What is casino roulette exactly?
You can define casino roulette as a game where a dealer sets a wheel spinning and drops a small ball onto it. The wheel is divided into numbered sections and the aim of the game is to bet on which numbered section the ball will end up in once the wheel stops spinning.
The numbered sections or pockets are red and black and there are 36 of them around the wheel’s edge. In addition, there is a 0 pocket coloured green and, in American roulette, a 00 pocket, also green, too.
To place a bet, look at the betting grid, with its three vertical and twelve horizontal columns, and click on the place on the grid where you’d like your virtual chip to go. After that, you can decide whether to go for an inside bet or an outside bet. Once you’ve placed your bet, the wheel starts to spin and the ball is dropped onto the wheel from the opposite direction. Eventually, the wheel slows down and the ball lands up inside a pocket. If the number on the pocket corresponds with the number you chose on the betting grid, you’ve won!
More ways to play online roulette
Players love online roulette because the rules are so easy that anyone can play. It’s as simple as picking the pocket that you think the ball will in and placing a bet on corresponding number in the betting grid. If your number comes up, you are the winner!
It can be more complicated if you want it to be, however. Nothing is stopping you from betting on a spread of numbers in the hope that the winning number will be among them. Of course, the more numbers you bet on, the lower the payout is going to be. At the same time, mathematically, your chances to win will increase. It works the same the other way – bet on fewer numbers and your chances to win are reduced, but the payout is higher if your number does come up.
Online roulette – the different ways to bet
Bets in casino roulette fall into two categories, namely inside bets and outside bets.
Inside bets – the ins and outs
Inside bets are so named because the player places their bet directly onto the betting grid. There are four kinds of inside bets:
- Straight-up bet – this is the most basic bet. Cover a single number or a group of numbers with your virtual chip(s) and receive a pay-out of 35:1 if you choose the winning number!
- Split bet – also known as a cheval bet, this is when you place a chip horizontally or vertically between two numbers on the betting grid to show that you are betting on them both, for a potential payout of 17:1.
- Corner bet – you guessed it, you make a corner bet by placing your chip where four numbers make a corner. Also known as a square bet, quad bet or carré (French for “square”), a corner bet offers a potential payout of 8:1.
- Street bet – a column of three numbers on the betting grid (eg 1, 2, 3) is called a “street” and you can place a street bet by placing your chips at the end of a street, for a potential win of 11:1 if one of them turns out to be the winning number.
How to place outside bets
Outside bets get their name from the fact that you place them on the outside of the betting grid, around the edges. Here are three popular types of outside bet:
- Even money bet – this means that if you place a bet and win, you get your stake back plus winnings of the same value, so the payout is 1:1. You can’t make this bet on the 0 or 00. Even money bets in roulette are red/black, odd/even and hi/low, that is, 1-18/19-36.
- Column bet – here you cover all the 12 numbers in one of the columns of the betting grid for a potential payout of 2:1.
- Dozen bet – with dozens, you place your chips on the first, second or third set of a dozen (12) numbers on the betting grid. Dozens also pay out at 2:1.
Once you get really stuck into it, there are whole a lot more betting options you can try when you play roulette online. It’s possible to combine a whole bunch of bets all at the same time, like doing streets and dozens together – almost like a crossword puzzle! The range of possible combinations adds a lot of interest to the exercise.
Some games even allow you to bet on the wheel rather than the table. “Neighbours” is when you base your on 5 numbers located next to each other on the wheel – pick a number and its two neighbours on the left and the right! Everybody loves good neighbours, in New Zealand as in Australia ...
Then there are call bets, where you simply “call” your bet instead of placing the chips on the table. This is one for the experienced players, as usually you will have to switch to expert mode to make a call bet when you’re playing roulette online.
Variations of roulette at All Slots Casino
European Roulette Gold: In addition to a spread of inside and outside bets, this variation allows you to place call bets and neighbour bets as well.
