The game of European Roulette is played by spinning a small
ball on a round wheel with thirty-seven numbered slots. When the wheel
stops, the ball comes to rest in one of these slots. The object of
European 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 placed.
How to Play:
Betting: Your chips
are stacked by denomination ($1, $5,
$25, $100, $500) at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Select
the amount you would like to wager on a given roll(s) by clicking the
left mouse button on the chip of that denomination. This activates that
specific chip denomination.
Next, place your bet on the Roulette table by clicking on a
bet field. To specify a bet that does not equal to an existing chip
denomination, simply click on another chip denomination after placing
your previous chip on the table. For example, to bet $30, click on the
$25 chip and place it on the table then click on the $5 chip and place
it on top of the $25 chip. You may repeat your last bet by simply
hitting the "0" button of your numeric keyboard. Other numeric keyboard
shortcuts are summarized below.
To place a bet in European Roulette, place your chips on the
table as described above. Depending on where you choose to place your
chips, you can "cover" (bet on) anywhere from one to eighteen numbers
with a single bet.
You can spin the roulette wheel by pressing the "Spin" button
in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen or by clicking on the
roulette wheel. The history of the previous winning numbers is
displayed in a table above the game menu. There are three different
colored numbers in the history table. The Yellow colored numbers mean
that they belong to the Black set of numbers. The Red colored numbers
mean they belong to the Red set of numbers and the Green colored number
is '0'. The "Pass" button may be used to spin the wheel without putting
a bet on the table.
Types of bet: You can
place eight different kinds of
bets on the European Roulette table. Each type of bet covers a certain
range of numbers, and each type has its own payoff rate. The short
lines of three numbers each are called rows on the board, while the
longer lines, each holding twelve, are called columns. The first five
types of bets are all made on the numbered space or on the lines
between them and are called inside bets, while the last three types are
made on the special boxes below and to the right of the board and are
called outside bets. These bets are tabulated below.
your chips directly on any single number (including zero).
your chips on the line between any two numbers.
0-1, 0-2, 0-3 combinations not allowed.
your chips at the end of any row of numbers. A street bet covers three
your chips at the corner where four numbers meet. All four numbers are
your chips at the end of two rows at the intersection between them. A
line bet covers all the numbers in either row, for a total of six.
a chip in one of the boxes at the end of the columns covers all the
numbers in that column, a total of twelve. (The zero is not covered by
any of the columns).
a chip in the box marked 12P covers numbers 1 to 12, 12M covers numbers
13 to 24, 12D covers numbers 25 to 36.
placed in one of these six boxes covers
the half of the board described in that box. (The zero is not covered
by any of these boxes.) Each box covers eighteen numbers. Low covers
numbers 1 to 18. High covers numbers 19 to 36.
There are two other types of bets available to players.
Racetrack bets: (also
known as horseshoe bets). These
are placed by clicking on a specific number in the racetrack, as shown
below. Each bet involves 5 chips. One chip is placed on the number that
the user clicks on and one chip on each of the 2 numbers on either side
of the number that the user clicked on, and one chip on each of the 2
numbers beside those numbers.
Action: The user
clicks on the '33' spot in the racetrack with the $5 chip cursor.
Result: A $5 chip is
placed on each of the following
numbers in the main number grid on number bet. 20', '1', '33', '16',
and '24'. Each of these bets acts like a normal straight-up one number
The other type of bet available to players is accessed by clicking on
the SPECIAL BETS button at the bottom of the screen. A menu of
the different bets will appear.
SPECIAL BETS all
involve placing multiple chips in
specific positions on the table simply by selecting one type of bet
from a list. Names and definitions for these bets are identified in the
table below. One chip is assigned per bet position unless specified

Once a spin is complete, the winning number will be noted on the

Setting your table bet
You may also set your table bet limit below the maximum
specified limit by selecting Bet Options from the Game Menu. The Modify
Table Bet Limit window will appear on the screen. To reduce your
maximum table bet limit type in the new limit in the appropriate box
and confirm it by typing your PIN in the box below. Click on the OK
button to complete the update. Please be aware that you can modify your
table bet limit no more than once per week (Friday 12:00 AM EST) and
that using the Modify Table Bet Limit function affects the bet limit
for all games and not just the game that you are currently playing.
Numeric Keyboard Shortcuts:
For keyboards without keypads, you must use the "Fn" key plus the
shortcuts above (e.g. Fn + Enter). Please note that these keyboard
shortcuts are offered as a suggestion only. Some computers behave
differently than others and therefore we cannot guarantee that the
shortcuts will apply to all computers.
You may turn on/off the Sound, Voice and Animation during the game by
clicking on the Options button located in the lower left-hand area of
the console. The setting is turned on when the checkbox is checked and
it is turned off when the checkbox is unchecked.
