There is definitely something almost magical and hypnotizing in the spinning wheel and the sound of the ivory ball that trembles and eventually settles in one of the pockets. Here’s an introduction to roulette for new players.

American roulette

There are two types of popular roulette wheels. The most regular used roulette wheel in the USA is a double-zero wheel called American roulette. The American roulette wheel contains numbers 1 to 36, a 0 and a 00. This creates a home advantage of more than 5%. The most prevalent wheel in the world is a single zero wheel, usually called a European roulette wheel. They contain a 0 and the numbers from 1 to 36. The edge of the house on a European wheel is about 2.5%.

You can place a wide range of bets on each roulette round, offering a wide range of winnings. Here are the most common bets and winnings.

Straight / Single number 35 to 1
Split / Two numbers 17 to 1
Street / Three numbers 11 to 1
Square / Four numbers 8 to 1
Line / Five numbers 6 to 1

Column / All 12 numbers 2 to 1
Dozen / ex 1 thru 12 2 to 1

With the growth of online gambling, more and more people are playing roulette online.
