Roulette Game Rules

What is Roulette

Next to Blackjack, Roulette is one of the most popular games played in modern Casinos. It is also amongst one of the oldest Casino games. Roulette is somewhat unique amongst modern table games in that it employs a mechanical device as the key element of the game. This is the large and very distinct Roulette wheel, which is mounted horizontally on one end of the table. The hollow of the wheel has numbered pockets ranging from zero to thirty-six (and a ‘00’ in American Style Roulette).

Wagers in Roulette are placed on an area of the table marked with a pattern of boxes and numbers. This is called the game layout. You may place wagers on any particular number, any 4 adjacent numbers, a column or a ‘dozens’ bet.

The wheel is used to determine the outcome of a game of Roulette. Once the bets have been placed the wheel is set spinning and a small (usually metal or ivory) ball is spun onto the wheel in the opposite direction to that of the spinning wheel. The ball will rapidly loose speed and eventually stop in one of the pockets. The number of the pocket is the winning number.

Roulette feautures

The Spin button will start a game of roulette by setting the wheel in motion and injecting the ball onto the wheel. The Spin button will only be available if you have at least one credit on the table.

The table felt is divided up according to the pattern of a traditional roulette table. It is strongly suggested that you read up about the kinds of bets available in the Types of Bets section.

The Repeat/Last Bet button will return the table to the same state it was in before the previous spin of the wheel. It will replace any wagers that were removed from the table.
