Roulette Bets

Basically, the roulette is based on a simple concept. A ball spins on a wheel and stops in a numbered slot. The players having a bet on that number are winning, while the others are losing. However, if you see a betting table of a roulette game, you will understand that this simple concept is connected with some advanced betting strategies and practices.

High winning chances

The smallest odd to win at the roulette table is ½. In order to achieve that, you must place a bet on Odd/Even, Red/Black, and Small/Big. A 7 for example, is a red, even, and small number. Any bet of one dollar placed on those boxes on the roulette table wills double your stakes. However, most advanced players would consider this kind of betting as boring. Here are some bets with higher risks but also with higher winning opportunities.

Medium roulette bets

The medium roulette bets will have odds of 1/3. The 36 numbers are divided into three separate sections, and you could place bets on any of them. Those sections are 1-12, 13-24, and 25-36. Of course, there is always a possibility to get a "0" as a winning number. In this case, all the bets are lost. Therefore, even if we are saying you have 1 chance out of three to be a winner if you are placing a bet on the 1-12 section, the chances are smaller.

Some casino software could help you to calculate the exact odds, but be careful about the terms and conditions. Some casinos might catch you with that software and they will be entitled to cancel your earnings. Moreover, they might also suspend your account in certain occasions.

Highways and streets

If you are looking at a roulette-betting table, you will see three straight lines containing pairs of two numbers on every column. Those are called highways and they are also available for betting. Again, you will have a chance of 1/3 to win with such bets. There are also groups of two numbers placed on columns, and those lines are called street. The streets will give you a winning chance of 1 to 6, and this kind of bet can be considered a risky one.

Groups of numbers

The most popular bets on American and European roulette are based on numbers. You could bet on one or two neighbored numbers, but also on four or even three numbers at a time. This is where you could test your skills by covering the table with some smart bets. After a while, you will discover a certain flair that will allow you to place only winning bets. Moreover, the high tournaments and competitions will give you the opportunity to play against the best roulette players, making you a part of the roulette elite club.
