Designed and introduced for the first time in France in the 18th century roulette has since then become so famous and admired throughout the world as no other game. The whole charisma and mythology surrounding the game and the chance of big winnings is the key factor why crowds gather around the wheel from the very beginning. The game is known to have quite a few versions, depending mostly where it is played. One thing is certain - the best one is still being played in its home place - Europe.The European standard roulette has more player-friendly rules such as the lower house advantage and a pocket less on the wheel. Even though not all of the so-called French rules are taken into consideration, this version still looks better. Indeed, there is only a single zero spot, rather than the double one in the American version. The Basics European roulette wheel contains thirty seven pockets, displaying the numbers from one to thirty six, plus the zero. Every time it is rolled the dealer spins a ball on the outside, allowing it to freely move before finding the winning spot on the wheel. On the other hand, what players have to do is just to guess which number is going to win the round. If they have placed their bets successfully on that particular number, they end up well rewarded. Of course they are not limited only to one number, as they can place more chips on different digits, which will be equally paid off. Players are allowed to make as many bets as they desire. There’s a slight division in the type of the bets: Inside bets are the ones placed directly on a number or numbers, as they appear on the inside part of the layout of the table. The outside bets can cover large areas in the wheel, but will pay out lesser respectively. A bet can be placed even on the color of the pocket (either black or red) where the bet is doubled if predicted.
