How to Play Roulette


ROULETTE

Want a game that moves quickly and gives you many ways to bet? Then Roulette is for you.

In Roulette, you can bet straight up, which means your bet is on any of the 38 single numbers which include 0 and 00. Also, you can place combination bets–bets divided over a combination of adjoining numbers. Look at the Roulette table in the diagram. Here you see letters that represent the various types of bets in the game. The chart shows their winning odds.

For instance, if you placed an “A” type bet, it could be on the number shown, or any number on the table. Or, perhaps you want to place an “H” type bet. You can place it on the line adjoining 13, which pays on 13,14 and 15. Or, you could place an “H” type bet on the line adjoining 31, where it pays on 31,32, and 33.

Caution: Where you place your chip or chips on the Roulette table is very important because this determines your bet. Use our diagram as your guide. It is the player’s responsibility for proper placement.

Now for the game. The dealer spins the Roulette wheel in one direction and a small white ball in the opposite direction. Bets may be placed on the Roulette table until the dealer announces “no more bets.”

When the ball comes to rest, the dealer calls out the winning number and places a marker on it. First the table is cleared of losing wagers and then all winners are paid.

During this time, please don’t touch the table. Wait until the dealer announces, “place your bets,” to put chips down.

When you place an even money bet—on 1–18, 19–36, Odd, Even, Red, or Black—and the ball comes to rest on 0 or 00, you only lose half your bet. When the same bet occurs on a single “0” Roulette table, you lose all your bet.

If you’re wondering how your bet is kept separate from everyone else’s, it is because different colored chips are used. The value of the colored chips is determined by the player when purchasing a stack or stacks of chips. The value of a stack of color is indicated by a numerical marker button placed on top of a chip of that color. (20 indicates $20 per stack, 10 indicates $10 per stack, etc.) These chips must be redeemed before you leave that particular table.
