American Roulette

In American Roulette the wheel is split into 38 slots and numbered from 1-36 and "0" and "00". While the 0 and 00 slots are colored green the other number slots are colored black or red. The wheel is made from good quality polished wheel and the wheel is balanced on a spindle.

Spinning of the wheel is done by the dealer in any one direction and throws an ivory colored ball on it in the other direction towards the rim of the wheel. The ball keeps circling the rim and gradually loses momentum and settles on any one slot. When the ball finally settles in a slot it is considered the end of that round. The bets can be placed in various ways.

Game Play

Bets can be made by players by placing chips on the lines or in the various boxes present on the Roulette table. When the first bet is laid the "spin" button is activated. The players can place multiple bets, modify their bets or move their chips from one position to other. "Re-bet" button means the same bets that were placed earlier are repeated.
