Gambling has been one of the preferred pastimes from times eternal. People spend their money on a range of casino games, however roulette happens to rule. Russian roulette is by far one of the most dangerous games in gambling. It is forbidden by law since it involves gambling with money as well as one’s life.
Russian roulette involves playing with a gun. A bullet is inserted in the gun cylinder and rotated. It is a norm to insert only one bullet a game and every player is required to fire the gun on him. Obviously, you would win if you don’t get fired and you would lose if you get fired and hence die. Therefore the game is thought to be the most dangerous form of gambling and is prohibited all across the world.
As the name suggests, the game is said to originate from Russia. Formerly, the Russians used to play this game on the prisoners and all those who observed the game would bet their money on them. There are reports that the game is being played secretly, despite being prohibited. A lot of teens are playing this game as a part of the bet on proving them to be brave. However, the amount of players in this form of roulette forms an interesting bet. If there are only two players in the game, there is a larger chance of winning as compared to the one which involves a lot of players.
It was also believed that the first one to be fired had an added advantage for the reason that once you rotate the cylinder, there is a greater chance that the bullet is not set on fire first. On the other hand, being the last one in the group can also get you a fair idea of the trigger. However, such roulette doesn’t offer a chance for practice sessions.
