The game of American Roulette is played on a table with a green mat and a wheel divided into 37 pockets from 0 to 36, both inclusive. Pocket 0 is green and the rest are black or red, alternately. The game consists of guessing the number the ball thrown by the croupier will fall into. Bets in American Roulette are made with chips you can get at the tables or at the cashier. A sign on the table will indicate the minimum and maximum bets.If you wish, you can place your chips yourself or give them to the croupier who will place them on the mat on the most recent numbers or lucky numbers you ask for. You must always check they are placed correctly. The prize amount that can be won depends on the type of bet and the amount you play.
You can recognise American Roulette chips by their colour (eight different colours on each table) and the different pictures each one has on the various tables. You can choose both the colour and the value, which must be equal for all the chips you buy. Before leaving an American Roulette table you must change your chips as they can only be used on the table where they were changed.
