To play online roulette, you will need to learn how to bet on the game. This is one of the more complex elements of the game. Since the roulette wheels generally have 35 to 36 slots in them, the easiest bet you can make is a specific number on that wheel. This also gives you the worst odds of winning. However, there are several other ways that you can bet at this game.
For example, you can place your bet on a specific row of numbers on the table. If any of those numbers win, you win. The odds are slightly less at that point. You can place a bet on a color, red or black, or you can go with odds or evens. These betting methods reduce the risk and therefore they do pay out less than picking a specific number would. Betting in roulette is really all about risk taking.
