Online Roulette

Advertisements

The origins of Roulette are not truly known. There are many theories as to who invented the game, and when it was invented. A surge in its popularity in the mid 18th century in Europe, along with other factors, suggest that Roulette was invented by the famous mathematician and early computer mind Blaise Pascal. Ironically, if this theory is correct, then with the large numbers of people playing Online Roulette, the game of Roulette has now come full circle.

Now that a brief history of the game has been discussed, we will now move on to some of the basic rules of Online Roulette. First, the outside bets. The main part of the Roulette Table has the numbers 1 through 36, plus 0 and 00 (depending on the type of Roulette, the double zero may not be present). The outside bets are placed on the edges of the table, and can be placed on either a group of numbers or one of the groups such as red, black, odd, even, low or high. If the ball lands on 0 or 00, all of the outside bets lose.

Outside bets in online Roulette

Below is a list with a bit more information on some of the possible outside bets.

  • Red/Black - When the ball lands on either a red or black number you are paid out even money;
  • Odd/Even - The same is true of an Odd/Even bet, which means you're paid out even money if the ball lands on either an odd or an even number;
  • Low/High - A low bet (on the numbers 1 to 18) and a high bet (on the numbers 18 to 31) also both pay out even money;
  • Columns - A column bet can be placed on any column. There are three columns on the table to choose from, and each bet pays out 2 to 1 if you win;
  • Dozens - A roulette table is divided into three "dozens", i.e. the numbers 1 to 12 (first dozen), the numbers 13 to 24 (the second dozen) and the numbers 25 to 36 (the third dozen). A bet on one of these dozens pays the same as a column bet, that is 2 to 1;

Inside bets in online Roulette

The bets that are known as “Inside Bets” are made on certain numbers or combinations of numbers either within the number layout or on the border. These bets are explained in the list below.

  • Straight-Up Bet - This is the simplest roulette bet available, and also the one with the best odds. It's a bet on a single number, and if you win you are paid out at 35 to 1;
  • Split Bet - A split bet is placed on two adjoining numbers and it pays out 17 to 1 if you win this bet;
  • Street Bet - A "street" is a row of three numbers. You make this bet by placing your chips on the outside line of a row. You are paid out 11 to 1 if you win this bet;
  • Corner Bet - A corner bet is also know as a square or quarter bet. It pays 8 to 1 if you win. You'll have to place your chips on any intersection of four numbers;
  • Five-Number line Bet - This bet is only available in american roulette. We don't recommend this bet, as it has a higher house edge than any of the other bets discussed here. The numbers involved in this bet are 0, 00, 1,2 and 3. You'll be paid out at 6 to 1 if you win this bet;
  • Six-Number line Bet - Also know as the line bet, the six number line bet is made by placing your chips on the top or bottom line of two rows exactly at the intersection of these two rows. You'll be paid at 5 to 1 if you win this bet.
