Roulette Etiquette Tips

Roulette School

Roulette is a popular casino table game and often draws quite a crowd around each table. Unlike card-based casino games, many players can place their bets on the same table and during the same spinning of the wheel. This can lead some players to feel intimidated or for others to act rudely or inappropriately. Frankly, there is no need for people to behave badly at the roulette tables and understanding some simple roulette etiquette that is internationally recognized will take you far at the tables.

Land Casino Roulette Etiquette

The first basic rule of roulette etiquette is common politeness. This simple gesture to those around you and to the dealer will go a long way. If you want to place your bet on a particular number but can’t reach the table just simply ask someone who is closer to the table. Be clear about where you would like your bet placed and thank the person who helped you. Most importantly, don’t just throw your chips on the table. This is considered very rude and could possibly displace another player’s bet and actually cause him to lose his money when he actually had placed a winning bet. If this happens to you, remain calm and alert the dealer that your chips had been knocked over. Casinos have cameras which can be checked and the issue can usually be resolved easily and quickly.

Players should know when to place their bets. The dealer will give players a couple of minutes to place their bets before he starts spinning the wheel and the ball. As the wheel and ball are in motion players can continue to place their bets until the dealer announces: “No more bets” which is usually when the wheel and ball start to slow down.

It is commonplace to tip the roulette dealer when you win big. Remember that he makes an hourly wage like most other service-industry jobs and a tip is always appreciated. Use your judgment when deciding what the amount should be and think about how much you won and the dealer’s attitude during your time at his table.

Internet Casino Roulette Etiquette

When playing roulette at your favorite internet casino, there are a few other things to keep in mind. First and foremost, if you are playing a software-based version of roulette it will be hard for you to make any mistakes. There won’t be any pushing or shoving or people rudely leaning on the table. You will not have to ask someone closer to the table to place your bets. The software version is quite strict when it comes to placing bets and there will be a point during each spin where the software will simply not allow you to place any more bets on the table.

However, now that many internet casinos are offering Live Dealer Roulette games, it will be important to keep a few things in mind when playing. Live Dealer Roulette utilizes high-quality streaming video to give players the most realistic land-based casino without having to leave their homes. Players should know that the video feed is only one way so the dealers cannot see the players but the players can watch all of the action on their computer screens. While there is no need to make sure you are dressed appropriately or not leaning against the table, players should note that they still must observe the dealer’s instructions and cannot place bets after the dealer makes his announcement. You may chat with the dealer and other players at the table but do not act rudely and do not ask the dealers inappropriate questions. Keep your chat conversations limited to game play.

Remember that you can’t make an etiquette mistake when playing software-based games but players should behave correctly when playing in a land-based casino or at an internet Live Dealer Roulette table. Follow the simple rules and you will enjoy a great gaming experience.
