Roulette Etiquette – An ECR Guide
So, you think you know all about the timeless classic casino game that is Roulette? We hope that you’ve been brushing up your skills and having a few practice bets in preparation for ECR 2018. There’s a lot more than simply picking a number and throwing down a few chips. It’s time to review some of the finer points of the game.
You And Other Players
You may be more familiar with playing in an online or live environment more than a land-based casino, but don’t worry. It’s important during the game to consider those around you: don’t get carried away and start shouting and celebrating at the table, as it can be considered as bad manners.
While you don’t need to put on your finest evening wear, all casinos have certain rules of dress that are applicable, and these can vary from daytime to night time. You can check with your host casino, or at Portomaso Casino itself beforehand, so you’ll be aware of any specific do’s and don’ts before you enter.
You And The Dealer
Then there’s the dealer, or croupier. Listen to the dealer, and place bets only during the designated time. Once the dealer announces ‘no more bets’ then no more chips should be placed on the table. When it comes to the chips, each player will be given their own set of chips so that the dealer will be able to tell them apart from another player’s. Never touch chips between spin and payout time.
ECR Roulette Rules
Each roulette heat consists of 30 spins where you have to place the minimum bet on each spin. The minimum increases every five spins and anyone who still has chips left after 30 spins will progress to Day 2. Players who continue on to Day 2 will be given a ticket with their amount of chips, and they will continue with the chips they finished their heat with.
In Day 2 the players will continue playing until there are only 7 players left. We will then pause until 21:00 for the exciting ECR 2018 final. Do you have what it takes?
Relax and Enjoy
Are you ready for Europe’s biggest Roulette tournament? Just remember, go into the game with a clear head, a firm understanding of the rules, but most importantly, ECR 2018 is about having fun, and aiming for the €50,000 prize!
