# Roulette Rules

Playing roulette can be as easy or difficult as you want to make it. If you only play basic wagers, it is probably the simplest casino table game. However, if you start wagering on different combinations, it can become quite complicated.

The object of roulette is to guess on which number the ball is going to land and wager accordingly. After all wagers are placed, the wheel is spun and the number the ball lands on is the winning number.

### Layout

There are currently 2 roulette wheels being used, the European wheel and the American wheel. The European wheel has 0 and numbers 1 – 36, giving it a house edge of 2.63%. The American wheel has 0, 00 and numbers 1 – 36, giving it a house edge of 5.26%. So if you have a choice, always play on the European roulette wheel.

Below is a picture of the table layout. It consists of two parts, the inside area consisting of individual numbers and the outside area consisting of group wagers.

### Roulette rules

Inside bets
The inside bets are made on numbers or groups of numbers on the table. Below are the different wagers ranked by payout.

Straight bet
Bet on a single number. The payout is 35 to 1.

Split Bet

Bet on 4 numbers in a “box” by placing the chip where the lines for the 4 numbers cross so that it is touching the four corners of the numbers. The payout is 8 to 1.

Double street bet
Same as the street bet, but wagering on two connecting streets. Same placement as street bet, but the chip should straddle both streets (rows). Payout is 5 to 1.
