European Roulette - Rules, Tips & Casinos
How To Play European Roulette
Roulette is a banking game; all bets are placed against the house. You bet on the layout for a number, group of numbers or colour that you expect to win. After all bets are placed for that turn, the dealer tosses the ball along the wheel’s rim. After the ball comes to rest in a winning number, the bank pays you or collects from you. Bets can then be placed again for the next spin.
The chips’ values are set for the table. For example, if you are playing a $5 table, each of your chips will be valued at $5. You can place a bet before every spin of the wheel. The bet you make must meet the minimum bet requirement for the table. You can place as many chips on the table at a time as you like (up to the maximum limit).
The roulette wheel is divided into sections 37, each of which has walls to hold a small ball where it lands after the wheel is spun. The sections are numbered from 1 to 36, (half red and half black, half odd and half even) plus a green section marked 0.
Numbers 1 to 18 are considered the lows and numbers 19 to 36 are the highs.
The La partage rule specifies what happens with the stakes when the zero wins. All even-money bets, i.e. red/black, even/odd, 1-18/19-36 lose half of their value, all other bets except for bets on zero itself lose.
The two types of bets allowed on the Roulette layout are combination bets and straight bets.
Roulette Combination Bets
Combination bets refer to the bets you make by placing your chip on the lines between the marked boxes to include more than one box in the bet. These bets have different odds than the straight bets.
Inside Bets (or straight up)
Pay 35 to 1 – place any chip on any single number
Pay 17 to 1 – place a chip on the line between any two adjacent numbers. If either number comes up, you win.
Street (Trio or Three Number) Bets
Pay 11 to 1 – place a chip on the horizontal line across the top of the layout on any number of the twelve columns of three numbers. You get all the numbers in the street.
Quad (Corner) Bets
Pay 8 to 1 – place a chip between any four number groupings (for example 4, 5, 7, 8) and you get all four numbers in that group.
Pay 6 to 1 – the only possible five number grouping in the Roulette layout is 0, 00, 1, 2, and 3. Place the chip on the upper horizontal line between the 00 and the 3.
Double Street (Six number) Bet
Pay 5 to 1 – place a chip on the outside line between adjacent streets to get all six numbers in the double streets.
A straight bet is any bet you make by placing your chip outside the 36 numbers marked on the layout. Straight bets include the dozens bet, the column bets and the outside bets.
Pay 2 to 1 – place a chip in the 1st 12 (1 to 12), 2nd 12 (13 to 24) or 3rd 12 (25 to 36)
Pay 2 to 1 – place a chip in a box at the end of one of three columns
Outside (Even money) Bets
Pay 1 to 1 – place a chip in Odd or Even, Black or Red, High or Low
Roulette Winning Tip
Roulette is the simplest of all table games found in casinos. Players have all kinds of strategies for winning but the key here is money management. Determine your bank roll including how much you are willing to win and walk with then stick to it. This is not a game we recommend spending a lot of time playing but rather what we call a hit, win and run game. Some players use this game to hopefully win quick on to build up a quick bank roll to play blackjack or poker with. If your looking to just play roulette for fun we recommend online casinos like www.TopHatGambling.com that provide players a chance to play for free or test their strategies before playing for real money.
