Basic Rules and Betting limits
In Roulette, the wheel contains 37 pockets, numbered zero to 36. You can make any combination of bets, on both individual numbers and groups of numbers, and all these bets are placed on the part of the table known as the ‘inside section’.
On the ‘outside section’, you can place wagers on a variety of matching pairs of bets, each of which covers 18 numbers. From high or low numbers, odd or even, and red or black, there are a number of options available.
On various parts of a Roulette table, you can also choose from six different 12-number bets, or ‘column’ and ‘dozen bets’, as well as different 17-number bets.
How to play Roulette
When prompted, you will be able to place all your chosen bets for the next round of Roulette. After you have placed your bets, the Roulette table will display up to 10 of the highest possible payouts that can be awarded, based on the numbers you have chosen.
During play, the results column will also show a history of the most recent winning numbers, while ‘Hot’ and ‘Cold’ numbers (those drawn frequently and infrequently, respectively) will be noted, as well as a red/black and odd/even result ratio.
The above results cannot be used to predict future results, but provide information of past games which may or may not affect your choices.

For centuries Roulette has offered casino players the glamour and excitement that Las Vegas offers today with a simple spin of the wheel. A relatively simple game to understand, it features in all online casino or land-based casinos, and here is the PokerStars guide to Roulette.
Roulette in French means ‘little wheel’ and before you get started it’s important to understand the anatomy of the Roulette wheel and table. The wheel has 37 numbers, 0-36. In American Roulette there are 38 numbers, 0-36 and then a 00 slot as well.
Before the ball hits the wheel, you must make a bet on the table. There are numerous bets you can make in Roulette and all bets placed are final once the ball hits the wheel.
On the table you will find each individual number and then a host of other bets you can place including:
Once the wheel stops and the ball lands on a number pocket, the croupier will pay out the players on the table who chose the correct number at the correct odds. After this, another round will begin and the game continues the same each round.
Types of Bets
In Roulette there are numerous bets you can make. You’re not restricted to making one kind of bet as in many other table games.
Straight Up – A single bet on any number on the Roulette table.
Split – Bet on two numbers simultaneously. Place your chip in-between two numbers and if the ball lands on either number, you win at odds of 17:1.
Street – A street bet is when you bet on three numbers simultaneously that all appear in a row on the grid of numbers on the Roulette table. Winning Street bets pay out 11:1.
Corner – Also known as a Square or Box of Four bet, this is a bet placed on a block of four numbers on the grid. You must place your chip at the meeting point of all four numbers for the bet to be valid. Winning bets pay out at 8:1.
Six Line – in a nutshell this is two Street bets combined. A Six Line bet is a bet on two adjoined streets. Bets can be made by placing your chips at the intersection of two streets and the odds are 5:1.
Five Number – Or a Basket Bet, can only be played in American Roulette. A bet that’s rarely made but involves a bet placed on both zero pockets (0, 00) and 1, 2 and 3. Your chip must be placed on the edge of the adjoining line between the zero pockets and the 1, 2 and 3.
Neighbour Bet – placing a bet on five numbers all next to each other on the wheel rather than on the table, e.g. 15, 34, 22, 5 and 17. This is better known as a 22 Neighbour Bet in American Roulette.
First 12 – a bet that covers the first dozen numbers on the Roulette table (1-12). This bet can be placed on the ‘1st 12’ section of the table.
Second 12 - a bet that covers the second 12 numbers on the Roulette table (13-24). This bet can be placed on the ‘2nd 12’ section of the table.
Third 12 - a bet that covers the third 12 numbers on the Roulette table (25-36). This bet can be placed on the ‘3rd 12’ section of the table.

19-36 - As it says, this is a bet placed on numbers 19 to 36 using the designated section on the Roulette table.

How To Play Casino Roulette
Playing gambling hall roulette has many similarities to gambling online. That being explained, casino roulette is also greatly different than playing online. The basic facts of the game are the same: use your chips to make a wager, watch the wheel and ball rattle and decide the winner. The odds are generally the same in both gambling halls and on the web and both places put forth winnings.
