How to play the games

Roulette

This game is of French origin and was first played in New Orleans.  The United States adopted their own version, but the French version is still played time to time in Las Vegas.  The only difference is that the American version has a single zero and a double zero versus the French version with just a single zero.  It changes the odds and payoffs accordingly.  You usually find most tables in Las Vegas with a minimum bet of $1 - $3. 

The table itself has room for 6 to 7 players to sit.  Each of you have different colored chips to play on the layout.  These chips can only be used at this table. The layout of the table consists of the roulette wheel itself, and a long felt area.  The ball is traditionally made of ivory and is spun by the dealer opposite the spin of the wheel.  The rest of the table contains the numbers 1-36 and the single and double zero, and the combinations available to bet.  Betting on a single number pays 35 to 1.  You may also bet on a number of combinations within the numbers.  Your chips may overlap onto multiple combinations outlined below.  These bets are on the "inside".  Betting on the outside involves the following bets. There are squares for betting red or black, odd or even, and 1-18 and 19-36.  These bets are even chances and they pay even money.  In addition, there are spots for also betting on the combinations 1-12, 13-24, and 25-36.  The payoff is 2 to 1 on these.

When you finish beating the house at roulette, you will have to ask the dealer to "color out" color out for you.  The dealer will then take your chips and give you casino checks which you may then use on other games or cash out at the cashier.
