Roulette Bets

Roulette is one of the most popular classic casino games available at Bitcoin roulette casinos. To start playing it you first need to know a number of important elements of roulette betting and payout table.

The goal of the roulette game is to guess the number where the ball will land when the roulette wheel stops spinning. And while this is the most well-known type of bet, there are others that increase the player’s odds of winning. So, although these bets may have lower payouts, the game becomes much more interesting and fun.

A roulette table consists of the spinning roulette wheel and a betting grid. Bitcoin roulette comprises the numbers 1 to 36 arranged randomly. In American roulette there are two pockets with zeros (0 and 00) and in European roulette there is only one zero (0). The houses of the zeros are coloured green, and the remaining numbers are half placed in a black house and the other half in a red house.

Roulette bets are divided into three categories:

  • Inside bets
  • Outside bets
  • Announced bets

Inside bets offer better payouts but are less likely to occur. Announced bets are not available in all casinos so it is not necessary for most players to be familiar with them.

Inside bets

This type of bet is not suitable for players who do not like to take risks: the odds of winning are small, although the potential profits are high. Most bets are on a single number and in case of victory the prize will be 35 to 1. Although players can bet on zero or double zero, if playing American roulette the odds are 37 to 1 while in European roulette the odds will be 36 to 1.

 

Outside Bets

Outside bets are bets placed outside the grid of numbers. These bets always cover large pools and therefore have higher winning odds, but also less attractive prizes. They are the most popular bets in roulette, especially for beginners.

This means that you can for instance bet on the first twelve numbers of the roulette wheel, as well as on the second twelve numbers or the third twelve numbers. Another possibility are the numbers 1 to 18 or 19 to 36. Furthermore, it is also possible to bet on all the red or black numbers.

Assuming you choose the multiple outside bets, you potentially increase your chances of winning.

 

Announced bets (call bets)

Announced bets (also sometimes called call bets) are a special type of bet a player can announce to the dealer before placing chips on the roulette table. These bets often cover a specific section of the roulette wheel, meaning that the numbers are not next to each other on the roulette table layout.
