The Basics of Roulette


Roulette is a casino game that has a rich history that dates back more than 300 years. It was invented in the 17th century by Frenchman Blaise Pascal. The game consists of a circular wheel with compartments that are red or black and numbered from 1 to 36. There are also two green compartments, called 0 and 00, on American-style wheels.

Game of chance

There are some people that claim roulette is a game of pure chance, but this is not true. While it is a game of chance, players can use strategies that will help them to win more often than not. These are known as “systems.” However, no strategy can give the player a 100% probability of winning. These systems are only developed through trial and error by the player. This makes the game more rational and logical to play.
