A Simple Guide to Roulette Etiquette

Edvard Munch. By The Roulette

Observing proper player etiquette for Roulette ensures a pleasant experience for you and others around you. There are some rules when it comes to roulette etiquette although largely unspoken. Because of the close proximity with other players, there is a code of conduct and etiquette rules that you will have to follow. These are simple rules that need to be observed on and around the roulette table.

Because you and other people will be around the roulette table, there are some basic social courtesy rules that you will have to follow.

  1. Roulette is no doubt an exciting game, but it is extremely important to keep your excitement to a minimum. It is ok to celebrate, but remember not to take it too far. Do not shout in other people’s ear or make yourself the center of attention. In short, do not get overly excited. Similarly, observe your personal space. Do not step on other people’s toes or crowd their space such that they are uncomfortable or literally feel you breathing down their neck.
  2. Secondly, each player is given their own chips, with their own colors. These are your chips, and should not be mixed with others. The reason that you have different colored chips is so that the dealer can tell the difference between your bets and those of others. Even when playing with friends or family members, do not mix the chips as a way of making a bet. This is not allowed in the rules. Keep your chips and bet your own money to avoid any problems.
  3. Something else to observe when it comes to roulette etiquette is to pay attention to the dealer. When the dealer says that there are no more bets, they mean just that. Do not argue with the dealer or try to make a bet after the period for placing bets is over, usually after about a minute after the previous bets.
  4. Another thing to observe at the roulette table is to keep your hands to yourself especially between the roulette spinning and the ball stopping at a slot. Do not touch your chips between the spinning and the time it takes for the payout. This is the easiest way to get kicked out of the casino.
  5. You should also be polite to the dealer, and pay attention to their instructions. It is also considered good roulette etiquette to tip the dealer after the game. You may be inclined to tip the dealer more if you are on a winning streak. Additionally, if the dealer makes special arrangements to explain the rules to you, or simply move your chips when you cannot reach them, it is generally considered a good practice to give them something a little extra in tips. One thing to remember is that the dealer is not taking home all the money, it is the casino. So tip the dealer where possible, whenever you are playing at a casino or at Betway live casino.

Paying attention to these simple rules for roulette etiquette ensures that you have a good time and those around you enjoy the gambling experience. Simply following social courtesy will keep you out of trouble, and ensure a great experience for everyone.
