Roulette is the all-time classic online casino game. In roulette, unlike in card games such as baccarat or blackjack, once the chips are placed, the player no longer has any control over the outcome of the coup. So, when you’re learning the roulette rules, there’s no strategy to remember.
In the roulette wheel or roulette cylinder, there are 37 or 38 numbered pockets (zero and double zero). The croupier spins this roulette wheel and throws a small ball from the edge into the cylinder. After a few spins, the ball comes to rest in one of the numbered pockets. The number above this pocket is the winning number. The bets are placed on a cloth on the layout. According to the usual roulette rules, the croupier then pays out the winnings.
A classic roulette table
Yes, there are minimum stakes in roulette. In most casinos the minimum bet is CHF 1.-. There are also some casinos that have no minimum bet at all. If you play online, you can find out what the minimum bet is on a particular day on your casino's website or app.
The rules of roulette are simple:
Each game (coup) is a self-contained game in itself. The aim is to guess which number the ball is going to land on and which winning combinations you might get as a result. It is important for players to know the respective table minimum and maximum before the round begins. Unlike the otherwise consistent roulette rules, these limits are defined in-house by the casinos themselves.
The croupier opens the game with the words ‘faites vos jeux’, after which the players can place their bets. The croupier then stops the game with the words: ‘rien ne va plus’, meaning ‘no more bets’. According to the roulette rules, chips that are placed on the layout too late must be taken back.
The croupier calls out the winning number (or ‘announces’ it), after which the losing chips are removed. The winning chips remaining on the layout are paid out. For payment information, please see: Roulette rules explained Types of bets and payout ratios.
The dealer places the ball in the roulette wheel
Roulette, like many other casino games, has a croupier who runs the game and oversees the action. With a few commands, he tells the player what to do or not to do next. This ensures that the game runs smoothly and the atmosphere is relaxed.
By the way, you will find dealers not only in stationary casinos, but also in the GOLDEN GRAND live roulette games. The result is an extremely realistic online gaming experience in real time that will make you feel right at home in a real casino.
With the prompt "Faites vos jeux", the dealer asks the player to place a bet. Players place their chips in the tableau themselves or ask the dealer to do so, and name (announce) the number or group of numbers they wish to bet on.
A roulette term you probably know from other casino hits is "Rien ne va plus". It means that no more bets should be placed in the current round. Players can no longer add to their chances of winning and must wait until the round ends.
