Just like Blackjack, Roulette is well-loved and famous casino table games, and is extremely easy to pick up and learn how to play. The online versions of the game are also easy to learn, and playing online is no different, even if you are a complete beginner.

Roulette is a casino game, that utilizes both a table and a wheel. Roulette players place chips on a table to signify making a bet. This is done for specific numbers, either red or black, or a combination of colors and numbers. A ball is then spin on the roulette wheel, and the outcome of the spin is determined by which 'pocket' of the wheel that the ball drops into. If your bet matches the result of this spin, then you win!

At PokerNews we love a classic game of roulette, and we also love writing about it, so you'll find a number of guides included here for your benefit. All our roulette guides can be found in our Roulette Hub.
