Live American Roulette Rules
The game follows the standard American Roulette rules. It focuses on a spinning wheel that has been divided in to 38 segments, the numbers 0 to 36 inclusive and a special 00 segment. A ball is released into the wheel and you need to bet on which of the segments it will come to rest on.
The game allows you to bet on far more than just individual numbers. The segments on the wheel have been coloured red or black, except for 0 and 00, which are green. Furthermore, the numbers do not run sequentially around the wheel. Added to this is the layout of the betting area, which creates more betting possibilities. It allows you to bet on groups of numbers, such as those formed by the layout of the wheel/betting area, and those that share characteristics, such as all the odds or evens.
This means that there many different types of bet:
- Straight Up: A bet on a specific number.
- Split Bet: A bet on two adjacent numbers on the betting area.
- Street Bet: A bet on three numbers in a vertical line (a street) on the betting area.
- Square Bet: A bet on four numbers that form a square on the betting area.
- Basket Bet: A bet on the numbers 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3.
- Line Bet: A bet on six numbers, two streets that are next to each another in the betting area.
- Column Bet: A bet on the twelve numbers that make up a horizontal line in the betting area.
- Dozen Bet: A bet on the first, second or third group of 12 numbers (1-12, 13-24 and 25-36).
- Red/Black Bet: A bet on the ball either a red or a black number.
- Even/Odd Bet: A bet on all the even or all the odd numbers.
- Low/High Bet: A bet on whether the ball will land on a low or high number (1 – 18 or 19 – 36).
There are also special shortcuts to place Final, Complete Bets and Half Complete bets:
- Final Bet: This is a bet on all the numbers that share the same last number. For example, a final bet on the number 2 would place chips on 2, 12, 22 and 32.
- Complete Bet: This covers all the betting positions associated with a certain number. The bet consists of a Straight Bet, Split Bet, Corner Bet, Street Bet and Line Bet.
- Half-Complete Bet: This covers the same betting positions as the Complete bet, but without the Street and Line Bets.
How a Round Works
Simply place your chips on the relevant sections of the betting area in the allocated time. Once the time has expired, the croupier will release the ball into the wheel. You can watch as it gradually comes to a stop and you will then be paid out for any winning bets.
The game offers the standard roulette payouts. The smallest payout is 1:1 for bets that cover large groups of numbers such as the Reds, Blacks, Odds and Evens bets. Column and Dozen bets both payout 2:1, Line Number bets payout at 5:1, Basket bets payout at 6:1, Square bets payout at 8:1, Street bets payout at 11:1, Split bets payout at 17:1 and Straight Up bets offer the top payout of 35:1.
This will place chips on a number of random Straight Up betting positions so that you don’t have to decide which numbers to bet on.
You can use this to create custom bets. You can use the regular betting area and the other shortcuts to create bets and then save them. In future, you can then place the bet very quickly rather than having to reposition individual chips.
