Roulette is most likely one of the most renowned casino games in the world. If you’ve been to the casino before, you’ve undoubtedly seen the roulette tables. On busy nights, the roulette tables are usually packed with people trying their luck for the night.

At the roulette table

A roulette table consists of a round shaped part along with a long table. The table is where the betting happens. You’ll see all kinds of numbers, even/uneven, red/black etc. These numbers represent the different ways you can bet. The round part of the table is where you find the spinning wheel, this is where the real action happens! The wheel consists of numbers from 0 to 37. These alternate between red and black. Only the 0 is green. Aside from that, the wheel is made in such a way that even and uneven, high and low are alternating continuously. Around the roulette table you’ll find chairs for you to sit on while playing. Relax and decide how to bet next from the comfort of your chair.

Behind the table is the croupier, who is in charge of the game. The croupier is the one spinning the roulette wheel, dealing the chips and paying out if you win. If you have any questions, the croupier will be your point of contact. They know all the ins and outs about roulette and can give you good advice on how to play the game.

Placing your bets

Before the game kicks off, you have to place your bet on the table. When time is up, the croupier will take the metal ball (also called ‘pills’) and place it in the spinning wheel. This happens in the opposite direction of the where the spinning wheel turns. When this happens, you can still place bets. Betting is allowed until the croupier says “no more bets”. Then the waiting game begins to see where the ball ends up. As soon as the ball stops, the croupier will call out the number. Then whoever placed their bet on this particular number will receive their payout. The game is done and then it will start all over again!
