Pick your numbers between 00, 0 or 1-36. Pick your colors, red, black or green. Don’t take your eyes off the silver ball as it drops into a slot on the roulette wheel and prepare to cash in your chips.

How To Play Roulette

The Roulette wheel has 36 numbers plus a “0” and a “00.” The numbers are alternately colored red and black with the “0” and the “00” in green. There are many different wagers available. As many as 18 numbers can be bet with a single chip and payouts can be as high as 35 to 1. Play begins when the players have placed most of their bets on the number layout. To avoid confusion, each player is given chips of a different color. The dealer spins the ball in the opposite direction of the wheel. Bets may be placed until the dealer calls “no more bets.” After the ball lands on a number, the dealer then places a marker on the winning number, clears the layout and pays the winning bets accordingly. Table minimums are posted at each roulette table. Color chips have no value on any other game, so it is important to exchange them for value chips before leaving the table.
