The Number Combo bet is very similar to the Chip Bomb Bet- it’s a 9 chip bet at it’s maximum (this will depend on which number you pick to be your “central number”), but instead of it being 9 straight up bets, the chips are squashed in, and it’s a combination of a straight up bet (on the lead number), plus corner and split bets. You can have a Number Combo on 5, 12 or 29 for example. It’s really best explained with a graphical representation, so below we have shown a Number Combo bet on the number 17 (Mike Ashton’s favourite number, alledgedly- you know the guy who owns Newcastle United Football Club. Anyway, we digress). You can compare this to the graphic on our Chip Bomb Bet page to easily understand the difference.
It’s similar to playing the Chip Bomb (or “Bombing the Number”) for obvious reasons, but also because the number of chips you will bet will depend on whether your lead number is in the middle column, or out at the edges of the betting area.

Why would you play this instead of the Chip Bomb? Well, it gives you more weight on your lead number. If that drops in playing the Number Combo, you are going to win the straight up bet on the central number, plus some split bets and corner bets as well.
On the other hand, if one of the surrounding numbers hits, you won’t get as good a pay out versus playing the Chip Bomb. You pays your money and you takes your choice, as the saying goes.

The Best Casino and Variant for The Number Bet?
Just like the Chip Bomb (and many of the other Call Bets for that matter), you’ll need a VIP roulette game like Premium Roulette Diamond. We’d recommend Spin Palace for this variant who offer a £1000 bonus.
