Großes Spiel

Großes Spiel in Spielbanken

Roulette, cards and games of dice in casinos are identified as “Großes Spiel”. In Casinos money is replaced by so-called chips, which represent a corresponding money value (e. g. 5€, 50€). Money is exchanged into these chips before gambling.


Chips can be placed on red, black, odd or even but also on numbers from 0-36. Chances of winning are graded differently, from the simple value of the bet (e.g., black or red) up to 35 times the value of the bet. A ball is thrown into a spinning roulette wheel and stays on a number at the end. Winnings are paid out immediately after the end of the game.
