Casino Roulette is a very exciting and thrilling game that is played at casinos. It allows for players to win a large sum of money while only wagering a small amount. The largest payout is 35:1 so wagering a $10 bet could earn you up to $350, but like other casino games progressive blackjack the house always has an advantage.
How to Play:
Roulette is a very easy game to play as players bet on a specific number and color. There are numbers 1-36 alternating black and red colors. There is also a green point labeled 0 and in American Roulette there is a second green point labeled 00. The green points are what create the house advantage. After placing your bets a little ball will roll around the wheel until it falls on one of those points.
The betting of this game can be very exciting as players can make both inside and outside bets. An inside bet consists of betting the number of the pocket that the ball will land in or selecting a range of pockets. An outside bet occurs when players bet on groups of numbers, a specific color, or they may also bet on whether the number will be odd or even.
Types of inside bets include straight up, split, street, corner, six line, and trio. A straight up is just as it sounds as you bet on one single number and not on a group. This type of a bet would have the worst odds of hitting, but would also payout the most. A street bet is betting three numbers in a single horizontal line and you would place your chip at the edge of the end of the line to show the table that you would like to make this bet. Another type of bet is a corner and this consists of betting four numbers in the shape of a square.
Some types of outside bets include 1 to 18, 19 to 36, even or odd, red or black, and dozen bets. Even or odd bets are just as they sound and you would place a bet on either an even or an odd number. A dozen bet consists of a player betting on the first, second, or third groupings of numbers.
As I said above the worst odds are made by betting a straight up or by betting on a single number. A street bet which consists of betting on 3 numbers has 11 to 1 odds and betting on a corner gives you 8 to 1 odds. The best odds you will find are by betting on all the even or odd, black or red, and so on combinations which payout a 1 to 1 amount. These bets occur most frequently, but can also cause you to lose a large amount if you bet to high.
