How to Play

Roulette consists of a spinable wheel with 37 (european) numbered pockets (38 american roulette) that are alternating red and black (1 starts off red). Then there is the ball which is spun in the opposite direction of the spinning wheel and will eventually fall into one of the pockets. The final component to the game is a numbered table which corresponds with the wheel.

The game odds vary for example you can put your money down on a single number and if the ball lands on it you winning payout will be 35 to 1. Another way to play is by picking red or black, chances of winning are much better although payouts in the this case are poorer at 1 to 1.

In American roulette there are two 0’s (0 and 00) if the ball lands on either one you lose. In this game your chance of losing this way is 5.2 %

In European roulette there is only one 0 so your odds of losing when the ball hits 0 is 2.7%.
