How to Play Roulette in Las Vegas

Roulette in Las Vegas

Roulette is a spinning wheel that contains slots numbered 1 to 36, as well as two additional slots, 0 an 00.  A white ball is spun around the wheel as the wheel rotates, and when the ball loses speed, it drops, falling into one of the numbered slots. 

In Las Vegas, roulette slots are numbered from 1 to 36 alternating between red and black. There are also two green slots numbered 0 and 00. Some casinos also offer the European style roulette, which has a single 0 along with the standard 36 numbers.

The purpose of Las Vegas casino roulette game is to try and guess which numbered slot the ball will fall into next.  You place your bets on the roulette layout according to where you think the ball might land. There is a house advantage of 5.26% if the ball lands in the 0 or 00 pocket. If that happens, all the other wagers will automatically lose.

Roulette Betting Options

Players can place a variety of 'inside' bets by selecting the number of the pocket the ball will land in, or a range of pockets based on their position. Players can also place 'outside' bets which are bets on various positional groupings of pockets, pocket colors, or whether it is odd or even. The payout odds for each type of bet is based on its probability. Las Vegas casino tables usually imposes minimum and maximum bets, and these rules usually apply separately for all of a player's "inside" and "outside" bets for each spin. You should ask the Dealer about any minimum and maximum betting limits at your table. Players can continue to place bets until the dealer announces "No more bets."

** The value of your chip is determined by the price you pay for them.
