European roulette is a casino game which uses a wheel & betting grid. The roulette ball is tossed in the opposite direction of the turning wheel. The players gamble on the number on the ball would land. The European roulette wheel has 37 pockets in total – one zero (0) & the numbers 1 through 36.
In order to play European roulette you first have to place your bets by putting your chips on the appropriate area of the roulette table corresponding to the type of bet you want to make. Primarily there are two types of bets one can place – inside bets & outside bets. Inside bets are placed on a single or a small group of numbers (4, 6, 8 etc.) where the chips are placed in the inner area of the roulette table. Outside bets are placed on a large group of 12 to 18 numbers & the chips are placed around the outer area of the roulette table.
You win in European roulette if the number you have placed your bet on matches the number on which the roulette ball lands when the ball is tossed into the spinning wheel. The amount you win depends on how much you bet & the type of roulette bet you have made.
