Roulette Rules

Easy Way Of Following Roulette Rules

Online roulette has become popular and it is being played by people from different walks of life irrespective of their backgrounds. The game usually consists of eight players seated on a roulette table who will play against the house/casino. Each player’s chips are color coded so that the players and the croupier can know how much has been wagered. The different colors of the chips also help the croupier not to get confused when paying out each player.

Understanding the Bets

A player must understand that inside bets have higher payouts than outside bets. Inside bets cover the area that is inside the table layout while outside bets are found on the edges of the board. Inside bets gives you a choice between alternatives such as straight up bets, split bets, or street bets. An outside bet gives you a choice between alternatives such as column bets, dozen bets, low/high bets, Even /Odd bets or black/red bets. The croupier is responsible for handling bets and making payouts to the winning player as well as spinning the wheel.
The roulette table is laid out in a way that makes it possible for the wheel to spin appropriately. The table has numbered squares on it to enable the betting action to take place and for the croupier to keep things organized.

The Proceeds Of the Game

There are typically two wheels namely the European Wheel and the American wheel. The European Wheel has slots representing numbers 1 to 36 and a 37th slot that consists of a Zero. The American variation has 38 slots because it has an additional numbered slot – the double zero slot (00).
The numbers are not sequential so it means that they are not displayed in counting order. If you get confused, the croupier will help clear up the confusion because they are responsible for organizing the betting.
The croupier waits for every player to put in his or her bets before spinning the wheel. After the betting action has taken place on the table, the croupier spins the wheel then throws the ball in the opposite direction of the spinning wheel, and waits until the wheel finishes spinning without interfering with it. However, it is still possible to carry on putting in bets until the ball is just about to stop on a slot.
All the losing bets will be removed from the table and this will happen after the croupier has moved the dolly on the area of the winning number. The croupier will start making payouts to the winning players. At this stage, a new round of betting can start and as soon as all bets are in and the wheel will be spun again.
At the end of the game, the chips can be exchanged for cash. You will be able to take home the money that you have won if you decide not to play anymore. The chips have different values imprinted on them so that the cashier can be able to work out how much to pay you.
