## Roulette betting

On a standard European roulette table there are two types of bet.

**Inside Bets**

**Single Number bet** (AKA straight up bet) This is based upon predicting which single number, from 0 to 36, the roulette ball will land on. 35/1 payout.

**Split bet** (Upwards and Sideways, also called a Double or Two Number bet) A bet on two numbers next to each other on the roulette table for example 4 and 5. 17/1 odds.

**Street bet ** (also called a Three on a Row or Three Number bet) A bet on any three numbers in a row on the roulette table for example, 7,8 and 9. 11/1 Odds

**Four Numbers bet** (also known as a Box of Four or Square bet) A bet on a block of four numbers on the roulette table for example 10,11,13 and 14. 8/1 Odds

**Six Number bet ** (also called a Box of Six bet) A bet on a group of six numbers on the roulette table, which covers two rows of three for example 4,5,6,7,8 and 9. 5:1 payout

**Outside Bets**

**Dozen bet** A bet on the ball landing on a number within one of the three sections on the roulette table. eg, 1-12, 13,24 and 25-36. 2:1 odds.

**Column bet ** Bet on the ball landing on a number within one of the three columns on the roulette table. 2/1 odds.

**Even-Money bet** Bet on the ball landing on a number from one half of the roulette table. Either Red or Black numbers, Odds or Evens, 1-18 or 19-36. You get double your money back if you win.

They are the usual bets. Table limits are usually expressed in terms of inside and outside bets. For example, the limit on a single number might be £100 whereas the outside might be £1000. If the casino loses an outside bet, the only can payout twice as much as stakes. For example a £1000 column bet would cost the casino £2000. That £1000 on a number would cost the casino a whopping £35000.
