Basic Outline Rules / How to Play
-The game is played with a wheel containing 37 or 38 compartments numbered from 1-36 and either one or two zeros. The numbers from 1-36 are divided up equally and coloured either red or black. A single ball is spun and will land in one of the numbered compartments.
-The object of the game is to predict which numbered compartment the ball will fall into by placing a wager on the appropriate number on the layout. Wagers may also be placed to predict a sequence of numbers. The best odds are given for predicting the number outright (“straight up”) and the odds diminish depending on the range of numbers in the sequence, line or block. Players are not normally limited in the number or range of bets they may place on the same “spin” unless otherwise specified locally.
-It is also possible to wager on whether the number will be red or black, odd or even, low or high (often called the “outside / even chance bets”). Each of these consists of eighteen numbers and normally pays even money, unless zero is spun whereby either half or all of the even chance bets will be lost, depending on the rules of the club.
