Roulette Rules and Guide

Roulette is probably the world's best known and most popular game in all casinos, online and offline. It is a random game in which 1 out of 36 numbers and zero (0) as the winning number is determined randomly with the help of the spinning wheel (Roulette = French for small wheel).

To do this, the ball is rotated through the sloping kettle. Due to the loss of speed, the ball sinks deeper in the kettle and finally falls in the wheel into the pocket with the winning number. This all sounds pretty simple, but Roulette offers several ways for you to place your bets. Below you'll find everything you need to know about Roulette.


Playing Roulette

The most important info for every player (especially when playing for real money) is that roulette is a game of chance that always offers the provider a house advantage. If you have already looked at the roulette table and the maximum payout for betting on a single number, you may have already noticed why.

In Roulette, you can win a maximum of 35:1 by betting on a single number. However, the wheel contains the numbers 1 to 36 and the 0 (zero), i.e. 37 possible winning numbers. This gives the operator of the game a decisive advantage, which means that, even if dubious comrades like to claim otherwise or offer 'the best system ever known', that there is no safe system with which you can reliably win in Roulette permanently. It doesn't matter which system you play with, your chances of winning are always the same. And even more important: The bank always has an advantage of 2.7% on its side.

Nevertheless, Roulette is an exciting game that can provide a lot of entertainment as long as you are aware that winning at Roulette is always associated with a not negligible amount of luck. To help you understand how to place your bets at the roulette table, below we explain the different types of bets you can make on roulette.
