Playing Roulette: The Etiquette


Once you have approach the roulette table, you will now have the chance to place your bet or the money on the layout. Here you will receive some chips from the dealer that you can then use as your bets. You will now have the permission in a certain amount of time to place your bets and then there will be a 1 minute period in between each spin when you can place bets. The dealer will spin the wheel. Now once the dealer has announced this word “no more bets”, its a sign that you have no longer have the chance to place a bet. You will have to wait until the next spin.

The dealer will now put a marker on the roulette table corresponding to the slot where the ball fell and then once the ball drops. He will remove the losing bets and then pay the winning bets. After the winning bets have been paid, he will now remove the marker. Note: Do not touch your markers during this time. You will be asked to leave the casino if you do.

How to Play Online Casino Roulette: The Wheel


The wheel is a wonder of stochastic technology. Essentially a giant bowl, it is almost three feet across, with slightly canted walls. It weighs approximately one hundred pounds, and its surface walls are separated into thirty-seven (or thirty-eight) internal slots, called "pockets". Each pocket is just large enough to hold the twirling ball once it rests.

The pockets alternate between red and black (and odd and even). Each pocket has a number between 1 and 36. The exclusions to this are the zero pockets, which are painted green. The numbers are not in sequence nor are their placements totally random. The numbers have been arranged to attain the best balance between red and black, odd and even and high and low.

If you look at the wheel, you will notice that, placed directly across from each odd number is the next even number. Two odd numbers alternate with two even numbers. You can also see a version of this system near the zero pockets.

Two main types of wheels are available—European American. The sole distinction between the two is that the American version has two zero pockets, single zero (0) and double zero (00), while the European version has only the single zero pocket. This minor modification yields a substantial difference in the casino advantage. With a European wheel, the house advantage is roughly 2.70%, a good deal lower than the American wheel, whose house edge is 5.26%.

Explore the game of Roulette


Modern Roulette has been around since at least 1796, When the game was played in Paris in almost exactly the same form its played today. Let me give you the elements of the game as it is played: black and red slots in the wheels, and then numbers 1 through 36 and a 0 and a 00, etc. Well in Europe, the 00 was eventually removed, but still its a part of the game in the US.

Roulette has its origin in multiple other games. An italian ball game called "biribi" was also popular in France in the early 18th centuryand it was combined with another wheel game that involved colors but not numbers to make a modern roulette game. "Roly-poly" was an English game launched in 1720 which consisted of black and white slots. So roulette could possibly be considered a hybrid of both birib and Roly-poly.

In terms of how they played, roulette is the opposite of the game of craps. Craps might be all about excitement, roulette is all about being dignified and civilized.In terms of table games, roulette consistently makes less money than blackjack, craps, or baccarat, and in some casinos, there is only one roulette table to be found.
