Roulette Table: How to Play the Game

Aug 17, 2007
Roulette is one of the most famous games played in casinos. The object of the game is to guess on which numbered-slot of the wheel the ball will land. Each roulette table has a unique and distinctive set of chips. The chips can only be used in the roulette table where it was purchased. When you purchase them, the value of your chips is determined by the minimum limit of the game.

The roulette wheel is comprised of 37 segments that are numbered 0 to 36. (The European version of the game uses a 36-slot wheel). To begin the game, the dealer spins the wheel in one direction and releases a small white ball in the other direction.

The players can place bets on the roulette table until such a time that the dealer announces, "No more bets." Whichever segment the ball lands, the winner is determined if the slot number corresponds with the roulette table number where he placed his bet. The dealer calls out the winning number and places a marker on the roulette table to distinguish it from al the other bets. After the roulette table is cleared of the losing bets, the dealer pays the winners. Players can then place in new bets on the roulette table when the dealer says, "Place your bets."

The Roulette Table Layout

There are 13 types of bets you can make using the roulette table layout. The Straight Up (A) or One Number means that you are placing your bet on any of the 37 single numbers indicated on the roulette table. So for instance, if you place an A bet on 34 Red, it means that you're guessing the white ball will land on that specific number indicated on the wheel.

The second type of bet is the Split (B) or Two Numbers. This is where you place a bet between two numbers on the roulette table. So if you place a B bet between 32 Red and 33 Black, you have a 17 to 1 chance of hitting either number.

The Street C or Three Numbers lets you post a combination of bets on the line adjoining three numbers. Your payout odds of placing this kind of bet is 11 to 1.

The Four Numbers (D) or Corner bet is when you place a bet for a combination of four numbers. On the roulette table, you may also place in the Six Line (E) or Six Numbers bet, the Column (F), and the Dozen (G). There is also the Low (H) bet where you can bet for the numbers 1 through 18 and the High (I) for the numbers 19 through 36. The Odd, the Red, and the Black are all even-money bets which you can also place on the roulette table.
