In the last article, we covered outside roulette bets. They are basically all bets that are not made on any of the numbers.
The most popular ones that are located on the majority of roulette games are odd/even, red/black, 1-18/19-36 (low/high), dozens, and column bet. These are often used when you have a particular bankroll management strategy.
On the other hand, inside bets are all the numbers that you use to bet. The numbers are located in the middle of the betting table, and they take up the biggest part of it. They are surrounded by outside bets, so that’s why they are called inside bets in the first place.
As you know, you don’t always have to bet on a single number. You can bet on several at once, and that’s what makes roulette entertaining. Therefore, let’s review roulette bets that you can make when you use only numbers. Read on!
When you bet on one number, you’ve made a straight bet. The payout here is 35 to 1, and that’s the highest possible payout you can get in roulette.
If you place a chip between two adjacent numbers, you’ve made a split bet, meaning half of it is on one number and a half on the other. For example, you can make a split bet on 16 and 17. The payout of a split bet is 17 to 1
If you place a bet on the edge of a row, you’re making a street bet, meaning you place a bet on the three numbers in that row. For example, you can place a bet on 10, 11, and 12. The payout for the street bet is 11 to 1.
If you bet on four numbers at once, you’re placing a corner bet. The payout for this is 8 to 1.
If you place a bet at the corner next to 0 and 1 in American roulette, you can bet on numbers 0, 00, 1, 2, and 3, and this is usually considered a five-bet. The payout for this bet is 6 to 1.
Finally, if you place a bet between two rows of three numbers, your betting on both of them, and this is considered a line bet. The payout for the line bet is 5 to 1.
