If you are interested in making money of gambling, then roulette is not the game to pick. But if you want to have fun and entertain yourself, then this is the best game you can choose out of all casino games. It is a game of chance that relies on luck not strategy, and getting a 35-to-1 payout is always a possibility. You are well advised to try other games if you want to make a steady income by gambling. The best choices in this case are blackjack and poker.
Roulette is a social game. You will not find the roulette crowds at blackjack or poker tables. When playing blackjack you are facing the dealer and have your back to the spectators. Some blackjack players will not look kindly to you sitting behind them. Most poker players are very focused on the game, and do not appreciate crowds distracting them. You will not see any cheering or encouraging at the poker table.
Roulette on the other hand is a very social game. There is a sense of camaraderie because all the gamblers are playing against the house, not against each other. The roulette table itself is built to get people to interact and socialize. It is long and narrow, and you have to stand.
When playing blackjack or poker each player focuses on their individual hand. Each player is dealt cards and they have those cards to focus on. But when playing roulette, all the players are paying attention to the same thing. That thing is the roulette wheel. Also you do not have individual betting areas like in blackjack. Everyone must use the same table to place their bets. If all the players at the roulette decide to place the same bet, and that bet wins, they will all receive a payout.
As many as 50 people have been known to participate in a roulette game, either as players or as spectators. It doesn't get more social than that. You are allowed to cheer and encourage the players. No one will get upset because the game doesn't require a lot of focus. There are not that many things to focus on. All you have to do when playing roulette is to place your bet and wait for the ball to stop on the wining number. Nothing more, nothing less.
Do not take the roulette game to seriously. This game is not meant to generate sensational payouts. It is not meant for the player looking to make money, but for the player looking to have as much fun as possible. So if you want to be entertained, then roulette is the perfect game to play.
