Standard roulette game rules and playing methodology:
The players begin by making their bets, placing chips on the spaces of
the layout in the manner permitted by the applicable rules for the area/state/country
etc. The dealer spins the wheel in a counterclockwise direction then flips
the ball on the bowl's back track so that it travels clockwise. Players
may continue placing bets while wheel and ball are still in motion until
the dealer yells (says) "No More Bets!". He does this as the
ball slows down and is about to drop off the back track. Bets placed on
the layout after this announcement are not valid and must be returned
to the player(s).
When the ball falls and comes to rest between any two metal partitions
of the wheel, it marks the winning number, a zero or double zero, the
winning color and any other permitted bet that pertains to a winning number
or symbol. The dealer immediately announces the winning number and its
color, and he points with his index finger to the corresponding number
on the layout. Some dealers place a plastic peg on the winning number
so all can see clearly.
He then collects all losing bets, not disturbing the chips resting on
winning spaces, and pays off the winner or winners with the correct amount
of chips due each winning bet. The signs 0 and 00 win for the bank all
bets except those placed in 0 and 00.
On the first spin, the dealer has no fixed point from which to spin the
wheel or ball. Thereafter he must spin both from the winning pocket into
which the ball dropped. The croupier dealing the wheel is obliged to spin
the ball with the hand nearest the wheel.
Some casinos give the player the privilege of being able to ask the inspector
or casino operator to substitute another dealer, and this may be done
provided one or more of the other players at the table do not object.
No such substitution may take place after the dealer has thrown the ball
