### Basic Rules in Live Roulette

With Live Roulette being, in all aspects, a game that depends on chance, the rules of the game are pretty simple. The focal point of the game is when the ball starts rolling as it is tossed by the croupier onto the table with the spinning Roulette wheel. The number on which the ball will land depends on chance. The only thing that does not depend on chance in a Live Roulette game is the number on which you place your bet, which, of course, you will have to choose from amongst thirty-seven or thirty-eight different slots on the table.

The Live Roulette game starts with betting. The bets continue until the croupier says so. You can place your bet and you can still change it if the croupier has not declared the end of the betting. This is usually around the time when the ball is slowing down and is just about to rest on a winning number.

In placing your bets, you need to know what the number on the Roulette table stands for. The numbers are not just simply arranged on the table. There is no set order for the numbers. Even the positions of the numbers are basically left to chance. A black pocket can be next to yet another black pocket, as well. This means that the colors are also random, and are not in any alternating or patterned positions.

There are different kinds of bets in a Live Roulette game. When you bet on any of the numbers from zero to thirty-six, these bets are called inside bets. However, outside of these numbers, there are pockets numbered with “1st 12”, “2nd 12”, or “3rd 12”. These pockets are equivalent to dozens. When you place your bets on these pockets, these bets are called outside bets. The bets are then identified based on the number of the pocket, its color, and whether the number is an odd or even. Thus, in Live Roulette, you can place an inside or an outside, an odd or an even, a black or a red, and a high or a low bet.

There are different betting rules in playing Live Roulette. The winnings of each kind of bet may differ. There are terms that are used to determine the bets placed. For example, a “straight up” bet pertains to a bet on any number. A “split bet” is a bet placed on the line between two numbers. This means that you are betting on both numbers. You can also try a “street bet”, which is betting on three numbers in a row. Betting on four numbers is called “corner bet”. Aside from the basic bets, there are also different betting combination such as the “line bet” which means betting on two street bets, or the “ column bet”, and the “dozen bet”.

There is a maximum bet for every Roulette game, which all depends on what is called ‘table limits’. The table limit or the maximum bet allowed is displayed on the Roulette table. This can vary from one Live Roulette game to another. The maximum bet applies only to straight up bets. For the other bets, the maximum bet are usually multiplied by the number of pockets you bet on. For example, you placed a split bet on two numbers. You will then multiply the straight up maximum bet by two to get the maximum bet for that wager.

Despite these basic rules, a Live Roulette game is usually a carefree game where players are just trying their luck. So when you play a Live Roulette game, make sure that you are only doing it to have some fun.
