## Few Words and basics about Roulette

The term Roulette comes from a French origin, meaning “little wheel”, and it is related to the wheel that the roulette has in order to determine the winner and decide which bets are the winning combinations. On the table, you will be able to see a green grid with 36 number on it in red and black colour plus the 0 which is a green colour. All over this table or grid, you can see the betting combinations that you can do. You can go for the most famous one, which is the black and the red, or you can go with the odd or even numbers. The Zero doesn’t get in any of these combinations. There are also combinations from 1-12, 13-24 and 25-36, or in three equal parts, as well as from 1-18 and 19-36, or two equal parts. You can also place a bet by leaving your chips on any of the numbers on the table, playing for one, two or four numbers with one chip at the same time.

## Roulette Betting and Odds

We have just mentioned some of the Roulette’s basic rules and how you can place a bet on the table, so let’s see the odds in the same. If you decide to go for the black or white, or even and odd, you will receive x2 if you manage to guess the correct option. The changes in these two are a little bit below 50% as there is one position, the 0, which actually doesn’t belong to any of the categories that we have stated above. The odds of a number are 35 to 1, even though there are 37 numbers on the table.

## Some Basic Roulette Procedures and Tips

After the end of a round, there will be a slight break of a little less than a minute, or exactly a minute in some casinos where you can think about your next move. You will see an obvious timer that counts down the remaining time for you to place a bet.

Making outside bets will return you less money, but your chances of winning are significantly higher. Also, make sure you only play with your profits. Roulette can get very addicting; setting rules for yourself may keep you from going overboard and end up losing all of the money you’ve made, as well as your own money. Good luck!
