Roulette is played on a game table featuring a numbered wheel and a betting board. The wheel itself is divided into compartments or pockets, each numbered. The numbers 1-36 are on every roulette wheel, and each is either red or black. Depending on which game variation is being played, there will be either one extra pocket (a green zero) or two additional pockets (a green zero and a green double zero).

Players place their wagers on the betting board. Boxes represent all possible bets, and players place their chips on their desired bet or bets. We cover the different bets below, but they include options such as betting on a single number or whether the number will be low (1-18) or high (19-36). We have an example of what a game table looks like in an online casino.

  • Straight Up: a bet on any one single number, paying out at odds of 35:1.
  • Split Bet: covers any two numbers that are adjacent on the betting board. Odds of 17:1.
  • Street Bet: a bet on any of the rows of three numbers (1-3, 4-6 etc.). Odds of 11:1.
  • Corner Bet: covers of group of four numbers. Odds of 8:1.
  • Line Bet: covers two rows of three for a total of six numbers. Odds of 5:1.

The available outside bets are as follows, none of which cover the zero (or the double zero if there is one).

  • Columns: the grid is divided into 3 columns of 12 numbers, and you can bet on one or more of these columns. Pays out at 2:1.
  • Dozens: you can bet on the low dozen (1-12), mid dozen (13-24), or high dozen (25-36). Pays out at 2:1.
  • Colors: an even money bet on whether the number will be red or black.
  • Odd/Even: an even money bet on whether the number will be odd or even.
  • High/Low: an even money bet on whether the number will be high (19-36) or low (1-18).
