The Basics Rules for Roulette
Roulette is a game commonly found in casinos. The game is played with a numbered wheel, a small ball and a table with a numbered grid on it running from 1 to 36.
The Roulette table is made up of a numbered grid with 3 groups of 4 rows and 3 columns. Each section has 12 numbers that run in order from 1 to 36; this section is called the inside of the table.
The outside part of the table has a red and black colored patch where you can bet on if the ball will land on a black number or a red number, there is also a place for you to bet if the winning number will be an even number or an odd number and you can also bet on which of the three groups of 12 the winner will be in.
In Roulette the betting is done by placing your chips on whatever bet you want to make. If you want to bet that the winning number will be red you just place your chips on the red box on the table. You can bet on a specific number to win or a group of numbers, if you wanted to bet on 1, 2, 4 and 5 you can do so by placing your chips on the corners of those 4 numbers where they connect, you can also bet on any 2 numbers by placing your chips on the line between the 2 numbers. The amount of money you win does change if you are betting on more then 1 number with the chips. A straight win may pay 8 to 1, but playing 4 numbers will pay 4 to 1.
There are generally 3 different colors on a Roulette table. The first two are red and black, and the third is green. The red and black alternate on the table like a checker board, but the green is only at the top. A roulette table will have either one green spot or two. This depends on if you are playing American Roulette which offers 2 green spots or European Roulette which only has 1. The green spots have the number 0 and 00 in them and these are the highest paying numbers on the table, and offer the best payoff at 36 to 1.
There are also other bets that can be made in Roulette. Besides betting on an individual number you can bet on the color or an entire column or row that will win.
