Roulette is a table game that is played in both real and virtual casinos.

The game itself is played by each player placing single or multiple bets on the numbers on the table. There are 36 numbers on the roulette wheel and they are colored alternately red and black.

There are two types or roulette wheel available to the player. The first has a single white 0, and the second has a single white 0 and a double white 0 (00). With the addition of one or two 0’s, it offers the player a choice of 37 or 38 options on which to bet. The choice of which wheel is used at a specific casino is at the discretion of the casino management. Some casinos offer both styles of tables. 00 tables are normally offered only by American casinos. The house edge is 2.7% for single 0 tables and 5.26% for 00 tables.


The game is presided over by a croupier who can also be known as the “Banker” or the “Trader”. He or she handles all bets and payouts (winnings). Each individual player plays against the house not against each other. The players are betting on the outcome of the spin of the wheel and where the ball (jack) will finally come to rest and the color of the number it lands on. All even numbers are colored red and odd numbers black.

Game Play – Winning and Losing

The game commences once all bets have been placed. A roulette table normally permits between 6 and 8 players at any one time. All players will have different color coded chips to allow the croupier to identify which chips are placed by which player. This prevents disputes arising from players claiming a win by saying that they placed the bet when in fact it was placed by another player. When the jack finally comes to rest, the croupier will announce the number and color of the winning number. He or she will then settle all winning bets and collect all losing bets.

Odd or even bet
