The Basics of Roulette

The rules are simplicity itself.  A ball is spun and players wager on which of the 38 (37 for a European wheel) slots it will land.European table layout  Simple right?  But there a wide variety of wagers a player can make with different payouts, here they are:

Inside Bets

Bets made on the part of the table with only the numbers, including 0 and 00.  There are five different types of bets that can be made:

Straight-Up – Betting on an individual number by placing the chip directly over it.

                          Payout: 35: 1

Split – Betting on two numbers that border each other either horizontally or vertically,

            Example: 1 and 2 or 1 and 4. Not allowed for diagonal numbers, example: 1 and 5.  Place

            the chip on the line between the two numbers

             Payout: 17: 1

Street – Betting on three numbers in a horizontal row, example 22, 23, 24.  Place the chip on

                the edge of the row.

                Payout: 11: 1

Corner – Bet on for numbers that form a box, example: 19, 20, 22, 23.  Place the chip at the

                  intersection of the four numbers.American table layout

                 Payout: 8: 1

Six Lines – Bet on six numbers in two bordering horizontal lines, example: 1, 2, 3 and 4, 5, 6. 

                    Place chip like the Street bet but at the intersection of the two rows.

                    Payout: 5: 1


Outside Bets

These are the bets that don’t deal with the number spaces directly but rather with other parts of a spins outcome.  They are as follows:

Black, Red

1 to 18

19 to 36



All the above pay out at 1: 1

You can also bet any group of 12 numbers either in the three groups numerically on the table: 1-12, 13-24, 25-36, or in the three 12 number columns.

Both of this type of bets pay out at (depending on the casino) 3:1 or 2: 1

Remember, the table minimum dictates what you can bet where per spin.  Playing inside bets requires that the minimum must be played on the table’s numbered area per spin.  For example, a table with a $10 minimum means the player can bet 10 different numbers, place different amounts on different numbers, or spread it around on any of the 5 other types of bets, but there must be at least $10 in play in the numbered area per spin.  For outside bets, the table minimum must be played in each space the player wishes to wager.    Play Roulette
