Online Roulette

Basic Rules

Roulette does not have any strategies or skill requirements to play except to follow the basic rules you will find on a roulette table guiding minimum betting amounts and betting patterns. This is true of online roulette as it is true of land based roulette casino. Land based casino roulette table permits up to six players. On the online version you play alone wherever you are with your computer. Players are given different colored betting chips to help both the players and the dealer distinguish their chips. The chips have different values and represent the amounts you are betting for. Each roulette table has its minimum betting requirement and is $20 in many online casinos in the regions mentioned above.

You would be required to purchase the chips before taking a seat at a roulette table and you would cash them out at the table before leaving. It is possible for a player to request a higher value for his chip since the indicated chip values are limited but players much higher betting limits than indicated on the chips.

The American roulette table layout has 38 lots numbered 0, 00 and from 1 to 36. Online roulette has a similar lay out though it is important to note the European version is more popular online than the American. The part of the betting area that is numbered is referred to as the 'inside' betting area and consists of a number of bets starting from single number bets to six number bets. There are also outside bets which include various classification of numbers.
