European Roulette Bet Tips
The classic game of European Roulette is a game of chance consisting of a wheel with 37 slots and a small white ball that will eventually determine the player’s fate.
Players will find that the wheel consists of the numbers 1-36 which are colored in red and black followed by the “0” which is green. Wagers are placed to determine where the ball will land by placing chips on the roulette table in increments of $1, $5, $25 and $100. Each winning bet will be paid out according to the European Roulette payout table.
