Roulette is played on a table consisting of two parts: a wheel and a layout (the table). The wheel is divided around its perimeter into 38 randomly numbered compartments; 1 through 36,“0” and “00”. Eighteen of the numbers are red, 18 are black, and “0” and “00” are green.
The same numbers appear sequentially on the layout, which serves as the betting surface. Also included on the layout are spaces for betting red and black, odd and even, and a variety of number combinations.
Players make wages on one or more of the numbers and/or combinations. The dealer then spins the wheel in one direction, and spins a small ball in the opposite direction. As the ball slows, it drops into one of the numbered compartments, thus indicating the winning number. The dealer then places a marker on the winning number on the layout. If the marked number is included in one of a players bets, he or she wins – if not, the player loses.
A wager may be made in gaming chips or by specially designed Roulette Checks. If Roulette Checks are used, a specific color will be assigned to the player to eliminate confusion.
The value of a check is determined by the amount the player paid for it.
Payoffs on bets depend on how many possibilities are covered – the fewer the possibilities, the higher the payoff. After all bets have been taken or paid, new bets are made and the ball is spun again.
