A roulette table has a beginning and an end every day. In the middle, there are endless games and endless rounds of the ball. But for those who are unfamiliar with the game, it can seem difficult to understand how the bets take place and how much time you have available to place them. In short, an apparently difficult mechanism, which in reality is very simple to understand. So today, we will take you to discover how roulette bets are made.
Games Management has the right to manage everything as it sees fit. This is a rule that you will not find written so directly, but you can derive it from the content of the official rules of the game of roulette, which is more or less similar for all casinos. Among the most important rules to remember are:
- The game management can decide to stop the game at any time
- The games management can decide to change the minimum and maximum of the table
- The decisions on disputes and controversies made by the management of the game are final
- You cannot bet a higher amount than the table highs, either alone or with the help of other players.
- The croupier is not responsible for bets made on behalf of the player
- Players cannot touch the winning chips until the dealer has finished making payments
- The player must always observe their bets. The combination will be paid on the table when the number is released.
It is not the time it takes to spin the ball, but the time between two throws, the most important factor of time factor to consider when playing roulette. The main goal of the casino is to make money honestly on the players’ skin.
The business plan is simple: it is based on the mathematical advantage of the dealer, or tax, which slowly erodes the player’s capital and ensures the house the big profits and on the fact that the players place different bets. All this translates into having more possible players and make them play as many games as possible.
To attract players, there are promotions and marketing campaigns; to make them play more, you have to turn the roulette wheel several times.
The reference number for the speed of the roulette is expressed in boules/hour or in strokes/hour or, to use the English terminology that is becoming increasingly popular, the spin number per hour. The higher this number, the more the table produces game volume and consequently, income.
However, we must also take into account the financial endowment and the type of table; in fact, the classic French roulette, in which the game volumes are higher and the payment times longer, can afford to travel much more slowly. Below is an indication of the average times in boules per hour:
- Classic French Roulette 25/35
- Fairoulette 35/50
- Roulette 40/60 Automatic Roulette 60/75
The speed of the game is also determined by the flow of people at the tables (except for the automatic ones) and by any longer procedures for payment or for disputes. However, a specific electronic device is connected to each table, which also detects the speed among the various parameters. The head of the table or the pit boss check the parameter and signal the croupier the rhythm to be kept.
