# Roulette Rules and Payouts

Playing roulette online is very entertaining to the player and easy to learn. The concept is very basic in understanding, the player wagers and bets against the casino by placing wagers on number and color combinations that appear on the wheel. The ball then spins in the opposite direction on the wheel. When the ball stops in one of the pockets, the winning results are announced/displayed and all winnings are distributed to the player. Understanding how to play the game of roulette is certainly not the same as knowing how to win at the game. The information one will find within this article will be the roulette rules and payouts.

The bet must fit into the posted lower limit, this is why it is very important to learn the roulette rules for betting per the table. If the smallest bet allowed is \$5.00 and the player is playing with \$1.00 chips then they must bet at least 5 chips to equal out the total bet. There are many games that separate the inside and outside bets when it comes to meeting the minimum bets. This simply means that the player is not allowed to split on the lower limit bet between the inside and outside betting areas.
