Roulette- The Wheel of Fortune!
No formal introduction is required for the most famous game of chance in the whole universe- Roulette! Though its origin and evolution remains largely shrouded in mystery it’s thought to have a French origin. Whatever be its origin, Roulette has since come a full circle by being the hottest poker game on planet earth!
The double zero American roulette wheels and the single zero European roulette wheels are touted as the most popular genres. The Roulette wheel has ensured a place in almost all casinos around the world probably because of its simple and snappy games with specks of suspense that keep you pinned on to the edge of your seat coupled with a fat purse for the winner.
Roulette revolves around a table with a wheel and a ball, and the players can place their bets on the colors, numbers or various combinations; the maximum and minimum payoffs might vary according to these. Spin the wheel and pray for good luck (There is nothing else that you can do once the wheel is set in motion!) and hope that the ball would end up in your number or color as the wheel comes to a halt.
You can bet on odd or even numbers, colors like red, black or the green zero slot, columns, rows or groups of numbers. Remember small groups or specific target might fetch you more bet; so try to be precise while betting. Single Number bets allow you to bet on numbers from 1-36; you have the choice to bet on one or more of these, whilst the split bet allows you to bet on two different numbers with the same chips.
Always bear in mind that Roulette is only a game of pure chance and the winning streaks of Roulette might turn sour in a few wheel spins. So, caution is the watch word as you cannot foretell the outcome or plan your moves unlike many other games. Depending on your bets there is an equal chance for you to win and lose the bet. So never bet huge amounts that will leave you broken. Be realistic in your betting hopes.
Stick to the budget and as the game is likely to be addictive you should know when to say quits and walk off lest you will burn your fingers very badly. Play safe and if tide is not in your favor it’s safe to walk off or try your hands at some other game.
Always set aside your winning chips, however small they might be as winning something is better than nothing at all! What if you want to spend a fairly long time in the casino? Settle for minimum bets as this will ensure that your budget will take you through the day. If you have set aside $50, sit at the minimum$5 table as it ensures 10 meaty spins.
Last but not the least; never bet while you are upset as you might run into bad bets when you are not in the right frame of mind, which could spell disaster.
