## Playing Roulette For The First Time?

Playing roulette is as easy as reciting your ABC. The roulette wheel consists of 1-36 numbers, 0 and 00 numbers, totaling with 38 numbers. The wheel alternates between odd and even numbers and the colors of red and black

The goal of the game is to guess which color or number the ball will fall on. The roulette player will place the bet on the number, color or group of numbers corresponding to the roulette wheel on the table. To lessen the odds and increase the chance of winnings, roulette players should have more bets on numbers. When the dealer is about to spin the wheel, he or she will announce "no more bets".

The ball is rollwd on the wheel from one direction while the roulette wheel spins from the opposite direction and winnings are determined by which the slot the ball will land on when the roulette wheel stops. The winnings will depend on the number of bets placed. The higher the number of bets placed means an increase in pay-off.

How to place the bets?

Placing the bets is as easy as bagging the money. There is no win-lose situation in a roulette game. The roulette player has many chances of getting a high pay out.

The roulette player has many options to place the bets. The kinds of bets in the roulette are inside bets and outside bets. Whatever the player will decide to bet on will determine the value of the pay out.

Straight bet, street bet, corner bet, split bet, line bet, and a five number bet are all examples of inside bets while the even-money, column, and dozen bets are examples of outside bets.

In a straight bet, if the roulette player wins, the pay out is thirty five to one. In a split bet or two numbers, the pay out is seventeen to one. In street bet or three numbers, the pay out is eleven to one while in corner bet, the roulette player can win eight to one and in five bet, the bet is six to one.

All outside bets pay one is to one. If the bet is placed on any red or black, the player can place the chips on either red or black. If the bet is placed on either even or odd bet, the roulette player can place either on odd or even spot but the player will loose if 0 or 00 comes up. When placing the bet on any number, the player can choose between the numbers of one to eighteen and nineteen to thirty six and as a rule, the roulette player will loose if the number zero comes out.

There are no limits in placing the types of bet the roulette player wants for every spin. The roulette player can place different kinds of bets anytime. Remember the higher the bets, the higher the winnings.
