The Basics of Roulette
by Geoff Dempsey

Roulette is a great game for beginners: it is exciting and easy to learn! The roulette wheel contains 36 compartments alternating between red and black, numbered from 1 to 36. It also has a "0" and "00" in green. The dealer spins a small white ball in the opposite direction of the turning wheel. When the ball begins to fall into the wheel, the dealer will signal no more bets. When the ball finally comes to a rest in one of the compartments, the dealer will point out the winning number and settle all bets accordingly.

Some of the possible bets and odds are listed below:

Straight Bets A bet on a single number
Split Bets A bet on two adjacent numbers
Street Bets A bet on any 3 numbers on a horizontal line
Square Bets A bet on a block of 4 numbers
Line Bets A bet on six numbers, comprising two adjacent rows
Column Bets A bet on one of 3 vertical columns
Dozen Bets A bet on 12 numbers, being high, middle or low.
Even Bets Any bet on even/odd, red/black, low/high

Have fun!
