Faites vos Jeux
Place your bets! For those who aren’t quite so versed in the language of lurve, that’s what Faites vos Jeux translates to and with a game of roulette, that’s exactly what you have to do.
Originating in France back in the 18th century, this increasingly popular casino game is loved by newbies and seasoned casino-goers alike – partly because it’s easy to play and requires little skill, and also
because you can win big bucks if you know the system. If you’re a beginner, learning about the various bets is essential and Jackpot247’s infographic helps to shed light on the game a little more.
The game of roulette almost certainly requires a stroke of luck – after all, it’s where the ball lands on the ‘little wheel’ that determines what you win. However, you can help to increase your chances of a
windfall by placing your bets wisely. The number 17, also known as the James Bond number, is the most popular number going – whether it’s a wise bet or not is completely up to you, though!
In all, there are 22 different bets that can be placed in a game of roulette and if you stick to the European table, rather than the American one, you have better odds of winning. Naturally, the bets that are available at the table vary, depending on the chance of beating the wheel, and fall into inside bets, outside bets and columns.
A bet based on red/black or odd/even give you the best chance of winning something back, while opting for a ‘straight up’ bet, which involves picking a single number (and crossing your fingers intently) gives you odds of 35 to 1. If luck is on your side and the roulette ball lands on your chosen number, you’ll win far more than if you place any other bet, but it could take a while (and a lot of cash) to get there!
Understanding the various bets available at the roulette wheel can be made much easier by taking a look at the infographic. All you have to do then is head to the casino, online or otherwise, and ‘faites vos jeux, s’il vous plait’!
