Roulette Equipment - Table, Wheel, Chips

Roulette Table

If you would like to play roulette game, at first you have to know everything about roulette table. If you decide to play roulette, you would see two different types of roulette games which share the same rules, but absolutely different odds. In order to understand how these games differ, it is important to understand differences in their tables. First we look at the tables layouts that comprise the main difference, and later we will talk about roulette balls, chips, and wheel that is connected with layout.

Roulette Layout

Roulette layout has 2 main types – American and European. The difference of these games is described in the layout itself, as in American roulette except for 36 black and red numbered pockets you will also find two green pockets: 0 and 00. In European roulette there are the same 36 black and red pockets, but only one green pocket – 0. Due to this difference the odds of the game are absolutely different.

Looking at the layout of any roulette game you will see the space where inside bets are placed – there are all numbers from 1 to 36, plus one or two green pockets at the top. There are also space where possible outside bets can be placed.

Roulette Balls

Roulette ball is an important game element due to which the winning number can be determined. Dealer needs to throw it on the roulette wheel and wait until ball stops at one of the numbers. Usually, roulette ball is made by ivory or plastics. The size of roulette ball may vary to several inches.

Wheel Chips

In roulette game traditional casino chips are used. Playing online you get virtual chips, and you have no need to buy them in advance. In break and mortar casinos there is a strong need to buy chips before the game starts. Besides, in traditional casinos you have no right to touch your chips when the wheels starts to rotate, or when dealer announces the no bets can be made.

Roulette Wheels

Roulette wheel is totally dependent on the layout of the game. You will not find a game where the European layout and American wheel are used. The number of pockets on the roulette wheel is absolutely identical to the number of pockets on the layout. As well as roulette ball, roulette wheel is responsible for the result of the game. The wheel starts to rotate at the same moment as the ball, and the result will depend on what pocket of the wheel the ball droped.
