Roulette has been attracting people for decades and it will. If this is caused by its elegance or uniqueness, that's up to an individual to decide. In this article, we are going to introduce some of its basic principles, strategies and online gaming advantages.



Born in France

Speaking about history, not much is known about roulette. One of the few facts is that its name, Roulette, comes from France. In the form as we know it nowadays, it was played as early as 1790 in Paris. The most frequently told version is that a Frenchman Blaise Pascal, an outstanding personality of 17th century, first came up with the idea of Roulette.

The basis of Roulette is a rotating device which consists of two centered wheels. Around the bigger, still wheel, there is a smallier one spinning, which is divided into 37 (by French roulette) or 38 (by Americal roulette) coloured and numbered pockets. Every game starts with spinning the ball around the outer wheel in the opposite direction of the smaller wheel's circumference. After a while, the ball starts to slow down and moves to the smaller wheel, where it settles in one of the 37 or 38 pockets.

In conclusion

Live Roulette rules

The method when playing Live Roulette stays entirely the same as known from classic or online roulette. The basic principle of Roulette is for the player to estimate, on which square the roulette ball stops. If they estimate it successfully, they win and the winning amount is determined by what the player staked on (colour, a range of numbers, a single number and so on)

The bets are divided into two basic cathegories - outside and inside. To imagine it better, look at the picture below.

Inside bets

Within inside bets, you can stake on single numbers 0 - 36, placed into 3 columns and 12 lines. The zero is situated above the middle column. The bets on one number are paid out according to the 35:1 ratio. You can also bet on more numbers (2, 3, 4, 6) simultaneously, those are so-called combined bets.

V rámci vnitřních sázek si můžete vsadit na jednotlivá čísla 0 - 36, rozmístěná do 3 sloupců a 12 řad. Nula se nachází nad prostředním sloupcem. Sázky na jedno číslo jsou vyplácené v poměru 35:1. Můžete ale vsadit i na více čísel (2, 3, 4, 6) zároveň, to jsou tzv. kombinované sázky.


Outside bets

We can divide outside bets into:

Straight bets - colour (red/black), odd/even, low/high, payout ratio 1:1

Bets on 12 numbers - a dozen (1 - 12, 13 - 24, 25 - 36) and a column, payout ratio 2:1

Strategies for Live Roulette

Roulette has existed for more than 200 years and that's a long time enough for the players to make up a few very interesting strategies for winning. Some of the best-known are explained right here.

Martingale - this bet system is the best-known, but currently, it's also the trickiest one. The principle is that you double the bets after each game which you didn't win. The bettor stakes on red or black colour, on small or big numbers and on even or odd numbers.

Anti-martingale - is the opposite to martingale in basically, the bet is doubled after each successful game. It is presumed that the winning numbers come in series. The length is determined by the bettor beforehand.

D'Alembert - lies in betting on red or black, low or high, even or odd. You stake one unit on a colour. If you win in the first game, then the series ends and you start again by staking one unit. If you lose, you bet one more unit in the next round. If you win, you bet one unit less than by the previous stake.

Fibonacci - You stake 1 unit and if you win, you stake one unit again. If you lose, you stake one unit in the second round, two units in the third round, three units in the fourth round, five units in the fifth round and so on. Everytime you win, you strike out the last two numbers from the sequence and continue.
