Roulette : Definition

Recommended Posts

Roulette is a casino game named after the French word meaning little wheel. In each play of roulette, a croupier spins a roulette wheel in one direction, then rolls a ball in the opposite direction in a tilted circular track that surrounds the wheel. The ball gradually loses momentum, passes through an area of deflectors, and eventually falls into one of several colored and numbered pockets along the edge of the wheel.

Players can bet on whether the ball will fall into the pockets numbered 1–36, but not on a pocket that belongs to the house (that is, the casino). In French (or European) style roulette, the pocket numbered 0 belongs to the house; in American style roulette, the pockets numbered 0 and 00 belong to the house. The croupier pays the winnings to any player that placed a successful bet.

Casino offers the players several ways to bet. They can bet on individual numbers, various groupings of numbers, the colors red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or whether the numbers are high (19–36) or low (1–18). If the ball falls into a pocket that belongs to the house, all the players lose and the house collects all the bets.
