The game of roulette in a live casino attracts a very special kind of player. Roulette players are typically laid-back and enjoy a casual game as opposed to, for example, the frenzy of craps. As with any other casino game, you want to understand the etiquette that exists at a roulette table so that all the players can have an enjoyable positive experience during the game.

When you join a roulette table, place your money on the table and then ask the dealer for chips. The dealer is not allowed to touch your hands and get the money directly from you. The money needs to be on the table. You will find that this rule is true for most of the casino table games.

You can start betting in a new game only after the dealer is done removing the losing bets and giving out the winning payoff. Placing new bets too early is easily the biggest mistake that new roulette players make. Avoid it at all costs. The best way to do so is to simply observe who is doing what, and to never be the first person at the table to start placing bets or moving the chips.

Typically, you can join a new game any time after the ball lands in one of the pockets of the roulette wheel and the dealer is done paying all the winning bets.

To improve your odds at the game of roulette, you first of all need to remember that at a roulette table, the numbers that are meaningful to you, such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduation dates and so on, have no any special meaning. However, they can make your experience at a casino more fun for you.

When you play the game of roulette, it is important to stay realistic and remember about the odds of winning. If you want to maximize your chances, you need a solid mathematical strategy.
