Roulette is fun and easy to play. The Roulette Wheel is marked with numbers 1 through 36 and the symbols “0” and “00”. The numbers are alternately colored red and black, and the “0” and “00” are green. Color and number combinations offer a variety of betting options. Wagers can be placed on individual numbers or groups of numbers.
Roulette chips are different from other casino chips. Each player receives a different color chip and decides the value of the chip when they are purchased. Roulette chips may only be purchased in stacks of twenty. For example: if you would like your roulette chips to be worth $1 each, then you would purchase a stack for $20.
While bets are being placed, the dealer spins the roulette ball in the opposite direction of the spinning wheel. Bets may be placed until the dealer announces “no more bets” as the ball begins to drop. When the ball falls into a number on the roulette wheel, the dealer places a marker on the winning number on the table layout and pays the winning bets.
