In a live American Roulette session, players can make bets up to a minute before the croupier (dealer) places the ball into the center of the revolving wheel, thereby causing it to spun rapidly. Each then has their color, which will represent any denomination that’s appropriate: a low stakes player may use their chips at a dollar a card, while a high stakes player may use a dollar a quarter and up. Roulette wheels are circular, and spin very rapidly. When a player bets, they place a -0 on one or more of their choices. If the number on the bet when the wheel is spinning comes off by the time the player hits the button, they’ve lost that particular hand. The good new is, if you don’t hit the button, the wheel will continue its spin around and you’ll get another chance.
So the next question is, how do you “payouts” in this casino game? American Roulette pays out in exact rounds. In each round, a player can either win money, or lose money. There are certain betting rounds, however, such as the “triple bonus,” “weekend win,” and “weekend lose,” where the odds are better for winning money than for losing it. In these types of bets, you’ll notice that there are more winners than losers, giving the feeling that people are actually betting money on the cards, not just counting cards.
American Roulette is similar to other table games in that it has a house edge, meaning that you’ll have to pay more money to bet on it than someone at a casino would have to pay, because of the inherent risk of holding a gambling position in a potentially volatile environment. But the difference with Roulette is that when you walk away, you’ll still have won, because you didn’t lose anything. Now that may seem like an unfair equation, but as the old saying goes, if you’re going to play, you might as well play where you can win. That’s what most slot machines in casinos are all about: winning the pot so that you can walk away with your prize, regardless of whether or not you actually walked away with your prize.
