How to play roulette
Vernons Casino has the biggest and best collection of online roulette games. We offer a unique gaming experience thanks to the wide variety of Roulette games we offer. Since we know our players love roulette and deserve the highest quality out there, we've put together some rules which will help you play.
Most roulette games at Vernons casino are European Roulette, meaning the table has a single zero you can place a bet on. The golden rule is to place bets on the number or numbers you think the roulette ball will land on in the next spin. The smaller the chance you have of predicting the outcome correctly, the more money you win if you number does come up. For example, if you bet £1 on Red - meaning all red numbers and therefore half the table - you get £2 when you win but if you bet £1 on 32, you pocket £36 when winning.
All bets and their payout are displayed below:
|Straight Up (a single number)||35-1|
|Splits (two adjacent numbers)||17-1|
|Street (a horizontal line of three numbers)||11-1|
|Corners (a block of four numbers including 0)||8-1|
|Corners (a block of four numbers not including 0)||8-1|
|Line (six numbers on two adjacent rows)||5-1|
|Column (a vertical line of 12 numbers)||2-1|
|Dozen (a block of 12 numbers, 1-12, 13-24 or 25-36)||2-1|
|High (19-36 ) or Low (1-18)||Evens|

French bets can be a bit complicated as they cover different numbers spread across the table but Vernons Casino's own games such as Live Roulette, Roulette Express Premium, Roulette Express and Double Up Roulette have these bets set-up under the red 'Neighbours' button so you can place them in a few simple clicks. Essentially, these bets cover neat slices of the roulette wheel but they look quite different on the table where you place your chips. Here's a breakdown of all French Bets you can place.
Voisins de Zero: a bet on 17 numbers close to and including 0 on the wheel. It takes 9 chips which are spread as follows: 2 on a trio bet (0/2/3), 1 on 5 split bets (4/7, 12/15, 18/21, 19/22, 32/35) and 2 more chips on a corner bet (25/26/28/29).
Tiers: a bet on the slice of 12 numbers opposite 0 on the wheel. You need at least 6 chips as the bet consists of 6 splits (5/8, 10/11, 13/16, 23/24, 27/30, 33/36).
Orphelins: the two remaining slices of the wheel, covering 8 numbers. Divide 5 chips over a straight-up bet (1) and 4 splits (6/9, 14/17, 17/20, 31/34) to place the bet.
The main difference between American and European Roulette is that American comes with a double zero added to the wheel and table. On top, the order of the numbers on the wheel is completely different although most casinos will have the same sequence for the same type of wheel.
Payout remains the same, with 00 winning you the same as a bet on single 0 or any other straight up bet: 35/1. The odds are slightly smaller because of the extra number on the wheel. For example, the odds of winning a straight up bet is 36 to 1 on a European wheel but 37 to 1 for American Roulette.
