How to Play Roulette

The roulette is a game of chance of Italian origin (the Girella) introduced in France in the eighteenth century.

It consists of a disc divided into 37 (or 38, in American roulette) sectors numbered from 0 to 36, alternately colored red and black, while the zero (0), as the double zero (00) when present, is usually colored green or white (in very few cases). The disc is rotated into place by the manager of the dealer (the dealer) which subsequently launches a ball, originally in ivory, now in resin or Teflon: the ball is rotated in the opposite direction to that of roulette, and stop falling into one of the numbered areas, determining the winning number.


The language commonly used by croupiers in the game of roulette is French, with which they are given a set of known sentences at each stage of the game:

* "Faites vos jeux, messieurs!" ( "Gentlemen, do your game!")

* "Les jeux sont faits, rien ne va plus" ( "The games are made, the bets are closed.")

* "Le numéro gagnant est ..." ( "The winning number is ...")

At the number drawn, the dealer is usually the number classified as rouge or noir (red or black), pair or impair (odd or even), and with passe or manque, or if the number is lower or higher than 18 .

There may be three types of table:

* French roulette, classic table with numbers from 0 to 36. It is the most widespread type, is different from the other two types because, in the case of removal of 0, bets on chance are imprisoned simply for being the hand if you quit a number corresponding to the bet chance earlier, the bet is returned in freedom and behave like a bet that can win or lose (rule dell'Eni prison). There is also an exemption conventionally used in most casinos in Europe: When the 0 comes bets on simple chance you can share with the example I pointed.Ad 20 pieces on red and leaves zero withdrawal from table 10 pieces, the bench forfeit the difference.

* Roulette English, as the French roulette, but without the rule prison. The carpet of the game is different for two reasons:

in the table there are three French dealer to play the game while in the English and American one, there are ads (near zero, Series 5 / 8 ) and the carpet is the cylinder with the three sectors of the ads ;

* American roulette, differs from the previous two for the presence of a box: the double zero (00), also green, as in roulette English, there is no rule prison and there are four types of ads and all play in full:

There are game systems encoded on the international level, the most common are: the neighborhood of zero, the series 5 / 8 and .

* The neighbors of zero is a set of 17 numbers located on the cylinder to the right and left of zero, and you can play with a total of 9 chips, the numbers in question are 0-2-3-4-7-12 -- 15-18-19-21-22-25-26-28-29-32-35.

Statistics [edit]

Roulette, like all games of chance in which there is a bench warrant bench himself a mathematical advantage on the player, which in this case is of about 2.70%, which is after all very small compared to games such as Lotto or Totocalcio where it is as much as 60%.
