Live Dealer Roulette is a easy game to play, but don't let its simplictiy fool you. There can be strategy and tactics when making that decision on which number, or group of numbers, that you would like to wager. You can place bets on single numbers, groups of numbers, red/black, or even/odd. What numbers should you bet on? You can use any numbers that you want- birthdays, anniversaries, “magic numbers”, numbers that have come up before, numbers that haven’t come up in a while- the possibilities are endless! Wagering in live dealer roueltte can be as simple as you want, or as calculated as you want to take it. At any rate, you just place your bet on the board and then wait for the number to drop.
Once the wagering process starts to slow down, the croupier will flick a small ivory (or plastic, in some casinos) ball in the opposite direction of the spinning wheel. You can continue to place wagers on the board until the ball begins to slow down and the croupier tells the table “no more bets”. At this point, all wagers are stopped.
The ball continues to bounce around in the wheel until it finally rests in one of the pockets. The croupier will state what the winning number is, whether it is even or odd, and whether it is red or black (or in the case of zero, green).
After the spin is finished and the winning number has been announced, the croupier will sweep up the losing bets with a wooden rake and then pay off the winners. Winning bets are left on the table which the players can either leave or remove.
