Roulette consists of a wheel and a table. The roulette wheel includes pockets numbered from 1 to 36. The numbers are depicted against either the red or black background. They are arranged randomly. There is also 0, which is usually shown against the green background. This order of the arrangement of numbers is used on all wheels for each kind of roulette. These numbers are displayed on the table layout, where they are arranged in ascending order from 1 to 36, grouped into three columns and divided into three dozens. Zero is located above 1, 2, and 3.
On the layout there are also sectors for betting on red/black, odd/even, manque/passe, columns and dozens. In addition, there is usually a field for bets on neighbors and sectors. It shows the roulette wheel with the same order of numbers.
The croupier announces the beginning of betting and spins the ball. Players place their bets until the croupier will not announce the ending of betting. He replaces inaccurately placed wagers and accepts call bets. All bets at online casinos are made by players. As soon as the ball lands on the pocket with the winning number, the dealer marks this number on the layout with a marker, which is called Dolly. Then he removes losing bets and pays out winnings. The dealer pushes the chips towards the winner but does not touch the winning bet on the layout.
The payouts for bets can differ at various casinos.
