A roulette pretty much defines the jazz that a casino encompasses. The shimmery turret and fancy ball track of a Roulette will definitely catch your eye! Mind you, as much as it looks fancy, you got to follow some rules to even before you begin playing!
Timing Timing! Having a plan before placing a bet is of utmost importance. This will ensure that not too much time is wasted in thinking. Even though you only have one minute to make wagers, your bets should be fixed beforehand. Never wait until the last second and be forced to hastily toss your chips. Once you have exchanged your casino chips, you can immediately begin your roulette session.
Till when can you place your bets ? Only the croupier’s hand might tell. You can make wagers even after the ball is rolling but as the croupier waves his hand over the table and says, ‘No more bets!’ you have to wait until the ball lands in the pocket. The casino executives and CCTV’s placed all over, you cannot mess with the timings for placing your bets!
After you’ve decided to place your bet, the croupier will spin the roulette table. At this point you are expected to keep your hands to yourself. Using sneaky tactics by making new bets or adding chips will surely land you in trouble. Even the slightest move can bring about a change in the overall decision. One must not play hastily but compose themselves and make it an easier environment for the croupier and their fellow players. Here’s a Youtube video by Howcast explaining some roulette etiquettes :
You’re dealer is the mediator between your chips and the roulette that will get you stacks of cash! One must make sure they treat him with utmost respect. The croupier has to manage multiple jobs, he needs to be at peace to hand out the winnings correctly. Remember, Roulette dealers are allowed to take bets. Use the opportunity help the man earn a few extra pennies! On the contrary, never get frustrated on him if you lose the bet. A croupier may run the Roulette table but winning the game is totally based on your luck.
