How to Play Roulette

Roulette is one of the oldest casino games, and is the most popular and widespread of all casino games. The main reason is that it takes no time to learn, and you do not have to remember charts, statistics and records- just follow your gut and instincts!

In Roulette, the player places a bet on a number, color, odds or a group of numbers on the Roulette table. The Roulette wheel and ball are spun, and winnings are determined by where the ball finally stops. The amount of payoff depends on how and where the bet was placed.

Playing Roulette in online casinos is very simple. The table you see is identical to those found in Casinos around the world. The Roulette table is marked with the numbers “0” and “1-36” (or “0” and “00” in American Roulette). The numbers are alternately colored red and black, with “0” and “00” colored green. The player begins by clicking and dragging chips to the desired areas on the table. When you are done, the wheel is spun. When the ball finally stops on a number, winnings are automatically added to your Bankroll. According to the Casino you play at, you may see exactly how much did you win or lose at the last spin of the Roulette, or you may just see the added amount on your account.
