Roulette is a game of chance that is widely played in casinos. The object is to try to guess which number the Roulette ball will land on. Players place bets on a mat representing the roulette numbers, and the winners win money according to their bets.
Playing roulette is very simple. You will need :
- the roulette wheel and a ball
- the mat
- single-coloured chips.
In English Roulette, players do not play with the classic casino value chips. They will have to exchange these chips for single-coloured chips at the roulette table. Each player will have chips of their own colour.
How the game works
The players must first exchange their chips to obtain their own single-coloured chips. The value of these chips is determined by the dealer.
Once each player has their own colour of chip, the Roulette wheel is spun without the ball, and the players can begin their bets.
There are several ways to bet on Roulette. All are done by placing bets (chips) on the gaming floor.
- Betting on a single number: the bet is multiplied by 36 in case of a win
- Betting on 2 numbers: it’s the horse, bet x 17
- Bet on 3 numbers: the cross, bet x 11
- Bet on 4 numbers side by side: the square, bet x 8
- Bet on 6 numbers: the sixteenth, bet x 5
- Bet on one column: bet x 2
- Bet on one colour: bet x 1
- Bet on a third (12 numbers): bet x 0.5
Once the bets are made, the dealer throws the ball into the roulette wheel. Once the ball has come to rest on a number, he announces the result and removes the losing bets. He can then pay the winning bettors, of course, according to their bets.
End of the game
The game ends when there is only one player left at the table, and that player is either broke or tired of playing. In tournaments, the last player left at the table wins the game.
