Types of bets in roulette

There are two basic types of bets in roulette: inside and outside. The inside bets are:

  • straight bet: a bet on a single number
  • split bet: a bet on two adjacent numbers
  • street bet: a bet on three numbers in a single row
  • corner bet: a bet on four numbers sharing a common corner
  • double street bet, or line bet: a bet on six numbers in two adjacent rows
  • trio bet: a bet placed on three numbers, one of which is a zero
  • basket bet: a bet on the first four numbers on a single zero roulette (0-1-2-3)
  • top line bet: a bet on the first five numbers on a double zero roulette (0-00-1-2-3)

The outside bets are:

  • bets on numbers one to 18 or 19 to 36
  • bets on colour
  • bets on even or odd numbers
  • dozen bet: a bet on a group of twelve numbers: the first twelve (1 to 12), the second twelve (13 to 24), or the third twelve (25 to 36)

Special bets

The version of roulette developed by NetEnt offers special predefined bets. Among these are bets on numbers directly neighbouring each other on the wheel. As shown on the right (image courtesy of Wikipedia), these bets include:

  • voisins du zéro (neighbours of zero): seventeen numbers adjacent to zero between 22-25 inclusive
  • jeu zéro (zero game): seven numbers adjacent to zero between 12-15
  • le tiers du cylindre (thirds of the wheel): twelve numbers between 27-33
  • orphelins (orphans): last eight numbers between 17-6 and 1-9

In the picture below, you can find the placement of bets on voisins du zéro using red chips and on le tiers du cylindre using green chips. These bets are located under the special bets tab or directly at the table. Serie 0/2/3 corresponds with voisins du zéro, and serie 5/8 corresponds with le tiers du cylindre. In addition to these special bets, you can also bet on five adjacent numbers of your choice. The game provides the success statistics of recently played numbers, and ratios of recently successful even/odd and black/red groups.

Payout table

The payout ratios for each type of bet are same across all variants of roulette. These are calculated as the probabilities of winning, assuming the absence of the zero on roulette.

Winnings are paid out as shown in the following chart:

Type of bet Winnings (as multiples of original bet) Probability of winning, European roulette (ratio, %)
Colour 2 18/37=48,6%
Even/odd 2 18/37=48,6%
1 - 18 / 19 - 36 2 18/37=48,6%
Street bet 3 12/37=32,4%
Corner bet 9 4/37=10,8%
Double street bet/line bet 12 3/37=8,1%
Split bet 18 2/37=5.4%
Straight bet 36 1/37=2,7%
