Basics of Roulette

Cash in on the fun and excitement of Roulette!

Roulette is one of the world’s most popular casino table games. At first it may seem complicated but in reality it is an easy game to play. Here are some of the basics of Roulette that you should learn before you play.

Layout and Wheel

The layout has a variety of numbers and players will use this layout to place their bets. The Roulette wheel has 38 slots – all are numbered 1 through 36 as well as 00 and 0.

Roulette Play

You are able to bet on any number, red or black, odd or even and combination of numbers. Every player at the Roulette table will receive different coloured chips so it is easier for the dealer to keep track of the bets. There are multiple values of chips available including $2, $1, 50 cent and 25 cent. There are also $100-, $25-, and $5-valued chips as well.

A game of roulette starts when the dealer begins by spinning the Roulette wheel in one direction while rolling the small ball on the edge of the wheel in the opposite direction. The ball will then fall into one of the numbered slots. The slot that the ball lands in is the winning number for that spin.
