I know in craps, every rolled is announced by the stick. For example, "Six, Six easy, No field six", etc.

This may seem somewhat of a naive question however, in roulette, should the dealer likewise verbally announce the outcome of every spin? For example, let's say the ball drops on #16. Should the dealer call: "16, red, even"? Or, should he/she simply mark the number and proceed to take/pay bets accordingly without saying a word?

I have not been in enough casinos in my life to know the standard practice, if there is one. Just seems like announcing the results verbally takes out any/all guesswork.

Thanks

In craps, the stickman's banter is both to let the dealer and players on the other side of the table know what the roll was, but also to lead the dealers in their procedures. I.E. "Take the don'ts, pay the line" is because procedurally, they should take the losers before paying the winners.

In roulette, where the one dealer is doing everything himself, and the dolly marker makes it obvious to the players what won, the announcement is in my opinion, optional.

But I still like to hear the number as well as the red/black - since I, and perhaps a lot of people who bet red or black don't know the number assignments. Saying odd or even seems redundant and makes you wonder why they don't also say high or low. But I digress.

That said, I typically hear the dealer announce the number, red/black as well as odd/even. So if you're trying to do an authentic casino experience, have the dealers announce all three.

I concur with DJTeddyBear, although, I've not often heard the croupier call Even/Odd, usually just (number, color). Most commonly, I see this procedure done at a full table or a table where players are playing on the 2-For-1 side of the layout, usually called prior to placing the marker and likely for the benefit of the players who may not be able to see where the ball landed.

I think they do in Europe - at least, that's the way they make it look on British TV (in shows set at Monte Carlo, the croupier will call "Noir" or "Rouge", then "Pair" (even) or "Impair" (odd), and I think something else).

What do your players want to hear?

Your roulette tables are different than most casinos, since you have 3 dealers working each table, instead of just one. A call makes sense, from the dealer working the wheel to the dealers working the layouts. The whole advantage of the dedicated layout dealers is that they don't have to look away from the layout - that goal is made possible when the center dealer (wheeler dealer?) calls the outcome.

"22, black, even."

If your layout dealers notice that an inside bet is getting paid, they might say "Winner" when placing the dolly.
May the cards fall in your favor.

They're trained to call it that way? I think that's interesting, the Odd/Even seems redundant to the number, in my opinion.

Actually, sitting here just trying to think about it (and I've not played Roulette at a ton of different places, or anything) I don't think I've ever heard an Odd/Even distinction called. I was trying to think about it and say, "The only casino I remember..." but I don't recall any actually doing that. Even the ShuffleMaster VegasStar Roulette machine I played once (just to try it out) was (Number, Color). Of course, the number/color also show up on the screen, so I don't even know why it needs to do that.

EDIT: JFTR, I'm not expressing doubt that they are trained to call it that way, just mild surprise, you'd obviously know better than me what they are trained to do.
