The 007 bet is another bet we have come across that sits with other Call Bets like Orphelins or the Voisins du Zero bet, I guess, but it is really more of a novelty or fun bet. I don’t believe that James Bond ever played this bet in Ian Fleming’s novels (he was more partial to playing the Labouchere strategy, even if it was fictionally).
This bet is played with 21 chips of the same value on the following numbers, including lucky 7 and 8 (for some) and the complete number 10:
Single Bets: 4,6,7,9, the number 14,18,19,21,28,30,32,33,36 Corner Bets: (1,2,4,5), (2,3,5,6), (7,8,10,11), (8,9,11,12), (13,14,16,17), (14,15,17,18), (19,20,22,23), (20,21,23,24).
It’s quite a neat way of getting 57% table coverage (57% odds of winning). The house edge is 2.6% on a European table.
Some people mistake the 007 for the Random Seven Bet (for obvious reasons). The latter really does mean a bet with 7 chips.
