Live Roulette Rules31st Jan 2017 |
To understand the rules of Roulette we must first look at the board and wheel. There are thirty-six numbers on the wheel plus one zero, making a total of thirty-seven possible outcomes. The term “outcomes” is very important for Roulette because the game is built upon chance and likelihood. The more likely the outcome, the lower the payout. The less likely a selection is to hit means that the payout if it does hit will be considerable.
To bet on one or more of the outside bets a chip must be placed on one of the designated betting areas on the board. The areas for outside bets cover large groups of numbers, which makes them easier to get hits on. Outside bets generally cover either half or a third of the possible outcomes. You can bet on even or odd numbers, which is similar to placing a bet on a coin toss, reds or blacks, and highs and lows. When the board is divided in half, the payout for a won bet is one to one. You can also bet on sets of twelve numbers. There are three ‘dozens’ bets, which cover the first, second, and third sets of twelve numbers, and you can bet on complete columns that also add up to twelve.
Inside bets are the most exciting bets in the game, but they are also the hardest to win. The odds of winning inside bets are much lower than those of outside bets, but the payouts are much higher. To place an inside bet, you need to put your chips on a single number or small groups of numbers. Placing your chips directly on a number will select only that one, but placing the chip on a corner, line, or intersection between numbers selects every number that the chip touches.
Learning the rules to Roulette is very easy. So long as your bet is placed before the spin, your game will play without problems. Just remember that the higher the odds of winning for a particular bet, the lower the payout will be.
