Spinning the Wheel: Understanding Roulette

Posted on September 1st, 2016 by Carte Blanche Casino

Roulette is a difficult game to master, but with a better understanding of the basics and the odds, you can learn to become a skilled player of this classic casino game.

Roulette Wheel

First, the basics: A standard roulette wheel consists of a spinning disk with divisions around its edge that revolves around the base of a bowl. Each section around the bowl is numbered 1-36 and alternate in a red and black pattern. On the tables offered by Carte Blanche Casino, as well as most other American Roulette wheels, there are also two green spots – one marked 0 and a second labeled 00. If the roulette ball lands in either of these green spaces, all bets are voided and the house wins.

Betting offers a wide range of options for roulette players. Prior to rolling the ball, people may place their bets on a specific number they believe will come up or different sections, such as whether the number will be odd or even, red or black, low (1-18) or high (19-36) and several other options. Each bet offers different odds – for example, on a single number play, you have approximately a 1 in 38 chance to win, while a bet on black or evens offers a close to 50-50 shot at winning.
