How to Play Roulette
Here at Slot Boss we usually specialize in giving players the most unique slots experience possible. However, some of our more observant players will have noticed that we also have a fantastic live casino section which features some absolute classics like Online Blackjack and Live Roulette alongside some games you maybe wouldn’t expect such as Deal or No Deal Live and Monopoly Live but today we are going to be focusing on one of the Casino’s most popular games - Roulette.
What is Roulette
Roulette is one of the world’s favourite Casino games due to its variety of unique betting options. There are tonnes of different ways to play roulette but each variant of the popular game is fairly simple to grasp and play - even in-front of a live audience. Roulette was invented in the 17th century by a Frenchman who looked to create a motion slot that didn’t require outside energy. The funny thing about this, is that the inventor actually failed his goals but ended up creating the Roulette wheel, talk about a silver lining.
How do I Play Roulette?
We at Slot Boss have a description for every variant of Roulette on our site. However, here are some of the basics of Roulette.
Making a Bet
If players wish to make a bet on the Roulette table, they should set out their chips into the betting positions of their choice. Basic bets are divided into two main sections: inside and outside bets. Inside bets such as picking a specific number for the ball to land on are less likely to win but have massive payouts, while the outside bets are more likely to win but have significantly lower payouts. These bets include picking columns, squares, and the one that a lot of players usually go for, red or black.
Roulette Payouts and Odds
Roulette gives players more opportunities to win than most casino games, here are the potential payouts for this popular game
|Bet Name:||What provides a win?||Payout (Standard game)|

|Halfs||Bet the number will be either 1-18 or 19-36||1/1|
Bankroll in Roulette
If you’re looking to play the game of roulette, there is one area of the game that is more crucial than any other and that is setting a bankroll. The greatest casino game players including Bryce Carlson and Russ Hamilton all set up a patient approach using a bankroll and alternate strategies to last the length of game they wish to participate in. Throwing all your money at a 50/50 may work 50% of the time, but it also fails 50% of the time and we know that if you’re looking to play live casino games you definitely don’t want to lose your money in a single turn which is exactly what you prevent with this. To give you a helping hand we’ve split up our ideal bankroll into three areas; expectations, time and reality.
