How to Play Roulette


Roulette is fun and easy to play. The Roulette Wheel is marked with numbers 1 through 36 and the 0 .The numbers are alternately coloured red and black, and the 0 is green. Colour and number combinations offer a variety of betting options. Wagers can be placed on individual numbers or groups of numbers.

Roulette chips are different from other casino chips. Each player receives a different colour chip so that players know exactly where they have placed their bets. With up to ten players at one time this helps stop any confusion as to which chips belong to whom.

While bets are being placed, the Dealer spins the roulette ball in the opposite direction of the spinning wheel. Bets may be placed until the Dealer announces “no more bets” as the ball begins to drop. When the ball falls into a number on the roulette wheel, the Dealer places a marker on the winning number on the table layout clears away the losing bets and pays the winning bets.
