You need to purchase chips to join the excitement of Roulette simply place cash on the table for the dealer to exchange and you will be issued with coloured chips, which help to distinguish your bets from other players. Ccoloured chips purchased on a Roulette table are only valid on that particular table.
What is the objective of the game?
The aim of the game is to guess where the ball win land on the Roulette wheel. The Roulette wheel contains compartments numbered from 0 to 36 (or 00 to 36). The dealer spins the wheel and whichever compartment the ball falls in wins!
How do I play?
The dealer will invite you to 'place your bets'. Simply position your chips where you choose on the table before the dealer calls 'no more bets'. When the ball comes to rest, the dealer will announce the winning number and place a marker on it. They will then remove all of the losing chips and pay the winning ones.
