Roulette in Asia

Roulette is a casino game known all over the world, which cannot be missing in the best land-based casino rooms and in the best online casino platforms. 

Its origin dates back to the 18th century in France, where the first form of Roulette was created. However, it goes further back to the 17th century, when Blaise Pascal introduced a primitive form of it in his search for a perpetual motion machine.

The game as we know it today was born in 1796 in Paris, and made one of its first appearances in a French novel. 

Today, it is one of the most played and most sought-after casino games by players all over the world, being so popular that it appears in countless novels, TV series and movies.

How to play Roulette?

Something important to take into consideration is that roulette tables have thirty-six squares numbered from 1 to 36 with an additional single or double zero square at the top, these squares are related to the ones inside the roulette wheel.

The idea of this game is to anticipate in which square or square rhythm the ball is going to fall when the roulette wheel is spun.

In order to place a bet, you must first know that there are different types of bets, these are the “inside bets” and “outside bets”.

In the “inside bets” you can bet as follows: 

  • Five-number bet (0, 00, 1, 2, 3): Payout 6 to 1
  • Six lines bet on six numbers: Payout 5 to 1
  • Corner bet on four numbers: Payout 8 to 1
  • Street bet on three numbers: Payout 11 to 1
  • Split bet on two numbers: Payout 17 to 1
  • Straight up bet on one number: Payout 35 to 1.

However, outside bets can be made as follows:

  • High or Low: Payout 1 to 1
  • Black or Red: Payout 1 to 1
  • Odd or Even: Payout 1 to 1
  • Dozen Bet: Payout 2 to 1
  • Column bet on 12 numbers: Payout 2 to 1

When the player knows the types of bets, he must select his bet and wait for the roulette wheel to spin in order to know the results.

However, the way the roulette is played will depend on the type of roulette the user wishes to play. The best known and “classic” roulette wheels are American, French

Roulette payouts are made as follows:

  • 1:1 odd. These are bets where you bet on half of the numbers. Here, the same amount bet is paid.
  • 2:1 odd. Here, the payout is equal to twice the amount wagered. 
  • 5:1 odds when betting on 6 numbers, 8:1 when betting on 4 numbers, 11:1 when betting on 3 numbers, and 17:1 when betting on 2 numbers. 
  • Bets on a specific number, in which the payout is 35 times the amount wagered.
