American Roulette plays off of a wheel with both a zero pocket, and a double zero pocket. An American Roulette wheel has 38 numbers in total, two being green pockets that cannot win on outside bets, while the European wheel has 37 numbers in total, with one green pocket that cannot win on outside bets.
Roulette is one of the most popular and oldest games played in today at Casinos.
In Roulette the bets are placed on an area of the table marked with separate boxes, with each box containing individual numbers. This marked area is called the game layout, and you may place bets on any particular number, any 4 adjacent numbers, a column or a dozens bet.
The wheel is used to determine the outcome of a game of Roulette. Once the bets have been placed on the table, the wheel is set to start spinning and a small – usually metal or ivory – ball is spun onto the wheel in the opposite direction to that of the spinning wheel. The ball will lose speed and eventually stop in one of the numbered pockets in the Roulette wheel. The number the ball stops on is the winning number.
There are two basic steps to follow to play a game of Roulette.
First you must decide on the numbers, or groups of numbers, that you want to bet on. You can place the chips on individual numbers or on the borders shared by two or more numbers.
Once you have placed your bet click the Spin button to start the game. The wheel will spin and the ball is then spun onto the wheel in the opposite direction to that of the spinning wheel. It will soon come to a stop in one of the numbered pockets on the wheel.
If the ball lands on a number that falls within the range of, or meets, any of your bets then you have won. Refer to the Table Limits and Odds section to find out more about how much each type of bet is worth. Playing online all winning bets will automatically be deposited to your player account.
