Next to Blackjack, Roulette is one of the most popular games played in modern Casinos. Roulette translated literally means "small wheel" and it is one of the oldest casino games played today. Roulette is somewhat unique amongst modern table games in that it employs a mechanical device as the key element of the game. This is the large and very distinct Roulette wheel, which is mounted horizontally on one end of the table. The hollow of the wheel contains thirty-seven colored slots numbered from 0 to 36 - half the slots are red and half are black and the 0 is green.
European Roulette is played by spinning a small ball, usually metal or ivory, counterclockwise around a wheel spinning clockwise. When the wheel comes to rest, the ball drops into one of these slots. The object of Roulette is to predict the slot the ball will land in.
Wagers in European Roulette are placed on an area of the table marked with a pattern of boxes and numbers.
This casino version of roulette is played using European Roulette rules and allows players to place all the types bets that they would find at a traditional land based casino.
How to Play European Roulette
There are two basic steps to follow to play a game of European Roulette.
First use your mouse to place chips on individual numbers and the borders shared by two or four numbers. You can also bet on whether the number will be odd, even, black, red, low and/or high, by placing outside bets. Provided you have enough money and do not exceed table limits, you place any number of different bets.
Once you have placed your bets press the SPIN button to start the game. The roulette wheel will spin and the ball will be placed on the wheel. The ball will eventually drop into one of the numbered slots on the wheel. If the number falls within the range of any one of your bets, you win!
