PREMISE TOP

The game of Roulette is played by spinning a small ball on a round wheel with thirty-seven numbered slots. When the wheel stops, the ball comes to rest in one of these slots. The object of Roulette is to correctly predict the slot in which the ball will land. By predicting the right number, you earn a payoff on your bet. The size of the payoff depends on how the bet was placed.

HOW TO PLAY TOP

Your chips are stacked by denomination ($1, $5, $25, $100, $500) at the bottom of the screen above your alias. Select the amount you would like to wager on a given hand by clicking the left mouse button on the chip of that denomination. The amount wagered per hand may be increased or decreased by placing the mouse on the stack that you wish to add or subtract from your bet. Each time you click the left mouse button you will add a chip from that pile to your planned wager amount. Likewise by clicking on the right mouse button you can decrease your planned wager amount. You may repeat your last bet by simply hitting the "0" button of your numeric keyboard. Other numeric keyboard shortcuts are summarized below.

To place a bet in Roulette, place your chips on the table as described above. Depending on where you choose to place your chips, you can "cover" (bet on) anywhere from one to eighteen numbers with a single bet.

You can spin the roulette wheel by pressing the "Spin" button in the bottom left corner of the screen or by clicking on the roulette wheel. The history of the previous winning numbers is displayed in a table beside the "Pass" button. There are three different colored numbers in the history table. The Yellow colored numbers mean that they belong to Black set of numbers. The Red colored numbers mean they belong to the Red set of numbers and the Green colored numbers id '0'. The "Pass" button may be used to spin the wheel without putting a bet on the table.

You can place several different kinds of bets on the Roulette table. Each type of bet covers a certain range of numbers, and each type has its own payoff rate. The short lines of three numbers each are called rows on the board, while the longer lines, each holding twelve, are called columns. The first six types of bets are all made on the numbered space or on the lines between them and are called inside bets, while the last three types are made on the special boxes below and to the right of the board and are called outside bets. These bets are tabulated below:

Bet Type Explanation
Straight Up Place your chips directly on any single number (including zero).
Split Bet Place your chips on the line between any two numbers.
Street Bet Place your chips at the end of any row of numbers. A street bet covers three numbers.
Corner Bet Place your chips at the corner where four numbers meet. All four numbers are covered.
Line Bet Place your chips at the end of two rows at the intersection between them. A line bet covers all the numbers in either row, for a total of six.
Column Bet Placing a chip in one of the blank boxes at the end of the columns covers all the numbers in that column, a total of twelve. (The zero is not covered by any of the columns).
Dozen Bet Placing a chip in one of the three boxes marked 12P (1st 12), 12M (2nd 12) or 12D (3rd 12) covers those twelve numbers.
