**How to Play Roulette (multi-player)**
Betting:
Your chips are stacked
by denomination ($1, $5, $25, $100, $500) at the
bottom of the screen above the game menu. Select
the amount you would like to wager on a given hand
by clicking the left mouse button on the chip of
that denomination. This activates that specific
chip denomination. Next, place your bet on the
Roulette table by clicking on a bet field. To
specify a bet that does not equal to an existing
chip denomination, simply click on another chip
denomination after placing your previous chip on
the table. For example, to bet $30, click on the
$25 chip and place it on the table then click on
the $5 chip and place it on top of the $25 chip.
You may repeat your last bet by simply hitting the
"0" button of your numeric keyboard. Other
keyboard shortcuts are summarized below.
Depending on where you choose to place
your chips, you can "cover" (bet on) anywhere from
one to eighteen numbers with a single bet. If you
place a wager that is lower than the minimum table
bet limit, your bet amount will be automatically
adjusted to the minimum bet amount.
You
can Spin the roulette wheel by clicking on the
"SPIN" button in the bottom left corner of the
screen or by clicking on the roulette wheel
itself. The history of the previous winning
numbers is displayed in the table above the
"Game Menu". There are three different colored numbers
in the history table. The yellow colored numbers
mean that they belong to the black set of numbers.
The red colored numbers mean they belong to the
red set of numbers and the green colored numbers
are either '0' or '00'.
You can place nine
different kinds of bets on the Roulette table.
Each type of bet covers a certain range of
numbers, and each type has its own payoff rate.
The short lines of three numbers each are called
rows on the board, while the longer lines, each
holding twelve, are called columns. The first six
types of bets are all made on the numbered space
or on the lines between them and are called inside
bets, while the last three types are made on the
special boxes below and to the right of the board
and are called outside bets. The different types
and payoffs for each bet type are summarized
below:
Bet
Type |
Explanation |
Straight Up |
Place your chips directly on any
single number (including zero and double-zero). |
Split Bet |
Place your chips on the line
between any two numbers. |
Street Bet |
Place your chips at the end of
any row of numbers. A street bet covers three
numbers. |
Corner Bet |
Place your chips at the corner
where four numbers meet. All four numbers are
covered. |
Five Bet |
This bet can be made in only one
place and covers five numbers: zero, double
zero, one, two and three. Place your chips at
the end of the row between the numbers 00 and
3. |
Line Bet |
Place your chips at the end of
two rows at the intersection between them. A
line bet covers all the numbers in either row,
for a total of six. |
Column Bet |
Placing a chip in one of the
boxes marked "2 to 1" at the end of the columns
covers all the numbers in that column, a total
of twelve. (Neither the zero nor the double zero
are covered by any of the columns). |
Dozen Bet |
Placing a chip in one of the
three boxes marked "1st 12," "2nd 12," or "3rd
12" covers those twelve numbers. |
Red/Black,
Even/Odd, 1 to 18/19
to 36 |
A chip placed in one of the six
boxes at the bottom of the board covers the half
of the board described in that box. (The zero
and double zero are not covered by any of these
boxes.) Each box covers eighteen numbers. | Once a spin is
complete, the winning number will be noted on the
table with a marker. Winning bets will have a
"W"
chip placed on top of them. Bets on red, black,
odd, even, 1 to 18, and 19 to 36 will have a "1/2"
chip placed on top of them if a zero or
double-zero is rolled to signify that half of the
bet is returned according to the zero and
double-zero rule.
Zero
or Double Zero rule:
When the ball
lands on "zero" or "double
zero", wagers on red, black, odd, even, 1 to 18, and 19 to 36 are not
entirely lost. Instead, each player having made
such a bet will lose only half of the original
amount bet. For example, if a player places a bet
of $10 on red and a double zero is rolled, the
player will lose $5 and be able to remove the
other $5 from the table. |
