How to Play Roulette

Roulette is a casino game named after the French word meaning little wheel

You have a choice of ten bets, and you’re able to place inside bets – straight bets, split bets, street bets, double street bets or corner bets. You can also choose from outside bets – red or black bets, odd or even bets, high or low bets, dozen bets or column bets. To place a bet you will need to click on one of the bet areas on the roulette table in front of you. 

Increasing your bet involves clicking on the stack of chips already on the table, and your bet will increase by the amount in your stack. Once you have placed your bet, you click on the ‘Spin’ button. The roulette wheel will spin and will come to rest on a particular number. You will be paid out according to the payout table for the online casino.
