Online Casino Advice Guide From Cappers Picks
Roulette is a simple and fun game to play at all online casinos. Roulette, meaning “small wheel”, consists of a wheel, a ball and a table marked with separate boxes containing numbers in non sequential order. You can place bets on any particular number or a set of numbers. Once you have placed your bet(s), clicking on the Spin button initiates play and the ball is released in the opposite direction of the spinning wheel. When the ball stops in one of the numbers, you win if your bet was placed on that number.
In most online casinos there are two versions of Roulette are available to play: Roulette or American Roulette and European Roulette. The main differences between the two games are the numbers on the wheels and the types of bets that you can place. Roulette has both a single zero (“0”) and a double zero (“00”) while European Roulette only has a single zero (“0”).
In the early eighteenth century, Hoca was played in casinos across Europe. The game evolved to include a spinning wheel with numbered slots and a numbered table. In American Roulette, the wheel is spun counter-clockwise and then a ball is spun clockwise around the wheel. Eventually, the ball drops into one of the wheel’s numbered slots. Players place bets on the numbered table in an attempt to determine which number or color the ball will land on. American Roulette has 38 numbered slots, including 0 and 00.
