Tough Roulette is a very simple game, you need to know its basics before laying your first bet. This game is played on a revolving Roulette wheel which is divided into several numbered slots from 1 to 36. All Roulette wheels have a slot for 0. Some other games have an extra slot for a double zero (00). Every Roulette game has a batting table carrying all the numbers in the wheel. These numbers are further clubbed into two kinds of bets-Inside and Outside. When you lay bets on individual numbers and their groupings, these are called inside bets.

What are Inside and Outside bets?

You lay these bets on individual numbers and the following number combinations. 1. Individual numbers like 1, 2, 3, etc. The payout is 35:1. However, the odds are 2,6% in European Roulette and 2.7% in the American Version. 2. Split bets- You lay these inside bets on two numbers split by a line. Some examples are 2/3, 3/4, etc. In this case, the payout is 17:1. You can also lay Street Bets, Trio bets, etc. Each of these bets has different odds and of course different payouts. The odds of each of these bets vary across European and American Roulette.

A Street bet is a bet on any number within 3 numbers. These could be 1,2,3 or 4,5, 6, etc. These bets pay you 11:1. In a Corner bet, four numbers make a corner on the betting table, and you will have to bet on any one of these numbers. The payout is 11:1. In Six number bets, you bet on any number from two adjoining rows containing 3 numbers. Thus, you are picking just one number from 6 numbers for betting. The payoff in this case is 5:1. A Five Number bet has five numbers; 00,0, 1, 2, and 3. Payout is 6:1.

  • While online gambling is fun, please enjoy it responsibly.

You lay outside bets on selected number groupings. These are High/Low, Odd/ Even, Black/ Red, etc. Other outside bets are Column and Dozens bets. The last two pay you in the ration 2:1. You lay a column bet when you stake on any number within any of the 3 columns printed on the Roulette table. The Dozens bet covers three sets of dozen numbers- 1st 12, 2nd 12, and 3rd 12 numbers. In a Red/ Black bet, you stake on a number that is Red or Black. High/ Low numbers are from 1-18, and 19-36, respectively. Please keep reading.

Other Roulette bets

A Snake bet is a special bet that covers the following numbers: 1, 5, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 23, 27, 30, 32, and 34. These numbers form a snake-like pattern, hence the name. This bet pays 2:1. On the other hand, the Basket bet comprises the first 4 numbers of the European Roulette wheel:0,1,2, and 3. This bet pays 6:1. The next question is: Which Roulette bet is the best? There is no right answer to this question. It depends upon your skill and risk appetite. If you are a high roller, then go in for one of the many Inside bets.

On the other hand, if you have just begun gambling, then Outside bets should be good for you. You can pick up a table with the lowest betting limit and bet on Red/ Black and High'Low numbers. Is there a perfect Roulette strategy? The answer is; No. Though there are several betting strategies, each one of them works in a different context. You can deploy the Fibonacci strategy but only on tables having unlimited limits. We would strongly recommend creating a budget and sticking to it. Don't chase imaginary wins and keep losing your money. Walk away from your game upon hitting a winning streak.
