Roulette is one of the most interesting games of luck due to easy and straightforward rules of roulette. Players can relax and enjoy the gaming process if they know how to place bets and count the payouts. They have to understand the risk they take as no statistics, mathematical calculations or roulette betting systems can help predict the outcomes of the game, only luck and "inner voice" may be of great help.

The game starts when the dealer calls out "place bets" and players should decide where to place their bets; right after the dealer calls out "no more bets" players are not allowed to bet no more. Every player has colored chips with definite color different from others. This is done not to be mistaken when paying the winnings. Every bet has its payout depending on the risk. It is common knowledge that European roulette has higher winning probabilities as American roulette wheel has two zero slots which increase the house edge considerably.
