Roulette is played on a roulette table consisting of a wheel and a surface on which various betting options are included. Roulette numbers alternate pairs of odd numbers with even numbers and alternate between black and red. Zero and double zero are green. The tabletop is arranged so that the 36 numbers are in 3 columns of 12 numbers each. In one round, up to eight players can play, they bet against the house, represented by a manager called the dealer.
Once the players have placed their bets, the dealer sets the wheel in motion and throws in a ball to make it spin in the opposite direction. As the ball slows down, the dealer gestures across the table and announces that there will be no more bets. The moment the ball lands on a number, the dealer puts in a dollar, pays the winning bets, and clears the table surface for the next round.
Bets are placed on the table with colored chips provided by the dealer. The dealer exchanges the winning chips for chips of value that the casino exchanges into cash.
“American” roulette has two zeros, thus providing a higher house edge than “European” roulette with a single zero. The type of roulette that is used impacts the players because the house edge is different, in the case of roulette with only one zero, the house edge is 2.7%, which means that the house has the right of 2.7% of the winnings and, in the case of roulette that has a double zero, the house wins 5.26% of the winnings. Also, there is a tradition of tipping the dealer upon winning. Different roulette tables have different maximum and minimum bets.
Bets on roulette
Each player is assigned a different color token. You can place multiple bets in a single round. Later, you will find the different types of bets with their corresponding results. You will find that bets can be placed on individual numbers, groups of numbers, or types of numbers, that is, on odd or even numbers. For example, if you place a bet on the box on the table that says “odd”, and any odd number is rolled, you win.
Some casinos follow the ‘give up’ or ‘in jail’ rules for even money gambling. In surrender, you will receive half of your winnings in even numbers if the ball lands on a single or double zero. In the case of “in jail”, when a ball reaches 0 or 00, your bet in pairs money stays where it is, its fate will be determined in the next round. In the next round, if you win, you withdraw all your chips with no additional winnings, and if you lose, your bet is cleared. If it goes back to 0 again, your profit will go to jail.
