How to Play Roullete

Roullete (roh-lay-t) is a casino game of chance with a variety of betting options. It is easy to play and can be found at almost every casino. It is fun, fast-paced and offers a surprising level of depth for serious betters.

Unlike other casino games, in roulette the players don’t place bets on individual numbers. Instead, they make bets on groups of numbers or colors, odd or even, high or low. It is this type of bet that allows players to win big in this game.

The game is played on a table with a felt that has all the possible bets listed and a wheel. The wheel has slots numbered 1 through 36 and two additional green compartments marked 0 and 00. When a spin is complete, the dealer will throw a ball into one of the slots and the player will win if they correctly guess where it lands.

Before the spin, players lay chips on a specific area of the table. This betting mat is marked with French terms but in American casinos a different style of betting mat and English terminology is used. Players give the dealer their money by placing it down on the table and asking for “colour”. The dealer will then give them coloured roulette chips equal to the value of the amount they have given.

Before the wheel starts to spin, players set a budget for their bets and choose a table within that limit. Each table carries a placard describing the minimum and maximum bets allowed. Some tables allow only $5 minimum inside bets while others have $1,000 maximum outside bets. Once a player has won, they should cash out their winnings as quickly as possible. They should also avoid using their winnings for future bets. This will prevent them from getting caught up in the “sucker bet” – betting against the house in the hope of improving their odds of winning.
