How Do I Play?

In roulette a croupier spins a wheel in one direction, and then spins a ball in the opposite direction around the perimeter of the wheel. The ball drops onto the wheel and eventually lands in one of 36 (in European roulette) or 37 (in American roulette) coloured and numbered pockets on the wheel. The pockets are numbered 0-36, with a single 0 green pocket in European roulette, and 0 and 00 green pockets in American roulette.

Variety Of Bets

You can place a variety of bets, all based on which pocket they believe the ball will land on the wheel. You can make "inside" bets (picking the exact number of the pocket the ball will land in) as well as "outside" bets (picking various groupings of pockets, pocket colours, or whether it will land in an odd or even numbered pocket). Payouts are based on specific posted odds at the table, as far as which bets pay off what amount.

What Are The Odds?

While you have lots of options when it comes to betting at the roulette table, the odds of most of them are exactly the same. Overall, the house advantage for American roulette is about 5.25%, and is about 2.7% for European roulette.
