Roullete is a game of skill where players place chips on numbered spots on a wheel and try to predict which number will land on that spot. Players can either play alone or as a team. The rules of the game are simple: the best way to win is to make the best decision based on the odds.
The history of roulette is a long one. It is believed that the game originated in France. The word roulette means ‘little wheel’ in French. Blaise Pascal, a famous mathematician and inventor, was trying to develop a perpetual motion devise when he came up with the idea. He combined aspects of two other games, the English wheel game Roly Poly and the Italian game Even-Odd.
Probability of winning
Before you decide to place a bet in a roulette game, you should know the probability of winning. This is a simple formula that will tell you how likely it is that you will win by dividing the number of ways you can win by the number of ways you can lose. The roulette wheel has 38 slots, so if you have enough money, you can double your bets after a loss and increase your odds of winning. But remember that this method cannot guarantee you a win.
Outside bets for beginners
If you are a beginner and do not want to spend much money on the bet, the easiest way to play is with outside bets. These types of bets are safer to place, since you are placing your chips on the whole category of numbers, rather than specific numbers.
Alternatives to inside bets
Inside bets involve placing your chips on one or more numbers. You can either bet on one lucky number or spread them out among several numbers. While inside bets can increase your odds, they also carry a higher risk and payoff.
