What is Roullete?


Roullete is an exciting roulette game that offers a variety of special bets that can be placed on various sections of the board. These bets can include a single number, various groupings of numbers, the color red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or the high (19-36) or low (1-18) numbered pockets.

The bets in Roullete are made by placing chips on a betting mat, the precise location of which indicates the bet being placed. Once the player’s chips are in place, a dealer spins the wheel and drops a ball into one of the many numbered sectors.

A roulette wheel consists of a disk surrounded by metal partitions called frets or separators and painted in alternating red and black. Each of these compartments is numbered nonconsecutively from 1 to 36, except on American wheels which have a second green division marked 00.

Before a spin, the croupier drops a small ball into the center of the wheel, which rolls and stops as the ball passes through the different numbered sectors. The player who bets on the number that the ball lands on wins the bet.

There are two types of roulette bets: inside and outside. The inside bets are bets placed on individual pockets and the outside bets are bets placed on various groups of pocket positions.

Inside bets are usually the most common type of bet and offer better odds for winning, but lower payouts. This is because the probability of the ball landing on a certain pocket is higher than on other positions on the board.

Outside bets are generally more complicated and can be placed on a number of different pockets, all of which can bring you a range of odds and payouts. For example, a bet on a group of six numbers is an “Inside Bet,” while a bet on a single number is an “Outside Bet.”

Announced Bets

A popular announced bet in roulette is the Neighbours bet. This is a 5-number bet that covers two neighbouring pockets on each side of the roulette wheel. It can be a great way to add some excitement to your roulette game and, as with most announced bets, it requires the special racetrack betting section in most online European Roulette variations.
