Roulette happens to be one of the oldest games out of all the casino games and has gained a tremendous popularity in all corners of the world. This is originally a French game. The name refers to a small wheel in its French originality. This game is basically derived from the dark underworld of “The Beast” or the Devil, with whom the secrets of the game were supposed to be bargained. Because of this, the numbers in the roulette table add up to 666 and it is widely regarded as the “Number of the beast”.
This game is kind of a money making machine, and is widely based on the concept of betting. The players have to make their bets on the number or color, whether it is even or odd and the ball will land up on one certain number/color. The ball is put inside the table and the table is given a spin as the bets are placed. Once the balls stops on a certain number or color, the money is handed over to the person who placed the bet.
The table consists of pockets with some colors and numbers inscribed in it and it’s also the place where the ball comes to a rest after the table is spun. There are 37 pockets with the numbers from 1 to 36 inscribed in a certain sequence. There are two types of wheel; a single zero and a double zero model. The concept of probability defines the pay outs to be made. The bets to be placed are also classified as inside or outside bets.
Roulette has now become a sensational game over the past few generations and it seems like its popularity is not going to fade away anytime soon.
