How to Bet on Roullete

Roullete is one of the oldest and most popular casino games in the world. It is simple enough for beginners to learn and play, but it has a lot of betting options for players who want to increase their chances of winning big. The game is played with a small white ball and a rotating wheel that has numbers randomized all around it. Players place their bets on a table and predict which slot the ball will land in once the wheel stops spinning. This game is based entirely on luck and is wildly popular at online and land casinos across the globe.

A croupier (that’s what they call the dealer in roulette) will spin the wheel and throw the ball into it. Then, the players can continue making their bets while the wheel is spinning until the croupier announces “No more bets.” After that, the roulette ball will bounce around the pockets and land on one of them. If a player bet on that number, section or color, they’ll win!

Outside Bets

The first bet you can make is the high or low bet, also known as pass or manque in French. This means you’re wagering that the winning number will be either of the first 18 on the layout (1-18) or the last 18 numbers (19-36). The 0 and 00 don’t count for these bets, so if they hit, you’ll lose. This bet is an even-money bet and offers a payout of 1-1.

Next up is the Dozens Bet, which pays 2-1 on a bet made in one of the three groups of 12 numbers on the roulette layout — the first 12, second 12, or third 12. This bet also doesn’t count the 0 or 00, so if those numbers hit, you’ll lose. This bet offers a higher payout but carries more risk than the inside bets.

Lastly, you can make a Straight-Up bet, which pays 36 to 1 on a single number. This bet requires you to place a bet equal to the total amount of chips wagered on all the inside and outside bets. The minimum bet for this is 40 chips and the maximum bet is 392 chips.
