The aim of Roulette is to correctly guess which of the 37 numbered compartments the ball will land in by placing bets on sections of the table that contain that number.
How to play
- When you buy-in to Roulette, the Dealer will give you uniquely coloured chips, which can only be used on that table and help to keep track of which bets are yours. When you’ve finished playing, simply trade in your colour chips for cash chips, which can be used elsewhere in the casino.
- Before spinning the wheel, the Dealer will invite players to ‘place your bets’.
- The Dealer will then spin the Roulette wheel and rapidly roll a ball into the wheel’s outer track.
- Players may position any number of chips wherever they choose on the table before the Dealer calls ‘no more bets’.
- When the ball comes to a rest, the Dealer will announce the winning number and place a marker on the corresponding location on the table.
- Any bets placed that include this number will be paid out at the odds listed, and losing chips will be removed.
Place your chips carefully as positioning can alter the intention and type of your bet.
Bets and odds
The Roulette table has many options for betting and players may make as many different bets as they choose during a round.
The simplest bets are even money bets, which cover 18 numbers. These include Red or Black, Odds or Evens, and Low (1 to 18) or High (19 to 36). Even money bets double your wager when they win and are a great introduction to playing Roulette. Remember, even money bets come in pairs: when one wins, the other loses.
Note: all wagers lose on zero except for Straight Up bets placed on zero, or those placed in a combination with the numbers 1, 2 or 3 that includes zero.
You can make any number of different bets each round to increase your chances of winning, and several bets can win at the same time! (eg. three separate bets placed on BLACK, EVEN and 3rd 12 will all win if the ball lands on 28). Just remember you’ll also lose any chips that don’t win.

The race track
The race track area on Roulette is used for wagering on numbers side by side on the Roulette wheel. It displays the order of the numbers as they are seen on the wheel. The Dealer must place all wagers on the racetrack. If you want to place a bet on 5 and the neighbours, you are betting on number 5 and two numbers each side of 5 on the wheel (eg. 5, 10, 16, 23 and 24).
The section bets are of French origin and cover 4 sections of the Roulette wheel. The sections consist of Serie 5/8, Orphelins, Serie 0/2/3/and 0- Spel.
