It is suitable for everyone, including those who have never played at the gaming table. You can play by using some very simple bets. The game is fun, exciting and ideal also for groups of friends who wish to have fun together (experienced players of course continuously perfect their strategies).
Besides, the croupier can place bets instead of you (it is enough that you know the names)!
How to get going?
Hand in a banknote, cash chip or token to the croupier, and they will give you colour chips instead (each player has his own colour). Colour chips do not have a set value, so let the croupier know what value you want to give them - e.g. with € 50 you can buy 10 chips worth € 5 each, or 25 chips with worth € 2 each, etc. When you leave the game ask the croupier to change your colour chips back into cash ones, which can then be traded in at the cashier’s.
You should not do this:
Do not move colour chips from one table to another. And ... let the croupier make all the payments before you take your chips off the table.
Where should you place your bets?
This depends on how much you want to earn, as the lesser the chances of a hit, the higher the winnings. You can choose among outside, inside and special bets. Outside and inside bets represent different number distributions on the table, whereas special bets represent distributions on the roulette wheel. Our advice is to choose outside and inside bets to warm up.
Outside and inside bets
Only one or two possible distributions are represented for each bet.
A, B: Red or Black - Will the ball land on a number in red or a number in black? Pays even money.
C, D: Even or Odd - Will the ball rest on an even or odd number? Pays even money.
E, F: 1 to 18 or 19 to 36 - Will the ball land on a number from 1 to 18 or from 19 to 36? Pays even money.
G, H, I: 1st 12, 2nd 12 or 3rd 12 - Will the ball rest on a number from 1 to 12 or one from 13 to 24 or one from 25 to 36? Pays 2 to 1.
J: 1st, 2nd or 3rd Column - Will the ball land on a number within the column you have selected? Pays 2 to 1. By the way: If the ball stops on zero and you have place an outside bet, you lose your bet.
K: Six lines - The ball will stop on one of six adjacent numbers. Pays 5 to 1.
L: Corner - The ball will stop on one of four adjacent numbers. Pays 8 to 1.
M: Street - The ball will stop on any of three numbers in a transversal row. Pays 11 to 1.
N: Split - The ball will stop on one of two adjacent numbers. Pays 17 to 1.
O: Straight up - Feeling lucky? Guess the number on which the ball will stop correctly. Pays 35 to 1.
If you find the bets too complicated, the croupier will place the bets instead of you.
