AIM OF THE GAME
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
HOW TO PLAY
Your chips are stacked by denomination (£1,
£5, £25, £100, £500) at
the bottom right-hand corner of the screen above
the game menu. Select the amount you would like
to wager on a given hand by clicking the left
mouse button on the chip of that denomination.
The amount wagered per hand may be increased or
decreased by placing the mouse on the stack that
you wish to add or subtract from your bet. Each
time you click the left mouse button you will
add a chip from that pile to your planned wager
amount. Likewise by clicking on the right mouse
button you can decrease your planned wager amount.
You may repeat your last bet by simply hitting
the "0" button of your numeric keyboard.
Other numeric keyboard shortcuts are summarized
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 left 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.
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:
BET TYPE EXPLANATION
Place your chips directly on any single number

Place your chips at the end of any row of numbers.
A street bet covers three numbers.
Place your chips at the corner where four numbers

Place your chips at the end of two rows at the
intersection between them. A line bet covers all

1 to 12, 12M covers numbers 13 to 24, 12D covers
numbers 25 to 36.

by any of these boxes.) Each box covers eighteen
numbers. Low covers numbers 1 to 18. High covers
numbers 19 to 36.
Once a spin is complete, the winning number
will be noted on the table with a marker. Winning
bets will have a "W" chip placed on
top of them.

shall be lost if the roulette ball comes to rest
in the compartment marked zero (0).
