Roulette is one of the easiest and most popular games to be found in the casino.
When playing, your objective is to guess where the ball is going to land on each spin of the Roulette wheel. Simply place your bets on the appropriate square(s) found on the table and hope that the number comes up!
Roulette is one of those games that can be played for varied amounts of time, with even short-term players able to win large amounts of cash.
Betting on Roulette
This type of roulette betting is very specific bets and carries with it greater risk as Inside Bets less likely to come off. Of course when they do come in, your rewards are a whole lot better. Inside bets are listed as follows:
|Straight up||A bet is placed directly on one number||35-1|
|Split bet||A bet which is divided between two numbers||17-1|
|Street bet||A bet placed on a row of three numbers||11-1|
|Corner bet||A bet is divided between four numbers||8-1|
|Line bet||The bet is placed on 6 numbers spanning two rows||5-1|
Outside bets are a lot more likely to come in, but obviously the rewards are less. It’s important to note that the zero does not count as an Outside Bet.
|Column Bet||The bet is placed at the bottom of a particular column and covers all the numbers that are contained within it||2-1|
|Dozen bet||A bet covering 12 numbers. Players have the choice of low numbers (1-12), mid-numbers (13-24) and high (25-36)||2-1|
|Colour bet||A bet on whether the final number will be red or black||2-1|
|Even/odd bet||A bet on whether the final number will be odd or even||2-1|
|Low/High bet||Bet on whether the number will be Low (1-18) or High (19-36)||2-1|
When it comes to playing Roulette games, you’ll find there are a couple of different variants.
A standard European Roulette table will feature 37 numbers. Eighteen numbers are red, eighteen are black with one green zero.
Casinos earn their edge of 2.7% on the zero meaning that there is a 37-1 chance of the ball landing on a particular number but the payout if you guess this number correctly is only 35-1 plus your original stake.
American roulette will feature a Double Zero at the top of the wheel, giving you a 38-1 chance of winning while still only paying out 35-1 for a correct number. Therefore, where possible, we’d recommend playing European Blackjack as you will be giving yourself slightly better value at the table.
