AFrench Roulette wheel consists of 37 numbered slots: numbers 1 to 36 and zero.The betting layout consists of every individual number as well as a host of “outside” bets, sometimes called “Even Chances”. As Vegas Nights players place their bets the dealer spins the wheel and a ball. The ball will continue to spin a few times around the wheel, during the spin the players may still place their bets. About midway through the spin the Vegas Nights dealer will announce “ Final Bets”, at this point players need to quickly finish off their betting. Shortly before the ball can drop into one of the numbered slots, the dealer will announce “ No More Bets” this means that no more bets will be accepted and all players must move their hands away from the layout. In the event that a bet is placed after the dealer has announced “No More Bets” then the dealer will remove that bet and will announce “No Bet”.
How to Bet ?
Betting on Roulette is easy. Betting can involve placing a single chip on a number to placing a lot of chips on that same number. Each player on Roulette receives a different colour in chips, in that way players betting on the same numbers are aware of their bets. A player can bet as follows :
This bet involves the placing of one chip or many chips directly onto any number on the layout including zero. Should the ball land in that number, the payout is 35:1
This bet involves the placing of one chip or many chips on the line separating any two numbers on the layout including zero. Should the ball land in any one of the two numbers that were split, the payout is 17:1
This bet involves the placing of one chip or many chips on the “Street”. A Street is a set of three numbers running down the layout paralell to each other starting at 3 and running all the way down to 36. In other words, numbers 123 is a street and 456 is another street and 789 is another street and so on. Should the ball land in any one of the three numbers of the Street that you bet on, the payout is 11:1
This bet involves the placing of one chip or many chips on the corner of any four numbers that meet. Should the ball land in any one of those four numbers, the payout is 8:1
This bet involves the placing of one chip or many chips on the intermediate line between two paralell streets which covers six numbers. Should the ball land in any one of those six numbers that you bet on, the payout is 5:1
Apart from the bets above, a player can also bet on Dozens and Columns. This is simply a set of 12 numbers that are in the first, second or third dozen or a set of 12 numbers that are in the first, second or third column. Should a player choose to bet on the dozens or columns, the payout is 2:1
There are also Even & Odd bets, Red & Black bets and bets on 1 -18 and bets on 19 -36, if any of these bets are played, the payout is even money.
Apart from all the bets listed above, there are also a series of “Combination Bets” as well as “ Call Bets” that can be played on Roulette, however the best way to familiarize yourself and learn these bets would be to ask the Dealer to explain what these bets are and how they are played when you’re at the Roulette Table.
