There is a minimum table limit of 1 and your combined bets cannot exceed 100 per round.
How to Play
The betting area of the American Roulette table has individual squares for each number that are coloured red or black. You can place your chips on one or more of these numbers, keeping in mind the maximum table limit. If you move the pointer over the lines between the numbers, you will see that more than one number becomes highlighted. This helps you to see where to place your chips if you want to bet on 2, 3, 4 or 6 numbers that are located next to each other. These bets have higher payout odds that range from 35 to 1 for one number and 5 to 1 for a group of 6 numbers. American Roulette also has a unique bet that can be made on the "first five" this is a bet on the numbers 0, 00, 1, 2 & 3 and you need to place you chip at the corner where the lines of 00 and 3 meet.
Additional bets can be placed in the other betting areas, if you place your chips at the end of one column where it says 2 to 1, you are betting on all the numbers in that row and the payouts will be 2 to 1. This payout also applies to the bets placed on the 1st 12 (numbers), 2nd 12 and 3rd 12. Bets placed on 1 to 18, 19 to 36, odd or even, red or black have a payout of 1 to 1.
When you have finished placing your bets, press spin and the dealer will say "no more bets" and the ball will start spinning around the roulette wheel. When the ball has landed on a number the dealer will announce the number and you can see a closeup of the roulette wheel in the right hand corner of the screen where you can also see the previous numbers that have won. A marker will be placed on the number in the betting area and any winnings will be added to your balance.
If you want to play again with the same bets, then press the repeat button, you can also add additional bets. However, if you want to bet on different numbers then press clear to remove your previous bets from the table, place your new bets and press spin.
