Lesson 4
Roulette: 1
The Table
Basics
Roulette has been
played since the 17th century. Your simple
objective as a player is to predict the ball's
final restingplace when the wheel stops spinning.
The roulette wheel at Gold Antigua Casino
consists of 36 numbers plus zero and double zero.
Your wager on the roulette table can be placed on
a single number, or be used to cover 2, 3, 4, 5,
6, 12, or up to 18 different numbers during one
spin. Here is a summary of the different roulette
bets:
Straight Up
This is a wager on
a single number, including zero (0) and double
zero (00). If the ball stops at your number, your
bet pays 35 to 1.
Split Bet
This is a wager on
two adjacent numbers in the roulette table, which
is placed on the line dividing the two numbers.
If the ball stops at either number, your bet pays
17 to 1.
Street Bet
Street bets cover
three numbers. The chip is placed on the outer
right boundary line of the roulette table, next
to the corresponding row of three numbers. If
either number hits, the street bet pays 11 to 1.
Corner Bet
Corner bets cover
four numbers. The chip is placed on the cross
where the four numbers intersect. If any of the
four numbers hit, your corner bet pays 8 to 1.
Five Bet
This bet covers
the following numbers: 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3. The
chip is placed on the outer right boundary line
of the roulette table, between 00 and 3. If
either number hits, your five bets pays 6 to 1.
Line Bet
A line bet covers
the six different numbers in two rows of three
numbers. For example: 4,5,6 plus 7,8,9). The chip
is placed on outer right boundary line of the
roulette table, where the line dividing the two
rows intersects it. If any of the six numbers
hit, your line bet pays 5 to 1.
Column Bet
On the short side
of the roulette table are three boxes marked
"2 to 1." By placing your chip in one
of these boxes, you mark all twelve numbers above
it (0 and 00 excluded). If the ball stops at
either of these numbers, your bet pays 2 to 1.
Dozen Bet
You can bet on a
group of twelve numbers by placing your chip in
one of the three boxes marked "1st 12,"
"2nd 12," or "3rd 12." A
winning dozen bet pays 2 to 1.
Red/Black, Even/Odd,
and Low/High Bets
A bet placed in
one of the boxes on the left, long side of the
table covers half of the roulette numbers (excluding
zero and double zero). Each box covers 18 numbers.
These bets pay even money, 1 to 1.
Good Luck!
