Roulette, a long time tradition in European casinos, is an exciting game that is easy to play. While the exact origins of Roulette are not known, it is thought to have originated in China while the modern game was developed in Paris in the 18th Century. The name "Roulette" is derived from the french word meaning "little wheel".
Object of the game
The dealer (also known as the croupier) spins a roulette wheel containing 38 compartments in one direction, while rolling a ball into the wheel in the opposite direction. The winning number is determined by where the ball comes to rest among the 38 compartments.
Playing the game
Select a chip denomination and place your bets on the table in the various betting areas. Please be aware of the bet limits displayed on the table. Inside bets
consist of all the numbers on the betting layout (0, 00, 1 to 36), while the outside bets
consist of all the other betting areas. When placing an inside bet that covers more than one number, the maximum bet limit is multiplied by how many numbers are covered.
a corner bet (4 numbers) allows for a maximum bet that is 4 times the limit of a single number.
Once your bets are placed, click the Spin
button to start the wheel spinning. Bets cannot be made or removed once the wheel is spinning. Payouts will be determined based on which numbered pocket the roulette ball comes to rest in.

As you move your mouse across the betting area of the Roulette table, you'll notice that a text message will appear toward bottom right corner of the screen displaying the current number covered by your mouse pointer and the bet placed on it. The text will appear in blue if the bet is sufficient and in red if the bet is less than the minimum required (or invalid) for this spot. An upside down red arrow also points out any invalid bet on the table. Each time you left-click over the Roulette table, you will place your current bet amount on the table -- adding to any chips that might already be there. To remove your current bet amount from the table, right-click on the table.
You can change the denomination of the chips you will be adding or subtracting from your bet by selecting one of the chips on the left side of the screen above the status panel. The chip that is highlighted represents the amount by which you will change your bet.
If you wish to place a $25 bet, make sure the $25 chip is selected by clicking on it. The $25 chip should now be highlighted. You can then left-click in any of the betting areas to place a $25 bet. If you left-click a second time in the same betting area, you will add another $25 chip to your bet for a total of $50. You could then select the $5 chip and click in the betting area to increase your bet to $55. Right-clicking in the betting area peforms the opposite function by removing the amount from your bet.

button will light up indicating you may click it to start the wheel spinning. Once the wheel is spinning you can no longer add or remove bets. When the wheel comes to a stop, the winning number is determined by what numbered compartment the ball comes to rest in. If you placed a bet on that number, or a bet on any position that spans that number, you will win the appropriate payout (see Payouts
