One of the oldest and most famous casino games. The
roulette wheel has 37 separately numbered slots alternately coloured red and
black, the "0" is green. The dealer releases a ball into the spinning wheel. The
objective is to predict which of the 37 numbers on the wheel the ball will stop
To place a bet, select your chip value from the BANK window and then click directly on the area of the table on which you wish to place your bet. Multiple clicks will increase the number of chips you bet. To remove a chip, click the Clear Last button. Or alternatively click Cancel to remove all chips from the table. All bets must be placed before the timer shown in the BANK window runs out.
The dealer will spin the wheel and release the ball. Once the ball has come to rest the dealer will announce the winning number and all bets will be settled automatically. The timer will then begin counting down to the start of the next game.
There are a number of different bets that you can make in Roulette. These are split into Inside Bets which are bets made onto the numbered section of the table, and Outside Bets which are made on the other areas.
Straight Up Bet - A bet on an individual
number. The simplest roulette bet with the highest payout chance. This bet pays
at 35 to 1 plus the original stake.
Split Bet - A two number bet which is placed on the line connecting the two numbers. For example covering 24 and 27. This type of bet pays 17 to 1 plus the original stake.
Corner Bet - A four number bet, placed at the corner of 4 numbers. For example covering 8, 9, 11 and 12. This bet pays 8 to 1 plus the original stake.
Street Bet - A three number bet, placed at the end of a row of numbers. For example covering 13, 14 and 15. A street bet pays 11 to 1 plus the original stake.
Line Bet - A six number bet placed at the junction of two street bets. Covering for example 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 and 36. Line bets pay 5 to 1 plus the original stake.
Special Bets - These are a number of multiple bets that are traditional to the game. Each bet covers a different group of numbers. These bets are available through the special bets button. Payouts vary for these bets.
Column Bet - A 12 number bet, which
covers all of the numbers in the corresponding column. This bet pays at 2 to 1
plus the stake.
Dozen Bet - Another 12 number bet. Players can choose from first 12 (covering 1-12), second dozen (covering 13-24) or third dozen (covering 25-36). Again this bet pays 2 to 1 plus original stake.
Colour Bet - An 18 number bet, which covers all the red numbers or all the black numbers. Colour bets pay at 1 to 1 plus original stake.
Even/Odd Bet - An 18 number bet in which the player chooses to bet on any odd number or any even number. This bet pays 1 to 1 plus original stake.
High/Low Bet - Another 18 number bet covering either 1-18 or 19-36. Again this bet pays 1 to 1 plus the original stake.
Please note that any even money bets will be lost if the ball lands on zero.

Although the table layout is different from the European version, French
Roulette is played in exactly the same way. There is, however, one difference;
the rule of La Partage.
The rule of 'La Partage' provides you a significant statistical advantage that you do not have in other roulette variations. According to the rule of La Partage, you lose only half of your bet, not all of it, if you place an even money on outside bets and the ball lands on zero. This rule operates in a similar way to the En Prison rule in European roulette.
The wheel in American Roulette includes the numbers 1-36 plus a single 0 (zero) and a double zero (00).
