feel right playing it in a real casino wearing a nice suit enjoying a good drink. However, roulette works just as fine when it’s played online. Technological development has made it possible for online game developers to create simulations of the game that are nearly as good as the real casino itself.

These days, a lot of casino websites even offer roulette at a “real table” although you are at home by your computer. If you ever see a Live-casino feature at your online casino, I strongly urge you to try it out. Here, you will get a video-link to a real roulette table, with actual dealers spinning the wheels for you. This is as close as you are going to get to playing real roulette without leaving your home!

So, what is roulette then? You’ve probably seen then game featured in countless movies and on TV. The game consists of a spinning wheel that is numbered 1-75, as well as a betting board where players can place their bets. A ball is then thrown in to the spinning wheel, which has a slot for each number. The goal, of course, is to predict in which slot the ball will finally come to rest in.

There are several types of bets that you can make, and I won’t go in to them all here, but I’ll quickly explain the two most common bets. First of all, you can choose to place you be on a certain color. The roulette wheel’s slots are colored in either black, red or green. There are 37 red slots, 37 black slots and one green slot. In other words, if you bet on either red or black, you’re chances of being right is roughly 50 percent. The reason that the green slot is there, is to give the casino an edge over the player, as you automatically lose when the ball ends up on the green slot. As I’m sure you already know, all casino games are designed like this – There’s always a slightly higher chance that the dealer will win over the player than the other way around. The other is to bet on a certain number on the wheel. Of course, when doing this the chances of you ending up winning decreases quite drastically. However, the reward for this type of bet is much higher.

If you are new to casino gaming, roulette is definitely the game I would choose to start off with. It’s a real classic game, and sure to keep you entertained for hours. However, make sure to read up on some roulette guides before you start playing, so that you get a real good idea of how the game works.
