AMERICAN ROULETTE

Enjoy a classic casino game

The principle of American Roulette is easy: you simply bet which number the ball will land on, before the dealer spins it around the revolving Roulette wheel.


If you’re new to the game or want to brush up your skills, why not let one of our experienced croupiers teach you how to play with our learn to play casino experience, before hitting the tables yourself.

You decide where you think the ball will land by choosing a number or numbers from 0-36 on the Roulette wheel. Each number is either red or black except zero which is green. Placing your bet on the equivalent number on the table, the dealer spins a ball around the revolving wheel. It eventually comes to rest in one of the compartments and that compartment holds the winning number. The dealer will show this on the table layout by placing a marker on the winning number.


You can place bets in the following positions:


  • Even Chances - Red, Black, Odd, Even, High, Low.  – paid 1 - 1
  • Dozens - 1 to 12, 13 to 24, 25 to 36 - paid 2 - 1
  • Columns - 1st, 2nd, 3rd - paid 2 – 1
  • Numbers (straight ups) - 1,2,3,4 etc. - paid 35 - 1
  • Splits - Between adjacent numbers- paid 17 - 1
  • Streets - Strips of three numbers - paid 11- 1
  • Corners - The corner of four numbers - paid 8 - 1
  • Six-Lines - Strips of six numbers - paid 5 - 1


If the ball doesn’t land on your number in the Roulette wheel, you lose your bet to the House. If the winning number is zero all stakes on the even chance bets will lose half of the stake to the house.

The Basics:


Generally, you will be given different coloured wheels chips to play with. These make it easier for both the Players and the Dealer to see whose chips are whose.


  • On the tables you will see an oval track which consists of the wheel numbers in order. This is for the Dealer to place ‘Neighbour bets’: a 5 piece wager covering 5 adjacent numbers, two either side of the number you called. For example, for ‘Zero’ the neighbours will cover 3, 26, 32 and 15 as well as 0. If one of these is a winning number the Dealer will place one of the 5 pieces on to that number.

Intermediate:


You can play specific sections of the wheel. These are known as the French bets and are as follows:


  • ​Voisin is a 9 piece bet covering the following 17 numbers 0,2,3 by 2 pieces, 4/7, 12/15, 18/21, 19/22, 25/28 by 2 pieces, 32/35
  • Tier is a 6 piece bet covering the following 12 numbers 5/8, 10/11, 13/16, 23/24, 27/30, and 33/36
  • Orphelins is a 5 piece bet covering the following numbers 1, 6/9, 14/17, 17/20, 31/34
