Basic Rules Of Roulette

The croupier, a person representing a gambling establishment, throws a ball in the opposite direction from the rotation of the wheel itself and it spins. The ball is usually made of ivory. While the wheel is spinning, the ball makes several revolutions along the wheel. After it stops, the ball falls into the hole designated under each number.

To win, the player needs to guess exactly the number at which the ball will stop.

Roulette rules more than simple. The participant needs to exchange cash for chips (chips) for the game. The participant has the authority to place the amount until the dealer says “bets have been made”. In different casinos, the game proceeds differently. This takes into account the number of players, as well as the intensity of the game itself. With a large number of players, the dealer’s assistant works together with the dealer, who takes over part of the dealer’s duties.


Now about the rates. In every gambling house, the roulette wheel, the rules of which are almost the same, has a certain amount of money that the player can bet. The amount can be different even when you are in one casino, if there are several gaming tables. Roulette rules in casinos allow several types of bets. You can bet a certain amount on one number, on a series of numbers, on a single column. Also, the participant can put money on the color of the cell (red or black) and so on, focusing on the specifics of the numbers. As in any gambling game, there is a risk in roulette, so the amount of bets is directly proportional to the risk itself.

European Roulette

There are several types of roulette. European roulette is considered to be one of the earliest types. European roulette has another name “roulette with one zero”. The wheel includes 37 number slots. The numbering starts from 1 to 36, and the thirty-seventh cell is indicated by the number “0” (hence the name).

European roulette rules are divided into two types: En Prison and La Partage. In the first variant, bets are made on equal chances (color, number size, as well as odd and even). If the intended number does not fall out, the bet does not expire, but remains until the next playing.

European roulette rules in the second version (La Partage). They imply the loss of half of the bet in case of “equal chances” if the ball stops at “zero”.

American Roulette

There is another type of roulette game, American roulette. This type appeared a little later than the European version of the game. American roulette has 38 cells on the wheel (additional cell “00”). American roulette rules, which are almost the same as in the European version, have slight differences. The bet can be placed on two numbers “0” and “00”. Or you can bet on a combination of any number with “0”.

The bet can also be placed on the contact of four numbers and so on. The sizes of bets are negotiated in each separate casino. In American roulette, some casinos provide the player with the Change, when the player, by placing bets on “equal” chances, loses only half of the amount wagered. At the same time, the casino always wins, since the casino’s winning amount is approximately 2.63% (on average).

French Roulette

French roulette rules are similar to European roulette. The wheel also has 37 numbers. The difference is noticeable on the playing field. There are about ten types of bets in French roulette. Internal bets are bets when chips are placed on cells located on the playing field. If the chips are placed on the side of the squares on which the numbers are indicated, then such bets are called outside. In this way, you can put on columns, choose a cell color, put on a dozen (12 digits).

Both in European roulette and French roulette, the player has the opportunity to make oral bets. In order to make such a bet, the player must notify the dealer about this. He places the chips in a special way. The first variant of “oral bets” has four ways to place bets: Thiers, Zero Spire, Orfolines and Voisin de Zero. Another variant of verbal betting is when the player wishes to bet chips on all numbers that have the same number at the end, for example, 4, 14, 24, 44, and so on. “Neighbors”, a verbal bet, when a chip is placed on one number, but also touches adjacent numbers.
