How to Play American Roulette
In order to play American Roulette, the player must try to predict which number slot the ball will end up in on the roulette wheel.
American Roulette Rules
The numbers 1 through 36, 0, and 00 are marked on the roulette wheel. The numbers are alternately colored red and black. The “0” and the “00” are green.
The roulette table layout is divided into 2 sections – group bets and individual numbers. “Inside bets” are those placed on individual, adjacent, or small groups of numbers. “Outside bets” are bets that cover groups of 12 or 18 numbers (e.g. red, odd, etc.).
