Basics of Roulette

Roulette is the most popular casino table game in the world. While at first glance the roulette table layout may appear quite complicated, roulette is actually a very easy game to play and understand.

The following is the standard roulette layout.

Next to the layout is the roulette wheel, which is divided into 38 slots for the ball to land, and is numbered 1 through 36 and 0 and 00.

You can bet on any single number (straight up), a combination of numbers, or red or black, odd or even.

Each of the one to six players at the roulette table is given different-colored chips so that it's easy to keep track of the numbers on the layout you're betting on.

Each roulette game begins when the dealer spins the wheel in one direction, and then rolls a small ball along the inner edge of the wheel in the opposite direction. The ball eventually falls into one of the numbered slots. That number is the declared winner for that game. In an hours time there are about 60-80 spins of the roulette wheel.
