Roulette - How to Play
Roulette is one of the oldest casino games in the world. It’s a simple game that when played with a strategy could yield immense profits. The goal of Roulette is to correctly pick a color, either red or black, individual numbers from 1 to 36 or a 0 or double 0, all even or all odd numbers on the roulette table, or a set of 12 numbers either established via the table layout or via a set of 12 numbers, for example, first 12 (1 through 12). Players can also bet on 1 through 18 or 19 through 36.
Once a bet has been placed, the croupier will spin the roulette wheel. Whichever number that the ball lands on, is established as the winning number. If you bet on the exact number, for example you bet on 16 and the ball lands on 16, you win.

Roulette – How to Win
Money management is definitely the key to winning at Roulette. Unlike Craps, where true odds can be found by backing up a Pass Line wager, there are no true odds wagers on the roulette table. In the long run, the house will win.
But that doesn’t mean that roulette players can’t make money by playing the game. The house edge when you make an even money wager in Roulette isn’t too high for you to lose every time. Betting on red or black, or betting on even or odd, will yield profitable results in a short period and unprofitable results over the long hall.
It’s rare to hit individual numbers in Roulette. The payout odds are 35 to 1 on individual numbers, but the true odds are 38 to 1. Make corner, street or split bets instead of straight bets. Or, bet on four specific numbers, like playing Keno, that are your four lucky numbers, as an example.
There is a lot of ways to bet in Roulette. The key is to understand that there is absolutely no skill involved in the actual game. Roulette is a pure game of chance meaning that the true skill, the way to make money, is to manage your bankroll.
