How To Play Roulette

Don’t worry, although roulette may look rather complicated, it really is a simple game to play and can be picked up in just a matter of a few spins. So, if you’re ready to get started, let’s proceed with the Layout of the game that is shared by Pkv along with some of the best tips to enjoy a roulette session

Roulette Layout

At the start of every game, players will have the opportunity to place their chips on the layout (pictured). The layout is usually a green or blue piece of felt with numbers, colors, and words printed on it and are used to place and record bets for each spin of the roulette wheel.

As you can see, there are many ways to bet on the outcome of each spin and the payouts are adjusted in order to reflect the likelihood of you correctly predicting that outcome. In short, if you want to back long shots you can, or if you prefer wagering on events with a higher probability but lower profit then you can do that also.

The layout can be divided into two main sections, each having multiple betting opportunities of its type. Namely Inside Bets and Outside bets. For a detailed explanation, including examples of these bets can be placed, just select one of the two options below.

Inside bets are placed in the section between 0 and 36.

Straight Up

Straight Up bets are placed inside the lines on numbers 0 to 36. You may place multiple bets on as many numbers as you wish. Should your chips be placed on a winning number, then you will be paid 35/1. So if you place a £1 chip on a winning Straight-Up bet, you would receive a total of £36 back.

Split

Split bets are placed on the line between two numbers (e.g. 8/11). You may place multiple bets on as many Splits as you wish. Should your chips be placed on the Split of the winning number, then you will be paid 17/1. So if you placed a £1 chip on a winning Split bet, you would receive a total of £18 back.

Street

Street bets are placed on the end of a line of three numbers (e.g. 1, 2, 3). You may place multiple bets on as many Streets as you wish. Should your chips be placed on the Street of a winning number, then you will be paid 11/1. So if you placed a £1 chip on a winning Street bet, you would receive a total of £12 back.

Trio

Trio bets are only in two places on a single zero roulette layout. Namely the ‘T’ between numbers 0, 1, 2 and 0, 2, 3. You can only place Trio bets in these locations. Should your chips be placed on the Trio of a winning number, then you will be paid 11/1. So if you placed a £1 chip on a winning Trio bet, you would receive a total of £12 back.

Corner

Corner bets are placed where the lines cross in the middle of four numbers (e.g. 14, 15, 17, 18). You may place multiple bets on as many Corners as you wish. Should your chips be placed on the Corner of a winning number, then you will be paid 8/1. So if you placed a £1 chip on a winning Corner bet, you would receive a total of £9 back.

Six Line

Six Line bets are placed on the end of a line of six numbers (e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). Effectively the ‘T’ of the line between two Street bets. You may place multiple bets on as many Six Lines as you wish. Should your chips be placed on the Six Line of a winning number, then you will be paid 5/1. So if you placed a £1 chip on a winning Six Line bets, you would receive a total of £6 back.

Outside Bets

Outside bets are placed on the layout in areas other than 0 to 36. Outside bets usually require a higher minimum stake than Inside bets.

Columns

Column bets can be placed in any of the three boxes marked ‘2to1′. Column bets cover the twelve numbers on the vertical line above them. So if you placed a bet on the first column, you would win on the following numbers 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 22, 25, 28, 31, 34. You may place multiple bets on any of the Columns. If zero wins, you lose on any Column bet. Should your chips be placed on a winning Column bet, then you will be paid 2/1. So if you placed a £5 chip on a winning Column bet, you would receive a total of £15 back.

Dozens

A dozen bets can be placed in any of the three boxes marked ‘1st 12′, ‘2nd 12′, ‘3rd 12′. A dozen bets cover the twelve numbers on the three horizontal streets in front of them. So if you placed a bet on the first Dozen, you would win of the following numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12. You may place multiple bets on any of the Dozens. If zero wins, you lose on any Dozen bet. Should your chips be placed on a winning Dozen bet, then you will be paid 2/1. So if you placed a £5 chip on a winning Dozen bet, you would receive a total of £15 back.
