Roulette Table Etiquette
We mentioned in an earlier article that there is a certain period of time in which you are allowed to place bets. In between each spin of the wheel, the dealer normally gives all of the bettors about 60 seconds to place their bets. When the dealer spins the wheel, you still have a few seconds to place a bet. When the dealer raises his hands and says "no more bets", you must refrain from making a bet and wait until the next spin of the wheel.
When the balls drops into a slot on the roulette wheel, the dealer will place a marker on the table that corresponds with the slot that the ball dropped into. He then removes all of the losing bets. After that, he will pay off the winning bets, and remove the marker from the table. Players are not allowed to touch their chips during this time, or else they could be removed from the casino.
Above all else, just be curteous. Make sure that you don't knock over anybody else's chips. Make sure that you are respectful to the dealer and the people around you, and also offer the dealer a small tip every 10th spin or so. And also, have a fun time playing roulette, but don't get too excitable or drunk, as nobody enjoys a person elbowing them or screaming in their ear. Just have a fun time and be respectful, and hopefully karma will reward you.
