Learn Roulette in Under 5 Minutes

Sep 10, 2008
Roulette is a very popular casino game. The reason therefore is probably that it's so simple to play. If you don't know how to play Roulette, this article is perfect for you because I'll explain it to you, so you learn how to play roulette in under 5 minutes.

In its simplest form, you play roulette by placing bets on what number the ball will land when the wheel is done spinning. So, now, you already understand the most basic way of how to play this game.

When playing Roulette, there are many different bets you can place. These include betting on which number will come, in which section of the table the number that comes is (i.e. between 1 to 12, 13 to 24 or 25 to 26), in which row the number that comes lies (the table has 3 rows of numbers), if the color of the number is red or black, if it's an even or odd number, or if it's between 1 and 18 or between 19 and 36. There are also some other bets available, like betting on which row the number will lie, but you'll learn more about these when you play a bit. The bets explained earlier are the most common ones, so as long as you understand these, you'll be ok.

The other thing that you should know about are the payouts. If you hit the exact number that comes, you'll get paid 35 to 1, which means for every $1 bet, you'll have a winning of $35 and you'll get your original bet back. If you hit the right section (either what column the number lies it, or in what section, i.e. 1 to 12, 13 to 24 or 25 to 36), you'll get paid at 2 to 1, meaning you'll win $2 for each $1 bet, as well as your original bet back. If you bet on the color, odd / even, or on high / low (1 to 18 or 19 to 36), you'll win $1 for every $1 bet, and you original bet back, when winning.

Now, you might also wonder which bet is the best one on a roulette table, so that the casino has the lowest edge over you. But, there is no simple answer because the casino has the same edge on all bets. Therefore, you don't really have to worry too much about strategy when playing roulette. One thing you might want to check though is that you play on a European roulette table, which is a table that only has one 0 and no 00. Because the payouts are the same for both tables, you minimize the edge of the casino by playing with only one 0.
