|When it comes to casino games, none
are more classic than roulette. Mention a casino to someone, and the first
image that comes into their mind is, no doubt, a casino wheel spinning, and as
such, it is instantly recognisable to everyone. But exactly how does the
betting work when it comes to roulette and what are the different types of bets
that you can place? Mayfaircasino.com explains it
The Straight Up
This is one of the most simple bets in roulette, you pick
a number, place all your money on it, and if it comes in, then you win big. The
payout for such a bet is 35/1 so if your number comes in then you will have
made big money. With thirty-six numbers, as well as a single zero for European
Roulette, or a single and double zero for an American Roulette wheel, then your
chances of picking correctly are the smallest, but it cant be denied that
if it came up, it would be amazing.
The Split Bet
The split bet is similar to the
straight-up bet, except that you are betting on two adjacent numbers on the
table. You simply drop your chips straddling the line between the two numbers
and your bet is split between those two, so if either of them come in, you
This is a bet across three different numbers and is
placed by placing your chips on the end of the line that contains your three
numbers, again if any of the three come in you win, your odds are reduced
accordingly though, so you will get less of a payout.
The Corner Bet
The corner bet
adds yet another number to mix, and lets you split your bet between four
numbers on the table, you place this bet by placing your chips on the
intersection of the four corners of the numbers (hence the name) and then if
any of those four come up you win.
The Double Street Bet
This is also known as
the Six-Line Bet. This is a bet on six different numbers and is done by placing
your chips on the line between two different street bets on the table. This
covers you for the six numbers on the two adjacent streets. If any are spun,
then you win.
This is a bet on either the high numbers 19-36 or the low
numbers 1-18, with any number in that range being spun makes you a winner. This
is a classic double up bet paying 2/1. Simply place your chips on the word high
This is the one that everyone has heard about. Each
number on the wheel has a colour, red or black, and with this bet, you are
betting on the colour of the number being spun. Again this pays 2/1 and is an
easy bet for first-timers.
As the name suggests, here you are betting
whether the number spun is odd or even, simply place your chips on the name and
away you go.
