To generalize roulette play, you place a bet, the ball
is placed in the spinning wheel and if the ball lands on
a number that makes you a winner you get paid. If it

lose your bet. Of course to really understand how to
play roulette you have to understand the best that are
available to you. That is what most of this page will
help you understand. Read on and in just minutes you
will understand all of the possible roulette bets and
you will be ready to try your luck on the spinning
The roulette layout is where you place your bets.
There are either 37 numbers on a European roulette wheel
or 38 numbers on an American roulette wheel. The numbers
on the table are 1 through 36 and either a single zero
or a single zero and a double zero. Just in case you are
wondering, you should always play only on a single zero
roulette wheel. The house edge is half what the double
zero wheel offers. Here are the bets you can place on

are comfortable playing roulette you can start mixing in
a variety of the other bets and find the ones you like
How to Learn a Roulette System
There are plenty of people who will sell you some
kind of roulette system that they swear will win you
tons of money. There is not a roulette system that can
beat the house over time unless you can find a biased
roulette wheel. It is mathematically impossible to
overcome the house edge over time. Now like most games
of chance, once you learn how to play roulette you will
have streaks where you can win a good deal of money. But
you will also have streaks where you lose even more.
Much like finding a biased roulette wheel in a
casino, you can not beat online roulette unless you find
a casino with flawed software. Even if this does ever
happen, it won't last long. Online casinos are just like
real casinos and if they aren't making money on every
game they will figure out what's wrong and fix it.
Your best bet is to play roulette only on a single
zero European roulette wheel and play within your
budget. I hope this short roulette tutorial has helped
you learn how to play roulette and I hope you have hours
of fun playing roulette at your favorite casino.
