roulette game rules

Roulette is a game offering a wide variety of betting options and techniques. Roulette is played at a roulette table with a roulette wheel and ball, and you are essentially betting on the number or color of the slot where the ball will eventually stop. The minimum and maximum bets vary, so check on your online casino’s site. Your bet payoff depends on the kind of bet you place, and there are lots of choices. It’s possible, for example, to bet on odd or even numbers, red or black (or the green “zero” slot), groups of numbers, and also columns and rows.

Below is a short description of the kinds of bets you can place, as well as their payoffs:

Single: betting on only one number. Payoff 35 to 1.

Split: betting on any two numbers by placing your bet on the line between them. Payoff 17 to 1.

Trio: betting on three numbers at their intersecting point (possible with either 0, 1, and 2 or 0, 2 and 3). Payoff 11 to 1.

Corner: betting on four numbers by placing your bet at their intersecting point. Payoff 8 to 1.

Four numbers: betting on the numbers 0, 1, 2, and 3 by placing your bet at the intersection of 0 and 3. Payoff 9 to 1.

Street: betting on a row of three numbers by placing your bet at the end of the row. Payoff 11 to 1.

Line: betting on two “streets” of numbers by placing your bet at the end of both rows, on the line between the rows. Payoff 5 to 1.

Dozen: betting on the “First 12,” “Second 12,” or “Third 12” boxes, as marked, covering 12 numbers each. Payoff 2 to 1.

Column: betting on a column of numbers by placing your bet in any of the three “2 to 1” boxes on the ends of the table. Like betting on dozens, columns cover 12 numbers. Payoff 2 to 1.

High or low: betting on the either the box marked “1 to 18” (low) or “19 to 36” (high). Payoff 1 to 1.

Red or black: betting exclusively on which color will come up. Zero does not count for either! Payoff 1 to 1.

Odd or even: betting exclusively on whether the number will be odd or even. Zero does not count for either! Payoff 1 to 1.
