Infinite fun with roulette
Roulette is one of the oldest casino games, but over time it has not lost any of its “flexibility”, on the contrary. In fact, it is currently having its best years. This queen of casino games is a timeless classic which has become the favorite game of players all over the world.
Shaun’s roulette system
There are various roulette systems in existence, which are derived from known mathematical rules and are based on the theory of probability, but, the system we’ll be presenting in this article is different. It was developed by Shaun - a fantastic roulette player who worked on it for so long until he led it to perfection.
Basic roulette terms
Have a look at and learn the basic terms used in roulette – that’s the only way to understand the rules of the gambling game.
Roulette is one of the oldest gambling games in the world and, like any other game, it has its rules that every player should know. This, let´s say etiquette, is nothing complicated and enables players to understand the point of the game and take them closer to winning.
Basic types of roulette games
If online casinos want to reach the widest possible range of casino players, they tend to add table games to their portfolio alongside slot machines especially the queen of these games, roulette.
The most common types encountered in online casinos are mainly European and French roulette. There are no big differences between them, they are practically the same rules, wheel, and the same playing field, which often comes in two formats, the classic and the Racetrack field with bets on adjacent numbers in the wheel. The only difference may be in the language version or the special "La Partage "bet where half of the bet amount is returned if a zero is rolled.
Sometimes you can also come across American Roulette but unlike the above-mentioned ones, it has two zeros.
Other nontraditional Roulette versions
Players usually appreciate the good old classics, so special types of roulettes probably won't attract them that much. Nevertheless, some companies are experimenting with this classic game to attract those who are bored with the basic types or just want to try something new and unusual.
Some of the changes from the original roulette wheel are in the size of the wheel itself and the number of places. In the classic version, we have 36 of them and with zero we have a total of 37. However, in some special so-called Miniroulettes, there are only 13 (12+0), and in the larger version, there can be up to 101 (100+0).
In some other versions, we have an additional ring added to the wheel, and the playing field has extra boxes for special bets or a randomly assigned bonus number or character in the playing field. Alternatively, you can play Multiwheel Roulette where multiple wheels spin simultaneously at the same time. A very specific type is Chinese roulette, where the numbers are substituted for the characters (animals) of the Chinese calendar.
In rare cases, changes may even affect the way we arrive at the numbers themselves. A nice example is, for example, the older game Pinball Roullette from Playtech, where the final number is not determined by the wheel, but by the pinball table. In it, a ball shoots out and it bounces randomly to the numbers moving at the bottom of it.
