Roullete in Monte Carlo

About Roullete

Roulette is one of the oldest casino games. It offers glamour, mystery, and excitement to many players. It is played on a table and a spinning wheel and is one of the most popular games in Monte Carlo. The game is easy to learn and provides a surprising amount of depth for serious bettors.

The roulette wheel consists of a solid wood disk, slightly convex, with metal compartments (called frets or canoes by roulette croupiers) around the perimeter. The thirty-six compartments are painted alternately red and black, and are numbered nonconsecutively from 1 to 36. On European-style wheels a green compartment, painted 0 displaystyle frac, is also present; on American wheels there are two green compartments.

On the grand scale of American casino games, roulette is not as popular as video poker, blackjack, or slot machines, and it draws a smaller crowd than baccarat. However, the game remains a mainstay in Monte Carlo and other European casinos.

To play roulette, start by placing bets on “outside bets” (groupings of numbers instead of individual digits) which are usually cheaper and have a higher likelihood of hitting. Next, place your chips on the end of any “street” on the table map. Ensure that your bets are within your predetermined budget. Avoid using grandiose or complicated strategies, as they do not improve your odds more than luck.
