How To Play Roulette
Learning how to play roulette is easy and it’s a fun game. Roulette’s origins can be traced back to 18th century France and the game is still a casino favorite today. The next time you visit a gambling hall try your hand at this ancient game of chance.
- Buy roulette tokens or get chips. You can’t make a bet with cash. Place the money you wish to exchange in front of the dealer on the table and let him know you wish to buy in.
- Wait for a new spin.
Make your bet by placing your chips or tokens out on the layout.
- To bet on an individual number place your bet directly on this digit. If the number comes up during the spin you win 35 times your original bet.
- Instead of a specific number you can bet that the winning number will be red, black, even or red. To do this place your bet inside the red and black colored squares located on the outer rim or the sections marked “Even” and “Odd.” If you win your bet will be paid even money.
- You can also bet on sets of numbers. If any number in your set wins, you win the bet. Winnings vary depending upon the number digits in your set. Set options include a dozen (the first second or third set), a vertical row of 12 numbers, a square of four adjoining numbers and a street which is composed of three sequential numbers on a horizontal row.
- Watch the spin. Once the dealer waves her hand over the roulette table no more bets can be made.
- Listen for the results. The dealer will call out the results before placing a glass maker out on the winning number.
- Wait until the dealer clears the board before collecting your winnings.
You can’t hand anything to a casino dealer directly. This includes money you wish to exchange, tips and everything else. Place anything you need to give to the dealer on the roulette table and he will pick it up.
Each spin of the roulette wheel is an independent trail. The results from the last two, three, ten, or 50 spins has no bearing on the next.
