Of all the gambling games available in casinos and online casinos the most popular is Roulette and for the simple reason that in roulette gambling you need no knowledge of the game, there is no skill involved and you stand a fair chance of winning as the odds are reasonable. Gambling on roulette is simply trying to predict where the ball will land in the roulette wheel and there are 37 slots in which it may come to rest. As a side note we recommend that you avoid gambling on roulette at a table known as American Roulette as this will have 38 slots on the wheel (there is a “00”)but the payout odds remain the same so your winning chances are reduced. Unfortunately in many places it is only American Roulette gambling that is offered but at online casinos recommended here at gambling.ie both European and French roulette are offered, both of which have 37 numbers. The zero is a critical number in roulette gambling as it is neither red nor black, neither odd nor even and it is not in any of the rows or columns and it is the zero therefore which gives the bank the edge in roulette gambling. Of the other 36 numbers 18 are red and 18 are black, 18 are odd and 18 are even which gives you a 50/50 chance and if you gamble on red or black at the roulette table the odds paid are 1:1 but if the zero comes up you lose. It is of course possible to gamble on zero as a single number and you can win at odds of 35:1. Gambling on the reaming 36 numbers can be done in any combination of single numbers or pairs of numbers or a row of three numbers, adjacent rows of three numbers, columns of 12 numbers etc. but the good thing about gambling on roulette is that the odds paid for any bet are proportionate to the number of numbers backed so just spread your bets around and the best of luck.
