Roulette rules are pretty standardized, regardless of the particular variant you are playing. But there are subtle rule variations between different roulette games and it’s important to understand them so that you can gain maximum advantage. Before we dive into the deep end, let’s quickly review some of the more common roulette rules. Recall that there are inside bets and outside bets in roulette games. As a general rule, inside bets have higher payouts but they don’t come good as often as outside bets.
