How to Play Roulette

Playing game roulette is simple and straight forward. A small ball is span around a spinning wheel and it drops off the wheel as the wheel and the ball loose momentum. The wheel itself is imbedded on a carousel with slots marked with numbers from 1 to 36 and either a single zero pocket or an extra double zero pocket. The rules of roulette simply govern the type of bets you can make and the payout ratio each type of bet will offer if you the ball settles on your bet. A player or players can bet on a specific number or clusters of numbers depending on the criteria chosen. The game also specifies the minimum bet permitted on the table though does not limit the betting options. It means if the minimum bet is say $5 then you can bet $5 on one number or bet $1 on five numbers to meet the minimum requirement.

Types of Bets

Roulette bets are largely categorized into two; inside bets and outside bets. Inside bets means betting on selected number or numbers while outside bets means betting on a criteria other than selected numbers in which case you bet on color, odd or even number, or such other factors as columns or dozen. On the inside bets you are permitted to bet as follows:

  • One number has a payout ratio of 35 to 1 which means if you bet say $10 correctly then you are paid $350 plus your initial bet.
  • Two numbers have a payout ratio of 18 to 1.
  • Three numbers give a payout ratio of 11 to 1.
  • Four numbers give a payout ratio of 8 to 1
  • Five numbers offer a payout ratio of 6 to 1

Inside bets promise higher payout ratios as they are also less easy to predict from a probability perspective. It is very easy to accurately predict on one number and get it out of the possible 37 that is from zero to 36 or possible 38 if one chose America style roulette. The more numbers you choose to bet on the higher chances you have of landing on any of them and so the lower the payout ratio. Choosing broader categories like reds or blacks give you a near 50 - 50 chance of winning and offers a payout ratio of 1 to1 meaning that you will be paid an a mount equal to your bet plus get your bet back if your prediction comes true.
