Without doubt the most popular casino game at a land based casino is roulette and you will often find people having a good night out who have never played roulette before and the reason that roulette is so popular is that it is so easy to play. At an online casino roulette is also popular but regular online casino players will also often play casino slots but roulette definitely gives the casino player a wide range of betting opportunities which no doubt adds to the popularity. As everyone knows te idea of the game is to predict where the roulette ball will land and there are 37 possibilities in regular European or French roulette (there are 38 in American roulette so we advise not to play that game if you have a choice). In any spin of the roulette wheel you can of course back as many numbers as you wish which increase both your stake and the chances of winning and it is just that which means you can play as high or as low a risk games as you wish. The low risk games are normally betting on black or red or odd or even which in effect means that you have 18 of the 37 numbers covered and these bets pay at even money whereas the higher risk game is to bet on a single number which pays out at 35:1. When playing online roulette you can of course place any combination of bets you wish so there is nothing to stop you placing bets on one or more single number in combination with any of the red/black, columns, rows, splits or any other bet. Most casino players realise that roulette is a perfectly random games and will therefore simply spread their bets around the table on each spin which quite frankly is as good a way to win as any.
