Placing bets on the roulette table is fairly simple. If you wanted to bet on a certain number on the wheel all you have to do is place your chips in the middle of the number you would like to bet on. If you wanted to bet on the numbers 17 and 20 you would place your chips on the line between the two numbers. To place a corner bet on four numbers you would simply place your chips in the corner of the four numbers you want to bet on. If you have any questions on where to place your chips on the roulette table for certain bets just ask the dealer, they would be happy to help you out.
