How to play Roulette

OBJECTIVE

The goal of Roulette is to guess where the ball will land on the roulette wheel and/or which colored space the ball will land on.

ROULETTE PRO TIP:¬†When the croupier is paying out, they’re doing a lot of mental math. Be patient and respectful to them and your fellow players!

BETTING

The player examines the roulette table and places their bets on which space they think the ball will land. Inside bets have lower odds but pay out more. Outside bets have better odds but pay out less. Players place their bets before the beginning of each round and before the croupier signals ‘no more bets’.
