What is Roullete?

Roullete, or roulette, is a casino game in which a ball is spun around a revolving wheel in which bets are placed. Players place bets on which red or black numbered compartment the ball will fall into as it spins around the wheel. The player wins if his or her bet is in the winning number, one of various groupings of numbers, or even whether it’s high or low (often called the Dozens bet). Bets are made by placing chips on a special roulette table mat with precise placement of the chips indicating the type of bet being placed.

The croupier then spins the wheel and tosses the ball into it. The wheel has thirty-six colored sections that alternate between red and black, plus a green section on European wheels marked 0, and two additional green sections on American wheels marked 0 and 00. The game of roulette has a long history and many fanciful stories about its origins. The most commonly held view is that it was invented in the 17th century by French mathematician Blaise Pascal.

When the wheel stops spinning and the ball comes to rest, it will fall into a compartment containing a winning bet. The players then receive their payout, and the croupier will collect their bets and reset the table. The croupier also places a small symbolled object on the table to indicate which decision was the last. This object is known as a “buck” or “puck.” Once this is removed the betting will begin again.
