Another popular Call Bet (or Announced Bet) is the Tiers Du Cylindre bet. We have illustrated this below on a French Roulette table layout. The bet means literally "Thirds of the Wheel". It is also called the Series 5/8 bet
It covers around one third of the wheel as follows:
The tiers du cylindre bet is placed on 12 numbers on the opposite side of the wheel to the Voisins du Zero bet (not to be confused with a Neighbours Bet where you can choose the pivot number). Another bet in this family is the Orphans Bet which mops up all the numbers not covered by Tiers and Voisins.
Number 5, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 23, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36. All the bets are Split Bets over 2 numbers that payout 17:1. The total bet is 6 units (we have bet 60 above with 10 unit chips). You'd get 18 units back including your bet if you won.
This is the second biggest call bet behind Voisins du Zero and one of the more frequently played Call Bets. Your odds of winning are 32% on this bet (12/37).
With most of these call bets, you''ll need a French Roulette variant or a Premium Roulette wheel with an exotic bets option (in the advanced mode in some cases). We'd recommend Betfair with a £100 match
