Have you ever stepped up to a roulette table in Vegas or at your local casino and felt your heart race?

Have you ever turned around and walked away from the table because you are unsure of yourself?

anxiety while playing the game of rouletteAre you interested in just playing roulette for fun, but are worried that people will laugh at you because you don't really know what you are doing?

If any of these three things apply to you, then don't worry - everyone has felt this type of anxiety the first time that they step up to a roulette table. It's natural.

People aren't born professional gamblers. There was a time in their lives where they were just as unsure of themselves as you are.

If you are planning on playing in a live casino, be sure to remember a few things:

1. No one cares if you don't know what you are doing. They really don't. The people that are the most fun at the tables are the people who are just having a good time. When you walk up to the table, announce to the crowd that you have no idea what you are doing. Everyone will get a good laugh and help you place your bets. In a few minutes, you will feel like a seasoned pro.

2. It's the dealers job to explain the game to you and make you feel comfortable. The dealer will help you place your bets, and also help you to feel comfortable at the table.

3. Realize that roulette is a social game. Again - just have fun.

If you are really unsure of yourself at the table, then you always have the option of playing roulette at home on your computer. There will be nobody watching, and the game software will help you to place your bets. If you really don't enjoy the idea of playing in a live setting, then playing online will take all of the anxiety away for you.

That being said - every person should try playing roulette in a live setting. It's a great deal of fun.
