How to Play Roulette Online

There are not many rules for online Roulette, bets are placed by placing chips on to the Roulette table in an area known as the layout, players bet on one number, a selection of numbers or colour of where the ball will land on the Roulette wheel to win. The Roulette wheel is spun in one direction and a white ball is spun around the outside of the wheel in the opposite direction. As the ball slows "No more bets!" is called by the croupier, it falls towards the centre of the wheel where it lands in a slot in a tiled track with a corresponding number which reveals the winners. The croupier marks on the layout the winning number by placing "the dolly" on the winning number. The croupier also known as the dealer is responsible for spinning the wheel and the spinning of the ball along with collecting all loosing bets and paying out to all winning players.

When playing Roulette you have a few options when it comes to betting. Bets can be placed as an inside bet or an outside bet which can also be called inside stake or outside stake.

17 to 1 payouts are paid when the player has bet on any 2 numbers joined vertically or horizontally or the 0's row.

35 to 1 payouts are paid when the player has bet on a single winning number, 0 or 00.

Roulette Table and Wheel

The actual layout of the Roulette table changes between the different variations of Roulette. The European and French style or Roulette has one 0 on the wheel and an American style Roulette table has a 0 and double zero on the wheel, the layout also reflects this change so that players can bet accordingly.

European and American Roulette tables have the wheel at one end of the table where as a French Roulette table has the wheel in the centre of the table however these are normally only found in Monte Carlo and is very rare to be found in online Roulette as the wheel is normally at one end of the table / layout regardless of having a French layout or an European / American layout.

The Roulette wheel decides the outcome of all the bets, as mentioned above, online there are different variations and many of these variations are focused on the wheel, you would be very unlikely to see these variations in live casinos and especially not all together in one casino like you do in an online casino.
