What's your lucky number?

Everyone has heard of American Roulette – it's fast paced and simple to play!

Whether you play a single number or a combination of numbers, the excitement builds as the Dealer spins the ball.

If you’re new to the game or want to brush up your skills, why not let one of our experienced croupiers help with a Learn to Play casino experience before you hit the tables yourself?

Roulette is a game of chance. The Roulette wheel is marked with numbers 0 (zero) through to 36. The numbers are coloured red and black and the 0 (zero) is green. Colour and number combinations make for lots of ways to bet such as on individual numbers or groups of numbers.

To play:

- You will be given different coloured chips to play with. They make it easier for both the Players and the Dealer to see whose chips are whose.

- Place your chips on a number of combination of numbers.

- You can continue to place your bets whilst the dealer spins the ball. The dealer will let you know when to stop betting by saying 'no more bets'.

- When the ball lands in the winning number, the dealer will clear the table leaving only the winning bets remaining, which are then paid out accordingly.

You can place bets in the following positions:

  • Even Chances - Red, Black, Odds, Evens, High, Low – pays 1 - 1
  • Dozens - 1 to 12, 13 to 24, 25 to 36 - pays 2 - 1
  • Columns - 1st, 2nd, 3rd - pays 2 – 1
  • Single Numbers (called straight ups) - 1,2,3,4 etc. - pays 35 - 1
  • Splits - A chip placed between adjacent numbers- pays 17 - 1
  • A Street - A strip of three numbers - pays 11- 1
  • Corners - The corner of four numbers - pays 8 - 1
  • Six-Lines - Strips of six numbers - pays 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 rules for American Roulette at this casino, set out below, are our commitment to the Players in ensuring that the gambling we offer is ‘Fair and Open’. In the event of a dispute resulting from any ambiguity in the rules, the decision shall always be in the Player’s favour until that ambiguity has been resolved.

  • The Player plays against the House.
  • The game of Roulette is played with a wheel, which has been divided into 37 equal compartments, 0-36 inclusive, and one ball.
  • The wheel is spun in one direction by the Dealer and the ball is always spun in the opposite direction.
  • The Players can place their bets on the layout either before the ball is spun or during the time that the ball is spinning but may not place, change or alter any bets after the Dealer has announced ‘No more bets’.
  • All wagers placed are only valid for one spin.
  • Players may place their wagers on the following options on the layout as shown below.
  • When the ball has settled in a number, that number is deemed to be the winning number and the Players are paid out at the appropriate odds as shown by the table to the right by the Dealer.
  • When the winning number is zero; half of each wager on any even chance bet (those wagers if won being paid at odds of 1 to 1), shall be lost and surrendered to the House and the remaining half returned to the Player.
  • Any bets not associated with the winning number are lost and surrendered to the House.
  • Should a ‘No spin’ occur, then the wagers on the layout are void and will be valid for the next spin.
