The Queen of all Casino Games Roulette. The name comes from the French for small wheel. Roulette was first played in Paris, France in 1796. The rules of Roulette are simple which makes it perfect for every Fun Casino as anyone can play. Roulette is very fast and truly exciting providing an enormous variety of bets.
The Roulette Wheel in fact consists of two wheels. The big one is static, the small one is spun by a Croupier. It is the ideal centrepiece for any Fun Casino. There are in fact two versions of the Roulette Wheel, French and American. The small wheel has 37 numbers in French Roulette and 38 numbers in American Roulette. The numbers are set out randomly. there are 18 red and 18 black numbers, zero is marked green. There is an extra (double) zero in American Roulette.
The principles and bets are the same for both French and American versions of Roulette. The colours of numbers alternate between red and black and are ordered in such way that provides the most various combinations of High/Low and Even/Odd numbers.
The Croupier spins the wheel, then throws in a ball in the opposite direction around a tilted circular track running around the circumference of the wheel. He or she adds to the theatre by encouraging players to bet by using a selection of words Your bets, please! or Make your bets, ladies and gentlemen! or Faites vos jeux, messieurs! in French.
When the ball is slowing down, the Croupier will announce No more bets! or Rien ne va plus!. When the ball loses momentum completely, it falls into the pocket of one of the numbers. This is how the winning number is determined. The winning number and its colour is announced by the Croupier, who puts a marker on the winning number on the Roulette layout. Then he or she removes losing bets first and pays out the winners.
Basic Roulette Bets
There are 12 basic bets in Roulette, a few special bets and a great number of Roulette strategies.
Betting on a single number (called Straight) has the highest pay out of 35:1 Furthermore you can bet on a combination of numbers. They are two numbers (Split), three numbers (Street), four numbers (Corner, Square) and six numbers (Line Bet).
There are also so called even-money bets in Roulette that are particularly popular. They are represented by Low (1-18) or High numbers (19-36), Red or Black numbers and Even or Odd numbers. The pay out on these is always 1:1. For example if you bet £10 on red numbers and won, you would be paid out £10 plus your initial bet £10, of course at a Fun Casino we use Fun Money!
