Roulette is one of those classic casino games that every casino has, whether online or land-based. And just like any other casino game, you also have to place a bet in roulette. Whether you're a novice or a pro, placing perfect bets every time is quite a task. That's why we bring to you roulette bet types and which bet types are safer than the other?

The Gameplay of Roulette:

The gameplay of roulette begins in a large round table, and in the center of the table, there's a large wheel with 37 pockets with numbers ranging from 1-37 or 0-36. These 37 pockets are colored in red and black alternatively, and one pocket with the number 0 in it colored in green.

In land-based casinos, there's a casino person who acts as a dealer and places a small silver ball in the middle of that well and then spins it. Players have to guess the current number of the pocket and color where the ball may get stopped. Usually, 1-8 people can participate in this roulette game. The player numbers are limited due to the limited number of chip colors. Players have to place their bet before the dealer calls off all the bets and spins the wheel.
