The Idiot’s Guide to Online Roulette
With the spin of the wheel and ball, the flashing lights and colors, and massive payouts, it is easy to see why Roulette is one of the most popular games online. There is a huge variety of betting options to keep you interested and entertained.
Roulette is a simple game to learn with a few basic online casino gambling instructions.
Components of the Game
Roulette is made up of a wheel with 38 slots and a felted board with betting options. Players place bets on the ‘inside’ (number 0, 00, or 1-36) or the ‘outside’ (odd/even, red/black, 1-18/19-36, 1st 3rd/2nd 3rd or 3rd3rd).
Based on the odds of ball landing in various sections, there are different payouts available.
If you are betting on the ‘outside’, you only need standard casino chips. If you are betting on the ‘inside’, you will need special chips from the dealer – with one color assigned to each player at the table. This is done to determine whose chips are on which number or section easily.
