European Roulette

Objective

In European Roulette, the player tries to predict which number slot on the Roulette wheel the ball will land on.

Rules

The roulette wheel is marked with numbers 1 through 36, with an additional “0?. The numbers are alternately coloured red and black, and the “0? is green.

The roulette layout is divided into different sections – individual numbers and group bets. Bets made on individual or adjacent numbers or small groups of numbers are referred to as ‘inside bets’ whilst the bets covering groups of 12 or 18 numbers (e.g. red, odd, etc.) are known as ‘outside bets’.
