Etiquette for Playing Roulette

There are certain rules of etiquette that gamblers must follow when playing Roulette at a land based casino. These rules are enforced for the benefit of all players as well as the casino staff.

It is not recommended that a player try to join a Roulette game already that the dealer is already immersed in. Proper etiquette states that a new player should wait to join the game when the dealer is able to accommodate them. As soon as the dealer can they will give a new player the opportunity to buy into a game. The dealer then asks the player the denomination of chips that they want.

When it comes to betting in a game of Roulette players are instructed to do so when the bets from the previous round have been settled and the next spin has not yet taken place. After this has been completed the dealer will tell all the players at the table that there can be no more bets placed before the wheel is spun. At that point players are not permitted to touch their game chips.

It is also important that a player never touch the chips of any of their fellow players as doing so is seen as bad etiquette. Aside from being bad etiquette in general it also makes a player look like they are trying to cheat in the game. Players are never permitted to combine their chips with someone else’s.

After the number for the upcoming round is called the dealer settles the bets. Until this has been completed and the dealer has pushed a player’s chips in their direction no player is allowed to touch their chips.

Whether or not a player is expected to tip the dealer depends on where the casino is located. Roulette dealers in the United States expect a tip every few hands and a bigger tip if a player wins a large amount of money on any bet they make. However, many United Kingdom casinos discourage gamblers from tipping their dealer and in some casinos is it completely forbidden.

While players will sometimes place a bet on the dealer’s behalf in order to get the dealer money, giving a tip is the preferred method of rewarding them for a job well done.

Cashing out of a game of Roulette is something that should only be done during the betting period. Players must push their chips towards the dealer in order to cash out. The dealer then gives a player casino chips that equal the amount they won and players must take those chips and cash them out with the casino’s cashier.

These basic etiquette rules make a game of Roulette more enjoyable for everyone. Respecting the dealer and the other players at the table is the best way to successfully participate in this fun and easy classic casino game. Casinos appreciate players that are familiar with the proper etiquette and are able and willing to abide by the rules.
