The Layout

The rules of roulette are that you bet on a number, numbers, colors or columns that the spun ball will settle on as it runs out of momentum. The layout of roulette table constitutes the main difference between the versions of roulette played today. There are mainly two versions of roulette, the European and the American. The European is much similar to the original French roulette and features a table with one zero pocket while the American comes with two zero pockets. The European roulette gives the house an edge of 2.63% while the American roulette gives the house a higher edge of 5.26%. These differences arise from the fact that roulette is a game of probability and the more the slots the less likely it is to make a correct guess while the fewer the slots the higher the likelihood of making a correct guess.

Buying In

When you want to join a roulette table, there are special chips you have to purchase and they are of different colors to help differentiate them and eliminate disputes. Each table has its own chips and they must be cashed in on the table when you decide to quit playing. At that point you will be given regular casino cards to take to the cage. The cage does not permit you to cash in any table chips.

Roulette tables have their specified minimum and maximum bets permitted. A player must use a consistent betting style in any one spin and not two to meet the minimum bet. For instance you can chose to go with inside numbers and in such circumstances you will not be allowed to bet on colors unless you meet the minimum requirements for both. You can bet $5 on inside numbers and $5 on colors if the $5 is the minimum but can not bet $2 one way and $3 the other to meet the requirement.

Playing Tips

Roulette is purely a game of chance or probability and there is no specific tip that gives you any edge over the house. However certain decisions make you better off than others. The first tip is to choose the easier roulette which limits the house edge. Choose the European roulette with one zero pocket.

Make bets that are more likely to occur even if they pay lower ratios instead of making bets that promise higher payout ratios but are least likely to occur.
