Roulette is a casino game of chance played on a wheel. The goal is to predict the number or type of number that the dealer will place on the wheel before he spins it. The wheel consists of a wooden disk that has divisions numbered from 1 to 36. These divisions are separated by metal partitions known as canoes. The numbers on the wheel are painted alternately red and black. On European-style wheels there is a 37th compartment that is numbered green and on American wheels there are two green divisions numbered 0 and 00. When playing roulette, a player places bets on the table by placing chips in specific positions. The chips are marked with a specific color so the croupier can distinguish them. During the game, players can bet on single numbers, groups of numbers, the color red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or high (19-36) or low (1-18). The odds for these bets are determined by the probability that the ball will land in these spaces on the wheel. Bets on a single number are called inside bets. Similarly, bets on different groups of numbers are called outside bets. In the United States, there are different rules for betting on roulette. Some American casinos offer a “basket” bet which is a type of line bet that pays 6 to 1. The payout for this bet is worse than any other type of roulette bet, but it can still be a good way to make money in a pinch. There are also special bets that allow you to double your bet or get paid even if the ball lands on zero. These include “en prison” and “la partage.” To place a bet on any of the three sections of the board, place a chip on the area containing the desired number. A player can place a bet of up to 40 chips on each section of the board. The winning bet is still the player’s property, and it can be re-wagered as long as the bet remains on the table. A winning bet can also be divided into multiple smaller bets if the player chooses. Betting on outside bets is much cheaper than betting on inside bets. These bets can be made on different groupings of pockets, red or black, odd or even. The game of roulette is not complicated, but there are a few things that should be kept in mind before you play. First, know the rules of the game and what types of bets you can make. It’s also a good idea to read up on strategy before you start playing.
