Online Roulette

Roulette is one of the classic games played in casinos. The basic idea is to bet on a number, numbers, color, or even/odd; the croupier spins a wheel with those numbers and colors on it, and tosses a ball on the wheel as well. If the ball lands on one of the bet-carrying spots, it’s a win. Online roulette is very similar, except it’s animated instead of 3D.

Roulette got its name from a French diminutive term meaning “little wheel.” The version of the game played today was invented in France in the 18th century, based on an earlier prototype created a century before.

Skill or luck?

While most people will tell you that roulette is just a game of luck, there are some statistics-based strategies that should work – in principle. However, such strategies rarely end up favoring the player. This applies in the online casino as well as in the real casino.

Famous Roulette Winners

A man named Joseph Jaggers – along with his friends – observed the roulette wheels in Monte Carlo; when they detected that one had a certain flaw that gave it a bias, they started placing their bets. They ended up winning some $325,000 – in 1873! More recently, in 2004, Londoner Ashley Revell bet his entire net worth of $135,000 (which included his clothing) at the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas. He bet on red, the ball came to a halt on Red 7, and he walked away with more than $270,000. Despite this impressive feat, doesn’t recommend you wager the shirt on your back.
