Roulette is a fairly simple game to learn how to play. Most people can pick-up the basics for how to play it within just a few minutes. However, there are a few important roulette terms that people should know.

The first terms are high and low bet. A high bet means you bet on the high numbers (19-36) while a low bet means you bet on the lower numbers (1-18).

A combination bet is any bet that is placed on multiple numbers. And a wager is simply any bet that is placed at the roulette table.

The dealer is the person who spins the roulette wheel. The dealer will let players know when they can no longer place bets for the current spin and at a live casino it's quite a formal procedure.

Beside the above terms, there is one more thing that roulette players should know. That is there are two types of wheels: an American wheel and a European wheel. The American wheel has one more space on it so the odds of winning on an American wheel are slightly less than the odds of winning on a European wheel. As a result of this, roulette players should increase their chances of winning by playing the game of roulette on the European wheel.

While roulette is very easy to play and is just as easy to learn to play, there are a few terms that everyone should know before they actually start laying down their chips at a roulette table.
