The roulette wheel is an elegant game that is easy to learn and play. It was invented in France, and caught the eye of English men who later brought it to the UK and America. But of course, it was after tweaking it to their liking. They would then introduce it to their respective markets successfully. As a result, roulette is found in all brick and motor casinos worldwide.
The game is pretty straightforward. First, find a table with just a few punters, that way you will have an easier time placing bets and retrieving your prizes. If you are relatively new to the game, ask the croupier to refresh your knowledge on the rules and etiquette of the game beforehand. However, asking beginner questions at a table full of regular players is quite embarrassing, so here are the basics rules.
Place you bet on time
Once you arrive at the table of your choice, wait for the current spin to end, and then grab your chance to place a bet. The amount you choose is entirely up to you. But you are advised to have a budget at hand to keep you in check (roulette can be highly addictive). When the ball starts spinning, you can still place a bet before the croupier says “no more bets.” Anything you do or say, after that announcement, is null and void.
How to collect your winnings
Ideally, the chances of winning roulette are equal, or close to -2.7% for European roulette, and much worse for the American version. But those are just statistics – people do get payouts. In case you are lucky, the coins are immediately handed over to you in preparation for the next spin. You do not have to worry about cheating here; it is practically impossible. But most importantly, enjoy the experience.
