Roullete is a casino game where a ball rolls around a wheel and players place bets on the numbers it will land on. The game has a long history of glamour and mystery, but it also offers surprisingly deep strategy for those willing to spend some time learning the rules.
The croupier spins the wheel and rolls a small ball in one direction around a tilted circular track that runs all the way around the outside of the wheel. Players can make bets on individual numbers, various groupings of numbers (such as red or black), or odd or even numbers. Depending on the type of bet, players can win a certain amount depending on their odds of winning.
Each roulette table carries a placard that describes the minimum and maximum bets allowed. Each bet is made by placing chips in the appropriate spots on a betting mat. Players must bet within their budgets, and should avoid using chips on bets they cannot afford to lose.
When a player wins, the dealer places a marker on the winning number and clears off the losing bets. Then the winners are paid and the process starts again. It’s a good idea to cash out as soon as you win, and not use your winnings on future bets. This prevents you from becoming emotionally attached to the game and over-betting on subsequent rounds.
Some players like to watch other players, hoping they know something the others don’t or attempting to do the opposite of their opponents’ actions. This won’t improve your odds more than simply betting randomly.
The eponymous whiskey from the acclaimed Deadwood series is a well-made rye with an appealing price point. While it does not compete with the likes of Old Overholt or Rittenhouse in terms of quality, it is a solid choice for those seeking an affordable bourbon.
