How to Play Roulette

In the game of Roulette players can wager on either a single number or a range of numbers, on the red or on black, or on whether the number is even or odd. To determine the number and color, a croupier spins the roulette wheel and rolls a ball in the opposite direction. The ball eventually falls into one of 38 numbered and colored pockets on the wheel (0, 00 and numbers 1 to 36).

How to Place a bet

The same Inside and Outside Bets found in European Roulette are also available at Roulette tables. Inside Bets are bets on numbers straight up or on a line between numbers that select a combination of numbers. Outside Bets are any of the bets in the boxes surrounding the numbers on the table.

To place Inside and Outside Bets:

1. Choose a chip value.
2. Click on the bet you wish to place on the Roulette table.
3. Click on Spin or Turbo Spin.

Special features

The Advanced Panel

All of the special features available in the game are located in the Advanced Panel. To open the panel, click on the Advanced tab in top right corner of the game screen.

Neighbor Bets

Neighbor Bets allow players to wager on numbers that appear next to a certain number on the Roulette wheel. For example, a 1-number Neighbor Bet on 12 would include 12 as well as 29, the neighboring number on the left, and 8, the neighboring number on the right. Players can place up to 4-number Neighbor Bets (four numbers that appear adjacent to a number on the left and on the right sides).

To place Neighbor Bets:

1. Click on Neighbor Bets in the Advanced Panel.C
2. Click on the number of Neighbor Bets you wish to wager on (1 – 4).
3. Scroll over the Roulette Wheel image to preview the bet you wish to place.
4. Click on the number you wish to bet on. Chips are placed on all relevant numbers.
5. Click on Spin.

Hot/Cold Numbers

The Neighbor Bets window will always showcase the five numbers that have won the greatest number of rounds (Hot) and the five numbers that have won the least number of rounds (Cold). Players can quickly and easily bet on one or all five Hot or Cold Numbers from the panel. Every number on the Roulette wheel is categorized by a level of 'hotness' or 'coldness'. This is illustrated on the wheel in the Neighbors window by designated colors that fill the pie-shaped space below each number on the Roulette wheel.

Clicking on All hot or All cold will place five chips on the table – one for each number.

If two numbers were called the same amount of times, the number that was called last is hotter.

The five coldest numbers are displayed only after enough spins occur for them to be determined.

Hot and cold numbers are determined per session only.


The autoplay feature allows you to automatically play a chosen number of successive game rounds without having to place your bets and click on the Spin button each time.

1. Click on Autoplay in the advanced panel.
2. Choose the number of spins you want to play automatically.
3. Click on Start.
