Roulette is very easy to play and it could be very rewarding game at the same time. In online roulette game the player plays against the betting house, same as in the land based casino, on the specific numbers or a set of numbers or on the colour scheme. The dealer represents the betting house and he is also called a croupier. The player needs to place their bets on the number or the colour as the desire and once the bets are placed by the players the dealer turns a white ball in the opposite direction of the wheel spinning. The winners are announced as soon as the ball lands on any number and all the bets are settled.
Roulette wheel could have either 37 or 38 numbered slots which range from 1 to 36 and a Zero or sometimes it has both the Zero and double Zero. Double Zero only appears in only American roulette. Most off the online casino provides all the kind of roulette which is European roulette, American roulette or sometimes Caribbean roulette. In roulette the red colour represents the even numbers and the black colour is for odd numbers. Zero and Double Zero blocks are usually green coloured.
Roughly 7 or 8 players can play at one casino roulette table and they all are provided different coloured chips to see what each player has bet. Once the dealer starts the spin and rolls the ball no more bet placements are allowed and you can’t change the bets you have made. It’s not legal to touch or change your bets once the spin begins. Once the ball stops on any number the dealer will check the winning number with the plastic marker and pays the winner and collects all the loosing bets.
New bet only begins again when the dealer removes the plastic marker. Bets can be made in many ways. You can bet on a number, a set of numbers like 1-18/19-36, on red colour or black colour.
