Rules for Playing Roulette
Roulette consists of a wheel with 38 numbers, including the numbers 1-36, 0, and 00.
The numbers on the wheel alternate pairs of odd numbers with pairs of even numbers and alternate between black and red. The two zeros are green in color and are placed at opposite ends of the wheel.
The object of the game is to determine which number or color the ball will ultimately land on.
In Roulette the player places a bet on a number, color, or group of numbers on the Roulette table.
The more numbers they bet, the lesser the odds and therefore winnings. The dealer will always announce “No More Bets” when he or she is about to spin the wheel.
The dealer spins the roulette wheel in one direction, while rolling a ball into the wheel in the opposite direction and winnings are determined by the slot on the Roulette wheel where the ball finally stops.
The amount of the payoff depends on how the bet was placed.
There are two types of Roulette bets:
*inside bets and outside bets.
There are 6 inside bets:
straight bet, split bet, street bet, corner bet, five number bet, and a line bet. There are three basic
even-money, column, and dozen bets.
You can place as many different types of bets at any time. There are no limits to the number of wagers placed on each spin.
You can bet on one number by placing a chip in the center of the number you want to place your bet on (1-36, 0, 00). If that number wins you are paid 35 to 1.
Split Bet or Two Number Bet:
You must place your chip on the line between two separate numbers. If the ball lands on either of these numbers you win. The pay out is 17 to 1.
Street Bet or Three Number Bet:
This allows you to cover three numbers in a row with one bet. To make this bet place your chip in the outside line of the row you want to bet on. If one of these three numbers comes up, you win. The pay out is 11 to 1.
Place your chip in the center of four numbers and if one of these numbers comes up you win. Pays at 8 to 1.
The only five number bet you can make is on the numbers 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3. Place your chip on the outside line that divides the 0 and 1. If any of these 5 numbers comes up you will be paid 6 to 1.
Six Line Bet:
Allows you to bet on two rows of three numbers. Place your chip in between the outside line of the last numbers of the two rows. If any of the 6 numbers come up you will be paid 6 to 1.
