Roulette is an exciting game of chance based on the spin of the wheel where large payouts are possible on small wagers. The aim is to place your chips on a number, combination of numbers or colour that comes up on the wheel.

Basic Play:

At the roulette table, the dealer will exchange your money or cash chips for colour chips. These are your chips and no one else can play with them. Maximum and minimum stakes are displayed at every table. When you decide to leave the table, the  dealer will change your colour chips back into cash chips.

Online Play:

Due to the layout of the table and the pattern of numbers on the wheel there is a huge variety of bets that you can place on Roulette.
