How to play roulette
Legend has that Roulette was born in France, somewhere in the 17th century. In a bid to build the classic motion machine, a French Physicist failed with his invention, and what he got instead was a Roulette – meaning ‘the small wheel’ in French.
Over the years, this game has evolved with new features being introduced. Today, players can enjoy an online version of this classic game here at Mr Green Online Casino. The simplicity of the game and the varied betting options are unmatched.
Besides French, American and European versions, Roulette has been designed with all players in mind. Novice players can enjoy the simpler version of the game while the more advanced players can advance their gameplay by choosing to play for real money.
Playing online Roulette is pretty straightforward. A roulette consists of a table where you’ll place your bet, a spinning wheel and a ball that lands on a given position on the table. The ball decides if you’ll win the bet or not.
There are two main ways of betting on a roulette game: an inside and outside bet. Inside bets offer higher payouts but are hard to land on. Outside bets, on the other hand, are easier to land on, but with lower payouts. Inside bets include bets on single or a small group of numbers while outside bets include bets on a large group of numbers: for example, you bet on odd or even numbers, 1-18, 19-36 and colours – red or black. These are the so-called even chance bets.
Choose the colour of the final number and place a bet—will it be red or black? But, if the ball lands on green, the bet loses. Pays 1 to 1.
Even or odd bet
Place a bet on whether the final number is ODD or EVEN. Pays 1 to 1.
By placing your bet in a 2:1 space, you are betting that the ball will land on one of the numbers in that long column. Pays 2 to 1.
Below the black and red columns you can place your bet on groupings of twelve numbers. Choose from the 1st 12 numbers, the 2nd 12 numbers or the 3rd 12 numbers. This pays 2 to 1.
High or low bet
Place bets on whether the number will be in the top half of the board (1 – 18), or in the lower half of the board (19 – 36). Pays 1 to 1.
Inside bets are wagers you can make on specific numbers or selection of numbers that have higher paying odds. Here are example of inside bets:
Straight up bet
Betting on a single number gives the biggest payout of all. Pays 31 to 1.
Place a chip on the line between two numbers to split a bet between two numbers. Pays 17 to 1.
Place a chip on the end of any “street” or row of three numbers to bet on all three numbers in that row. Pays 11 to 1.
Place a chip on the intersection of four numbers to split a bet between all four. Pays 8 to 1.
Bet on six numbers by placing the chip on the edge of two adjoining streets. This is like a double street bet. Pays 5 to 1.
