The Roulette Table Basics:
Roulette has been played since the 17th century, and emanates sophistication and elegance.
This game of pure STOP chance is filled with suspense, while hopeful players eagerly wait for the roulette wheel to stop and allow the ball to rest on their chosen numbers. As luck would have it, roulette is easy to learn! Your simple objective as player is to predict the ball’s final resting-place when the wheel stops spinning. The roulette wheel at Gold Club consists of 36 numbers plus zero and double-zero. Your wager on the roulette table can be placed on a single number, or be used to cover 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 12, or up to 18 different numbers during one spin. Here is a summary of the different roulette bets:

Inside Bets are bets placed inside the grid of numbers on the layout table. They include:
Single — placing a bet on individual numbers (like 00, 4, 23 or 35). Winning singles bets are paid at 35-to-1.
Split — placing a bet on the line between two numbers (like 2 & 3, or 13 & 16). If the ball lands on either number, the odds paid are 17-to-1.
Row — placing a bet on the first vertical line in a horizontal row of three numbers (like 7, 8, 9). If the ball lands in any one of the numbers in a row, the odds paid are 11-to-1.
Triple – placing a bet the intersection of 0, 2, 00. If the ball lands on any one of these three numbers, the odds paid are 11-to-1.
Corner — placing a bet on the corner of a group of four numbers (such as 19, 20, 22, 23). If the ball lands on any one of the four numbers, odds are paid at 8-to-1.
Top Line — the first 5 numbers at the top of the grid (0, 00, 1, 2, 3). If the ball lands in any one of these five spots, odds are paid at 6-to-1. To make this bet, place your chips on the left-hand side of the grid at the horizontal line separating the 0, 00 row from the 1, 2, 3 row.
Line — is a group of six numbers in two adjacent rows, all touching the same grid line. For example, 28, 29, 30 and 31, 32, 33 make up a Line. If the ball lands on any one of the six numbers in the Line, odds are paid at 5-to-1. To make a Line bet, place your chips on the horizontal street line at the left-hand edge of the grid.

Outside Bets are bets placed outside the grid of numbers on the layout table. They include:
Columns — a vertical column of numbers in the grid (for example; 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36). You place your bet outside the grid at the bottom of the column, in the boxes marked with “2 to 1”. If any one of the numbers in the column comes up, odds are paid at 2-to-1. Columns do not include either 0 or 00.
Dozens — either the first, second or third dozen non-zero numbers (1-12, 13-24 and 25-36, respectively). If the ball lands in one of the twelve numbers in a dozen, the odds paid are 2-to-1.
Red/Black — bet on whether the winning number Free is red or black. Winning bets are paid at 1-to-1.
Odd/Even — bet on whether the winning number is odd or even (excluding 0, 00). Winning bets are paid at 1-to-1.
High/Low — bet on whether the winning number is in the low half (1-18) or the high half (19-36). Winning bets are paid at 1-to-1.
For example, if you have a winning bet of 20 on a single number (paid at 35-to-1) you will get back your original bet of 20 plus 35 times your bet of 20 (700) for a total win of 720. As another example, if you have a winning bet of 100 on color Red (1-to-1 odds), you will get back your original bet of 100 plus another 100 for a total win of 200.
Players cannot wager more than the maximum for any particular bet in any one round of the game. Roulette has two sets of maximum limits: one for inside bets and one for outside bets (see Bet Type Table below). Minimum and maximum limits are posted at the bottom center of the screen.
