Rules and Strategies for Roulette


Roulette offers the greatest variety of possible ways you can wager. If you've never tried it, the game is easy to learn and we'll show you strategies that will help make you a winner. Remember that luck comes easier if you know what you're doing.

Even though there are 11 different kinds of bets, it is an easy game to play. The only skill required is deciding how much and on which number(s) to bet. Like in all gambling, if you ant to win at Roulette you must rely on both luck and strategy.

Roulette is played on a wheel having 38 compartments numbered 1 to 36, 0 and 00. The same numbers are printed on the table lay-out where wagers are placed. The number fields are alternately red and black, except 0 and 00 which are green. The numbers themselves alternate between high/low and odd/even, with the 0 directly opposite the 00. The wheel spins counter-clockwise while a little white ball rolls in the opposite direction. The ball drops into one of the slots and that is the winning number.

Look at the table layout carefully you'll see that there are "inside" and "outside" sections. You'll understand how "inside" and "outside" betting works after you've become familiar with the 11 different types of roulette bets you can make, along with their payoffs:

THE SIX INSIDE BETS:

One Number: Pays 35 to 1. Put your wager on any number from 1 to 36, or 0 and 00. Be sure your chips are inside the square and do not touch the line.Two Numbers: Pays 17 to 1. Place your chip (or chips) on the line between two numbers. If either number comes up you win.Three Numbers: Pays 11 to 1. To choose a row of 3 numbers position your bet on the line that separates the "inside" and "outside" areas.Four Numbers: Pays 8 to 1. To make this bet, place your wager on a four-number intersection. You win if one of the four numbers is hit.Five Numbers: Pays 6 to 1. Don't make this bet! It's the only one that gives the house an extra 2 % advantage!Six Numbers: Pays 5 to 1. This bet is placed between two three-number rows on the line that divides the "inside" and "outside" fields.

THE FIVE OUTSIDE BETS:

12-Number Column Bet: Pays 2 to 1. Put your wager in one of the spots marked "2-1" at the opposite end of zero and double zero.

12-Number Numerical Bet: Pays 2 to 1: Choose between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd twelve. You're betting on numbers 1 to 12, 13 to 24, or 25 to 36 respectively.

18 Numbers Red / Black. Pays 1 to 1. To make this wager, place your chip(s) on the red or black diamond.

18 Numbers Odd / Even: Pays 1 to 1. There are 18 of each. Take your pick.18 Numbers High / Low: Pays 1 to 1. Will the winning number be between 1 to 18, or between 19 and 36?

If the minimum total wager is $5 and you are using $1 chips, you may place one or more in each of 5 different "inside" spots or bet all of them on one number, as long as the total adds up to the table minimum. You may cover as many inside numbers as you wish, as long as the total does not exceed the table maximum.

When making outside bets, you can not divide the table minimum over several fields. The whole amount must be placed as one wager on one decision. You may, of course, place more than one bet and/or bet more than the required minimum, but not more than the table maximum.

Never bet more than you can afford to lose, and always quit when you have won as much as you set out to win - such as double your stake. Start cautiously, until you know exactly how the game works and you feel confident.
