Roulette is a fairly simple game to play. In Roulette you place your bet on a number, row, line, or adjacent numbers. The standard Roulette wheel has 40 spots from 1 to 38 including 0 and 00. After bets are placed
the Roulette wheel is spun and the ball is dropped rolling in the opposite direction of the wheels rotation. The ball will then stop in a number slot and that number is the winning number.
The following are the standard bets you can make and their corresponding payouts:
A bet on a single number pays 35-1.
A Split bet is when a bet is made on any line that divides any two adjacent numbers. This bet is made so that either of those two numbers will be a winner. The payout is 17-1.
A player can bet on three numbers in any vertical row on the table by placing a bet on the line on the bottom of that row. The bet is made so that any of those three numbers will be a winner. The payout is 11-1.
The bet is placed on the middle of four numbers. The bet is that one of these four numbers will be a winner. The payout is 8-1.
This bet is placed on the outside of the lines that split two rows of numbers. This bet covers all six numbers. The bet is that one of the six numbers will be a winner. The payout is 5-1.
This bet is placed on any of the three columns of twelve numbers running horizontally along the table. The payout is 2-1 for a winning bet. If 0 comes up, all column bets lose.
This bet is placed on the outside boxes marked 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The player will bet on numbers 1 to 12, numbers 13 to 24 and/or numbers 25 to 36. The payout is 2-1 for a winning bet. If 0 comes up, all dozens bets lose.
