Whether you like high risk casino games or low risk casino games, high stakes or low stakes online Roulette is a game for all which is probably  why it is the most played game in casinos worldwide. The game is simplicity itself and involves predicting where the ball will land on a roulette wheel having 37 different sections (1 through 36 and a zero). American Roulette has a double zero (00) as well but the game should be avoided if European Roulette is available. Minimum stakes in a land based casino can be quite high, often €10 or more but when playing roulette online can be very small if you choose the right online casino. A low risk/ low reward strategy can be employed by betting on red/black or odd/even giving a slightly less than 50/50 chance of winning and a payout of 1 to 1 (the zero is neither red nor black so either bet loses when the zero comes up). This bet is effectively on 18 different numbers but you can also bet on 12 numbers at a time by placing bets on columns which each contain 12 numbers or on 1 to 12, 13 to 24 or 25 to 36 all of which pay out at 2 to 1. The good thing about roulette betting is that you do not need to be clever about betting; if for example you place a bet of 12 chips on a column and you win, you will receive 24 chips as winnings but your original stake remains and can be withdrawn leaving you with 36 chips. If on the other hand you bet 1 chip on 12 different numbers and one of them comes up you will Have 11 losing bets but the one number that wins will pay out 35 chips plus your original stake leaving you again with 36 chips. There is therefore no betting strategy for roulette, decide your stakes and level of risk and go for it; it is not for nothing that playing roulette is so popular in online casinos.
