How to Play Roulette
At Isle of Capri® Kansas City, we know that there's a glamorous allure to roulette. We've seen gamers from all over come to our casino to enjoy everything roulette in Kansas City has to offer: the wheel, the risk, the strategy and most importantly, the chance to win it big. Still, some gamers avoid roulette in Kansas City simply because it can initially seem complicated. The intrigue of the bouncing ball, awhirl in a sea of red and black, feels intimidating… prompting some to seek prospective jackpots elsewhere.
Don't miss out on the fun of roulette; this game is known for leveling the playing field for all experience levels and abilities. Many don't realize that – even if they've never played before – they have the same chance of winning as more seasoned gaming veterans. Best of all, the rules and strategies are fairly straightforward. Knowing the rules and just a few simple tips can help put you on the path to success in mastering this wheel of fortune.
Roulette in Kansas City: The Basics
Up to 8 players test their luck and skill against the croupier (dealer). American wheels have 38 numbered pockets ranging from 0-36, plus an additional "00" number. In total, 18 pockets are red, 18 are black, and the two zero pockets are green. The ultimate goal of players is to accurately determine the ball's final wheel destination.
Players must place their bet before the croupier spins the ball, using colored chips to designate their predictions. Gamers can bet based on color, number or combinations of numbers. Once bets are placed, the dealer spins the ball on the wheel's outer rim, allowing it to roll until it eventually comes to rest in one of the designated numbered spaces.
Tips to Build Your Roulette Strategy
Once you know the rules, you can begin to build your gaming strategy. A few simple tips can help:
Have a bet budget before you choose a table.
Bet on outside chances. Many players want to start off with specific numbers; however, outside chances of Odd/Even, Red/Black, High/Low, while offering smaller returns, will help you achieve an overall winning streak.
Pay attention. One of the biggest ways to boost your odds of winning is to get in the know with previous rounds. Take note of certain trends in your rounds. For example, if you notice that black pockets seem to be getting a lot of play on your wheel, you should consider betting black. Many successful players acknowledge that noticing consistencies in play can have a significant impact on success.
Practice. Gaming can make even the most confident person a little uncertain. If you feel a little unsure of your strategy, start at a free table. Here you will have an opportunity to sharpen you skills a bit. Once you've hit your gaming groove you are ready to move onto a betting table and test your luck with the chance to win it big.
Reserve your wins. As already noted in tip #1, should always go into any game with a solid idea of your overall playing budget. However, you should also have a plan for when you win. As you begin to play, reserve your winning earnings so you never exceed your initial budget. Once you've hit that number, cash out and move onto another table game.
