Get to know Roulette: History & How to Play
Roulette is a game that uses small ball media, rotating disks and tables with 36 numbers in it. The chance of winning at Roulette is indeed higher, because the victory will be multiplied by tens of times the value you put on. Interesting right? Let's take a closer look at Roulette.
What is Roulette?
Roulette or Roulette itself is a small ball game with wheeled rounds in which has 36 numbered places. The purpose of the game is quite simple, namely the players must determine where the ball will stop after playing. The roulette wheel itself consists of a rotating disk with an arch around its edge, which rotates around the bottom of the bowl. The ball will be played on the outside of the bowl until finally the ball and the wheel stop in one of the places filled with numbers.
Roulette itself comes from French, which means Little Wheel. In the Roulette game, there is a dealer who will spin the little wheel, and throw a ball in the opposite direction, which can spin around the wheel until the ball finally falls to the surface of the wheel.
The French inventor Blaise Pascal came up with the concept that the modern roulette wheel originated in the 17th century. He was looking to create a device that works purely on unlimited movement. A method for getting the wheels turning in a state without limits without outside influence. After this project was finally abandoned, it took more than a century to be taken back and modified into a wheel that we recognize today.
Through Pascal, this game experienced the most significant development during the middle of the 19th century when the wheels were redeveloped by the French brothers, Francois and Louis Blanc. They introduced red and black bags numbered 1 to 36 and a single green zero pocket.
When moving to the United States, Roulette also experienced a development, a double green zero slot which later became known as American Roulette. This allows the casino to get a significant profit in their favor (5.2% versus 2.6%). These wheels and settings are what you will see if you later play American Roulette in a classic style, which is still far more popular than the one-zero style of play that is predominantly European.
Types of Roulette
In essence, Roulette is a game of chance: Before the wheel spins and the ball is moved, players bet on numbers or numbers, and a certain color before the ball will stop and land. There is no strategy or technique that can increase a player's chances of winning, other than knowing a small difference in odds between the main roulette variations. The difference in this opportunity stems from two variations of roulette: American and European.
1. European Roulette
European Roulette is a game that uses 37 number slots. And from the numbers contained in these 37 slots, they usually consist of numbers 1-36, as well as one single zero (0).
2. American Roulette
Unlike Europe, American Roulette is a game that uses 38 number slots. And the numbers contained in these 38 slots, consisting of numbers 1-36, as well as a single zero (0), and also a double zero (00). American Roulette has 00 pockets in addition to 0 pockets, which has the effect of increasing profits because there are many points on the wheel where players must choose. Basically when playing American roulette, the chance of winning you can get is around 1 to 38. Besides point 00, American roulette is different from Europe in terms of spinning wheels. The European roulette wheel sets random number placements, while the American wheel places the numbers in sequence opposite each other.
Rule of the game
Roulette rules are actually quite easy. In this game, you have a red and black rotating wheel that has numbers from 1 to 36, and one or two green zero slots, depending on whether you play European single zero roulette or if you play American double roulette zero. Except for wheels, you have a table that displays numbers and some additional sectors where you can place bets. After all participants in this game will place their bets on the table, the dealer turns the wheel and throws a small ball. Wherever the number of ball slots entered, then that is the winning number.
There might be some differences in the wheel and table layout according to the game you are playing, but you don't need to worry because it has no impact on the outcome of the game.
