One of the great things about roulette, is that it has such a rich variety of bets that you can make on the table. The only other game that comes close is craps. You’ll find all of the different bets in the menu -it’s always worth studying your options- you’ll get more out of the game.
People have been betting on the wheel for centuries, and there has been no shortage of players who reckon that they’ve found the key to winning, through a combination of different types of betting layouts.
In this section we are going to run through the different types of bets you can make, ranging from the basic “bet on the red or black” which everyone can understand, to the more complex and exotic call bets like “Voisins du Zero” (neighbours of zero) or the Jeu Zero bet, for example, which all the best roulette casinos should cater for.
Outside and Inside Roulette Bets
There are 2 main types of roulette bet you can play, (if we ignore the call bets for a second). These are the Inside Bets and the Outside Bets- the names refer to where you place your chips at the table.
Straight Up: a bet on a single number. Place your chip in the middle of a number square. Pays 35:1. (You’d use this in the Pivot Roulette System, for example).
Split Bet: bet on 2 adjacent numbers either vertically or horizontally. Put your chip on the line between the 2 numbers. Pays 17:1.
Street Bet: bet on 3 numbers on one line across. Put your chip on the edge of the line at the end (either side). Pays 11.6:1
Corner or Square Bet: bet on 4 numbers in a square. Put your chip on the intersection of the lines between the numbers. Pays 8.5:1
Six Line Bet: 2 adjacent street bets. Put your chip where the 2 streets cross. Pays 5.33:1

Outside bets are generally lower risk bets with higher roulette odds BUT the payout is lower, and you may not be able to play these with your welcome bonus at some casinos. Many casinos categorise bets into low, medium and high risk depending on the table coverage. A bet on the red is normally considered medium risk. A bet on 2 columns would be considered low risk as you are covering almost two thirds of the table (remember there’s that pesky zero pocket (or pockets in American Roulette).
1 to 18: a low bet: on one of the first 18 numbers. Pays 1:1.
19 to 36: a high bet: one of the high 18 numbers. Pays 1:1.
Red or Black: a colour bet. Pays 1:1.
Even or Odd: another “even money” bet- you are predicting that an even or odd number will drop in. Pays 1:1.
Dozens: a bet on the 1st dozen (1-12), 2nd dozen (13-24), or 3rd dozen (25-36). Pays 2:1.
Column Bets: bet on 12 numbers in a column. Place the bet below the final number in the column. Pays 2:1.
Roulette Bets Tip
Mix it up with low table coverage and high table coverage bets to smooth out the volatility. If you do like playing only a few numbers on the wheel, give yourself enough budget to withstand a long run of losses. The lower the table coverage, the higher the volatility in general (and the higher the bet payback on a win)
There are also a number of more exotic bets that you can play in roulette, called “Call Bets” because you can call them out at many casinos and the croupier will place them for you. If you are playing online roulette, you´ll find most of them on the more advanced variants like Premier Roulette Diamond which includes options for the Roulette Snake Bet and Jeu Zero (Zero Game), for example.
The most common Call Bets are the Voisins du Zero (Neighbours of Zero) and Tiers du Cylindre.
Special Roulette Bets
You also have a number of special bets like the Complete Bet, Black and Red Splits and the Chip Bomb. You will only really find these on more advanced wheels online (unless you make up the bet manually). You can find details of all of these bets in this section.
We discuss how to weight your bets on our 10 Roulette Tips page- make sure you check this out as well.
It depends on your strategy. If you want to cover more of the wheel quickly, then an Outside bet will help you. You can cover the same percentage of the table with multiple single number bets, but it just takes longer to lay the chips. Most decent online casinos allow you to save a custom roulette bet so that you can play it again and again (say if you have favourite numbers). This can be a good way of mixing things up.
They all have the same odds. Red/Black is the most popular, I don´t know why. If we are playing a system on the Even Money bets, like a Martingale sequence, we tend to mix it up. So one sequence we will play red or black until we win or hit our limit. Then we play odd/even. Then we play 1-18/19-36 and so on. There is no mathematical reason why that is better, I guess we are just superstitious.
