How to play Roulette
To play you must first buy your Roulette chips from the dealer. To do so simply ask for: "A colour please". Roulette chips can only be used on the Roulette table from which you receive them.
The dealer will give you chips that are a different colour to the other players. This makes it easy to identify your winning bets.
Place your chips on whichever numbers you wish. If a section is taken by another player, simply place your chips on top of theirs.
Betting on one number is called 'straight up'. Placing your chips on two numbers is known as a 'split'.
The dealer will spin the wheel in one direction while spinning the ball in the other. You can continue to place bets until the dealer calls "no more bets".
If the ball stops on your number you will be paid out. Winning is that easy!
On a wheel with a double zero, if the ball lands in 0 or 00 all even chance bets lose. On a single zero wheel even chance bets lose half if zero is the winning number.
