An iconic casino game, roulette and its black and white checkered board have been around since the 17th century. However, variations of this game can be found as far back as the Middle Ages and perhaps even in antiquity, in Rome. The game of roulette and its rules have evolved over time. In the modern version, which became popular from the 19th century, roulette consists of a wheel, itself containing 37 numbered compartments from 0 to 36 (in European roulette) or 38 compartments (in American roulette).


Before delving into the rules of the roulette game, it is important to understand the objectives and the course of a game. It is possible to play roulette in a casino hall and online. Indeed, in our GAMRFIRST casino game catalog, you have access to a wide range of online roulette games, for hours of entertainment, completely immersive, from the comfort of your home.


Firstly, it should be noted that there are variations of roulette. In European roulette or English roulette, there are 37 compartments (numbered from 0 to 36), in American roulette, 38 (since there's a double 0). Each variant will offer adaptations in terms of the rules of the game, but the objective remains essentially the same. As a player, you must guess in which compartment the ball stops, previously launched by the croupier. To do this, the player announces their numbers and places their bets on the table. It is possible to bet on a single number, a combination of numbers, a color (red or black), or specific characteristics of the numbers (even/odd).


Before the game begins, whether in virtual or physical casino, the player must place their bet on the numbers they wish. When the croupier announces the famous "Faites vos jeux!", bets are placed. The croupier spins the wheel in one direction and the ball in the opposite direction. When the ball finally comes to rest in one of the compartments of the wheel, the croupier announces the winning number and its corresponding color. If your bet wins, the croupier will give you chips corresponding to the winnings of your bet.

Although the game of roulette is based on chance and the course of a simple game, it is one of the most exciting casino games. The launching of bets and the anticipation of results make it an unforgettable and accessible gaming experience for players of all levels.



The roulette board, or roulette table, is the playing area, where the game takes place. It consists of 2 zones:

  • The inner zone is located in the center of the table. It includes the numbers from 1 to 36, as well as 0 (European roulette variant) and 00 (American roulette). This area is colored in red and black, but also in green for 0 or 00.
  • The outer zone gathers the different types of outside bets. Players can place their bets on colors (red or black), even/odd, low/high numbers (1 to 18 or 19 to 36), dozens, and number columns.


The heart of the roulette game lies in the wheel, also called the cylinder or roulette. The wheel is a circular mechanism on which the numbers are arranged in a specific way. It is this element that, when spun by the croupier, will start the game. The wheel spins in one direction while the ball is launched in the opposite direction. When the wheel and the ball slow down, the ball eventually comes to rest in one of the numbered compartments, determining the winning number for that round.



Roulette bets are placed by placing a chip on the chosen numbers for the bet, or on simple chances (red, black, even, odd). Some GAMRFIRST tables require a minimum bet to try your luck. Here are the most common types of bets you can make by placing your chips on the numbers, regardless of the roulette variant:

  • Straight Up Bet

    This is a bet placed on a single number. You must place your chips directly on the chosen number.
  • Split Bet

    This type of bet is placed on the line that separates two adjacent numbers.
  • Street Bet

    Same principle as the split bet, the street bet is placed on a row of 3 numbers.
  • Corner Bet

    For this type of bet, you must place your bet at the intersection of adjacent numbers.
  • Column Bet (12 Numbers)

    For this bet, you place your chips at the bottom of a column of numbers.
  • Dozen Bet

    You should place your chips on one of the boxes marked "P12" (first dozen), "M12" (middle dozen), or "D12" (last dozen).
  • Double Dozen Bet

    You place your bet at the intersection of 2 dozens.
  • Even Money Bets

    This is a bet on a color or on even/odd or low/high. You can choose black or red. You can decide to bet on the ball landing on an even or odd number or on a low (1 to 18) or high (19 to 36) number.

  • Manage your bankroll: Before playing roulette, set a budget and stick to it.
  • Choose the right variant: at GAMRFIRST, our catalog of online roulettes offers you different variants. Choose the one you know best.
  • However, this can help extend your gaming session.
  • Avoid progressive betting systems: some players advise you to play "Martingale". However, this system involves increasing your bets after each loss, in the hope of recovering your losses with a subsequent win. However, these systems can quickly increase your losses. Keep in mind that gambling should primarily be for entertainment.
  • Play for fun: Roulette is above all a game of entertainment. Enjoy the excitement and pleasure of the game rather than focusing solely on winnings. Appreciate the present moment and the joy of treating yourself to a moment of happiness, from the comfort of your home.
