What is Roullete?


The Roullete is a casino game played on a round table with a fixed layout and a spinning wheel. The wheel has a number of colored compartments numbered 1 to 36, with one additional red and two green ones (the zero). A metal partition, called a fret or a canoe by roulette croupiers divides each compartment into twelve equal sections. The color of each division identifies the type of bet: red or black, odd or even, high or low.

There are various theories about the origin of the Roullete, including that it was invented by the 17th century French mathematician Blaise Pascal or by a Dominican monk. The modern game emerged in the early 18th century and gained popularity rapidly in gambling dens across France and Europe. The house edge was drastically reduced in the late 19th century when a single-zero wheel was introduced. This version became known as European roulette and spread swiftly to New Orleans and beyond.

There are several betting options available to the player in Roullete, and a simple search on Google will return many (possibly millions) of systems for playing, or supposedly winning, the game. These systems range from simple and straightforward, to highly complex. Regardless of the system used, it is important to remember that luck plays a large part in the outcome of any roulette game. The only way to overcome this is to play a fair game that has a low house edge. This can be accomplished by using a number of strategies, such as the Martingale or Labouchere systems, or simply betting even chips on every spin.
