Roulette

Roulette is one of the simplest games to understand and play requiring no special skills.
There are in principle 3 different forms of the game:
• European Roulette
• American Roulette
• French Roulette
This explanation will focus on European Roulette which is the most popular and at the end will point out the differences between that and the other two games.


Play Roulette at All Irish Casino

All Irish Casino

There are three pieces of equipment in the game; the Roulette Wheel, the Table and the Ball.
The Roulette Wheel has 37 slots into which the Ball may fall. The slots are numbered from 0 to 36, are randomly positioned around the wheel and are coloured either black or red. Please note that the Zero (0) is usually green but is never black or red. The significance of this will become clear at the end of the “How to Play” section.
The Croupier will spin the wheel gently in one direction usually alternating between clockwise and anticlockwise and will then set the ball rolling around the wheel edge in the opposite direction. In Online casinos this happens when the bets are placed. As the ball slows down it will eventually come to rest in one of the numbered slots.
The simple object of the game is to predict into which slot the ball will fall.
The Table is the place where bets are placed to forecast where the Ball will end.

How to play Roulette

Each Casino has its own graphics and methods of placing bets so we recommend that you read the instructions for the particular casino in which you wish to play. The basic principles however remain the same. Most Casinos have a “Free Play” option that will enable you to practise placing bets.
First select the stake that you wish your chips to represent, then place your chip or chips on the table to forecast the number of the slot on the wheel into which you think the ball will fall. If you are right you win; it’s as simple as that.
There are many ways in which to place bets and we shall run through the main ones here. You can place as many different bets as you wish on a single spin of the wheel.

IMPORTANT TIPS

Watch out for the number 0 (zero). You can bet on zero but only in a straight up bet or a split bet. Zero is neither odd nor even and it is green, not black or red.
In American Roulette there is a 37th number which is 00 (Double zero). This reduces your odds of winning.
French Roulette is the same as European Roulette except that the table layout is different.

Other Bets

The Bets described above are the most usual bets placed and indeed in some on line casinos are the only bets available. As a point of note only you may come across casinos that offer an alternative layout which enables other groups of bets to be placed. For example it may be possible to bet on 0 and the two numbers either side of 0 as they appear on the Roulette wheel (3,26,32,15).
