There are lots of different games in a casino. However, if you ask someone who has never played casino, he will probably mention the game of roulette as the most typical casino game. Of course, you probably also get this answer from experienced players, but even those who do not know of any other casino games at all know what a roulette wheel looks like. And that the roulette wheel is so famous, we can probably attribute to all these american films that take place in a casino environment.
Because in most scenes, the rich and beautiful people are around the roulette table, where large sums are invested. There are, as i said, many other games at a casino, but roulette with its ancient origins still has something of a special position. Many casino games are old, but in many cases it is difficult to find the exact origin. When it comes to roulette in particular, most people agree that it has its roots in 18th century. Over the years, the game has of course both acquired influences from other games and changed.
This means that the game we play today has its origins. But is not exactly the same game that was played there when it went about 300 years ago. The origin is still in the name of the variant we play here, namely french roulette, or European roulette. Roulette is a pure game of chance. This means that the game is decided by chance and no one knows in advance what the outcome will be. The fact that it is a game of chance also means that anyone can play, and that everyone has an equal chance of winning because no special prior knowledge is required. You simply have to guess where the ball ends up, and it is therefore important to have a scoop of luck.
The roulette wheel which is actually a rotating disc that sits in a fixed bowl, is divided into 37 fields. The fields are numbered from 0 to 36, and the fields are alternately red and black. However, the field with zero is green. A croupier starts the game by spinning the wheel and then throwing a ball that rolls in the opposite direction. The game then involves trying to guess where the ball will be when the wheel stops. The bet is of course made before the game starts, and the players chips are placed on the numbers you bet on, on a special tablecloth on the game table. The chips are simply placed on the numbers you bet on. However, a bet does not have to be on a specific number. Since there are both different colors and numbers on the roulette wheel, there are also many choices when it comes to games and betting.
