Roulette (meaning ‘little wheel’ in French), has been a popular game at casinos since the historical roulette wheel was devised by the 17th century French mathematician, Blaise Pascale. The main objective of roulette is to predict in which slot the ball will fall after all bets have been made and the dealer has spun the roulette wheel.

The roulette wheel consists of 37 or 38 slots that are numbered, and zeroes are depicted as the colour green on the wheel. European Roulette is based on the original game and has 37 slots on wheel, giving players a reasonably low house edge. American Roulette has an extra zero added, depicted as 00 on the wheel, and pushes the house edge significantly, which means that experts advise to avoid this version. Once you know how to play roulette, it is important to learn the different rules and betting options of the game too, with some (such as odds, evens, reds or blacks) offering odds of 1.11 to 1 and some (such as 0 or straight up bets) offering odds of 37:1!
Besides sticking to European roulette and certain bets, players should also seek out variants of roulette which carry the en prison rule which brings down the house edge significantly. Remember that roulette is a game of chance.
One of the most well known roulette personalities is Joseph Jagger who won a six figure sum in the 1870’s, considered a fortune back then. Charles Wells, known as the Man who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo in famous books and films, managed to break the bank at each roulette table over a period of a few days at the turn of the nineteenth century.
