How to Play Roulette

Roulette is a simple and slow-paced game that you'll find in any casino. Compared to other table games, roulette tends to be more of a social game rather than a match between players. Playing roulette is really very easy.

You will be using a different set of chips when playing roulette. A roulette table will use its own set of chips that is quite different from the regular chips used in the casino. One reason for doing this is to distinguish one player from another.

Each player will be assigned chips of a different color to distinguish one player's chips from another's. Most of the time chips will have no distinguishing marks on them. The dealer is responsible for tracking the amount of money the chips represent. The dealer will use a lammer to indicate the value of a stack of chips on the roulette table.

Roulette game play is truly very simple. Just choose a bet you're going to make, place your bets, and see where the ball lands on the roulette wheel. By checking out the roulette table lay out you'll immediately notice that there are hundred places to make your bets.

When you understand how the roulette table lay out works then you'll see just how easy betting is done. You'll immediately notice that there is a main grid of numbers that correspond to the numbers on the roulette wheel.

The color of each number on the roulette table is also the same with that of the wheel. The numbers on the roulette table are divided in rows and columns. Not only that, the numbers are also grouped into three with 12 numbers in each group.

You can make a bet on any number on the roulette wheel by placing a bet on that specific number. You can also bet on a row or column of numbers. You can even bet on a group of 12 numbers. Roulette players are also allowed to bet on the color that the ball will land on and not on the number itself. You do that by placing a bet on either the red box or the black box.

You can even bet if the number will come up is even or odd. You can also bet that the ball will land on any of the first 18 numbers or last 18 numbers.

Any roulette player can place bets even while the ball is still spinning. The definitive time to stop placing bets in roulette is when the dealer says no more bets are allowed or when the ball finally comes to a rest on the roulette wheel.

At this point the dealer takes the chips of the losers and pays off the winners. Playing roulette is that simple. Roulette's simplicity and the congenial atmosphere make it very popular in a casino.
