Unlike card games such as blackjack, the game of roulette is based on luck. Roulette is one of the online casino games such as slots that requires little skill. In fact it is said that Albert Einstein once said you cannot cheat at the roulette table, unless you are stealing money from it! A roulette wheel has either 37 or 38 pockets around the perimeter. A ball circles around the perimeter of the wheel before coming to a stop in one of the pockets. The player places a wager on where he thinks the ball will ultimately land. There really is no strategy the player can use when playing roulette at the online casino. As with all casino games it is imperative that the player fully understands the rules of the game as well as the different betting options that are open to him.
