Roullete Basics


Roullete is a game of chance that has long been an integral part of many casinos, both land-based and online. It was first played in the late 1700s and quickly spread worldwide. While there are several variations to this simple game, all offer a similar gameplay and a great deal of excitement.

Players place bets by placing chips on the betting mat in front of them. Then the croupier throws a ball into a spinning wheel with numbered pockets. When the ball stops in one of those pockets, that number will be the winning number. Players can then collect their payouts, or risk their money and try again.

There are a number of bets that can be placed on the roulette table, including inside and outside bets. Outside bets are a safer play, as they cover groups of numbers and have a lower house edge. They are also generally a little cheaper to make, which makes them good for those who have smaller bankrolls or are new to the game.

Inside bets, on the other hand, are more expensive to make but have a higher payout. They are generally made on a single number or various groupings of numbers, and can be based on whether they are odd or even or high or low. If the winning number is 0 or 00, all inside bets lose.

Before the croupier spins the wheel, players place their bets. They can place their bets in a variety of ways by putting chips on the betting mat, with each bet type having its own color and location.

The Line Bet (or Six Number Bet/Sixline Bet in French) is a simple bet that pays out 35 to 1. With this bet, you are placing your chip(s) on the outside border of the board, in between two rows of three numbers. This bet covers a total of six consecutive numbers and has the added bonus of covering a horizontal line between two rows of numbers. This is a good bet for those who want to cover more numbers but are hesitant to commit to a full outside bet.
