Objective of Roulette
The game of Roulette is played by spinning a small ball
around a wheel that contains 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
Types of Bets
You can place ten 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

board, while the longer lines, each holding twelve spaces,
are called columns.
