How to Play Roulette

Roulette is a very easy to learn and really exciting game.Due to its variety of combinations and bets it might seem difficult to understand. The truth is exactly the opposite.

Roulette is played on a table featuring a betting area and the roulette wheel. This wheel consists 38 compartments with numbers from 1 to 36, which are colored black and red, and two green compartments with 0 and 00. Most casinos have 00 on their wheels to increase the odds to their advantage. Before you can place your bet on a roulette table you first have to get special roulette chips from the dealer at the table. Every player has different colored chips for easier identifying.

The game starts after the players have made most of their bets by placing them on the numbered layout. You will see the layout explained below. The dealer then spins the wheel in one direction and the small ball in the opposite one. This doesn't mean you can't place any more bets. You can place bets until the ball leaves the track and falls onto the spuned wheel.

The dealer will then say "No more Bets!". The ball then falls into one of the wheel's numbered compartments which determines the winning number. After the wheel stops the dealer will then mark the winning number on the betting area and the bets are paid accordingly.
