The Basics of Roulette


Roulette is a game of chance in which players bet on the number or type of number the ball will land on. The game is played on a revolving wheel with numbered compartments. The compartments are alternately red and black, with two green ones that carry the numbers 0 and 00.


There are a few different betting opportunities when playing roullete. One of the most risky is the split bet, where players place their chips to straddle a line between two numbers on the layout. If the player makes a correct prediction, their original wager will be multiplied 17 times. Street bets are another popular choice, where players place their chips to straddle the line between three consecutive numbers on the layout. These bets pay 11 to 1. Outside bets are also available and offer a lower payout.
