The object of the game is to wager on which number will be the winning number once the spinning ball comes to rest.
Roulette chips are different from other casino chips because they can vary in denomination and color. Each player receives a different color chip which is good only on that table at which they are issued. A player must trade them for casino value chips before leaving that table. The specific value of each colored chip(s) is established when the player "buys in".
Players play by placing their chips on the numbered layout. When the players have most of their bets placed, the dealer will spin the ball in the opposite direction of the spinning wheel. Bets may be placed until the dealer announces “no more bets”, at this time players are required to stop placing bets.
After the ball falls onto a number on the wheel, the dealer places a marker on the winning number on the table layout. The dealer will sweep the layout of all non-winning wagers and pay all winning wagers.
Helpful hint: Players are not allowed to take any winning wagers off of the layout or to place any wagers until the dealer has taken the marker off of the numbered layout.
