What is the Orphelin’s Bet? Well, if you are playing online roulette with advanced betting options (Roulette Call Bets), then one of the options you might see is this bet (literally the “Orphans Bet”).
You might even have 2 orphan’s bets: one called Orphelin’s in Plein and one called Orphelins en Cheval. We are going to start with the Cheval version here, which is the most common and makes use of split bets (bets that straddle 2 numbers).
In this bet, you cover the 2 sectors of the wheel that are not covered by the Tiers Bet or the Voisins Bet. You cover 8 numbers with 5 chips (itself a lucky number) as follows in a mix of straight-up bets and split bets: 17,34,6 and 1,20,14,31,plus red 9.
5 chips (or multiples of 5 of course) are placed on the table as follows: 1 chip on 1 and 1 chip on each of the following splits: 6/9; 14/17; 17/20 and 31/34.
Minimum deposit of £10 , x45 wagering, Roulette & Blackjack 50% weighting. Bonus valid for 7 days. Not available to customers using Moneybookers/Skrill or Neteller as a payment method. Full T&Cs apply.
Confusing, isn’t it? Both types of bet cover the same numbers, but they do it in different ways. Orphelins en Cheval (orphans on horseback) cover the numbers with 4 spilt bets and a straight up bet on the number 1. Orphelins en plein covers all of the numbers with individual straight bets. The former is a cheaper way of covering the numbers for a given casino chip size. The latter pays out more (unless the number 1 hits, in which case they pay out the same).
