Buying In

You may purchase special roulette colour chips when you sit down to play. To avoid disputes each player receives a different colour chip. These chips are good for that table only and you should change them up for cash chips when you are finished playing. These cash chips may redeemed at the cash desks.

Each roulette table has a minimum and maximum bet. Signage on all tables will update you regarding the limits on the table

The Dealer
Dealers are required to keep the wheel moving at all times, even between spins. They spin the ball in the opposite direction of the wheel, and they reverse the wheel direction with every subsequent spin. The dealer marks the winning number with a ‘dolly’. Bets may not be placed around the winning number for the next spin until the dealer removes the ‘dolly’ from the layout.

Playing Tips

If the number you want to bet is already covered with chips, don’t worry. It is permissible to stack your chips on top of another player’s chips. Your bets are defined by your colour which is unique to you, so bets do not get confused between different players. The dealer will alert to to the time when bets may no longer be placed just prior to the ball dropping into the numbers.
