Introduction to Roulette
The long wait is over: Roulette has finally arrived at Peergame.
Roulette is one of the most popular casino games in the history of gambling. Although the game itself is very simple and straightforward, Roulette can appear complicated and difficult for beginners due to the variety of bet choices on the table. This introduction will break down those choices and help you learn about the basic rules and terms used in Roulette.
Basic Rules of Roulette
Roulette is a game of guessing which number the ball will land on the wheel. The roulette table consists of two main parts: the wheel and the betting area. Players first place their desired bets on the betting area. Then, the wheel is spun in one direction, and a metal ball is rolled to the other direction on the edge of the wheel. As the ball loses momentum, it eventually lands on one of the numbers on the wheel. Payout is made accordingly to players who made the right call.
That is all there is to it! Extremely simple, right? But the betting area is where it gets a little complicated.
Different Types of Bets
In Roulette, you can freely place multiple bets in a single round. The betting area is mainly divided into two parts: Inside bets and outside bets. Inside bets refer to bets placed on the numbers from 0 to 36, and outside bets refer to the rest of the bets placed outside of the numbers area. The following is the list of different inside bets you can place on the numbers:
Outside bets have smaller payouts with better odds at winning, and they are far less complicated. There are no such thing as betting on edge or corners, but only straight bets.
All these different types of bets can be overwhelming at first, but once you understand them, Roulette becomes a very simple game filled with fun and excitement derived from the variety of options to play.
At Peergame, we will display statistics of the last 100 rounds of Roulette for your reference, which you already might be familiar with from other games.
The top part of statistics displays Hot numbers, the most frequently picked, and Cold numbers, the least frequently picked. For Hot numbers, the order of appearance is that the one on the left is the most frequent. And if many numbers have the same most frequent appearances, the most recently appeared will be on the left. For Cold numbers, the least appeared will be on the left. If many numbers had 0 appearances, the smaller number will be on the left. If many numbers have the same least appearances that aren’t 0, then the number that didn’t appear the longest will be on the left.
The rest of the statistics is pretty straightforward. They are percentages between Red/Black, Odd/Even, 1-18/19-36, and the Dozens and Columns. One thing to note is that the sum of percentage will not equal 100% most of the time, and this is not a bug. It is because ‘0’ is not included in any of those Outside Bets, and therefore unless 0 never appeared in the last 100 rounds, The percentage will not sum up to 100%.
