#### What is Roullete?

Roullete is a gambling game in which players place bets on the outcome of a spin of a revolving wheel. The wheel is divided into compartments numbered from 1 to 36 in alternating red and black, with one additional green division numbered 0. Players place bets against the house (the casino) by placing chips on the table that correspond with the compartments of the wheel. During the spin of the wheel, the ball will drop into one of the compartments. If the player correctly guesses which compartment the ball will fall into, he or she will win.

Roulette combines simplicity of rules with intrigue and elegance, and it has long been popular in casinos and other gaming establishments around the world. Despite its relatively simple nature, the game has a surprising depth and provides high rewards for players who correctly predict the correct outcome of a spin.

Fanciful stories of the game’s origin abound, with the 17th century French mathematician Blaise Pascal being credited as its creator. The game grew in popularity over the next 300 years, becoming a fixture in European casinos. It arrived in the United States in the early 1800s, where rampant cheating by both operators and gamblers prompted changes to the wheel, betting layout, and table.

Today, most roulette games are played on a circular wheel that has a number of numbered compartments alternating red and black. The American version of the game differs from the original European roulette in that there is an extra green compartment numbered 00, which significantly increases the house edge and makes the game less favorable to the player.

There are many types of bets in the game, including single-number bets, various groupings of numbers, and color bets (red or black). Some players also place bets based on whether the number is odd or even. The most commonly performed form of the game is European roulette, which has a single zero and thus offers the highest payout (35:1) if the ball lands on one of its numbers.

A bettor’s winnings are paid out as soon as all losing bets have been removed from the table, which usually occurs after about three minutes. While it may be tempting to keep your winnings and continue betting, you should always bet with a predetermined budget and not dip into your winnings.
