Roullete Whiskey Review


Roullete is a new entry into the whiskey market that follows the popularity of the Deadwood bourbon in terms of quality and price. It is a high-rye product that sells for around $27-29 per 750ml bottle. This is about the same as the usual go-to bourbons like Old Overholt and Rittenhouse.

The Roulette game has been played for over 300 years. The French mathematician Blaise Pascal is credited with inventing the game at the end of the 17th Century. Since then, it has risen to prominence in Europe and then made its way across the ocean to America.

In the game, players place bets before a small ball is spun in the opposite direction of a revolving wheel. It then drops into one of the compartments where winners will be rewarded according to the betting odds. Bets are placed on specific numbers, various groups of numbers, the color red or black and if the number is odd or even. There are also a variety of other betting propositions including first, second and third dozen as well as columns.

Before the game begins, players place their bets by laying down chips on the table. The precise placement of the chips indicates the bet being made. There are French and English terms on the betting mat and on American tables a slightly different style of mat is used. The bets on six numbers or less are called Inside bets while those on 12 or more are known as Outside bets.

When a player makes a winning bet they inform the dealer that they want their chips parceled out to them. The dealer then marks the amount on her “wheel” of chips and then gives them to the player. If they win a straight-up bet, it will pay out 36 chips on average (as opposed to 35 with the European version). In addition, winning a bet on the 0 will return 392 chips (as opposed to 235 for the other European versions of the game). All of these payouts are subject to tax in the state where you play.
