|Roulette is a game of placing bets. Before
playing one should be familiar with each kind of bet and
how to place it.
Roulette has several betting options but they can be categorized
into two groups:
- Inside bets
- outside bets
Inside bets are made on individual numbers or combinations
of numbers inside the layout or numbered grid. On inside
bets, player has to keep one thing in mind that your collective
bet must be at least the table minimum.
The different types of inside bets are
- Straight-up bet: It is one of the
simple roulette bets. In this player choose any one number
out of 37 numbers and place the chips down on that number.
If the ball drops into your chosen number you are paid
off at 35 to 1.
- Split bet: Roulette allows you to
place a single bet on two adjacent numbers. To bet on
two numbers player has to place the chips on the line
between two numbers. If either number comes up this bet
pays back 17 to 1.
- Street bet: It is similar to Split
bet except that in this case player can bet on three numbers
in a single bet. In this case, player place the chips
outside row of the numbers on which player wish to bet.
This bet pays 11 to 1.
- Corner bet: If player bets on four
adjoining numbers it is corner bet. In this case, player
place the chips at the point where four points meet. If
out of four any number comes up player gets 8 to 1. This
is also known as Square bet.
- Special line bet: It lets the player
bet on five adjoining numbers (00,0,1,2 and 3). If player
