Roulette can be played in a few slot online versions and the most popular are European and American roulette. The game is actually an easy casino game, and its odds reside only on luck. A croupier throws a ball in the wheel in the opposite direction to which the wheel is spinning. Players bet that the ball will land on the wheels pockets colored and numbered from 1 to 37 in European Roulette and from 1 to 38 in American Roulette.
Roulette holds a variety of bets available for players. These bets are split in two types, ‘inside bets’ and ‘outside bets’. Inside bets refer to the pocket number in which the player bets that the ball will land on. These are the Straight Bet, Split Bet, Street Bet, Square bet and the Line Bet.
Outside bets refer to various positional groupings of pockets, pocket colors, or whether it is odd or even in which the ball will land on. Based on each of the bets probability, these bets have different payout odds that are usually posted for each roulette game. The outside bets are the Column Bet, The Dozen Bet and the Even Money Bet.
Inside bets have higher odds and outside bets have lower odds. The bet with the higher odds (35 to 1) Straight Bet – a player bets that the ball will land on a particular bet. Even Money is the bet with the lowest odds (1 to 1) – a player makes a bet that the ball will land in any of the 18 numbers.
The wheel in European Roulette is numbered from 1 to 36 plus one ‘0’, so you have 37 numbered pockets. This is the roulette version that offers to its players better odds, having a house advantage of only 2.7%.
