Our plastic roulette wheel sets use high quality wheels made in Taiwan. Beware as we tried some China suppliers a few years ago and the cones were mostly warped resulting in significantly unbalanced results. All our sets include blank coloured chips that make determining players bets easier to manage than other sets put together by people that do not know how best to operate a roulette game. You might also require some cash chips and you can find some cheap numbered chips inside our Numbered Poker Chips or just use your own play money from other board games.
How to run a roulette game at home for family
Our roulette sets include a quantity of 6 different colour chips that are not printed with any value and we recommend assigning them a value of 1 so there’s no mistakes with difficult multiplications. Each different colour is issued to a different player so that it is easy to identify each individuals bet on the roulette layout. Note, if you expect more than 6 players you can buy up to 8 extra colour chips from us.
To begin with we’d recommend giving each player 20 colour chips and four 25 valued chips. At some point it is almost inevitable that all of the colour tokens used by a player will be won by that player. To avoid these limited quantity of coloured chips with the croupier from being exhausted winning bets can be made with suplimentary chips with numbers printed on them, called cash chips. These cash chips can used to exchange for more colour chips later on from future losing bets.
If more than one player starts to bet cash chips that all have the same colour so that the bets owner is less easy to determine it would be a good idea for them to put one of their colour chips with the common cash chips to help avoid arguments about who owns big winning cash chip bets. Each cash chip is the same colour and usually a has a more elegant pattern.
Players might also get low or run out of chips before the end time and want to carry on playing. Hence why they’re also given cash chips so when they are low on colour chips they can get more blanks from the bank.
You probably ought to set a maximum period of time to play. Then at the end time say there will be three more spins of the wheel so everyone can then strategise how to make their final bets to try and win by having the most valuable chips at the end. They might win a prize of some sort, it certainly gives more importance to the game.
There is a rare possibility that someone may bet and win using the largest cash chip you have and so the bank is unable to pay the winner and so that player has effectively busted the bank. You could try and avoi this by setting a maximum bet of say 25 on a single number but in our opinion this is not so much fun. Of course you can write IOU’s or find other tokens (monopoly money vouchers perhaps or make your own!) if do you want to go on forever.
