American Roulette

Each table has seven differently-colored chip sets without nominal value. The gambler can choose the chips of one color, which will be used during the game only by him. The gambler also sets the chips value (nominal) for the game period. Gamblers get the chips in exchange for the cache-chips. Leaving the gambling table You must change the gambling chips for the cache-chips because colored chips are not accepted at other tables and at the cash-desk; and if You come back to the gambling table after permanent disappearance chips will be estimated according to minimum value.

At the game start the dealer invites the gamblers to parlay: “Please, make Your bets”, and after that starts the ball.

For about three rounds before the ball stops the dealer announces: “There are no bets any more”. After that it is forbidden for gamblers to make, change or take the bets. After the ball stops the dealer pronounces the win number, gives the odd money from the bets over max, announces the win verbal bets, takes away the failure chips from the gambling table and pays for win bets according to established procedure. It is forbidden to move the bet of win number, annul or make bets on this number till the end of the payouts.

Disputable bets (before the ball stops) are qualified by the gambler to the extent possible. After the ball stops all the disputable bets are forbidden to be touched, moved, etc. Management of the casino accepts the decision concerning these bets according to the actual bet position as of the time of the ball stopping.
