Roulette - general rules

The present form of roulette has been invented in 1645 by French scientist Blaise Pascal who has worked on the laws of probability. At the very beginning there was a variant that consisted of 36 numbers from 1-36. Almost two hundred year later, Louis Blanc together with his brother added one more number -0- so the casino would have a percentage advantage over the player. The borthers have founded the first casino in Monaco as well. In the United States on the other hand double zero -00- was added in order to reduce the percentage advantage over the player. On the American roulette numbers are arranged in different order when compared to the European one, of course, the principle of alternation of red and black numbers is kept.

The course of game:


After purchasing chips we can proceed to to the game. After betting on numbers croupier spins the roulette wheel in one direction while the roulette ball in the other way. After several spins the ball falls into a specified numbers and stops. Afterward the settlement of the bet begins, if out chips are on the winning number we receive from croupier winning chips the sum of which depends on the type of bet. If we are playing in the land based casino we have the opportunity to place a bet when the ball is already thrown by the croupier. Of course it does not increase the chance of winning, but enhances the game. There is a number of players who play only while the ball is spinning believing that it enlarges their chance of winning. The be must be placed before the croupier says “no more bets” - these words signify the end of betting for a given spin. In general croupiers communicate the end of betting during the last three spins of the ball before it falls into the circle.


Roulette (like every other game in the casino) gives the percentage advantage over the player. In the European Roulete the advantage is 2.7%, in American Roulette 5,26% due to the presence of the double zero.
