Rules To Play Roulette

Roulette rules are easy to remember. The French add a few interesting rules to the pot. 

Many Bets and Easy Rules are What Makes Roulette Great Rules for roulette are basically the same whether you play on land or online. In land-based casino roulette, players, usually up to eight, play against the house/croupier, who spins the roulette wheel and handles the bets and payouts. In online casino roulette, you can either play one-on-one against the computerized roulette wheel or you can play in a game that more closely simulates a real roulette game. 

In either case, a European/French roulette wheel has 37 slots (the 36 numbers and one zero) and an American wheel has two zeros, 36 numbers, and a total of 38 pockets. In a land-based casino, each player uses different colored chips so their bets don’t get mixed up; in Situs Judi Online roulette, this is less relevant. 

The rules of roulette are simple: you place your bet or bets on numbers (any number including the zero(es)) on the table layout (an inside bet) or on the outside (an outside bet), and when everybody at the table had a chance to place their bets, the croupier starts the wheel a-spinning, throws in the ball and, a few moments before the ball is about to drop over the slots, he yells, “No more bets.” From that instant, the universal rule is that no one is allowed to place – or change – his bet. Only after the croupier places the marker on the winning number on the roulette table layout and clears all the losing bets can another round of betting. 

It Makes Sense That the French Have Spiced Up “Their” Game There are all kinds of bets in roulette and they can be reviewed on the page dealing with Roulette Bets. But there are also specialized rules that apply only to certain games and that can be found on certain online gambling sites. An example of one of these rules is the “En Prison” rule. This rule applies to even-money bets only. When the outcome is zero, some casinos will allow the player to either take back half his bet or leave the bet “imprisoned” for another roulette spin. In the second case, if the outcome of the next spin is again zero, then the whole bet is lost. 

There is another rule similar to the “En Prison” rule called the “La Partage” rule. This rule also applies to even money bets and is also activated when the ball lands on zero, only in this case the player loses half the bet and does not have the option of leaving the bet in prison (locked up) for another spin. An even-money bet is red/black, high/low, odd/even. It should be noted that both the “La Partage” and the “En Prison” roulette rules cut the casino edge on the even-money bets in half. So a bet on Even on a single-zero roulette table with the “la partage” or “En Prison” rule has a 1.35% house edge and one on a 00 roulette table has a house edge of 2.63%.
