If you have ever played gambling games – then you definitely know about the game of roulette. In fact, this is one of the most popular and most notorious gambling games of all. It’s also very simple to learn – the rules can be taught to anybody within a few minutes and this is a part of the game’s charm and one of the reasons why it has managed to attract the attention of millions of gamblers from all around the world. But what makes this game so special? Why is it so popular?
First of all, there are 37 fields on the roulette table (or 38, depending on which version you’re playing). These fields are the numbers from 0 to 36 – the zero is typically of green color, and then there are red and black fields intermixed. You will be able to bet on each one of them. There’s a roulette wheel to the side of the table and there’s a ball that falls on the reel while it spins. The ball will settle on one field – and this field is the winning number or color. This means that while playing roulette you will hope to hit the winning number or color in order to win some money.
You will be able to see the game of roulette in most every casino you set your foot into – the fact of the matter is, as we mentioned before, that the game of roulette is one of the most popular gambling games in existence. Chances are that it will immediately grab your attention. In fact, the game roulette continues to pick the fantasy of the players that come in contact with it. There are some versions of the history of the game that say that the man that originally designed the game ended killing himself because he couldn’t find a way to beat the game. Also, when you add up all of the numbers on the roulette table you will see that the result is 666 – which is the number of the beast. These stories add fuel to the fire of the rising notoriety of the game even though the truth is most likely a lot more trivial than that. It’s speculated that the game of roulette was originally designed in 18th century France. In fact, there are certain theories that say that the game was created by Blaise Pascal in his search for the perpetual motion machine. The game had its own rules at the beginning and the rules continued to evolve from then on up until this very day when we have the final version of the game.
If you’re trying to beat the game – then you’re in for a battle. Many have tried and failed to do this – it’s simply very difficult, if not impossible, to find a mathematically proven system that you could use on a regular basis in order to beat the game. Of course, if you had unlimited money and if you were able to place unlimited bets then you would have beaten the game as it means that you will always have the money to double up on your bets until you actually win. And this brings us to the most popular roulette strategy that people use in order to try and win some money on roulette – the so-called Martingale strategy. This is a strategy that says that you have to double up on your lost bet and bet on one of the two colors in the game. Continue to double up your bet on the same color until you actually win, then go back and place the original amount of the first bet on the other color. This is a progression that you could use to win most of the times as it’s rare for the ball to fall only on one color for say 8 consecutive times. However, if you do end up losing – you will lose a lot of money based on the fact that your betting system is a progression. So, again, it’s all up to your luck – can you make enough money with the Martingale strategy to cover your potential loss? This is far from being a fool-proof roulette system, but many people still use it with success.
If you can understand roulette for what it really is – a fun game where you can experience a lot of excitement and hope to win some money on the side – then you will be fine. But a lot of people expect to beat the system and get rich from roulette. This is not a healthy understanding of the game and many people would say that this attitude has ended up making them bankrupt. You should always remember that you should gamble responsibly and you should never get too carried away.
There are also a few sections of numbers that have their own unique names on the roulette table. There are the Voisins du zéro (neighbors of zero), Le tiers du cylindre (third of the wheel), and the Orphelins (orphans). You can bet on each of these sections if you wish to do so.
We were talking about real-world roulette machines up until this moment – but the fact of the matter is that you could also play roulette online. And the game is pretty much like the real-world original, only now you will be able to play it online on a computer device. Most of the online casinos offer different kinds of versions of the game of roulette. If you google out any of the online casinos, chances are that you will there be able to play a game of roulette – the rules in the real-world roulette and online roulette are pretty much the same.
So, if you find that you’re attracted to this game – why not give it a try? After all, since millions of people are playing it, it means that the game definitely has something of interest in it. We think that you will be able to have a lot of fun with this game and we hope that you will win some money by playing roulette.
