Basic ideas on How to Play Roulette

The first basic idea on how to play roulette is to understand that there are up to eight players who play against the House. The House is usually represented by the croupier (also called the dealer) who spins the roulette wheel and handles the wagers and payouts.

Each player purchases different colored chips so that their bets don’t get mixed up. At the end of play, if you won, you exchange back the colored chips with cash chips. These are special chips with the value amount imprinted on them. There are several denominations in various colors. You then take these chips to the cash desk where they will give you actual cash money in exchange.

In order to play roulette, you place your bets on numbers (any number including the zero) in the table layout or on the outside, and when everybody at the table had a chance to place their bets, the croupier starts the spin and launches the ball. Just before the ball is about to drop over the slots, the croupier says ‘no more bets’. From that moment no one is allowed to place their bets until the ball falls on a slot. Only after the croupier places the dolly on the winning number on the roulette table and clears all the losing bets you can then start placing your new bets while the croupier pays the winners. The winners are those bets that are on or around the number that comes up. Also the bets on the outside of the layout win if the winning number is represented.

The House advantage

On a single zero roulette table the House advantage is 2.7%. On a double zero roulette table it is 5.26%. Therefore, the House advantage is gained by paying the winners a chip or two (or a proportion of it) less than what it should have been if there was no advantage. This of course is just the basics of how to play roulette. Subsequently, you would learn more advanced methods of playing roulette.
