Roulette is a game of chance that offers high odds of winning if you know how to play.

If you have been thinking of taking a vacation in Las Vegas or some other gambling destination and you are not familiar with Roulette, you may want to check out a new infographic by GluecksSpielSchule.de. GluecksSpielSchule.de is a gambling school, which is aimed at players that want to maximize their profit expectations in Roulette or Blackjack.

When played strategically, these are the only two casino games that give you a fifty-fifty chance or greater of winning. Roulette is the third most popular casino game in the world, behind slots and craps, and the most popular casino game in Europe. French scientist and mathematician, Blaise Pascal, is often believed to have invented a mechanism similar to Roulette in 1657. He was experimenting with perpetual motion devices at the time. Roulette is French for “little wheel.”

The casino game is nicknamed “the devil’s game,” because all the numbers on the wheel add up to 666. Players can place bets on whether a little ball spun around the wheel lands on a number that is odd or even, or simply the colors red or black. This will give the player a little less than 50% chance of winning. For higher odds and a bigger payoff, players can also bet on a single number or range of numbers.

There are any number of bets that offer a near 50% shot at winning in Roulette. Though the true odds are 37 to 1, winning on a single number wager, the house will pay you 35 to 1. American roulette has the extra '00' number, which gives a house edge of 5.26%, while the European roulette house edge is only 2.7% with the absence of the extra number. The lower the amount of numbers you bet on, the lower the odds of winning are on both types of wheels.

If you plan on taking up gambling, it pays to do your homework and the infographic is a good place to start. Check out the Website also, once you get started, for tips and strategies that are more comprehensive on casino Blackjack and Roulette -- Good luck!
