Basic Roulette
Roulette has been played since the 17th century. Your simple objective as a player is to predict the ball's
final restingplace when the wheel stops spinning. The roulette wheel at California Casino consists of 36 numbers
plus zero and double zero. Your wager on the roulette table can be placed on a single number, or be used to cover
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 12, or up to 18 different numbers during one spin. Here is a summary of the different roulette
bets:
Straight Up
This is a wager on a single number, including zero (0) and double zero (00). If the ball stops at your number, your
bet pays 35 to 1.
Split Bet
This is a wager on two adjacent numbers in the roulette table, which is placed on the line dividing the two
numbers. If the ball stops at either number, your bet pays 17 to 1.
Street Bet
Street bets cover three numbers. The chip is placed on the outer right boundary line of the roulette table, next to
the corresponding row of three numbers. If either number hits, the street bet pays 11 to 1.
Corner Bet
Corner bets cover four numbers. The chip is placed on the cross where the four numbers intersect. If any of the
four numbers hit, your corner bet pays 8 to 1.
Five Bet
This bet covers the following numbers: 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3. The chip is placed on the outer right boundary line of
the roulette table, between 00 and 3. If either number hits, your five bets pays 6 to 1.
Line Bet
A line bet covers the six different numbers in two rows of three numbers. For example: 4,5,6 plus 7,8,9). The chip
is placed on outer right boundary line of the roulette table, where the line dividing the two rows intersects it.
If any of the six numbers hit, your line bet pays 5 to 1.
Column Bet
On the short side of the roulette table are three boxes marked "2 to 1." By placing your chip in one of these
boxes, you mark all twelve numbers above it (0 and 00 excluded). If the ball stops at either of these numbers, your
bet pays 2 to 1.
Dozen Bet
You can bet on a group of twelve numbers by placing your chip in one of the three boxes marked "1st 12," "2nd 12,"
or "3rd 12." A winning dozen bet pays 2 to 1.
Red/Black, Even/Odd, and Low/High Bets
A bet placed in one of the boxes on the left, long side of the table covers half of the roulette numbers (excluding
zero ). Each box covers 18 numbers. These bets pay even money, 1 to 1.
