A Guide to Roulette
As is the case with many classic games and pastimes, there are multiple hypothesises as to the origin of Roulette, a game which to this day is enjoyed by both online enthusiasts and gamers who actually frequent casinos. However, the most commonly accepted theory behind the evolution of Roulette is as follows. Many believe that it was originally created in in the middle of the 17th century by a French scientist named Blaise Pascal during his monastic retreat and first played in a casino in Paris. The second theory works on similar lines and simply claims that the beloved game was conceived by a random Parisian monk to alleviate the monotony of cloister life. Still, whatever the true origins of the game, it is certainly very popular to this day, but how do you actually play Roulette?
Well, to put it basically, the game of Roulette, either played online or in a land based casino is based upon the same principles. It is played on a wheel which features either 37 or 38 slots, depending on where you are playing and it also contains a small, usually white ball. This ball must land in one of these slots once the wheel is spun by the croupier. The croupier, or the dealer who representing the house, takes your bets and pays should you happen to have predicted the correct outcome. Simply put, correctly guessing that the ball will finally land on number 1 will mean that you are the winner of that round. It could not be simpler.
It is the simplicity of this game then which perhaps renders it so hugely popular both online and in casinos to this day. After all, when the rules are as basic as this, everyone can get in on the action.
