Nothing quite captures the essence of a real casino as roulette, a game thatʼs been around since the 18th century. Many clients love adding roulette to their party because itʼs very easy to play (guests simply choose to place bets on either single numbers or a range of numbers), yet it adds elegance and ambience to any room.
Object of the Game
To win at roulette the player needs to predict where the ball will land after each spin. This is by no means easy. In fact, luck plays an important part in this game. Some players go with the winning numbers, calling them "hot" numbers, and therefore thinking that they're likely to come up more times. Others see which numbers have notcome up for some time and bet on them, believing that their turn is now overdue. Some players bet on many numbers to increase their chances of winning at every spin, but betting in this way considerably reduces the payout. Other methodical players use specific roulette systems or methods, money management systems, or both.
Up to seven players at a single roulette table play against the house, represented by the dealer, who spins the roulette wheel and handles the wagers and payouts. European roulette wheels have 37 slots representing 36 numbers and one zero. Most American roulette wheels have two zeros (one single‐ zero and one double‐zero) and therefore 38 slots.
One difference between roulette and all other table games is that roulette chips have no value denominations printed on them. The roulette table comes with six sets of different‐colored chips, with each set consisting of approximately 100 chips. When a player walks up to the table, they get their own color of chips to use while playing roulette. At the end of play, these colored chips can be exchanged back for standard casino chips with values imprinted on them (e.g., $25's, $50's, $100's, etc.). Players can then take these chips to any other gaming table and continue playing other games.
To play roulette, you place your bet or bets on numbers (any number including the single‐ or double‐zero) in the table layout or on the outside, and when everyone at the table has had a chance to place their bets, the dealer starts the spin and launches the ball. Just a few moments before the ball is about to drop over the slots, the croupier says "no more bets." From that moment on, no one is allowed to place—or change—their bets until the ball drops in a slot. Only after the croupier places the marker on the winning number on the roulette table and clears all the losing bets can you then start placing your new bets while the winners are paid out. The winners are those bets that are on or around the number that comes up. Also, the bets on the outside of the layout win if the winning number is represented.
A bet on one number only, called a "straight‐up" bet, pays 35 to 1.
A two‐number bet, called a "split bet," pays 17 to 1.
A three‐number bet, called a "street bet," pays 11 to 1.
A four‐number bet, called a "corner bet," pays 8 to 1.
A six‐number bet pays 5 to 1.
A bet on the outside dozen or column, pays 2 to 1.
A bet on the outside even‐money bets pays 1 to 1.
