The roulette is one of the most popular casino games out there, whether in land-based or online casinos. You will be dealing with a roulette wheel, which is the focal point of play and players will gather around the wheel.
In this game, players will go head-to-head on the wheel as they must bet and play versus the house. So, this is not a game between two or more players, but the casino house itself.
The objective for playing roulette is to determine which number and the characteristics (such as low/high, even/odd number) of the pocket at which the ball lands after spinning the wheel.
The wheel is the most distinguishable prop used for playing a game of roulette. In the game of American roulette, there are different colored chips assigned to each player to determine who placed what bet. There is an average of 6-8 players for each roulette table, while there is a dealer who is responsible for spinning the game and moderates the game.
The game of roulette appears to be simple wherein players must use a special chip to guess where the ball will land at the end of each spin. The chips will also represent a player's bet for that particular game, and then the dealer spins the wheel in the opposite direction of the ball. The dealer will then take note of where the ball lands wherein he will collect all losing bets or pays for those who have won.
The Roulette Wheel in an online casino is typically 3 feet in diameter, but it will eventually depend on the resolution of your screen and its size. Each wheel comes equipped with 38 numbered pockets that line the entire perimeter of the wheel. All the numbers designated for each pocket are facing outward. Half of the 38 pockets are colored red, while the remaining half is colored black. Each pocket is alternating in color on the wheel.
The 0 and 00 pockets are placed across each other on the wheel, wherein each pocket is colored green. There are separators placed between each pocket and while most players think that all the numbers are placed randomly on the wheel, a closer examination will reveal otherwise.
The numbers placed across one another are each a number apart. Also, the odd numbers in red are usually placed across the next even higher number that is colored in black. All of the number when added together can either equal to 37 or 39.
